1996 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


I think that if Ford stuck with this
car for as long as Japanese Co. usaully
do, then they would have a winner. It
takes time to work out gremlins. If the
driver follows the owner manual
checkups and replaces the timing belt
at 60,000, then you may get a good car
for the money. Before you buy: check
heater switch, battery life, AC life,
headlight connectors.

Best Features

Split rear seat, 5 speed transmission, cab foward design, gas mileage, and cost of ownership!

Worst Features

Buy the 6 cyl, 1997 or newer, 15" wheels, tilt wheel.
