1996 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


This car fails to meet normal wear and tear, it starts at about 5 years old. First the engine check light come on and no can fix, except for 250 dollars, then they can turn it off. Next, continual problems with the wheel, axles, bearing, alternator assembly; replaced alternator, water heater, timing chain, and last but not least the transmission is shot -- every time I turned something was wrong with this vehicle. What a piece of junk, I will never buy anything again that says Ford or Mazda since my car has a Mazda transmission in it. Need to have over head light in the middle of the car you can't see in the back seat when it's dark.

Best Features

Ease of driving, cruise control, 4 doors.

Worst Features

First the engine check light , wheel, axles, bearing, alternator assembly, replace alternator, water heater, timing chain, bearings, u-joints and transmission. JUNK IT- This car STINKS, make back doors easier to get thing in and out, square them off not round.
