1993 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan


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.

Best 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!!!

Worst Features

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.
