1998 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I can't beleive that this car was replaced by the champions of recalls (the Focus). This car looks great, has loads of power, a very reliable engine/transmission (My first priority) AND outstanding handling. I will conceade that it is not the ideal familly vehicle as was intended by Ford due to restricted (even after improvement in 98)rear seat. A child seat is very difficult to use. But this was not a conscen for me. The Duratec is the only All aluminium, dual overhead cam north american engine. And no this is not a Mazda Engine , this is Ford's. And in a 3.o Liter( I wish) the standard engine in base Jaguar S type, Lincon LS, and Jaguar X-type.

Favorite Features

Power, handling , reliability, looks (LX V6/SE)

Suggested Improvements

Bring back to North America. Why do the Europeans get to keep it (Mondeo) and a new version to add insult to injury (the Focus)
