1997 Ford Contour GL 2.0 from North America
I think I have a lemon
Bought the car just under a month ago, since then it has been back to the shop 3 times (under the 30 day guarantee) once for a sudden loud banging noise when turning right, twice for the check engine light, and it`s just come on again, 1 day after coming out of the shop.
Today the brakes have started shuddering when braking and a clunking noise from the back end whilst driving.
I think this is diabolical, also noticed creaking noises when moving slowly, removing the wheel trims cured this, but caused a headache.
Check engine light is again illuminated.
Performance wise it does well, tonight the O/D off light started flashing whilst driving home.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
