problem #1

Contour 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
Stalls for no apparent reason. It appears that when fuel gets down to approx. 1/2 tank, it will stall out at any time. Fill tank and it will be okay. Chapman Ford in columbia pa. Said it would cost about $500 to fix. I asked why and they said thats the way Ford made it. He also said the Focus has the same problem. Even though we have not had an accident, we have had close calls. Various incident dates for past six months. Even if its fixed, there is no guarantee how long it will last. I think it's a lousy answer.
