A very under estimated car
We part exchanged a Fiat Croma for a L reg.1.6ies Action estate in 1998 and have never looked back.The interior is well set out with everything to hand, the speedo is easily seen and not hidden by the steering wheel, the only fault might be sometimes you can miss the horn when it is really needed in the way it is off set on the steering wheel.It is a spacious car the front has a decieving amount of leg room and so has the back, being a limited edition the upholstery is very smart and not the standard check.We have drove this car on holiday with 3 adults,2 children, 2 medium sized dogs and all the luggage in the car not using a roof box.
We have never had any major repair bills in the 51/2 years we have owned this car, the only time it has not started was due to a bad battery and it has passed the last 4 MOT tests first time now thats reliablity for you.Now reaching 9 years old, with 68,000 on the clock and still looking in mint condition inside and out, handles brilliantly sticking to the roads and responsive power steering, the gear change is smooth and the fuel injection delivery is smooth and the engine is quiet with no excess rattles.Holding a provisional licence I have drove this car and found it better than the driving schools Ford Fiesta.Fuel comsuption is pretty good on long distances (£20 for 218 miles) and you get the best from the car at an average 75mph on motorways, town driving is average to good.
We have just sold the car and bought a Fiat Marea estate and hoping that the Marea is as good as the Tempra, the dealer calls the Tempra a under rated car and it is!For a cheap family estate you can't go far wrong with a Tempra,we would recommend them any day.
