I have read a lot of reviews about
Contours; either people love them or
hate them. Mine has been great - I
love it. No problems to complain
about. Sure the dashboard warped, whose
didn't. The shop took care of it -
problem solved. It is a great
performer, very sporty, good gas
mileage, all for a super price. I have
over 60k in 4 years and nothing out of
the ordinary has gone wrong. It is too
bad they stopped making them. The
Focus is inadequate as a replacement.
Sporty looks, great handling, good
acceleration. Cost per mile since new
is lower than I have ever experienced
in a car. Great value - I feel sorry
for those who have had trouble.
Cup holders are horrible. I have
always complained to Ford that the
transmission is a bit jerky; I think
that is just Ford. Ford service
departments could be better.
