I purchased this car about a year ago for 200 dollars, with only 68,000 original miles. Great fuel economy! Turns on a dime. Alot of interior space in front, & back seats. Hugh trunk. Best heater I've ever had on any car. Starts up well, even on the coldest mornings. This car had sit for about a year, without being started up or run, so I was shocked when I went to get it, and it started up on the first try. The only thing that I think I will have a problem with in the future is the transmission. It's a little sluggish, and with talking to others that have owned, or has this car, they have had some problems, when they get up to 90,000 miles.I've owned newer cars that's not as reliable.
Fuel economy,Hugh Trunk,Roomy,Reliability, Easy to see out of back when backing, & it really does warm up fast, even on cold mornings. And thats usually not said often for a Ford.
I bought my car from my neighbor almost 1 year, for $500. I figured It would last a month or so, 6 months tops. 1 year later, I'm still driving it. It's been a great little car. Sure, I've had to have a few repairs done, but none of them were major and most were things I had to have done with a car 20 years newer! I've considered selling it, but it's been so good to me, I think i'll just do a few cosmetic repairs and keep it. It's reliable and it has never left me stranded. Great car for the money!
Buttons in glove box that open trunk and gas cap. Very convenient
I would love a cupholder. I've spilled 1 million drinks because I dont have one!
This was my first car. I wanted a
tempo after my mom walked out of a
60mph head on accident with a very
minor temporary injury. I purchased
mine for $400 from my aunt at 105k
miles. Engine is very strong, and
tranny is responsive. in 13 years the
car has been towed once for a dead
battery, and left me on the side of
the road once when the engine block
heater fell out becuase of an
overtightned bolt (bad mechanic?). I
took the car off the road when it was
due for CV Joints, Boots, and body
work. Total parts for this car in 13
years costed $400. I purchased a 1996
Taurus SE as a replacement...I miss my
-Powerful engine for its time, keeps
up if not beats many modern civics,
accords, neons, ect.
-IT WILL GO ANYWHERE IN THE SNOW!
-I love the look, still looks modern.
-You can put a refridgerator in the
trunk opening...No lie. Try that with
-Center mounted E-Brake
-Allignment problems, still found in
Ford front wheel drive vehicals.
-Cup holder would have been nice.
-Give us our Tempo's back... :-( Many
people swore by these cars...
