Wife needed a cheap car for work and shopping so this fit the bill. Did okay on gas, but not very reliable since we didn't know the service history of this vehicle
My First Car
I bought my Ford Tempo with my grandma as a present for skipping Christmas due to having appendicitis. My grandma told me that she would buy me a car after I got out of the hospital. We had to put at least $300 worth of work. But my little white Ford has only 108,000 miles on it when we got the little gem. All in all, I love my little Tempo. The ONLY thing I don't like are those automatic shoulder belts, as they retract when you turn the key. It is so annoying! Other than that for a 20 year old car, she runs great and starts up every time.
Mediocre econemy car.
The Ford Tempo is a mediocre econemy car. It tends to understeer around corners often. It has zero power and is very slow. The interior is bland with grays and grays. Its also a Non-Tall-PErson-Friendly car. Other than these it tends to rust really bad! As worse as my escort. Which Is super rusty! Overall Id give it a 4-10 .
