Great driving car, but...
By Chuck on


1997 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


I bought this car because I loved the way it drives, and I still do. I'm not completely happy, though, because I have never had such a series of small problems with a car. Interior parts (that darn cupholder!), window motors and relays, sensors, etc. The brake rotors are thin and have a short life expectancy. It never ends. But I have to say that I've never been stranded in this car. The drive train has been 100% reliable. Still, Ford cancelled the model (I guess it drives too well) and the small things... so this will be my last Ford.

Best Features

The way it drives (w/manual transmission and Sport package)

Worst Features

Make the little things as reliable as the drivetrain.
