A good second car

2000 Ford Contour SE Sport 4dr Sedan


This car is one of the few I've owned that I considered worth holding on to as a second car. By far the best value on the market for a V6 with manual, it gets > 30 mpg overall. It's still a pleasure to drive and has had no major problems - except, strangely enough, it needed a new fuel pump at 60K miles - same as reported by several other users. The after-market moonroof and optional CD/AM/FM system were worth getting.

Best Features

Road handling & agility are exceptional for a car that cost only $14.5K when new. Comfortable ride, good fuel economy are also appreciated.

Worst Features

Insufficient rear seat legroom for tall persons. The new European Mondeo models are great - pity we can't get them here. Poor quality sound system - but hey, it's not a "luxury" car.
