1991 Pontiac Tempest Review
It's A Good One — This was my second Pontiac Tempest. The first one was just as awesome but I couldn't afford to keep it. I drove this one for 8 years, then sold it to my kid, who drove it another 3 years. It has now gone to the automobile graveyard. It was excellent on gas, power was so-so but adequate. Easy to work on and not that expensive to maintain. It had a lot of options for the model, as it was an LE.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: They made a million of them over the years
Cons: The head gasket tends to go on this particular motor
