I had a manual contour in high school and I loved it. It was fun to drive and fairly reliable. I bought it used with 300,000 ish miles on it. It had it's problems when I got it. I had to replace the alternator twice in the first 3 months I had it. Nobody could seem to tell me why, but I didn't have to do it again in the 3 years I owned it. Aside from that, I had no real issues other than a cracked oil pan. By the time I got rid of it, it was nearing 390,000 miles.
