2 alternators and battery.
Many brakes (I have to remove the ABS because of that)
Water enter under driver's side floor.
One muffler at 130,000km.
The gas cover is going alone of is position (in the garbage)
I think the front shocks will need a replacement in a short time.
This car is amazing!!! I receive it from my grand-father in gift and, from this time, I have nothing to do out of changing tire.
The V6 is powerful and cheap on gas, a really rare thing. Not like the 4-cylinder, but it's good. 30mpg, I think it's great. I pull my wood with and never the transmission slip.
The rear seat is comfortable, but you have to find place for your leg. With that, 2 big person (not tall) can take place comfortably on this seat.
Only bad things of this car is:
-The handling is really poor because of the bad steering and the smooth suspension.
-Alternator was strong as a baby who try to walk for the first time.
-The wings start to have hole, but it's cheap to repair.
Out of that, the Pontiac Tempest is a great solution for who, like me, want a cheap and reliable car to go to college, to work or like a winter car.
