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

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.
