1998 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


I can't beleive that this car was
replaced by the champions of recalls
(the Focus). This car looks great,
has loads of power, a very reliable
engine/transmission (My first
priority) AND outstanding handling. I
will conceade that it is not the ideal
familly vehicle as was intended by
Ford due to restricted (even after
improvement in 98)rear seat. A child
seat is very difficult to use. But
this was not a conscen for me. The
Duratec is the only All aluminium,
dual overhead cam north american
engine. And no this is not a Mazda
Engine , this is Ford's. And in a 3.o
Liter( I wish) the standard engine in
base Jaguar S type, Lincon LS, and
Jaguar X-type.

Best Features

Power, handling , reliability, looks (LX V6/SE)

Worst Features

Bring back to North America. Why do the Europeans get to keep it (Mondeo) and a new version to add insult to injury (the Focus)
