1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


Rare car that people still ask me about. Enthusiasts "in the know" are aware of what this car is and what "SVT" means. Still handles like a dream and the growl of the V6 still brings a smile to my face. Remarkably, it has held up better than I thought it would. I have had minimal mechanical problems with the car. The trunk leaks and the headlights have begun to leak, as well. I replaced the water pump as a preventative measure, but everything else has held up very well. Paint still looks good and leather has held up very well. Small back seat and small buttons on radio are interior negatives, but give me half an hour with this car on some twisties, and nothing else matters.

Best Features

Sweet engine. Exceptional handling. Rarity. Mine has been remarkably reliable.

Worst Features

Small rear seat. Better radio. Fuel economy is so-so.
