Cheap Thrills - Maintenance Required
By Jack Jones on
Vehicle1995 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewOwned one for 9 years. Duractec V6 is
responsive and pulls hard all the way
to redline (6700rpm). Amazingly good
cornering and handling. ABS brakes
excellent. Sold after 135K miles.
Auto Tranny never an issue - changed
fluid every 35K as they suggest.
Best FeaturesSound of Duratec at 6500 rpm! Great Handling. Awesome stopping power (205/65/R14 tires). Comfortable and Sporty.
Worst FeaturesProblematic at gas pump (often prematurely cuts off pump), even simple maintenance is challenging. Duratec V6 is incredibly tight fit - dont know how they got it in there.
