ford tempo ease and price of maintenance...

Asked by Apr 01, 2015 at 03:16 PM about the 1990 Ford Tempo 4 Dr GL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am thinking if buying Ford Tempo 1990 used car with 48K mileage for $1300, I want to ask few questions relating to maintenance;
- does this car have lots of issues come up, the older it gets
- is it easy to do maintenance on your own, i.e. are engine parts accessible or needs special tools, taking lots of things out to get access to others....
- is it easy to get replacement parts...

and anything else anyone can mention...
