1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

I had owned my SVT Contour (1998
coreador red) for nearly 4 years,
having bought it used in 1999. Sadly,
the car went up in flames about a week
ago. In a fire possibly related to
leaking power steering fluid, this
thing lit up like a roman candle;
fortunately no one was hurt. Anyway,
with the exception of the above noted
issue, these cars are fairly reliable,
and of course are blessed with amazing
handling.

Best Features

Smooth 5 speed, excellent steering feel, stability at high speed.

Worst Features

Major repairs: both front wheel bearings, o2 sensors, cat converter (recall), new gas tank (recall).
