Not the fastest, but handles like a true performance car
Passenger side window motor replaced at 70,000 miles.
Power steering rack replaced at 80,000 miles.
I love the Contour SVT - small, easy to drive, nimble, quick (but not a quarter-mile terror).
Great seats, light clutch. Good field of vision all around.
Engine sound above 3500 RPM is incredible.
Drinks premium fuel only, though. Seats 4 adults; however, the back seat area can be cramped.
SVT specific parts are starting to become harder to find from the dealer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
