1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


I bought this 1998 SVT Contuor in 2003
after always wanting one. This car does
not dissapoint. It is certainly a
drivers car. Not the fastest at drags,
but it will outdo most anything when it
comes to finesse and balance. I am
impressed there are no rattles or
shakes at 60K miles. Surprisingly
solid. I would recommend buying one
used over many of the new sports sedans
of today.

Best Features

The transmission is great and I love the sound of the exhaust. The engine is small and gets great mileage as long as you dont get on it. I like the plain looks that keep me undercover. Its nice to have 4-doors too.

Worst Features

A little more power would be nice and a six speed would have been awsome. I find myself looking for another gear on the freeway. Better stereo setup of course, but nothing an aftermarket cant fix. I don't understand the dark blue interior color, but most thinks its black.
