Zippy car by A MSN Autos Consumer on 11/20/2002. Trim: 1999 Ford Contour LX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: (No data provided)
Cons: (No data provided)
Overall review: I like this car alot, it has good get up and go. I enjoy the standard transmission, It doesn't have quite enough power for me but if I had bought the svt that would not be an issue. I wish I had. But still a very nice car. No frills, just a reliable car.

A Great Car by MW from West Virginia on 03/12/2008. Trim: 1999 Ford Contour SE, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Styling is very modern, interior is easy to use and the car is relaxing on a long trip.
Cons: Fuel economy is not quite what I expected. Other than that, no other complaints.
Overall review: Great car if your looking for something not too big and not too small.

Best car I have ever owned. by Steve - Georgia on 07/14/2003. Trim: 1999 Ford Contour LX, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I like the smooth ride, reliability of the working parts. On a long trip it is a dream to drive. Even after 60,000 It still looks like new.
Cons: They could have put a bigger motor for the weight. Pick up is a little slow on the highway.
Overall review: Excellent. Wish they would come back

I got rid of my Contour by Donna from Pennsylvania on 07/08/2002. Trim: 1999 Ford Contour SE, Owned 3 years.
Pros: It's a sharp looking car. The pick-up and handling are amazing.
Cons: Where do I start...there were so many little annoying things that happened with this car. I had THREE dashboards put in the car because of this incessant squeak. I had a couple of recall items repaired, the brakes were replaced during the first 2,000 miles. There were two fatal car accidents in my area within two weeks of each other involving Ford Contours. I did some research on Contour safety and found that it isn't a safe car. I have a year-old daughter to think about...I bought the car before she was born because I thought it was cute. Not exactly the best way to pick a car, huh?
Overall review: The pick-up and handling are great in this car. I loved to take it out on country roads and just have fun. I do miss that with my new car. It's a bigger car and just doesn't have the handling the Contour has.
