Its Overall Good. I Find It Wierd That Everyone Bashes On This Car. This Car Has Treated Me Well. — very small and very quick ford. ive owned the 4cyl and the 6 cyl(which is this one) and the 6 cyl is a powerhouse. it handles turns really well and is a very fun little car to fool around in the snow.alot of little things go. but thankfully not many big problems occurr.parts are cheap to replace for this vehicle.th4 cyl get about 40 highway. and the 6 gets 24 highway. but the 6 cyl is more then worth it because of how quick this little thing is

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: quick.handles well.low cost to maintain

Cons: none

Great For An Everyday Driver, But If You Are Going Out Of Town Take Something Else. — Dislikes: 4 cylinder, ugly, and no power. Likes: Gas Mileage, Tough as nails, and fun to drive. This was my first car, and to this day I miss the excellent gas mileage. Sure was fun to drive and love the new owner is having fun in it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent Gas Mileage

Cons: No power or performance

The Tempo Of Doom — Lets see what there is to say about my tempo... To start, the Transmission was screwed up, It was an automatic, but you had to put it into second gear, until it came out of first... then put it in drive. The rear passenger tire was nearly coming off, due to broken struts and the wheel well seperating from the body. The bumper was duct taped on, only one headlight, a hole about 16 inches in diameter was on the back passenger floorboard, you could see road. The shoulderstraps were broken on the seatbelts... But best of all... 3 mechanics told me the car wouldn't last a month... a year and a half, and 16000+ miles, it finally died.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Ford Tempo's will fall apart before they stop running.

Cons: You put your life on the line every time you get into one.

Slow, Ugly And Boring — this car overall is: slow unattractive and handles like a shopping cart. its 2.3L engine gives it little to no power and really isn't even that great on gas, sure it may be better than say a family sedan dut for a small car it is terrible! It is however pretty reliable--unless you plan on starting it in weather colder than -20--i have not had too many problems with it suprizingly even for the year! overall i would not reccomend this car to anyone unless you need a cheap car for the time being.

Pros: it is fairly reliable in warmer weather

Cons: slow very boring and is not very good on gas

92 Temop Gls — My GLS tempo was equipped with a 3.0 V6 and 5 speed manual transmission, i paid $200 for the car and didn't expect much out of it. I beat the hell out of it and it never complained once. sold it for $200 8 months later.

Pros: fast (for a tempo) fun to drive,  huge sway bars, cornered well

Cons: holes in the floors, cheaply made

1992 Ford Tempo — Car was extremely reliable, needed almost no repairs, repairs were cheap. Has weak alternator and rear suspension. Roomy-ish interior, plain but acceptable exterior styling. Performance is decent, but the 3 speed auto tranny is the weak link, it is harsh and revs at 2900 at 60mph. top speed 197kph on the 401/400 in T.O.....NOT RECCOMMENDED IN A TEMPO

Pros: 350000k's and still ran great, reliable, gas mileage, interior room

Cons: road noise, 3 speed tranny, high speed stability

Solid Built Car — Good car, got it from my grandparents two years ago. Doesn't look the greatest but does what it needs to and gets me to anywhere I need to go. Gas mileage is okay, I get around 400-450km before I need to find a gas station. Not to big of a car, which is good for parking. Overall: Good car.

Pros: Still runs, milage is ok.

Cons: Not the best looking vehicle

Ford Tempo — Pretty reliable little car. Bought it 5 years ago for like $600 and it still runs great. Good on gas. Haven't has a breakdown yet. Parts are cheap. No power at all though, but I've gotten it up to about 85+ on the highway... not bad for a straight 4 cylinder.

Pros: Reliable, good on gas.

Cons: Straight 4 cylinder.

Another Nice Ford I Owned... — Performance was very good:acceleration was very very good,braking was good and handling was very good. Build quality was good. Appearance was very good for the interior and good for the exterior. Tempo 4 dr GLS needs lot of gas `cause it is a performance car and it`s a 4 dr that means more weight(than 2 dr). I never had any major engine/transmission problems. This car was very very fun to drive.

Pros: performance

Cons: build quality and appearance

It Was A Good Car While It Lasted — This was one of my old favorite car, not flashy at all, I had it so it won't draw attention. I didn't like the color, but it's a good car nevertheless..

Pros: roomy, dependable

Cons: not powerful, not good in appearance
