1997 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


I bought this car brand new and I had
numerous problem issues with it. The
interior cheap plastic broke on
numerous occassions, Passenger
shoulder harness housing, cuptray, etc.
Driver's window motor broke twice in 4
yrs. time. Transmission went out at
52k miles. I am an aircraft mechanic
and I maintained this car twice as
better as the recommended maintenance
intervals. I purchased a 2002 Toyota
Corolla brand new it has 62000 miles
now and still has not given me any
problems. I am convinced that if you
want a dependable transportation car
you need to buy a Japanese one. I will
never buy american junk again.

Worst Features

Ford needs to go to Japan and learn how to build cars.
