One of my favorite automobiles
By Chris P on
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
-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...
