1998 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan

Review

Our contour is a gl v6 sport. This car is the king of recalls and is very unreliable. Check engine light is always comming on. Transmission shifts to abruptly. Sunroof most of the time does not work. Ride is to harsh and too much engine noise. Engine is always making growling sounds especially at low speeds. Duratech does not feel as powerful as its 170 hp rating. Paint scratches easily, flimsy car. Drinks alot of gas. Really glad they dont make this troublesome model anymore, think early 80's american car. If yours runs good you probably have a 4 cylinder or hardly drive.

Best Features

Styling, v6 power with auto is much better than 4 cylinder auto.

Worst Features

Make it wider. Needs a five speed auto. Car is a good size and weight for a hybrid.
