Almost Great But.....
By Dave Madrid on
Vehicle1999 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis is a car that could have been
great but for nagging NVH problems.
Pros: Wonderful 2.5L DOHC V6 mated to
a manual 5spd. Never stops pleasing!
Had veh up to 115mph grinning all the
way. Exterior styling is awesome.
Chassis dynamics are very stable, very
predictable. Cons: From day 1,
nagging squeaks & rattles from the
dashboard drive me crazy. The
dashboard was a design blunder of the
worst kind because otherwise, this
would have been a great car. Road
isolation is not great, particularly
when sitting in rear seat.
Best FeaturesPowertrain and exterior styling. Nicely proportioned car from front to rear with adequate interior room & trunk space.
Worst FeaturesFire the engineers that came up with the dashboard. Ford learned it's lesson on Contour and came up with the interior excellence of the Focus.
