1999 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

This is a car that could have been great but for nagging NVH problems. Pros: Wonderful 2.5L DOHC V6 mated to a manual 5spd. Never stops pleasing! Had veh up to 115mph grinning all the way. Exterior styling is awesome. Chassis dynamics are very stable, very predictable. Cons: From day 1, nagging squeaks & rattles from the dashboard drive me crazy. The dashboard was a design blunder of the worst kind because otherwise, this would have been a great car. Road isolation is not great, particularly when sitting in rear seat.

Favorite Features

Powertrain and exterior styling. Nicely proportioned car from front to rear with adequate interior room & trunk space.

Suggested Improvements

Fire the engineers that came up with the dashboard. Ford learned it's lesson on Contour and came up with the interior excellence of the Focus.
