1994 Ford Tempo Coupe GL 2dr Coupe


Review

I've had this car for two years now and it has been great so far. I bought it for $1200 with 156,000 kms. It now has 230,000 kms and it's still going strong. The only problems I've had with this car have been minor. I've done regular oil changes. Tie rod ends have had to be replaced but the parts don't cost too much. It's gotten me to a lot of places. The experience I've had with it is that it's a reliable car. I mean it's no luxury car by any means but it is a good cheap car. Never had any problems with it starting up in the cold weather either. I'd recommend the Tempo for anyone looking for a cheap car.


Best Features

Cheap and reliable.


Worst Features

Tie rod ends seem to a problem with all these cars.

Review

Problems, problems, problems...had the
transmission replaced right when the
car was purchased used around 60,000
miles and same problem has come up
again at 123,000 miles. Tie rods have
been replaced many many times. Engine
races in idle. Won't start when it's
cold outside. Takes 3 or 4 times to
start the car on a regular day. Don't
purchace!!!


Best Features

Comfortable seats


Worst Features

Worst Ford car ever!!!! Everything about it needs to be fixed.

Review

Nine years is the longest I've ever owned
a car and my Tempo never let me down in
all that time; however the cost of
repairs recently has made me decide that
I didn't want to go through another
Michigan winter with it. It was time for
a new car so I'm donating it to charity
where I hope someone else can make good
use of the life that's left in it. I'll
be saying my goodbyes to it tomorrow so
I'm feeling particularly sentimental
right now. Emotions aside, I've always
had reliable cars with Ford and my Tempo
lasted the longest and gave me many great
times across long distances. I'm going
to miss it very much.


Best Features

Reliability and comfort are its strongest points. I love the great looks of it too.


Worst Features

Pick up could have been better especially when merging onto highways.

Review

THe first thing ford should have done
is put a 4-speed automatic in the
car. The car sucks on the highway and
it sucks for passing people. Interior
is ugly and uncomfortable. extierior
is a cheap ripp off of the mustang
(front end) Not the best car in my
book.
