I will have a hard time parting with this Contour!
By incaleif on
1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan
I took on this contour when it had 196,000 miles.
The seller fixed an exhaust problem.
I replaced the upper outer ball joints, had the brakes redone with new fluid, did rear struts, changed the front wheel bearings, changed the transmission fluid, P/S fluid, drained and flushed the radiator, changed the valve cover gasket and I do oil changes every 3000 miles.
I get 30 mpg.
Just now I may be looking at changing the water pump and timing belt.
But this car is worth it!
It has 230,000 miles and still running strong.
