1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

Review

This is one of the most popular cars in Europe, where gas is $4 a gallon, where you can drive at 100 mph, where sports cars were born. In America we like fat, floaty, bloated behemoths, giant pick- ups that never haul anything. Come on, all you people who have problems and then complain loudly about it have no conception of maintenance. Your 88 Chevy pick-up never needs its oil changed, except for maybe every 50,ooo miles or so huh ? That 350 just runs and runs doesn't it? Yea, at 7 mpg, and you don't have to change the oil cause it leaks, and the quart you add every week is basically self changing. The Contour was a great car, but we just didn't get it.

Favorite Features

style, economy, handling, trunk space, ease of maintenance, performance

Suggested Improvements

Seats need more side bolstering and long bottom cushions for thigh support.
