1998 Ford Contour 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased my 2.0L Zetec with automatic transmission at 26,000 miles. Now at 154,000 miles, I have experienced one major problem: lesson learned - change the idler pulleys with the timing belt since the OEM bearings are failure-prone. Small oil leaks from the valve cover were resolved with a new gasket and grommet set. I have really enjoyed this car and have kept it up with an excellent preventative maintenance program. Being a mechanical engineer may have something to do with it, too.

Favorite Features

My 4-cylinder A/T model gets outstanding mileage on the highway and the trunk size has usually been adequate for most trips.

Suggested Improvements

I was told the OEM speakers are good for 30 watts per channel so I replaced the factory stereo with an aftermarket unit. The sound quality has been better than I expected.
