1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought it used in '99 and was reasonably pleased for a couple years, except for the endless list of recalls. It's always eaten tires because it won't stay aligned (no, it was never in a wreck). To date I've spent $200+ to replace the o2 sensor, $350+ to replace a melted fuze box(heater fuze didn't blow like it was supposed to), dipstick replacement(yep, the dipstick broke), 2 alternators in < 18 months, and the transmission went out this week. Perhaps the buyer of this pile of scrap metal I'm about to sell will do OK, since I've already replaced most moving parts, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Favorite Features
Easy to tow.
Suggested Improvements
Just discontinuation, which Ford has already had the wisdom to implement.
