1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


No wonder Ford is on the verge of bankruptcy. I have never owned a car so unreliable as this in my life. My daughter got rid of it for a Corolla as she was always having it repaired. Wheel bearings every 50k miles? I only bought it as the body had no rust and have regrets. Transmission torque converter, rear struts, a/c compressor, yellowed headlight lenses, wheel bearings, etc. Back to Honda / Toyota for me.

Best Features

durable sheet metal(minimal rust for PA winters)

Worst Features

It was discontinued after four years as no one bought it - enough said!
