1998 Ford Contour GL from North America
A high priced lemon
My brakes made a bad squealing noise after I purchased the car. I was told to get the brakes fixed myself because it was not a covered item on the 4000 mile warranty. To top it all off, I got new brakes and they still squeal.
The "check engine" light came one 48 hours after I got the car. The dealer took it to the repair shop, they said it was nothing wrong with it.
You could not unlock the front door, but they only took off $100 from the sticker price. To avoid embarrassment, I paid $100 to get key less entry.
The power windows stopped working in the back seats one month later.
Half of the speakers went out 2 weeks later.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
