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 Full Review

You have had exactly the same issues with the car that I have had. Water pump, intake manifold gaskets repalced twice and third gear synchros. All failed for me as well. Must be karma.

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 myself have started to drive the car over the past year and a half and have pushed it to its limits. The car rips the road apart in first gear with its 165 lb-ft of torque and… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2003 by vochofan (1 review written)

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. My car is a 2000 model and now it has 45 kilometers -I live in Mexico-. At first I wanted the SVT, but my mom couldnt afford it, so I got the one that follows. I hate automatic transmissions, so this manual v6 is the best engine and car I could buy.
I have to say that in highways its moves are incredible, it has… Read Full Review

“I bought my Ford Contour car new and had to replace...”

Written on: 28/06/2002 by Ihateford. (1 review written)

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.

Strangely, my friend is driving a Ford Focus 2001 and 3 days after she bought it, she had the car towed because of a major leak from the power stearing.

My suggestion...Stay away from Ford… Read Full Review
