1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


I love the sound this car's engine makes during hard acceleration! Just spent $600 on a new water pump (an inherent Ford weakness) and an oxygen sensor, but most of that was labor because every thing's shoehorned inside the car. Bought it with 64,000 miles in perfect condition, but I've skinned it up, mostly on steep driveways.

Best Features

Easy, logical controls.Tasteful badges. Stealth factor.

Worst Features

Fuel mileage could be better. Even with new O2 sensor, nowhere near 20 mpg town or 29 on the highway, for that matter.
