1995 Ford Contour LX 2.5L from North America
Has been a very good reliable car for the way it has been driven
Water pump went at about 120,000 miles, but I don't know of any car where the water pump will last forever.
Wiring harness has the known problem. Was taken to the dealer where it was bought from, when we received the recall, and they said it was fine. Didn't notice myself, because we had an extended warranty and $12.95 oil change for as long as we owned the car; they cancelled that too. When I noticed the harness, the car had 109,000 and they wouldn't do anything about it.
Only normal maintenance besides that.
This has been a very good car, considering the way it has been driven. Beat the hell out of it.
For a V6, this car has lots of power still with 173,000 miles. Only more satisfied with our Lincoln LS V8 Sport.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
