1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Overall, I love this car! It gets great gas mileage (average about 26, though I have easily managed to get 30+). It's fairly attractive and pretty quick with available 2.5L 6-cyl. The only real problem I had was my air idle control went out at about 115k miles (Symptoms: Real low RPM idle that causes the car to shut off right after starting, but you can drive it if you hold in the gas constantly.) That was a pain, but after it was fixed it ran great again. The interior has some annoying features like no lumbar support, a real shallow passenger cup holder that renders it practically useless, and a lack of little helpful storage compartments. Controls are pretty smooth.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, cruise control on steering wheel, other controls, lots of pep!

Suggested Improvements

Plastic body panels seem brittle, interior could use a lot of small improvements, mentioned earlier.
