1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


Purchased used. It was a one-owner car with 37,000 miles on it when I bought it. I had to get the sunroof repaired. The water pump went bad around 75,000 miles. Easy to replace, it only cost me $65.00 and two hours of my time. I had an O2 sensor go bad around 60,000 miles. Again around $80 and a hour to repair. I have had no other problems with the vehicle

Best Features

Engine performance. Solid feel and handling. Good fuel economy for a performance car 25 MPG city and 33 hwy. Piercing high beams that light up the road.

Worst Features

Better sound system. A higher 5th gear to allow lower engine RPM.
