1996 Ford Contour LX 2.5 Duratech V6 from North America
I love it!!!
I have not had a single problem with this car.
The best car Ford ever made, I love it. I have had my Contour since November 1995, and have not had a problem. This is the best car that I have ever owned. The V-6 is smooth and powerful and the car handles great. The only complaints I have are that the backseat is ridiculously tiny, and the brakes are very touchy, especially when wet. The car still looks and feels new, the only thing that I have done is routine maintenence and regular carwashes. I will drive this car into the ground. Too bad Ford stopped production after the 2000 models.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you have had no problems with this car then you are soooooooo lucky. I bought my car for 1,900$ I've done 2493.78$in repairs in the one year I've owned it. All of the parts I used were also reconditioned parts under warranty. I have never used a dealer, but a mechanic that owns a 96 contour. Lucky for us he has had the same problems so he knows how to fix them cheap.

Yes, I have a V6 2.5 L Duratech as well in a fully loaded LX model. I have had it since 60,000 kms and now have 195,000 kms on it after many years. I have very limited troubles with the car. I think its one of the most problem free cars I have owned. I think most of the problems are with the 4 cyl model. I am having my first major repair done as I write this which is a replacement of the air take manifold gasket. But after 195,000 kms I am not complaining!
