1996 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


My Contour hit 200,000 miles last night! I've got the V6 5-speed. Though I had problems with it early on--water pumps, numerous recalls and that darn engine light that won't go off--it's been great for the last 120,000 miles. I love the way it handles and it still has plenty of power. I'm curious to see how long it will last!

Best Features

My favorite feature is its stability. I don't have to slow down when taking bends in the road. It's almost as much fun as my motorcycle.

Worst Features

Getting in and out of the back seat is wicked, but I don't have many passengers.
