1994 Ford Contour LX 2.5 V6 from Costa Rica


Better buy a Japanese car


Replaced the brake caliper after I bought it.

Power steering pump replaced at 165000 Km.

Timing chain gone at 180000 Km.

General Comments:

This car is very comfortable and runs fast (when it runs!).

I had many problems with this car, spent a lot of money on parts, and in the end the entire engine had to be replaced. I believe I just had bad luck with this car because it had not good care from the previous owner. Still, I loved the car while it worked, but I would think it twice before buying another one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1994 Ford Contour GL 2.0L from North America


It is piece of trash


Once it broke down I could not find spare parts for it. I agree with all of you that this is crappy car. I bought it for $400 drove it for 1.5years then engine started overheating some sensors failed and on and it goes, and then towed it away to local junk yard and got $200 for it

(At least I passed checkride for drivers license on it)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I would be happy if I had a car that cost only $133.33 per year!

I wrote the above review and I now think I wrote it too soon, oooops, back then I didn't understood much about cars, and as of right now I probably could have fixed it and still drive it.

So do you or anyone know how to find discontinued parts for this 1994 Contour? I am stuck looking for a speed sensor and speedometer cable. I have spent days looking.

There were very few '94 Contours built. So I suggest looking for the '95 Contour parts. Don't forget the junk yards are a great source for the parts you are looking for.
