8. Ford Tempo
As if the ’80s weren’t bad enough for Ford, the Tempo hit the scene. This ugly sedan was probably one of the worst American sedans ever made. The Tempo was notorious for reliability issues and this plagued the car well into its life. The Tempo could have been a hit for Ford but when these things came off the lot they experienced issues. This was sad for a company that once prided itself on quality. We have to wonder where things went wrong for the Tempo.
The car offered a couple of options, including leather-appointed seating. But power was limited and the car just couldn’t keep up. Get the Tempo in the wagon version and you were in for something even slower. The Ford Tempo just didn’t stand a chance, and at this time, domestic cars were notorious for bad quality.
