Wow. This was a good buy. I had a 1998
Contour SE before this and it's a much
different feeling. Interior looks like
higher quality materials were used.
More convenience features like
extendable visors make it nice. This is
a soft, quiet ride. Even on the
freeway. Albeit, more passing power
could be used on the freeway, at the
time I just couldn't find one with the
V6 :( Insurance costs are a bit up
there though but overall a good purchase
in my mind. Avg 25 mpg with good mix of
city & freeway.
JBL Sound system is great! Incredible
build quality, Soft and Quiet ride,
Adequete torque for a 4 cyl, Roomy under
the hood, Pleasent service experience,
and finally, FULL SIZE SPARE INCLUDED =)
More oomph in the 4 cyl (138 hp doesn't
cut it) for passing power, Tiny apeture
rendures the fold down seats almost
useless, insurance costs are more
