1992 Ford Tempo from North America
Junk, haul it off at 50,000 miles
My head gasket blew at 50,000 miles. Replaced the head.
Water pump died at 50,000 miles replaced.
Heater core popped at 50,000 miles. Bypassed/froze
A/C quit a long time ago.
Paint is in the process of disappearing. Turning silver.
Power windows quit at 50,400 miles.
Power locks quit and locked me out.
Now the Killer. The harmonic balancer. This is irreplaceable to the shade tree mechanic.
SHAME ON YOU FORD! For making CRAP LIKE THIS. I will never buy another Ford again. Hello? Can you say lemon???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

So let me get this straight, based on your review, I'm seeing that all of these problems happened at 50,000 miles, and you acquired the car at 51,000 miles. Sounds like you bought a used car that wasn't properly maintained.

The Tempo only had a 5 digit odometer. It may have displayed 50,000 miles, but most likely has rolled over. It probably had 150,000 miles.
