I hate my "con"........tour. It is a piece of sh*t. Dont ever buy one and if you have one get rid of it, while you still can. Every time i have a problem no mechanic can ever figure it out, instead they guess and run you into the poor house. Every thing under the hood of my car is brand spaken new. I bought my contour 2 yrs ago at a 130,000 and it now has 150,000. These contours have nothing but little glitchy problems that run into another problem. If its leaking anti-freeze and your mechanic cant figure out were its coming from, don't change the water pump because you will only waste your money, cuz it has a head gasket problem. Don't replace the timeing belt either it will still be a waste. Listen if the mechanic says the contour is a really good car. he is F**king lying, cuz they all know contours are crap and they see nothing but dollar signs, when you come rolling in.

I don't know why but the car starts too loud, and if I don't wait a minute for the engine to quiet down it will make a violent "pop".
