Review of the 1997 Ford Contour

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Great peformance with either engine when equipped with a manual transmission. A worthwhile alternative for those who have BMW tastes, yet are restrained by a Ford wallet.

  • Cons

    The Contour still uses Ford's, small-lettered stereo which is hard to tune without taking your eyes off the road. The back seat is inadequate for most full-size adults.

  • What's New for 1997

    The addition of a Sport Package for the GL and LX models and the inclusion of a standard trunk light are the only changes for the 1997 Contour.

Another ford glitch

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

The biggest problem I have with this car is the Check Engine Light. Every other year it comes on and I have to go and spend about $500-600 to get it fixed. That is why I give it a 2 on reliability.




Great car

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

I've had this car for about 6 months now and it's great. I have leather seats, a sporty V6 with a 5 speed transmition, sunroof, mags....etc This is a great car which is fun to drive and has a very large amount of features. Ford did a good job on this car.




Contour skeptic (at first)

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

I am young at an age of 18 and i was given this family sedan and was not very happy with it at first. I drove it around one week at the beach after i graduated from High School and fell in love with it. The acceleration alowed me to beat those japanese cars who had all the accesories. I dropped 17 by 7's on it and improved the already perfect handling. I love my car, it is a blast to drive.
