I bought my ford tempo one year old,
and before 50000 miles the transmission
needed to be replaced. so i spent 500
dollars right there. thinking bad
luck. oh boy was i wrong. then all of
a sudden it got this noise in the
engine that sounded like a coke can
stuck in the belt. so i brought it to
the shop and they fixed it, but then it
came back louder not even 1 month
later. come to find out it was yet
again the transmission. then i tried
to trade it off to a dealer... they
said that it by itself would not be a
good enough down payment for a decent
car, and that i would need atleast 2
grand more to put with it to make a
nomal down payment.

Many people often overlook these fine little cars that Ford built during the last two decades. They really are decent cars, my Tempo is a work-horse, and extremely reliable. It's a fun little car to drive. Granted they weren't built perfect, but they are still nice.
