Americans don't get it
By Kennard on


1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


This is one of the most popular cars in
Europe, where gas is $4 a gallon, where
you can drive at 100 mph, where sports
cars were born. In America we like fat,
floaty, bloated behemoths, giant pick-
ups that never haul anything. Come
on, all you people who have problems
and then complain loudly about it have
no conception of maintenance. Your 88
Chevy pick-up never needs its oil
changed, except for maybe every 50,ooo
miles or so huh ? That 350 just runs
and runs doesn't it? Yea, at 7 mpg, and
you don't have to change the oil cause
it leaks, and the quart you add every
week is basically self changing. The
Contour was a great car, but we just
didn't get it.

Best Features

style, economy, handling, trunk space, ease of maintenance, performance

Worst Features

Seats need more side bolstering and long bottom cushions for thigh support.
