1996 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Well,I've owned this contour v6 for over a year and so far haven't had any major repairs ,just some negligible minor flaws,trunk release cable snapped,thus solely use keyless entry to operate,oil pan gasket shows minor leaks and power steering fluid line also minorly leaks.Aside from above it's fun to drive and reliable .Conclusion pros:well executed interior design and materials other than plastic on dashboard,brake and steering feels,light clutch,close gear ratio,acceleration at highway speed,4 discs,roadholding personality cons:too stiff ride,fit and finish,rattles and sqeaks,torque steer,road noise,low end grunt,rear legroom

Favorite Features

For this price range is handsdown bang for the bucks,nicely comfy leather bucket seats,lit vanity mirrors,4 discs,wide v6 powerband,laudable premium sound system,remote keyless entry,moonroof,power driver seat

Suggested Improvements

this set of shocks and springs belong to bike!!,shake me like hell on uneven pavement,could reduce torque steer and number of plastic bits on dashboard,that's all my complaints!!
