1998 Ford ContourVisitor, Terre Haute, IN, March 30, 2012 19:15My car's temp. gauge reads hot. The dash console was replaced, both temp sensors were replaced, checked fuses, connections, and the computer reads all temps are fine at 190F and the cooling fans kick on at 210f like it should and cost a small fortune to find this out! The car has 114,xxx and come to find out this March 2012 the a/c shot to craps. Rides nice but it is now for sale and I don't recommend anyone to buy it unless money, time, car issues, crappy days and bad moods are your thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is officially now a money pit.
1998 Ford ContourVisitor, Warner Robins, GA, August 29, 2011 17:50Purchased used in 2001 at 7600 miles, now at 149,800 and counting. Reliable as long as maintained, still gets 30-32 MPG consistantly. Keep tune-up, change fluids regularly, fully depreciated and will not buy a new car again!

1998 Ford Contourleogeee, Philadelphia, PA, November 18, 2010 07:09I bought my '98 Contour with 26,000 miles on it. It now has 97,000 miles. No problems with the exception of an anti-lock brake module whose 60 amp fuse is shared with the blower motor. But after 70,000 + miles, I have no real complaints. The car handles so well--like a "real" German car. (2.0 I-4 VCT Zetec, 5 spd). A winner !!Rookie

1998 Ford ContourMeatProduct, Gaithersburg, MD, August 21, 2008 11:14Excellent driver's sedan. Go for the SVT version if you can find it. Solid power, exceptional steering and cornering, and a subtly good-looking, unpretentious exterior.Enthusiast
