1998 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought car used with 40K on the odometer. Good price. Drove fine for about a year. Recall city, couldn't put gas in it, recall; heater blower went out; recall. Cankshaft positioning sensor went out, transmission went, eats front tires like the Cookie Monster does chocolate chips. Service engine light on repeatedly. Loose connection with front O2 sensor. Has a funny surge problem when accelerating. Replaced water pump. Brake rotors and wheels front end very difficult to remove, They stick to the hub. I have not had any of the alternator charging system problems that others have reported. Although the garage that did the transmission said they will never do another Contour.
