My family owned several of these cars - I remember an '88 'loaded model', which had big cushy red velour seats with a burgundy exterior. After that one died, we ended up with a gray '89 in "L" trim (not like that cushy GL) which forfeited the cushy fabric and power features.
While these cars were far from excellent, they were affordable, simple, easy to fix and held up OK. Were there better cars? Probably, but the Temp has been woven into my childhood and has a fond place in my memory.
