1992 Ford Tempo GLS 2dr Coupe

Review

I bought my Tempo as a work car from a friend of my dad's. I had planned on getting a new one but the plant a worked at shut down. I didn't change the oil for 1500 miles. The electric door locks don't work but the manuals still do. After realizing I was going to have to keep it I changed the brakes calipers and drums. Charged the air conditioner and flushed the coolant system. Changed the oil and flushed the engine the old fashioned way with kerosene.The front driver's side was then hit at a light and I bought a new single fender and bumper from a junk yard. The fender doesn't match but who cares. The thing wont die! Very well built and dependable car. Great mileage.

Favorite Features

After an exhaust modification my gas mileage is over 30 mpg. I did all the work myself. Easy to work on. Even if you're buying new parts they are inexpensive.

Suggested Improvements

Get a good stereo system and and watch the heater a/c switches. Mine nearly set it on fire.
