1999 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan


This is a very poor choice for a car. It is not fun to drive in the least, the automatic tranny is very unresponsive and unprecise, and the engine has a terrible drone to it. I average anywhere between 18 and 30 mpg. This car only has 38xxx miles on it, never abused, and always properly maintained at the Ford dealership. The interior is actually falling apart, numerous plastic pieces have fallen off including the entire dashboard peeling up.

Best Features

I really don't like anything about this car. The brakes are decent, and the seats are OK for short distance drives.

Worst Features

This car needs a 10-fold improvement in interior quality. A decent automatic transmission would also do wonders for the driveability (i.e. something similar to an import AT).
