1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this new and am going on mile 116,000 now. Ford was bad about responding to complaints with the dash warping, which makes me not want to buy another Ford. But this car has been very dependable. I do regular maintenance, and it still runs like a charm!

FIRST FORD

Review

We bought our '99 Ford Contour over a year ago with 75,000 miles on it. The only thing we had to do was regular maintenance, oil change, brakes, etc. The interior was good but the dash started warping after the first month we had it. But we do live in Las Vegas were it get from any where from 160 degrees inside a car when it's sitting there parked. It never broke down on us, and we never had any problems really. I would say this is a good car for a student, a high school kid maybe. But for a family itís really small. But itís very dependable as long as you keep up your owner duties.

Stranded, Again

Please avoid this car at all costs! I have been stranded six times with this thing. I've replaced almost every part, several times. This car has no pick up and go. Interior parts are falling off of it. This is my third Ford, and will be my last. Unless you enjoy time on the side of a highway, run screaming!

I Love This Car

Review

I can't say enough good things about this car - I love it, even at 140,000 miles! We did have the dashboard problem that was fixed via recall, but this car just keeps going and going like the Energizer bunny. The 5-speed manual transmission is very smooth when shifting. The car corners very well, handles very well in snow, and gets great gas mileage (around 34 mpg). I'm extremely disappointed that Ford no longer makes this model, or anything comparable in a 5 speed manual transmission.

Review

This is a very poor choice for a car. It is not fun to drive in the least, the automatic tranny is very unresponsive and unprecise, and the engine has a terrible drone to it. I average anywhere between 18 and 30 mpg. This car only has 38xxx miles on it, never abused, and always properly maintained at the Ford dealership. The interior is actually falling apart, numerous plastic pieces have fallen off including the entire dashboard peeling up.

Review

I've Bought this car new at the dealership and in 5 years (and only 90,000 miles) had to only replace tires alternator and serpatine belt. That and standard maint. it has been a really good car. I also have a 18 years old son who also drives it and he loves the fact that it is a 5 speed and shifts with ease. He tries to borrow my car for work over my wifes because mine get's better gas mileage (he does delivery work).

Ford No More

1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I have spent $2600+ in repairs in 11 months outside of the regularly scheduled maintenace visits. Problems with transmission, radiator, alternator, distributor, rotors, brakes, bearings, tie-rods and axels and stereo components. I have practically had this car rebuilt at my own expense. I thought I got a great deal on a good car. I've had Fords before so I expected to do some maintenance but this car has proven to by an astonomical financial burden. If you're looking at a Contour, please allow me to recommend a Honda.
