I bought my 1998 Contour used, have had the car about 5 months, Very nice little car eventhough it is 10 years old it is still tight, holds the road well. Replaced the 02 sensor because it would stall, also the fuel pump, extensive brake repair but then again I don't believe that the brakes were ever repaired. Nice car, worth keeping to me.
Gas mileage. Handles well on the road..
02 sensor, this seems to be a common problem with this type of car.
