Parts going obsolete
#1310186 - 08/31/06 06:59 PM

Well boys and girls, the time has come. I am starting to notice a large amount of Contour/Mystique parts going obsolete from Ford. This inlcludes almost all interior trim and even thing like the SVT radiator. I just picked up the last 3 from another dealer, I now only have (1) left.

So if you have little items that you want replaced, now is the time do it.

I will post a link to the list of part going this month, if you need help with a part #, let me know.

I thought I read somewhere that Federal law requires automakers supply parts for any given model for around 25 years. Am I off base on this?

From what I know, they only have to make parts for as long as a car would be covered under warranty. Ford is 7 years or 100,000 mile, or whatever comes first. Now on a Focus, it may be 10 years or 100,000 on powertrain parts.

Thus begins the slow death of the Contique. Gonna go out with a squeak, I guess. A mere footnote in Ford's domestic automotive history.

sucks about the interior parts...mechanical and such i'm sure you could get aftermarket if needed, though i don't know about svt specific parts.
