1999 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan


I have read a lot of reviews about
Contours; either people love them or
hate them. Mine has been great - I
love it. No problems to complain
about. Sure the dashboard warped, whose
didn't. The shop took care of it -
problem solved. It is a great
performer, very sporty, good gas
mileage, all for a super price. I have
over 60k in 4 years and nothing out of
the ordinary has gone wrong. It is too
bad they stopped making them. The
Focus is inadequate as a replacement.

Best Features

Sporty looks, great handling, good acceleration. Cost per mile since new is lower than I have ever experienced in a car. Great value - I feel sorry for those who have had trouble.

Worst Features

Cup holders are horrible. I have always complained to Ford that the transmission is a bit jerky; I think that is just Ford. Ford service departments could be better.
