2000 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan


I bought my 00 svt after owning a 96
tour seV6. Only problem with 96, wheel
bearings, thats why I bought a 00
SVtour. It has been a great
experience. The paint(silver) quality
is far better than expected, no chips
on front end. Otherwise, I always use
synthetic oil, doesn't burn
any.Goodrich KDW tires go quick at 23k,
I like the twisties. I will have
this car a long time. The exhaust is
exotic. The wheels are bend proof.
Emergency brake needs lubrication
yearly. Not much for aftermarket
stuff. Zero faults. Keep intake
clean, change coolant,tranny fluid,
brake fluid, p/s fluid, filters
available at Walmart and you will
have zero problems with this car.

Best Features

Power, exhaust, handling. Headlights. Looks.Reliability.

Worst Features

Rear suspension, Handling overpowers it,not up to the task if the road is slightly uneven, bumpy. Ford, put an a/c switch for the defrost, I don't need it on everytime I use the defroster,let me save fuel when I can.Give me tire choices. goodrich and kumho are not a enough.
