Nice looking hunk o' junk

1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan
Well, I started off the first year with really no issues except the air conditioning compressor blew. Well, the past 4 months have been HECK! The tranny has started to knock, the windows get stuck down, the alternator and/or starter is going, the abs light flashes, the o2 sensor blew, the hood release snapped from the cable, drive side headrest broke, and the engine stalls at stop lights. It's been a good first car,up until now, I just can't wait to upgrade!
The front seats are pretty roomy for a small car. The trunk is HUGE. Engine is pretty peppy for a small car, excellent handling.
Every cheap part put into this car. Transmission, cup holders, seats, hood release.
