1990 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan


I owned this car as my first and second
car. First off it was a very nice car
for the 300 I payed for it. But it was
always needing to be fixed, but it was
never anything major. It also leaked
fluids too much. Good for a first car
or if your not making enough to afford
a real car.
Side Note: Fluid leaks are normal for
this car. get used to checking fluids
and buy a PIG mat to throw under engine
when you park it.

Best Features

Great Gas milege, It can hit a large tree and keep running (dont ask). Parts were cheap and easy to find. Part installation was easy enough to do manually, Very cheap car.

Worst Features

Car had heating problems in summertime. steering kept going out of alignment, replced a total of 5 balljoint/control arms and 2 CV shafts in the 2 years I owned the cars. Both cars suffered from leaks.
