1991 Ford Tempo GL ??? from North America
I bought the car for $600 from my boyfriends mom. Her dad had looked at it and kept up care on it while it sat in a garage for 2 years. I drove it home (4hr. drive) with no problems. I then took it to a shop for general look over. Turns out the total repair on the car was more than I paid for it. The head gasket was leaking oil on the wires, new spark plugs, upper/lower ball joints/control arms needed to be changed, wheel alignment, and other stuff. I got some of it changed, others I couldn't afford. Then I moved. While driving home from work one night-2 blocks from home, the battery and alternator went. The car stalls a lot-especially on turns (ex. parking spaces or sharp turns). It's comfortable to sit in, but when I drive it, I feel like I will die. Just recently I found out that the back wheel cylinders will need to be changed-bled and flushed and also the inner tie rods-which this company said could be the same as the control arms-No one knows what's going on with the car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
