1995 Ford Contour LX 2.5L V6 from North America
Great car with very man problems
When first got the car it was wonderful! Had no problems at all. The first to mess up was the after market alarm. It would go off at any given time and no way to cut it off without disconnecting the battery. The next thing was unknown as of right now of what is the matter. The transmission starting jerking in and out of gear rapidly while driving, then that stopped and now it will not go into overdrive. With the jerking of the transmission and the engine it caused one of the power steering lines to bust. that cost over $200. The transmission if fine its all some sort of electrical issue. Check engine light on while driving, EGR valve sensor sup post to be bad. The wiring harness is terrible, cost for just the wires is in excess of $1200. Over all love the car, but it's a piece. The worst of all is the whole engine besides the wires has been redone.
Fast and handles great when running. One of the most comfortable riding cars besides our cadillac.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi Everyone, I also have a 95 contour that started out jerking, now it jumps out of overdrive, specially when the car has been running about 30 minutes. Almost seems like it is overheating, an the fluid is breaking down. I believe if that's so, i am replacing the radiator, plus the temp sending unit in the transmission, an the motor itself, It seems OK in the winter. If anyone can help me, please let me no, by posting a review or a comment. I believe they are a good car, but they are kinda hi maintenance, I think that just makes it that much better, because you have to continually show it no matter what your going to fix it, once again. Thanks Everyone, Jerry.
