Any ORIGINAL Owners of their Contiques on here?
#1307493 - 08/28/06 03:05 AM

Just curious. I no longer have my CSVT. I've been trolling good for over a year and 4 months now. I've moved onto my 4th car recently. I know, two totaled cars in less than a year will do that to you. I'm just wondering who on here is the original owner or second owner of their Contique? My guess is that there are VERY few.

Original owner here! Purchased 8/21/00! I bought the last of four SVT's they had on the lot, one of each color! The black one was the only one that hadn't sold. Good thing, since it was the only color I was interested in!

2nd owner here - got it as on off lease car toward the end of '98 with I think 20,000 miles on it, it has 98,000 now. Only reason I keep it is that it's been paid for for years now so it's more or less free transportaion and I'm cheap lol.

I'm an original owner. Purchased in August of 97. Fell in love with it on the road test. I was working for the dealer I bought it from. I still like it. My goal is to get it to 300,000 miles and then see if I still like it. I think I will.

Still the 1st owner here. Purchased with 62 miles on 08/09/2000. Test drove a T-red w/Tan interior and had the dealer trade for a Silver one. The dealer was about 30 mins away so I went and looked at it, it was meant to be. Factory sunroof, spoiler and no holes for the front license plate had been punched.

Sometimes I wish I had gone T-red, but the 2-tone tan interior bothered me. That and I was afraid upkeep of dark colors. Oh how I have matured.

I'm the original owner of my '00 SE Sport. I bought it new on 2/23/00 (it had 35 miles on it). It was the last new Contour they had(the dealer had a few new Foci, but I just couldn't get past the styling). Judging by its build date of 9/99, my Contour had been sitting on the lot for awhile. I took one test drive, traded in my ol' POS Intrepid, and haven't looked back since. The nearest SVT-licensed dealer, by the way, had a black SVT Contour that was quite the lot pig. I remember it stayed on the lot for over a year.

Second owner. Bought it from an SVT dealer with 68K miles on it. Former owner had been rough on it and broke pretty much everything you can break on these cars so everything was pretty much new (or rebuilt) by the time I got it. If I'd known about Oasis reports at the time, I might not have bought it but so far I'm glad I did.

Congrats to all of you folks that have had longevity in your Contiques. I wish I hadn't sold my CSVT. It was a VERY satisfying driver. Plus I knew that car inside and out thanks to the informatin on these boards.

This topic again?

Yes.

I am one.

First owner since Jan 96. Still love it or hate it, depending on mood. Just fixed my rear-end clunk last night, so right now I'm in love again.

I noticed Big Jim said he fell in love with it on the test drive. I didn't have the opportunity. Bought the car remotely from a Wichita dealer while I was overseas. Did a ton of research at the local library, and this was before the internet had really caught on. Had a friend in the states check it out in person.

Regrets? I paid too much. The car had over 2k on the odo when I picked it up. It also had a front license plate frame, which is not required in KS, and which I had specifically said to leave off. Things I would have noticed and used in negotiations, if I had been dealing locally. Oh well. It was my first experience buying a new car from a dealer. Live and learn.

Second owner.

My car was owned by "SVT2059", he traded it to a local Subaru dealership for his WRX. I saw Al post about trading it and went to look at it, my husband was sold on the test drive. I had previously driven one and was "driven" to get myself one.

Bought it three years and five months ago with approx. 79,xxx. It now has 89,000 and still runs great. **knocks wood**

I'm the original owner of my 2000 CSVT . It was built on 2.4.00 , I bought it right out of the showroom , brand-new the last week of January of 2001 . Black was NOT the color I wanted , but it was the only new CSVT I could find anywhere even remotely close to home . Turns out it's one of the last CSVT's made .

LOL. Like I posted earlier, I did not know of car web thingies and did not bother until I needed to fix the pesky P0420.

I am the second owner, but the only former owner of my car was FoMoCo... it was leased to someone in the Atlanta area for the first year of its existence.

I bought it in June of 99 with 33k miles on it and it now has 165k+ miles.

It was built on August 19, 1997, so it turned 9 years old just over a week ago.

Still have my 98 Myst LS V6 Auto 12/4/97. 132k mi with cracked paint after two years.
Replaced lower control arm, torque converter, installed modified valve body, water pump, did all maintenance.
Installed glove box light and door handle LEDs with fade out. Upgraded the factory stereo.

Replaced with Acura TSX in July. Demoted to 3rd car status, teaching my son to drive.

Currently in need of;
Front springs (service program 01L013000)
Lower control arm (same side that was replaced at 60k miles)
Blower resister
VSS

Generally satisfied with the car but finished with Ford.

I know most of the posts were helping others. So this year's Tony Award goes to ..... Tony!

No smoke at all actually...lol
I am one of those people who know says as soon as I change the filter/antifreeze something will go wrong. Have to admit it still runs real strong, only problems are the clunks and creaks...

Yeah after 160k+ miles of improper maintenance, I'd probably be afraid to touch anything as well.

Original owner, bought it in Charleston, SC (July '97) while giving an Air Force Checkride. Over 112,000 miles on it, it's been a true daily driver. My wife's on her 3rd car since then and my kids are on their 2nd car since then....

Love it how people post in a topic calling for OG owners with "I'm the 4th owner and bought it in 2004"


Bought my C-SVT new December 1999. 74K miles, daily driver, no repair issues.

Only reason why I still own it is that I'm cheap and it's paid for. At times I wish it would get toalled, stolen, or have the engine blow. Then I would have no other choice but to buy a new car.
