1998 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


Our contour is a gl v6 sport. This car
is the king of recalls and is very
unreliable. Check engine light is
always comming on. Transmission shifts
to abruptly. Sunroof most of the time
does not work. Ride is to harsh and
too much engine noise. Engine is
always making growling sounds
especially at low speeds. Duratech
does not feel as powerful as its 170 hp
rating. Paint scratches easily, flimsy
car. Drinks alot of gas. Really glad
they dont make this troublesome model
anymore, think early 80's american
car. If yours runs good you probably
have a 4 cylinder or hardly drive.

Best Features

Styling, v6 power with auto is much better than 4 cylinder auto.

Worst Features

Make it wider. Needs a five speed auto. Car is a good size and weight for a hybrid.
