1996 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


I bought this car several months ago
and have enjoyed it immensely. It has
had no serious problems, just regular
maintenance. It is a joy to drive and
I get a lot of comments on how nice it
looks. The 5-speed takes a little
getting used to, but makes the ride
much more enjoyable than an auto.
Overall I would give this car 5 stars
for a cheap, fun, good looking ride.

Best Features

I like the stereo and how it was made to be replaced easily without leaving a gapping hole. I also like the 4-wheel disc brakes (although expensive they stop well). It handles very well and the V6 winds up to give it plenty of power for a little car.

Worst Features

The stick shift is a little far away for my arm to reach in 5th and there isn't really a comfortable armrest for the driver. The cupholder doesn't work too well and the passenger seat is a tight fit for some people.
