I have owned this car for a since Feb. 2002, and its been reliable and fun to drive. This contour has the 2.5 V6, which is a fast, high-performance engine. Handles well, brakes great and most of all, it passes cars on the freeway with ease.
My most favorite features of the 1998 Contour SE is; The power seat on the driver side is extremely confortable and moves to almost any position. I also like the power entenna.
I think if Ford was to bring back the Contour, it would be a great thing if they built in a dash board system that had a better place for cup holders and a climate control system.
