1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


Bought it used in '99 and was
reasonably pleased for a couple years,
except for the endless list of recalls.
It's always eaten tires because it
won't stay aligned (no, it was never in
a wreck). To date I've spent $200+ to
replace the o2 sensor, $350+ to replace
a melted fuze box(heater fuze didn't
blow like it was supposed to), dipstick
replacement(yep, the dipstick broke), 2
alternators in < 18 months, and the
transmission went out this week.
Perhaps the buyer of this pile of scrap
metal I'm about to sell will do OK,
since I've already replaced most moving
parts, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Best Features

Easy to tow.

Worst Features

Just discontinuation, which Ford has already had the wisdom to implement.
