What a waste
By JayCee on
1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan
Bought the car in 2003 when I was 16 with about 60,000 miles on it. It was maintenance-free until 2007 at 100,000 miles when O2 sensors went out, followed by the transmission two weeks later. It was all downhill from there with broken belts, more O2 sensors, brakes completely failed, and now it's been in the shop once a month for the past three months. I could have purchased a very nice car after more or less buying the car again via repairs in the past year. Loud cabin noise, dome light fell out of the ceiling, trunk doesn't open with the lever anymore, headlights are incredibly dim, defroster is more or less useless, three cupholders, and one is too shallow to even use.
Shifter on the floor, front middle armrest, good on tires, easy to drive-handles okay for an older car
Exterior styling, engine quality, cabin noise is horrendous
