Great Car For Everyday And Solo Roadtrips, Would Recommend A Well-maintained One. — Given to me by my dad for college, it was great. Still today it is the best handling car I've driven regularly. The V6 DOHC was perfect for the car, great for highway driving. Not much space, however the front seats were designed for a sports car. Wish I could find a suitable replacement.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great performance and handling for such a generic looking car.

Cons: Exterior design was very plain and "Ford" looking. Not much interior space.

Great Second Car. — Great car for the runs to the store and small trips. Dependable vehicle with minor repair being the only problems. Cramped space when working in the engine compartment. Easy to customize with your own styling. College kid friendly without a doubt!

Pros: Powerful family car

Cons: Small cockpit for driver if you are tall.

Great Value For The Money — For a 1995 v6, the car was great. split forged pistons, power everything. Excellent handling and a punchy 2.5 liter dohc engine with a 6750 rpm redline. Not much for a back seat on the inaugural year, they corrected it by the 96 model year.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: hi revving engine, same mtx transmission found in the aston martins

Cons: body styling wasn the greatest

Idk — If it wasn't for the good gas mileage that this car gets i would probably try to convince my parents to buy something else because the car isn't very powerful or easy to look at and claim it as my car, but it does do a fine job of getting me from point a to point b efficiently

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas milage

Cons: only has an inline 4 cylinder for a motor

It's A Pretty Good Family Car. Enough Space And Good On Gas Mileage. — I think the performance is pretty good for how old it is, it is up to date on all of its oil changes it has fairly new tires and is good on gas. it only costs $32 dollars to fill up the tank. So I give it a 3 star for an overall rating.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Got it for a good price

Cons: Primarily an elderly car

Great Car, Was My First And I'd Own Another One. I'd Get An Svt. — The 4 cyl engine was a neat little engine with lots of room for performance boost. But in this car it was underpowered. Build quality was off. Its appearance was lacking but with a body kit like the SVT it looked great. Cost of ownership was low. Maintnance was easy and cheap parts galore. Gas was decent. 3-400 miles on 1 tank. It was a fun sporty driving sleeper.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sleeper and cheap to drive.  SVT Was awesome.

Cons: Not built very well.

Set The Path For Fords Of The Future — This was another attempt at a "world car" by Ford and was the most successful up to that point, largely because they didn't mess with the terrific handling the European engineers gave it. Arguably Ford's best overall offering at the time, but had a cramped back seat which hurt sales. Crap automatic tranny didn't help either, sapping performance and economy. Get a manual if you can. Still, handling and overall feel rival BMW, believe it or not. Subsequent generations not sold here carried on the Ford DNA, best sampled in the first-generation Focus.

Pros: Terrific handling, solid feel, Ford's best at the time.

Cons: Lousy automatic tranny, mediocre fuel economy paired with V6. Get a manual if you can.

Review For 95 Ford Contour — The performance was great, it handled well in the snow regardless of not having traction control. The build quality was good when I had the car, but it tended to overheat which eventually led to the head gasket blowing and my having to junk the car. The exterior appearance was okay; i bought the car used so it a scratches but the interior was perfect. the ride was so comfortable too. It was relatively fun to drive.

Pros: Handled well, comfortable ride

Cons: Overheated

Fun Car. — Power was awesome. The 5 speed gearbox wasn't bad, not great, but not bad. Braking was fine. Handling was excellent. Just enough handling to be able to keep the power in check. Build quality wasnt the best. I had weather stripping falling off and the dash parts falling off sometimes, but nothing big. The appearance was ok, even though I drove it 12 years after it came out. This car was not very reliable when it came down to the last few years. We had to get it fixed a lot, and soon we just junked it cuz I ran it into the ground. Very fun to drive because of the power. I peeled out everywhere I went because the manual was so fun.

Pros: Power, handling, fun

Cons: reliability, gas mileage.
