1998 Ford Contour 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car since we had two kids, and the other car I had was a Beretta, (two door). We needed a 4 door. The car is quick, and comfortable. My wife loves driving the car. The only complaint is the oil leaks! When I first bought it it was leaking from what appeared to me was the front gear cover and oil pan. It wasn't too bad, now it is definitely getting worse. You can smell the oil burning on the exhaust when it leaks. So now it is time to fix it, but not sure I want to spend the $850 the dealer wants to repair. Car has 97k on it got it used with 62k. Have had no real problems with it. Just maintenance 26 mpg.

Favorite Features

Quick and fun to drive. Comfortable for the kind of car it is.

Suggested Improvements

Better design of engine placement. There is no room to do any maintenance! All Fords leak.
