1998 Ford Contour SE 2.0L from North America
Good first driver, or inexpensive grocery getter
The O2 sensor needed to be replaced at around 65,000 miles. Though the repair was covered under warranty.
The passgener side front speaker went out at (approx.) 65,000 miles.
I honestly love this car. In the couple years we've had it it's only given us those two problems.
It handles well on the road, and for a 4 cylinder with an automatic transmission it has decent pickup.
It has been extremely reliable to us so far, and has never had any serious problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
