Edmunds' Expert Review

1992 Highlights

V6 power becomes available but the four-wheel drive option departs. Rear stabilizer bars are added to V6 models and sequential-port fuel injection appears on all Tempos. The GLS model receives fog lamps, alloy wheels and 15-inch tires.

Impressive car.
I have owned this car for years, and I seriously cannot fault it for it's service despite my constant abuse. The one item that has been troublesome is the 3-speed automatic transmission, but I love the car so much despite it that I am planning to swap it out for a manual trans as soon as I can. I love the car so much that I just bought a '91 Tempo GLS 4cyl/5-speed to drive until I can swap a manual into the LX. I've taken about 20 cross- country trips in the LX, it never let me down. Despite the 3-speed/V6 combo, it gets respectable MPG as well. It currently has just under 200K on it.
I bought this car from a friend in November for 250 dollars. It was in pretty good condition and had 132,000 miles it is now August and I have 160,000 miles. Within that time I've replaced the starter, radiator, hubs and water pump. I've over heated the engine and beat on it. The thing still runs great just like it did the day I got it. It's a very reliable car and even though it's not as powerfull as I'd hoped it would be I instantly fell in love with it and still love it.
Avoid this car at all cost!

I bought this car from my aunt for $500 dollars, it was in exceptional condition inside and out, and it was the worst purchase I ever made. The Tempo left me high and dry many a time with such repairs and replacements in it's relatively short existence as; Head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, the entire ignition system(Starter, sylenoid, battery) TWICE, water pump, radiator, fan(twice) thermostat(twice) temp sensor, brakes(3 times), The harmonic balancer(which requires the removal of the engine) TWICE,the lens on my turn signal fell off and I glued it back on, then I said "to hell with this" when the tranny started shimmying and sold it.:)
Good vehicle, but Ford could have made better motors for the windows and locks (they went out in 2002).

Should I lease or buy a 1992 Ford Tempo?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
