1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan

Review

When this car was purchased, I had just gotten rid of an 1990 Ford Taurus (never had a problem, just died). Since I've bought this car I've suffered through a blown head gasket, 2 alternators, a water pump, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, alignments, tires, brakes, rotors, battery, gas cap opening problems, check engine light that won't go out, brake fluid & oil that leaks from nowhere (mechanics can't find the source of leak), headlights, lights burning out inside vehicle, along with various electrical problems. Yesterday the speedometer finally went for the long goodbye. I've never spent so much money for car repairs & maintenance in my years of driving. This car completely stinks!

Favorite Features

The comfort while driving.

Suggested Improvements

The entire car! Since Ford doesn't make this anymore, they must've realized that the design & parts completely are a waste of time! Don't waste your time & hard earned money with this car!
