This has been a fairly good car. No
engine or major problems at all. I think
that the gas mileage could be alot
better for a four cylinder. The only
horrible problem I've had is a bad
dasboard. I had my dash replaced by the
dealer because it warped in the sun
peeling back from the defrost vents. The
new one did the same thing. The dealer
will replace it for about $1200.00
dollars! They're stupid. They replaced
my defective one with another defective one.
Other than that, it's been a fairly
decent car. Personally, I would not buy
another contour, or another Ford. I
didn't like the way they handled my dash
problem. Very cold, not willing to help
solve the problem.
Definately improve on the front dash. It
cannot stand up to the heat. Put a
lumbar feature on the driver's seat to
reduce the strain on the back and a
slight lift on the seat so the legs just
don't hang and tire easily.
