1993 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car and it was my first car. It looked nice and handled well. About 3 years ago, the clear coating over the paint started to peel away and now the car looks horrible. I've noticed that many other Fords have the same problem. I contacted Ford but they deny any problems with the paint. The car was working well for me until about 3 years ago. Now, on an annual basis I'm putting about $1,500 and I think it's time to look for a new vehicle...it is 11 years old after all. It's been generally reliable but I don't trust it on the interstate...sounds like a sick dog once I take it over 55 MPH.

Favorite Features

I liked the automatic seat belts and windows but those broke soon after I purchased the car. Automatic seat adjustors are nice too...they still work!!!

Suggested Improvements

My main complaint is that the paint doesn't hold up. I take very good care of my car so this really upsets me...especially since Ford will not stand behind their work and repair my peeling hood.
