Doors Fall Off and Dash Peels
By Claire on


1999 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


I bought this as a program car. The door hinges have a clip on top. When the clip corrodes, the door falls off. It happened to me, you can't buy a clip or clip and hinge pin. The dash plastic is peeling up. I am a slow and cautious driver and the transmission had to be rebuilt before 60k miles. The trunk leaked from the beginning and the doors alway freeze shut in bad weather. Sealed beam headlights won't stay sealed. I would not buy another one.

Best Features

The seats are comfortable and clean easily. I am short and can see well. I have been bumped in rear bumper and front bumper with no visible damage.

Worst Features

Put the hinge pins from the top and be concerned about water-tightness. Toyota wouldn't put hinge pins in at the bottom.
