Nice Car — It will get me to point a then point b, but it takes it time changing gears. A mechanic said some of the governor gears were striped out. And it starts to run hot when sitting still to long, the fan stopped working on it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it runs good

Cons: changes gears sometime

Tempo — My 1990 Ford Tempo is and all around beast. It is a very good runner and can do minor burnouts. Its is worth about 500 dollars but it is worth more than that to me. It is very fun to drive around and look at fields in and just cruise the neiborhood in.

Pros: It is a beast

Cons: there are none

It's My Baby And I Love It! — My Sora-Ni (that's my car's name) is the most beautiful Tempo ANYWHERE! Plus, like her name states, she runs like a beautiful cloud!

Pros: She runs like a dream and has never ever grumbled at me. Mostly, she just growls at every one else! Hee hee....my car doesn't purr....she GROWLS!

Cons: She needs a bit of maintenance here and there, and she isn't the best on gas, but she's the most fuel efficient vehicle I have ever driven. But yeah, nothing serious yet!

No Problems — traded the car for a chain saw 5yrs ago. Put new tires on it. Now the thermostat is bad and thats all that has been done to it. It is more dependable than newer cars I owned. I have no idea on the milage, the paint has oxidized, some tears on the interior. Someone once offered me 2000 dollars for this car, because it runs like a champ and told them "NO WAY"! I know this car like I know myself. I just love it. Someday I would like dress it up with a new paint job and interior. This car helped me get my degree and it is helping my sister get hers. No matter what the weather, it waits to be called on and off I go. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
