    The contour was my favorite car I owned. I had the SE sport with the 2.5 V6. SO much fun! 170 hp and 160 ft lb torque got you to 60 (in my car) about 8 seconds. Really just awesome, and super reliable. 315,000 miles when I had finally sold it for my Smart
    Back Seats Ranked 1999 Nissan Altima worse.
    "More room, more cushion."
    Family Car Ranked 1999 Nissan Altima worse.
    "The contours room, and quick get up and go with v6"

    Good, Depends On Who You Buy It From. — I bought it from a lady. I didn't get title. I got the car to work. It did good. There were minor problems, I blame more on the previous owner not taking care of it. Generally it was a good car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks great. The car drove good after I bought it and I fixed it.

    Cons: It died on me a week later. Again I blame previous owner.

    Worst Car I've Ever Had — This is the worst car I've ever had . For a 2.5l v6 the engine sucks . The dash peels back cause ford sucks and pretty much the rest of the car is freaking terrible . I can't wait till I get a new car so I can personally push this POS off a bridge...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Not too many of these........

    Cons: Don't really know where to begin with the negatives ..... Basically this car sucks don't get one... PERIOD !!!!!

    Best 900 Bucks I Ever Spent — Performance: Lots of power for a economy 4 door because of the 2.5 v6 Plus it has a 5 speed so you have the fun factor. Build quality: I got it as a reconstructed car and there is very little damage but it set off the airbags which broke the windshield which is a dumb design flaw. Appearance: Looks pretty sporty for a 4 door sedan, stock wing. Cost of ownership: Cheap so far but i have some basic maintenance things to do to it soon. Fun Factor: Sporty little sedan with plenty of power for a little bit of fun

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cheap, reliable, fun to drive

    Cons: Transmissions are known to be weak, low resale value unless you have the SVT

    Idk — My car is ok, its not the greatest but it is ok. It has some get up and go, and is great on gas. It has some speed so it is nice to drive for far distances. Overall a decent car.

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

    Pros: get up and go, and nice to drive on the highway

    Cons: has dents and scratches

    Great First Car, Fun To Drive Spiritedly Yet Still Has Good Gas Mileage — Performance- good acceleration, braking, and handling Build Quality- Alternators don't last long and are hard to replace, Coil springs prone to breakage Appearance- nice styling with smooth body lines Cost of ownership- gas mileage is good, alternators don't last long Fun factor- Very easy to drive and fun to drive. The V6 has plenty of power and the gears in the 5 speed manual are just right for fun spirited driving

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: easy to drive, handles well, gets good gas mileage

    Cons: sometimes difficult to work on, too easy to spin the tires, performance upgrades are hard to come by, alternators are a PITA to change

    I Love It, Easy To Work On, And Its Got 150k Miles And Runs Like A Champ — I love this car, its always been faithful and it is pretty spunky and i can hit 100 mph no problem. As for acceleration, its not bad at all. Its very fun to drive and i am quite glad mine is a manual.

    Love The Car And Suggest It To Everybody, Great First Car — I LOVED my Contour, it was the most comfortable car I have ever driven and it fit all of my friends comfortably. Being 6'6" finding a car that I have legroom in is hard to come by. It was able to haul a** when needed also.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable, roomy, gas mileage

    Good To Save Gas Money... — Good little run around car, not somthing to brag about though... Sheetmetal is very easily dented, car runs rough with the ac on. The five speed is a must, the car is powerless up hills. good cheap ride, fairly cheap to fix.

    Pros: fuel economy

    Cons: cheaply built
