Great deal

by harbingirl2007 from Milddletown, CA on Fri May 02 2008

I've had my Tempo since 1996. I bought it with 29.000 miles and it now has 190,000 and is still going. I'm looking for another one but unfortunately haven't found one. I would buy it in a second! I am not sure what the maximum mileage is for a Ford Tempo, so if anyone has the answer please let me know!

Change the Tempo

by David from Parkersburg, West Virginia on Thu Jul 28 2011

I traded my 1988 Yugo GV for the Tempo, and boy thank God I did. The Tempo had 32K Miles when I purchased it. Now it's getting close to 185K. This car was the most reliable car I've ever owned. However, when I had to fix the fan belt, it cost me $750.99. I got 38 MPG on a economy run to NYC.

Happy Tempo Owner

by Car Lover from Fridley, MN on Sun Oct 11 2009

I bought this car in 2001, used with about 50,000 miles on it. I absolutely loved it! I had to park outside at work, and it never failed to start - always kicked right off. This car is very reliable!

Our Take on the 1992 Ford Tempo

Do you refuse to even turn the ignition key until assured the tissue box in the center console is full?

Do you carry an umbrella daily, just in case?

If either of the above apply, you`re a very practical person and a candidate for a 1992 Ford Tempo, the automaker`s compact, front-wheel-drive hauler of people and their possessions.

Tempo is what`s referred to as a functional, practical machine that will transport you from here to there without frequent pit stops for refueling. What you sacrifice for mileage is flair.

Tempo has grown a bit long in the tooth since arriving on the scene in mid-1983 as a 1984 model.

For 1992, Ford dipped into the fountain of youth and came up with... Read More
