1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


I can't say enough good things about this car - I love it, even at 140,000 miles! We did have the dashboard problem that was fixed via recall, but this car just keeps going and going like the Energizer bunny. The 5-speed manual transmission is very smooth when shifting. The car corners very well, handles very well in snow, and gets great gas mileage (around 34 mpg). I'm extremely disappointed that Ford no longer makes this model, or anything comparable in a 5 speed manual transmission.

Best Features

Very comfortable interior, great handling.

Worst Features

First - bring back this model! Also, the dash and cupholders could use improvement. Could stand some improvement in the headlight design.
