1993 GL V6 Tempo
By D. Goodrode on
1993 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan
Got it with 86k on it, needed complete tune-up, 3.0 V6 is great, trans has no O.D. or lock up converter, but shifts great, (shades of the 1960's), put 10% over size tires on front, get 22 to 26 MPG average, everything works on the car, 42 Degree A/C on 95 Degree days, change oil with 15w40 Diesel oil every 4k miles, runs like a Swiss watch, no oil leaks, usual maintenance items, car now has 102k on it, good riding car, kind of boring to drive, but so far very very reliable, good daily driver, what more could you want for $900.00? Looking for a reason to get a newer car but the darn thing just won't give me a reason to retire it!
Interior fairly roomy, radio w/tape player still sounds good, seats not to bad, for what it is it's great!
Transmission needs overdrive gear and a lock up torque converter, for crying out loud Ford, this was 1993 not 1963.
