"Bought this car for $100 after sitting 14 years. Put a battery in and started right up, sounded amazing. Have only had to replace a few parts in the two years I've had it. Replacement engine and transmission a really great price, should the need ever arise. Had a lot of cosmetic issues, but no rust. The car design is ugly to me, but it runs well and is very reliable, unlike my previous experience with fords.
I love that it has windows that go up when the car is shut off (non-powered windows FTW! )
Great car, definitely recommended for beginners."
"I have owned tempo's and topaz's for 7 years now. the first one I got was a 94 topaz GS. got 30 MPG and was quick for my young age. with nothing but maintenance work, the car lasted 4 years, and over 50000 miles of abuse that I put it though.
since that car, I have owned 6 other tempo's, ranging from parts cars to sellers to my Daily driver, and none of them did I pay over 700 dollars for. For the price, they are a great car."
