1995 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


Owned vehicle 3 months. The service
interval was up did the maint. The
trans filter is a JOKE.The speedo cable
was snapped. On vacation, the
timing "system" broke. Yes everything
had to be replaced. Dealer noted this
to be a common problem. The car was
great for a month. Now it runs when it
wants. It will run great, turn it off
lucky if it will restart. Other hand,
run like garbage and die when you pull
out from a lite crank 20X it starts.
(If it does)I don't trust my family in
it any more. The dealer says "It seems
perfectly fine to me, drove great" As
we leave the lot, we almost get killed
the great car died. $1400 parts
replaced with no improvement. It's got
to go.

Best Features

When we got it, it was great. Good performance, good ride, good running. But like so many others, Not any More.

Worst Features

Trans redesign. Parts that have "Quality" built in. Better internal diagnostics.
