1998 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan

Review

When I first purchased this car, I should have know things wouldn't go well based on the number of recalls! The fuel filler neck, blower swith, airbag sensors, and transmission gear indicator were all in need of repair. Too bad everything else wasn't covered by recalls or technical service bulletins. I've had to replace the AC system, cooling fan (twice), thermostat, belt tensioner, and much more. At least it's paid for...

Best Features

Peppy, smooth four cylinder engine; good brakes; tight, responsive steering; good gas mileage.

Worst Features

There should have been an overhead light for the back seat, as well as a clock that could be read at night. Fun to drive, but reliability is nonexistant.
