1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


Acceleration is great. Engine seems to be reliable, but who knows. The biggest problem I have had with this car is replacing the radiator. With it inside the front support, I had to contract with a local shop to get do it myself. Also, fuel filter bracket is terrible. After only one Wisconsin Winter, it was rusted to pieces. Suspension is nicely tuned, but my Kia out drives it. Even the 2.5L V6 doesn't hold a candle to my 1.8L 4- popper.

Best Features

The suspension. It handles well.

Worst Features

A leaner fuel system would be better. It may rob the performances just some, but I would get more than 250mi out of a tank of gas.
