A mechanical nightmare!

1995 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


This car is a decent car to drive,
especially for the money paid, but
it's a disaster on wheels. The engine
revs itself at idle, and I can't start
it without keeping my foot on the gas
or it stalls. The brake pedal will
only depress half-way (new pads and
rotors turned 6 mo. ago). This car
also jerks and shakes when in drive
gear below speeds of 20 MPH, causing
me to hit a car in front of me while I
was parallel parking. I like Fords,
but this car seems to be poorly
designed (ie. cupholder, lack of rear
legroom, locking gas cap won't open

Best Features

sporty handling and plenty of power for a midsize family sedan, amazingly cheap (i know why now).

Worst Features

High insurance rates, same cost to insure my 2000 Explorer 4x4 as this 95 contour, what's up with that? Quality control, the japanese and german auto makers know how, why can't the US keep up?
