Well, to be quite honest I would steer very clear of the AWD model. It is put together quite badly with problems from the universal joints at the rear... very problematic.
THe 4-cylinder cars are very bullet proof. I've had mine for over 130,000 miles and it is still goign strong. The automatics can be a bit of trouble, depending on how well it was maintained and how hard it was driven.
The V6 is a very sweet engine. My next car will be a 92 GLS V6 with a 5-speed... the second Tempo/Topaz to be mine. =)
