1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


Ford's SVT group did a great job with this car. I've owned this car for nearly 10 years and would easily do it all over again. Sure, I've done a few light mods but it is still my daily driver as well as track car (same tires - Potenza S-03 Pole Position). And in winter, fitted with snow tires (since I have summer high performance tires), beats out 95% of SUVs.

Best Features

Great gas mileage, fun to drive, balanced on the track, comfortable (but not large back seat).

Worst Features

Typical domestic manufacturer shortcuts - cheap plastic dash, trunk lid strut won't keep the trunk up and causes the lid to slam, bumpers are too heavy for supports so sag a little bit.
