1992 Ford Tempo GL from North America
An economically smart choice for a high performing car
My muffler fell off at 150000.
I needed a new starter at 153000.
Water pump went at 154000.
But before that stretch of repairs nothing went wrong since I bought it and the battery lasted ten years.
Great car, it is very economical while providing a comfortable ride.
The car lacks power, but is very capable of handling high speeds. The acceleration is rather slow, but can zoom past other cars with considerable ease.
The seats are very comfortable and there is lots of room in the car for cargo.
Very under rated, all my friends think that Tempo's are slow, ugly and poor performing cars, but once they rode in it they changed their opinion.
The Tempo does not score high for its look, but rather because it is a great all round car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
