1996 Ford Contour GL 2.0 liter from North America
The car from HELL!!!
Mass Air flow sensor at 80,000 miles.
ABS light will not turn off.
When backing up, the car shuts off.
Can't run the air conditioner in the city limits because the car will overheat.
Motor went out on the right side passenger window.
Motor needs to be replaced because oil and water are mixing in the engine and it seems to be coming out of the tailpipe when the car is running.
When I first got the car, it got me where I had to go with no problems at all. It seems like when it it 80,000 miles is when the problems started. First, the timing belt, and then the fan was not blowing as powerful as it should, so I couldn't ride with the air on unless I was riding long distances, the latest problem to occur is there is water mixing with oil in the engine and I don't feel that is is safe to drive. I would buy another contour because the car handles well aside from the numerous problems, I just need one that actually works. I now have a Honda Accord and I very very satisfied.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
