1990 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan


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 tempo though...

Best Features

-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 a Camry. -Center mounted E-Brake

Worst Features

-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...
