1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


My wife and I have had the Contour for
3 years now and have had no major
problems. Oil changes every 3,000
miles, and a tuneup and injector
cleaning about a year ago. It has been
quite dependable, and my wife often
puts on 300 miles a week of highway

But now it's getting to the point where
it seems like things will start to go
wrong. It's losing power, dies
occasionally after starting it up first
thing in the morning, and the shifts
from the automatic transmission are not
nearly as smooth as they used to be.

Best Features

Very spacious trunk, solid interior build.

Worst Features

Long-term build quality.
