1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


We purchased this car with 98,000 miles on the odometer from a reliable individual we'd dealt with before. Here's a short list of what's gone wrong with the car: 1st year: The fuse block had a meltdown and had to be replaced ($500). 3rd year: At appx. 120,000 miles the transmission failed ($1,000). 4th year: Battery coupling ($100) There's other numerous repairs that have added up to over $5,000.These are not normal 'wear and tear' items, just poor design. The worst thing is that we paid $4800 for the car and after all the repairs we could've actually bought a good car.
