So, the G20 may be going bye bye soon.

Yeah, so anyways. Today I was running around town, when I decided to stop in and test drive a 98' SVT Contour. I think I am hooked. If I am hooked, the G20 will be traded in, or sold. :o

That may be true, but the SVT Contour will whip a stock G20 any day of the week. However; if i were you i'd research the Contour very carefully before you purchase. A friend of mine owns one (not the SVT model) and it has been nothing but problems since day one. If you're going to trade in the G20, i'd look at cars that will have good reliability while still being sporty, comfortable, and stylish. Hell, i'd take the SVT Focus over the SVT Contour. It's cheaper, can carry more cargo, has more go-fast parts, and is more reliable (at least, as reliable as a Ford can be).

God I hate Ford. Just hope your tires dont blow out, your engine bay doesnt catch fire, an I hope you dont mind owning a unreliable POS.

Has your employer drug tested you lately? :right:

I have a friend around the corner from me who parted with his 92 SE-R for a 98 or 99 SVT Contour. It's a POS. He's fed up. He's fed up. He's already replaced it with an Acura TL and is looking to unload that turd.

I can put you in touch with him if you want info or want to buy it.

You know, I actually like Ford. If I was going to buy American, I would buy a Ford. In our family we've had nothing but good luck with our Fords, my brother has a 91 Mercury Cougar with 180,000 miles and it still purrs like a kitten, pardon the pun. And we've had 1 Explorer (my brother flipped it, and if you're thinking that it was the tires, it wasn't. That Explorer had Goodyears), 2 Mountaineers, the first a 97 which we put 60,000 miles on in 3 years was still like new when we got rid of it, and we now have a 2000 Mountaineer which now has 20,000 miles on it.

And how much are they going to run? Yeah, exactly. I dont want to be stuck in a car payment. If I sell the G20, and decide (yes, I am undecided) to get a SVT Contour, I could easily pay cash for it up front.
