1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


I have owed my SVT for 4+ years.
Despite (stupidly) overpaying for the
car (sleazy, high-pressure dealer) I
have thouroughly enjoyed it. It has
enough power to press and still
looks good enough to turn heads 5
years later. Handeling is superb.
There have been a few minor
problems with the moonroof and
driver seat, but other than that the car
has been trouble free. Snow tires
are necessary in the winter.

Best Features

The engine is an excellent peice of engineering and sounds sweet...The exterior styling is sharp and it is a pleasure to drive...Starts the 1st time, every time...even at 75k

Worst Features

Blue leather & Interior?!? Roof racks do not fit well at all. Difficult to get to the oil filter w/out making a mess.
