1990 Ford Tempo 4dr Sedan AWD

Review

Well, I bought this car because it was inexpensive. Right after I got it, it started getting all kind of leaks. The CV joints went bad though the boots were good. The motor, tranny, and power steering all had minor leaks. The AWD didn't work, the car got bad mileage, and the door handles ALL fell off. The radiator fan needed replacement, along with numerous sensors. The auto front belts were slow and noisy. Chaep car. Avoid these even if they're inexpensive and look nice.

Favorite Features

Price; Nicely weighted steering. Had tall ground clearance and looked cool. Good quality red paint. Good interior fit and finish. Typical solid Ford interior.

Suggested Improvements

Awful ergonomics. Cheap buzz saw motor. Old Ford style reliability.Numerous electronic glitches and low power. Leaks from everything except window washer!
