1994 Ford Tempo GL 2.3 HSC 4 cyl from North America
A good car at a great price
A transmission mount had to be replaced at a cost of $35 for the mount, $20 for the labor.
An ignition cylinder had to be replaced at 89K, cost $50 for the part and labor.
Regular oil/oil filter changes.
Minor tune up: $63.00
Other than that I've had to replace one fender and a driver's side turn signal lamp because a deer hit it.
The car has been 100% great compared to my old Toyota, Nissan and Mazda. It isn't as nice as a Taurus but it is very frugal and is easy to work on. I've added a K&N Filtercharger to it to give it more power.
For the sound system I have a 6-disk CD changer, two kicker 8's and an amp.
Right now it's light blue but it will be painted later.
It's nearly fully loaded, with every power option. The only things that were optional and weren't put on this car are a V6 engine and a tachometer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
