I brought my car "Anna" on Craigslist in 2012. The car has not let me down yet. I have never had a flat, and the fixes for the car are minimal. I put oil in the car every 6 months and she takes me all over Washington State. There is a light oil leak in the gasket, but my mechanic says "So what, it took 16 years to get it there". She does drink more gas than I would prefer though. At 44 mpg, I thought she would be a little more gas efficient, but that is her only flaw. She is small enough to park anywhere, and it's easy to maneuver her steering. The air conditioner works great after 16 years. The back seat is a bit small, as well as the trunk, but the seat-belts work great, no issues. The doors squeak a little, but nothing WD-40 won't fix. No "check engine lights" on, no brake lights, t... (more)
Story
It was 1:30 in the morning and we had just moved to Auburn, WA. No street lights, and a million trees on the road. With only a phone GPS to guide us, we made it through the 200 foot tall trees on little back streets and farmland roads to Seattle, WA without knowing where we were. We were so grateful my car didn't break down. My little car Anna made it through those woods and to safety.
Pros
The car never stops running, rain or shine. The gas is cheap, the tires are compact, the body of the car is real metal, not plastic or aluminum, the air conditioner still runs great after 16 years.
Cons
Sometimes the window on the passenger side sticks, the car drinks more gas than I would like. The trunk could be a bit bigger, as well as the back seat. The doors to the back seat are oddly shaped, so it's hard to get square items like fish tanks or big boxes in the back seat.

I like the car over-all. It runs great for being as old as it is, and gets great gas mileage. Also, the seats have an adjustment for lumbar support which is great for people like me - with a bad back. The dash is coming up which is a bit of an eyesore, but it doesn't get in the way when driving. One thing that I do not like is that the steering wheel doesn't move, so it's hard to get comfortable. Also, because it doesn't move I have to have my seat further back for my legs to fit under the wheel. I have trouble being able to reach the radio since the seat is so far back. I don't like how slanted the back seats are, because it makes it difficult to get the base of my daughter's car seat level, and it slides around once installed. I like the electric windows and locks. It has cruise cont... (more)
Story
We took the car on our first road trip after having our daughter - it was our first family vacation.
Pros
It runs great. I like the power windows and locks. I also like the gas mileage the car gets. The seats have an adjustment for lumbar support which is great for my back.
Cons
It's not the best looking car in the world. The wheel isn't adjustable, so it makes it difficult to get comfortable. This means I have to sit further back away from the wheel for my legs to fit comfortably, which makes it hard to reach the radio. Also, the back seats are slanted too much which makes it hard to properly install my daughter's car seat. The cruise control has no light on the dash to let you know it is on/in use.

I have a 1997 Ford Contour I purchase about a year ago from a private owner for around $1,100 dollars. Overall, it's been a reliable vehicle and has gotten me from point A to point B. There have been a couple minor issues that we have had to fix along the way, but nothing major. The biggest issue that we have had to deal with is the engine overheating. Luckily, we were able to attach a toggle switch to the fan, which allows us to control when we need to turn it on. Besides that, it has been a relatively comfortable vehicle and is durable enough to handle two small children. Of course, I wish it had more room, but for being a 4-door sedan - I can't complain! I have definitely gotten my $1100 out of it that I paid for it.
Story
My daughter loves to go fast and one day while I was shopping, her dad and her decided to drive the vehicle around the store as fast as it could go (while still being under control). I guess the vehicle handled the turns great and it made my daughter laugh uncontrollably. She has loved the car from that moment on....
Pros
The top positive things about the vehicle that I like are the automatic door locks and windows, which still all work. The backseat is relatively spacious and comfortable enough for my two small children. Lastly, it gets decent gas mileage, which is crucial now days.
Cons
The most negative issue that I have had to deal with is the engine overheating. I was able to find a solution to the problem, but I can see how other vehicles of this make and model would not be so fortunate. The other issue that I have had is the method that they installed to move the back seat forward and back. It's manual and is a knob that you twist with your hand on the side of the seat. Personally, I have a hard time twisting it and am unable to do it myself.
