100,000 Miles in a Contour SE
By bcarpenter03 on
1997 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan
We have had this vehicle for five years
and like it alot. We got it with the V6
and 5 speed manual transmission, and it
has a totally different character from
what you get at a car rental agency. It
is a lot of fun to drive.
The acceleration and handling surprise
everybody who rides in it. It is also
very comfortable for the front seat
passengers and OK for those in the back.
It has been very reliable, requiring no
repairs other than maintenance items.
The only complaint I have is that the
original tires only lasted 25k miles.
Part of this is due to the factory
caster and camber settings (the rest is
due to Firestone...)
