Overall I love the car, Ford had an excellent design here, but their quality control in manufacturing needed significant improvement. The quality control issues killed the car. (read more)

Well, in the summer of 1998 my father bought the new Ford Contour 2.5L V6 SE (manual transmission). We have brought it in to the garage to get it serviced for all recommended mileages. The engine has never failed us. We have had to replace the breaks, the rear struts, suspension and that's it (no clutch replacement).

I am 18 and my mom bought me this spectacular car: a Ford Contour v6 manual. I love it, the sound of the engine, its power and the way I can beat Accords and many more in street races.

I bought my Ford Contour car new and had to replace the transmission at 43K miles.
I never raced the car I and always did preventive maintenance as recommended by the manufacturer.
I called Ford and they laugh at me.

My suggestion...Stay away from Ford. (read more)
