1997 Ford Contour Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Worst Features

Get the causes for the check engine light coming on, fixed.

Review

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.


Best Features

The V6 engine along with the 5 speed transmission puts this car over the top.


Worst Features

Perhaps a little bit more horses under the hood would be a great improvement. Although at 170 hp, I shouldnt be complaining.

Review

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.


Best Features

acceleration and handling


Worst Features

styling (exterior)
