1997 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car for my son but decided to keep it for myself because its zippy acceleration would only have caused me much grief. I enjoyed the car while I had it, but it ultimately saved my life in a nasty head-on car crash. The car withstood a 110 mile per hour impact. After a couple weeks in the hospital and months of rehab, I can honestly say the car performed as Ford planned. Between the air bags and the engineered crush points, I'm happy to be alive to submit this review.

Favorite Features

Acceleration and gas mileage. This Sport model was a sharp looking car.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the water leaks to the trunk during rainy weather.
