1999 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


I bought my Contour V6 with 56,000 miles. I bought the car for it's strong engine, good looks, and tight sport suspension. Good interior room overall, and trunk is spacious. I love the way the car handles - especially with a little upgraded rubber. Disc brakes all way around with ABS and traction do a great job keeping the car going the direction you want it, and handles very well in the snow. Wish I would have gotten a sunroof and the 5 speed manual transmission for resale. At 60,000, the trunk sprang a leak, had to have the seals replaced and some brake light wiring that was damaged because of it. Other than that, this car has been a pleasure to drive.

Best Features

Keyless entry, though I wish the lights would flash when unlocking/locking. Power drivers seat, HVAC controls are simple and easy to use. Stereo KICKS!! I love the fog lights and wrap-around appearance of the headlights. Engine is strong and really pulls about 3000 rpm for perfect passes.

Worst Features

Some cheap interior pieces - lots of gray plastic. The factory CD player skips easily and won't read burned CD's. Placement/shape of cupholders and in general the center console. No light in engine bay. No light on driver's vanity mirror. No headrests in backseat or a trunk pass-through.
