Good First Car If You Are Looking To Drive A Car For A Short Period Of Time. — I bought this car for 700 dollars. What I needed to replace was a gas tank, brakes, routers, the muffler is completely rusted. I drove this car for almost 2 years and all of a sudden the wheel bearing died and my rear tire fell off. I'm lucky I wasnt driving on a highway. Besides that, this old thing got me back and forth 6 hour car rides all the time and it made it just fine. The car looks nice and the seats inside are comfortable. Mine came with a really nice stereo and cd player from the previous owner. This car is good for a first car but not something that will last too long because eventually it will fall apart :( It gets really loud. It was a good first car and for 700 dollars, I got my money worth out of it. also, if you hit something or another car, they get damaged, you dont. You can run this car in anything and it can barely get a mark. and I can go 4 hours driving until it gets on E. I also kept up with oil changes but I had a problem with the antifreeze coolant. I would always have to refill that and maintain that as well as the oil.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: covenant for a first car, it works for a little bit.

Cons: it will eventually fall apart and die.  and when the wheel bearing dies, it's hard to find a part to replace it cause no one makes ford tempos anymore.

If You Don't Ming Crawling In And Out Of It As It Is Low To Ground Good Car — Fairly good performance for 2.3Liter, Still runs great with good gas mileage fair on expense except for a few design flaws sure was not made to drive on Michigan's pot filled roads.Body has held up very well for being a Mi. car. Main problems seat-belt shoulder strap motors do not last, struts and coil springs are not as strong as I would like and water pump is a poor design

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great on gas and trunk has ample room

Cons: a few design flaws

Seeing That It's 2010, These Cars Arent Worth Having Anymore. All Are Pretty Much Broken Down — Performance - 4cyl engine, braked decent, handed alright Build Quality - Had to replace the starter, coolant hose, front tires and brakes, wheel bearings. Rusted out Appearance - Ugly car, comfortable seats. Cost - gas mileage was decent, maintenance isn't worth it. Fun - The most fun is beating it up

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good first car, Mini tank

Cons: Ugly, Likes to break, Not much room

Stay Away, Stay Far Away. — This was by far the worst car I've ever owned. Within two weeks of buying the car, we had to replace the alternator, which started a huge slide of repairs made that exceeded the cost of the car itself. I would never, ever buy another Ford again after that car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: There are none!

Cons: Worst car ever made

Ford Tempo V6 — Best car ever, it was a beast, but it was my beast....power gas mileage, spaceous.... it was a beater to the bone. Ownership is cheap....buy it cheap..maintain it cheaper It's a blast to drive on the highway, I never had a single problem with the car in the 4 months I owned it...except the accident which wasn't the cars fault.

Pros: Powerful, good on gas

Cons: Ugly as sin

Cons: small car

Money Disposal — it sucked, the harmonic balancer goes out because its center gasket/washer wears down and causes the crackshaft pulley to throw the serpentine belt off everytime you tap the gas too hard.

Cons: harmonic balancers on tempos suck
