2000 Ford Contour Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

We have been very happy with our
Contour. It has only needed normal
upkeep and has had only one moderate
problem caused by my daughter and her
lack of experience in driving. It fits
everyone in our family from my husband
who is 6'2" to our daughter who is only
4'11".


Best Features

Fits a wide range of driver's heights. Moves right along in high speed interstate traffic. Decent gas mileage.


Worst Features

Radio/cassette is a pain to use or change while you are driving. The buttons are small and there is no direct simple way to tune in a station that is not on your pre-set buttons.

2000 Ford Contour Sedan SE Sport 4dr Sedan


Review

Well, I must say that I have enjoyed my
ownership if this car so far. I have
the V6 and it's perfomance is great.
Power when you need it w/ a nice
growl.The handling is awesome.It stays
glued to the road and is very
predictable.Being a car nut and I have
to say the Contour, especially in SE
Sport trim has beat all within $3-4k of
the price.I get great&unheard of fuel
economy w/ it. I average 30-32 hwy &
city combined.The worst thing that has
happened w/ this car is the fuel pump
went bad at 60k..They are WELL
underpriced compared to the Cavaliers &
Neons , Etc. out there.They don't have
half the performance and comfort the
Contour has.


Best Features

2.5 V6, braking is great,auto shifts smoothly and predictably,Handling is many times better than comparably priced cars out there,Styling, comfort, & more space than the car shows.


Worst Features

Well.. unfortunalty... only Eurpe has access to the Contour"Mondeo over there".. so we can't do much improvement now.. The Bosch +4 plugs did wonders. FORD's SERVIVE depts. need help!!

Review

This is in my experience a pretty good
car. I have not heared any complaints.
If you live on dirt road, the struts
can be costly Apr. 1000 for all 4 with
alignment Im going in for the first
time in 5 years.

Review

I've had my 99 SE Sport for 4 years
now and have enjoyed it the whole
time. I've had no major problems
(knock on wood) except for a slight
deformation in the dashboard, which I
realized too late was a recall item
that I never took advantage of. It's
a great drive.


Best Features

Power and handling (exceptional for the money).


Worst Features

Interior design and quality.

Review

I have had a good experience with this
vehicle. Besides routine maintenance,
the only problems I have had with this
car was the replacement of the fuel
pump and a recall for the dashboard
cover (warping in high heat). The fuel
pump was under warranty and the
dashboard replaced for free. I do have
a peculiar problem with my car only
when it is below freezing and the
engine is cold- the airbox makes a
funny resonant vibrating noise. My car
has currently has 62000 miles on it
and will probably give me that much
more I guess...


Best Features

The favorite features on this car are the V-6 engine, which has plenty of power and durability and the handling of the car. I drive fairly aggressively and the OE Michelin tires lasted me 40000+ miles.
