1998 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


After having this car for only about
3000 miles (41000 when purchased) the
cv joints went. Then it was recalled
for not having the shock covers on the
front. Then the air blowers went, all
the air came out the defroster!! 5000
more miles, the serpintine belt went
along with the spark plugs. Now my car
always says its 'cold'. Broken Sensor.
The air always smells like anti-freeze
when i drive!! When i put the a/c on,
i lose about 30 hp!!! The car is slow,
unreliable, uncomfortable, and too much
to maintain!!!

Best Features

Large trunk for my Solo-Barricks<< sunroof.Luckily it looks decent because i put out 3000 more dollars for the SVT ground package and tinted all the windows. I also put an engine managment system with dual exhaust on.

Worst Features

Fix the leak in my trunk. Bigger brakes. More comfort. Just make a better car!!!
