1994 Ford Tempo GL 4dr Sedan


I got it from my parents who got it off my grandparents, in my opinion a great little grandma/grandpa car where you don't drive it a ton. Things I fixed in the last two years: tie rods, struts, brakes, valve cover gasket, fuel pump (long story there) headlight switch, oil pan leaks, head gasket leaks. In all honesty it was an ok car (it drove the Alaska highway round trip and spent a few years up there) it did leave me stranded multiple times before anyone figured out it was the fuel pump, which shook my confidence in it, lots of little things on the blink, the headlight switch keeps leaving all the lights on even after replacing it. 144k mi, time for a trade and a little Peace of mind.

Best Features

it does handle nice and like I said it made it up the ALCAN and back.

Worst Features

I do have to agree that while looking for a new car I have been looking at anything so long as it's not a FORD just had too many little problems with this guy. P.S. my Tempo burns through the L headlights like crazy, every few months, no clue why, just part of it's personality I think
