A lemon needing too many repairs
By Fed Up on


1995 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


WHEN it runs, it's great. V6
with 5 speed manual is responsive
and fun. The ride is nice, seats are
comfy, and it holds cruise speed in the
mountains. But it is
simply unreliable. In the past 5
months, it has broken down 5
times. Starting at 36K miles (when we
should have seen "the signs" and dumped
it), countless trips to the shop
include catalytic converter, oxygen
sensor, mass air flow sensor, wiring
harness, EGR something-or-another, etc.
The part is NEVER in stock at my Ford
dealership, adding to the
inconvenience. I inherited this car
when I married my husband. My husband
is great, but the car is a lemon.

Best Features

Peppy engine, fun five speed, moon roof.

Worst Features

Overall reliability and quality parts that aren't farmed out to some shoddy outside manufacturer. Cup holder that actually holds a cup without the passenger's seat getting in the way.
