2000 Ford Contour SE Sport 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is one of the few I've owned that I considered worth holding on to as a second car. By far the best value on the market for a V6 with manual, it gets > 30 mpg overall. It's still a pleasure to drive and has had no major problems - except, strangely enough, it needed a new fuel pump at 60K miles - same as reported by several other users. The after-market moonroof and optional CD/AM/FM system were worth getting.


Best Features

Road handling & agility are exceptional for a car that cost only $14.5K when new. Comfortable ride, good fuel economy are also appreciated.


Worst Features

Insufficient rear seat legroom for tall persons. The new European Mondeo models are great - pity we can't get them here. Poor quality sound system - but hey, it's not a "luxury" car.

Review

Well, I must say that I have enjoyed my
ownership if this car so far. I have
the V6 and it's perfomance is great.
Power when you need it w/ a nice
growl.The handling is awesome.It stays
glued to the road and is very
predictable.Being a car nut and I have
to say the Contour, especially in SE
Sport trim has beat all within $3-4k of
the price.I get great&unheard of fuel
economy w/ it. I average 30-32 hwy &
city combined.The worst thing that has
happened w/ this car is the fuel pump
went bad at 60k..They are WELL
underpriced compared to the Cavaliers &
Neons , Etc. out there.They don't have
half the performance and comfort the
Contour has.


Best Features

2.5 V6, braking is great,auto shifts smoothly and predictably,Handling is many times better than comparably priced cars out there,Styling, comfort, & more space than the car shows.


Worst Features

Well.. unfortunalty... only Eurpe has access to the Contour"Mondeo over there".. so we can't do much improvement now.. The Bosch +4 plugs did wonders. FORD's SERVIVE depts. need help!!

Review

This is in my experience a pretty good
car. I have not heared any complaints.
If you live on dirt road, the struts
can be costly Apr. 1000 for all 4 with
alignment Im going in for the first
time in 5 years.

Review

I've had my 99 SE Sport for 4 years
now and have enjoyed it the whole
time. I've had no major problems
(knock on wood) except for a slight
deformation in the dashboard, which I
realized too late was a recall item
that I never took advantage of. It's
a great drive.


Best Features

Power and handling (exceptional for the money).


Worst Features

Interior design and quality.
