100,000 Miles in a Contour SE

1997 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


We have had this vehicle for five years
and like it alot. We got it with the V6
and 5 speed manual transmission, and it
has a totally different character from
what you get at a car rental agency. It
is a lot of fun to drive.

Best Features

The acceleration and handling surprise everybody who rides in it. It is also very comfortable for the front seat passengers and OK for those in the back. It has been very reliable, requiring no repairs other than maintenance items.

Worst Features

The only complaint I have is that the original tires only lasted 25k miles. Part of this is due to the factory caster and camber settings (the rest is due to Firestone...)
