    77k Miles And Still Solid. — Bought this car for 10k some years ago, with 47k miles. It goes 0-60 a lot faster than my subaru, has quick braking and turns on a dime. Great mileage for an old car...I'ce worked it to 79k miles and all i had to do was replace the starter. It's a comfortable, quiet car...it's great for the city or highway. Great daily driver.

    Pros: basically everything

    Cons: hard to find parts for

    Good First Car. — The exterior is good, but some interior parts are starting to break and the dash is coming apart under the front windshield.

    Pros: Good performance

    Cons: Cheap interior parts

    I Will Never Buy Another Ford, Especially A Contour — The Ford Contour I bought runs good and is comfortable to drive, but the parts on it are extremely cheaply made and break very easily, especially the handles to roll up the windows. All 4 of them broke and I can only get them at the dealer, for $16.00 each. That's insane! On top of that, the majority of the parts that break are only available from the dealer at HUGE prices. The dipstick broke because it is made of cheap plastic, and it broke off right at the dipstick tube, so I almost didn't get it out. The dashboard curled up due to heat from the sun and can't be fixed, only replaced (by the dealer of course). The car has been a constant annoyance and I can't wait to trade it in on a non-Ford auto as soon as possible. I HATE this car and now I know why everybody rags on Fords. They are very cheaply built and you can't get replacement parts anywhere except the dealer.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Miles Driven per Year:1,000

    Pros: It looks good....but that's as good as it's going to get.

    Cons: Cheap parts break easily and can only be replaced by the dealer at high prices.
