2000 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


The SVT Contour is one of the great performance sedan bargains on the used market. European feel and handling, domestic parts prices and reliability, at a low price. Fuel economy is great, especially on the highway, and if you are at all conservative around town. Quick but not super fast by today's standards, I won't be racing anyone so it's plenty fast. I was looking for a sporty everyday driver with track day potential, seriously considered a similar vintage BMW 3 series, but the SVT is half the price.

Best Features

Exhaust sound, seats, interior appearance. Aggressive exterior appearance. Nice shifter feel and steering.

Worst Features

It would be nice to have some suspension camber adjustment for performance work. Bring over the Mondeo III in an SVT version!!
