1998 Ford Contour GL 2.0L from North America
I call it a poor man's 318i
I had an new 02 sensor replaced at 86,938 miles.
Great car for a teenager or a person who commutes to work in or a 2nd owner.
I love it a lot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You cannot be serious. I had the misfortune of owning a contour and then I later bought a BMW 3 series and there is no comparison between the 2. The only people who say there is are the ones who never owned a BMW before.

I've driven both, and while the 318 is a fantastic vehicle, the Contour can hold its own. I was really surprised that this boring mass market car was so much fun to drive, although it was a friend's car so I didn't have to deal with any of the hellish maintenance issues.

Consider yourself lucky because this junk heap had about 18 recalls. I agree that there is no way the 3 series and the contour have similar handling, that is just ridiculous as I have driven both myself.
