1989 Ford Tempo GL 2.4L from North America
Economy, reliability, performance, all in one very in-expensive box
Replaced the Rotors twice since 1989.
The Brakes 3 times.
Leaks a little bit of oil out of the Oil Pan.
A/C went out at 90,000 miles.
Drivers side seat worn down a bit.
Alternator terminals melted numerous times.
Aligment somehow gets thrown off badly every 40,000 miles.
Little bit of stalling problems, but fuel injector cleaner fixed that in a jiffy.
I must say this car is extremely reliable, and still runs like a charm, starts fast, warms quickly, and all this with almost 244,000 miles.
The Ford Tempo has a bad reputation for being a lemon, but that is only because a lot of people own them.
I must say this is the best car I have ever own, and it has gotten me from point "A" to point "B" tens of thousands of times.
The repairs above are some of the basic things that happen to all cars. Considering the amount of miles and beats I have put this car through, I think it runs like a charm.
No paint peeling problems.
No real bad oil leakage.
No overheat problems.
No transmission problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
