1997 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


I ordered this black SE in 1996 and
have been completely impressed for the
$19,000 I paid. It has all the
features you a "semi-picky" person
would want and more. The styling and
the handling are right on target. The
price is incredibly low and a testimony
to the lack of "cache" American cars
have...even if they were developed in
Europe. I think the first review score
of 1 was a mistake by the
reviewer...thus the low over-all rating.

Best Features

engine power and growl / leather seating and over-all interior styling / sophisticated lines of sheet metal

Worst Features

build more like it / Ford should open itself back up to the under-40 yrs old market who do not care for "cheap" cars.
