95 contour bad buy here
i bought a contour-had low miles.200 miles later, the tie rod ends failed(not covered)car shakes bad at idle and runs at almost redline temp at normal driving.when accelerating, the engine noise is terrible-sounds like its made out of tin.my other car was a ford escort-a 93- that i sold. it had 258,000 miles on it with me replacing only the struts and the wheel bearings once in the entire time i owned it since new.repairman for contour told me the 4 cyl. engine is known for vibrations and is a bit too small for the car.shelled out 1200 bucks and fixed it then sold it for 5k.i will not be getting any more of these contours.they are scrap in my opinion.why must fords cars be a hit/miss on their quality?
