1997 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


Although this is a small, economical
car, I find it to be more than I
bargained for. It handles well, taking
corners well. It is extremely
dependable. With 120,000 miles, I have
never had a minutes trouble, even on
cold mornings. Never had to replace
any shocks. I have been extremely
satisfied with my Contour. I only wish
I could buy a 2003 model.

Best Features

With having children, one of my favorite features is the interior. It doesn't show dirt. In five years, it still looks great. For it to be a small sedan, I find it rather roomy, front seat and back. Also, the back seat is unusually comfortable for a small car.

Worst Features

If I had to change anything, it would be to jazz up the front grill to something a little shineier. Also, I would like to find floor mats that actually fit. Believe it or not, I have never been able to find any large enough that will fit the floor.
