1998 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan


When I first purchased this car, I
should have know things wouldn't go
well based on the number of recalls!
The fuel filler neck, blower swith,
airbag sensors, and transmission gear
indicator were all in need of repair.
Too bad everything else wasn't covered
by recalls or technical service
bulletins. I've had to replace the AC
system, cooling fan (twice),
thermostat, belt tensioner, and much
more. At least it's paid for...

Best Features

Peppy, smooth four cylinder engine; good brakes; tight, responsive steering; good gas mileage.

Worst Features

There should have been an overhead light for the back seat, as well as a clock that could be read at night. Fun to drive, but reliability is nonexistant.
