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.
Nothing really. Itís a small car. It has all the basics; air, radio, engine etc.
The dash makes a different design so it doesnít start warping. Maybe make the backseat a little bigger make more leg room for the front and back.
