1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


The price is great for a used one; make sure you replace your water pump right away, the car is great except for that maintenance issue. Very very fast, sounds sweet and seats have thick leather and feel grippy. Fantastic mileage on such a fast car. Everyone talks about this car when you take it somewhere, it looks awesome. Does have some squeaks at 76k miles, handling is very good and dependant on quality of tires. Upgrade or use factory parts with maintenance and not discount parts and you will not experience issues like others in these reviews. Also who cares about cupholders, if this is a big issue for you buy a minivan not an SVT.This is a 4 door mustang GT. Well executed car by SVT.

Best Features

Leather interior, engine performance, body panels and looks and dual exhaust

Worst Features

Stronger transmission, more power in engine (it has plenty but I want even more), Continue to make this fine car.
