1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

I have a 98 SE with the 2.5L six and the sport package. I love driving the car because of its steering response and handling, and I'm pretty satisfied with its power (everyone wants a faster 0-60 time, right?). Despite all of this, I can't forget that the tranny burned up at 30k miles. It didn't help matters that the dealer's service department misdiagnosed the problem as something else the first time I took it to them. I like my Contour, but I'm not sure I'll ever buy another Ford.

Favorite Features

steering, handling, acceleration, enough room to haul my small family around in, great price

Suggested Improvements

other than the transmission, I could do with a bit more legroom and cupholders that are not cupholders in name only
