1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


I have 211,000 on my 1998 Contour SE (V6, Manual Tranny). The only issue has been the alternator (pain to replace). Other than that - this car has been phenomenal. Still flies along like a champ - uses no oil - A/C still works great. Bought this car new and love it. 28 mpg average. It has never left me stranded (I was able to limp home with a bad alternator and a bad water pump). Water pump is the easiest one in the world to replace. Still riding on the original brake rotors. I will miss this car.

Best Features

Driveability. The car moves well and the tranny shifts smoothly. Can't believe how trouble free this car has been.

Worst Features

None since this car is no longer made. It was used as the basis of the Jaguar X-type.
