My first Ford was an '85 Tempo. Really a nice car. M wife had a couple Fords, as did my parents. Now for the bad news. My Fiesta was the last Ford I will ever own. It was incredibly unreliable. 17 problems in four years and over 40 trips to the deallership!!! My Honda is not quite as old as my Fiesta when I got rid of it, but it has 25,000 miles. One set of tires and front brakes. That's all folks. No service engine now, no cluks or steering problems, struts or electrical gremlins from hell.
