(Entirely a joke, I know people that own Fords)
my neighbour has a 01 taurus, and hes pretty up there in the age im talkin like 70-80 i forgot the exact age, so its not like he hot rods it or anything but at 30k his shocks and struts are bad, and the tires are cupped, he had to have the egr pressure sensor replaced at the local shop even tho ford had a customer satisfaction recall on it, and the dealer said it didnt, so he had me contact ford regarding it and they are refusing to reimburse him for the $150 for the replacement cuz it wasnt at a ford dealer, EVEN tho the dealer said there was NO satisfaction program covering it, boy with this company the right hand dosent know what the left hand is doing and vice/versa

well, when you think about it, who really is putting out good cars now days?

kias and stuff break everything twice by the time the warranty is up, if your lucky. the warranty will never be honored, so you have spent more money on this car, than you would have a hummer <yes, in the long run too>

gm is just kinda fizzling out seems like

foreigns seem to be taking the lead now days <toyotas and stuff>

i think cars in general nowadays arent worth buying new. gimme an oldie, ill be happy.

Possible solution for you, if the reflectors on those are plastic.
Just drill two small (1/8 inch) holes in thebottom of the fixtures, one on each side.
That'll allow any atanding water to run out, and any condensation to be expelled by the heat of the bulbs.

Hey, I used to drive a Tempo.

It was a 4-door with the 2.3... and it was a good little car. But then I got rear-ended and totalled it.

I distinctly remember my thought immediately after the other vehicle hit my rear end and sent me flying forward. Before the car had even stopped rolling, I was saying to myself, "I'm getting a new car.... I'm getting a new car."

From there I graduated (yes rjolly, graduated) to a '95 Olds 88. And after that, a beautiful white '97 Bonneville.

Rjolly, the Tempo isn't a bad ride, but when'* graduation day buddy?

when you come and rear end me?

i gotta find a job before i can do anything right now. and there is this 87 dark blue bonneville sitting at a car lot by my house for $550. i might look into that to hold me over until i can find a real bonneville, after i get a job of course.
