problem #3

Contour 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles
Dashboard began slowly warping over a year. It got to the point where visibility ahead was compromised, and the defroster vents were no longer functioning. Dealer would not cover a replacement, so I had the work done at a local body shop at my full cost. So far, the replacement dash is ok.

Contour 6-cyl

The dashboard has separated and causing visibility problems as well as problems with the venting system. The defroster air flow is diverted and essentially useless. I am concerned that the air bags could not deploy if needed. I also did not get the recall, found out about it too late. Local dealer said call Ford. Customer service suggested I get it repaired since it is a safety issue but that they would provide no help at this time. She said reports like these are what get the engineers to consider recalls---when?
