1. Front and rear O2 (Oxygen Sensor) died at 92,000 miles. Cost of replacement and installation was $150.

I enjoy driving my Contour because of its overall performance and appearance within its class; the European characteristics are noteworthy.
I replaced my stock intake equipment with a Cold Air Intake System which included a 75mm ProFlow MAF Adaptor, Cold Air Pipe, and a 6 inch long and 3.5 inch wide diameter S&B Cone Air Filter.
Replace spark plugs and ignition wires with BOSCH +4.
Replace battery with Duralast.
I added a custom Exhaust with Y-Pipe that was provided by BAT Inc.
Window Tints at 20%.
