1996 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


Well,I've owned this contour v6 for
over a year and so far haven't had any
major repairs ,just some negligible
minor flaws,trunk release cable
snapped,thus solely use keyless entry
to operate,oil pan gasket shows minor
leaks and power steering fluid line
also minorly leaks.Aside from above
it's fun to drive and
reliable .Conclusion
pros:well executed interior design and
materials other than plastic on
dashboard,brake and steering
feels,light clutch,close gear
ratio,acceleration at highway speed,4
discs,roadholding personality
cons:too stiff ride,fit and
finish,rattles and sqeaks,torque
steer,road noise,low end grunt,rear

Best Features

For this price range is handsdown bang for the bucks,nicely comfy leather bucket seats,lit vanity mirrors,4 discs,wide v6 powerband,laudable premium sound system,remote keyless entry,moonroof,power driver seat

Worst Features

this set of shocks and springs belong to bike!!,shake me like hell on uneven pavement,could reduce torque steer and number of plastic bits on dashboard,that's all my complaints!!
