Fix Or Repair Daily
By rjs66 on
Vehicle1997 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewMy wife bought this and it is been
trouble from early on. At 7k miles, the
tranny started leaking fluid. 6-7
recalls. Poor acceleration. After
about 30-35k miles, it started idling
horribly, sounding like it would stall,
and it even did several times. At 45k
it sucked $250 in repairs, a couple
months later, $500, and a couple months
later, at 50k miles, it would have been
$1200 after it was determined that the
O2 sensors, computer and 5 other things
were faulty, but I declined to fix it
and got rid of it. I will never buy
Ford. I would only recommend buying a
used one if it is for a high schooler's
first beater car.
Worst FeaturesMake a reliable car, the cup holders were junk and broken, half of the controls on the dash panel (like the headlights) operate in a counter- intuitive fashion. I guess there is no reason to improve it since even Ford decided to abandon it.
