1999 Ford Contour SE Sport 2.5 DOHC from North America
Plenty of power, but poor quality interior
At about 80,000 kilometers the clutch went and the whole clutch assembly had to be replaced. I couldn't believe it and when the car was repaired, which took over a week, I had the clutch looked at by another mechanic. He told me the parts looked barely worn.
The dashboard has become warped and is no longer smooth with the windshield. The cover for the defrost outlet where the air is blasted out onto the windshield no longer stays in place.
The car rides and handles great. Its tuned liked a European car so it handles corners with ease. Plenty of ponies under the hood.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
