1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Contour Sport with 2.5liter, 175 hp is a poor man's sports car. Lots of zip when getting on the freeway. Gets up to 80 mph before you know it. Hey, Ford!!! What's with all the recalls????? I lost count at 12, and for really stupid stuff. Air conditioner accumulator rusted through at 45,000 and cost me plenty to cold air flowing again. Wife's car. It's getting traded in later this week for a new Jeep Wrangler.

Favorite Features

Good looks; handles great, great acceleration from dead stop or at highway speeds.

Suggested Improvements

Needs more leg room. I'm 6"2" and it gets a little tight.
