reliable? I"ve had the displeasure of driving one of those cars before and it was THE biggest POS I've driven to date. It was a 91. Horrible reliablity, gas mileage... I can't think of any positivies to that car over anything else really. Sucks to hear about the head gasket on that Aurora, atleast it'* not common. (much less common than the UIM failure on the 3800.)

Thing is, a 3800 equipped vehicle is actually worth the repair if the intake should fail.

A car like that is for someone who lives in a smaller town, and just needs something to get around in. Maybe to and from the grocery, or maybe work if they lie close.
That car is not good for long commutes. I have owned similar.

FUN FACT - if someone needs a "point A to B" 4 banger car cheap, real cheap, check out the reliant or aries K. It is nothing sexy, but better than a tempo.

this topic was not posted for the questionability of tempo'*.. the only reason his mom thinks they are reliable is cuz he had one before, and only got rid of it cuz we were playing football and smashed the windshield...

lets hope to god he doesnt have to downgrade from aurora to tempo
