Not worth the frustration
I received my Ford Tempo in 2000 with only 26,000 miles on it. I thought it was in pretty decent shape, especially because the previous owner was my grandmother.
What hasn't gone wrong with my car?
First the starter went. Twice.
I then had to get a new battery and brakes.
Then the tie rod went and nearly flipped my car over as I took a turn.
Then the cooling fan broke and so my car was over heating.
Then the starter went for a third time.
The passenger side automatic window doesn't work.
Then my favorite thing was when my car had a fuse blow and couldn't get out of park.
And now pumping gas has become a 2 person job as the gas release button no longer is functional.
All of this with less then 40,000 miles on it.
This car has had many, many problems and if my grandmother had not given it to me for free then the money I have put into this car would not be worth it.
This car is a constant headache and I cannot wait until I can afford car payments.
The only good thing about this car is that when I am driving in the city I don't need to worry about people damaging it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
