Why not improve the this car?

1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan
I wish Ford would continued to build
this vehicle. Anyway, the transmission
failed at 123,000 and I had it rebuilt
at Cottman. Coming home from work, the
transmission again failed at 209,000.
I wasn't expecting the transmission to
fail again. I decided to use Slick-50
transmission lubricant. Some people
have warned me about using additives
for the transmission. Anyway, none of
the forward gears are working. I am
considering replacing it with another
CD4E transmission because I love the
car so much. I have also replaced the
timing belt and radiator.
Its favorite features are its looks,
handling, big trunk, and brakes.
First consider bringing this vehicle
back into production and I would
suggest going to a CVT transmission
