I bought A 96 Ford Contour with less than 100000 miles on it. Drove it one day transmission went out. Had it replaced and then less than 6 months later same thing. I had to replace the water pump, timing belt, serpintine belt, battery, and battery wire on this in 6 months and not to mention after replacing the cable. The car caught fire! Never buy anything stamped found on road dead again!
It has great gas mileage when it runs right
They have already scraped the car. The best improvement that anyone looking to buy one can do is don't. Look at something else. If you have one sell it quickly!
