1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


I have a 98 SE with the 2.5L six and
the sport package. I love driving the
car because of its steering response
and handling, and I'm pretty satisfied
with its power (everyone wants a faster
0-60 time, right?).

Despite all of this, I can't forget
that the tranny burned up at 30k miles.
It didn't help matters that the
dealer's service department
misdiagnosed the problem as something
else the first time I took it to them.

I like my Contour, but I'm not sure
I'll ever buy another Ford.

Best Features

steering, handling, acceleration, enough room to haul my small family around in, great price

Worst Features

other than the transmission, I could do with a bit more legroom and cupholders that are not cupholders in name only
