1992 Ford Thunderbird 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought the car 2nd hand at a used car lot in Pa.($5,000} Made it safe to drive ($2500) and redid all the suspension ($1700). now its all restored it runs great and slightly oversize tires give it a mean look. Its a roomy midsize with the 3.8 v8 gives me 25mpg on the hwy. I work on it as it needs it. I Love My T-Bird.


Favorite Features

Roomy, 25mpg in an midside car for a 6 foot, 260lb. guy


Suggested Improvements

Have enough $$ to keep it running. Im still looking for the cup holders... LOL

Review

Because I was a Bill Elliott fan, all I wanted was a bright red Thunderbird. When I saw this car, it was love at first sight. I am still driving it after 16 years. It still is a great handling car. My T-Bird still looks great and gets good gas mileage. Ford would recover faster if it starting building cars like this again.


Favorite Features

Moon roof. Soft, comfortable seats.


Suggested Improvements

None!

Review

I bought this car in 2002 and have had minor problems. I've replaced the alternator, brake pads/shoes, battery, and tires. The rear axle has a slight leak. The car needs antifreeze filled every few months. I want to install new headlights because mine are very yellow. Also changed transmission fluid last summer. All warning lights work!


Favorite Features

A perfect combination of luxury and sport.


Suggested Improvements

Remove automatic seatbelts, and one cupholder would be nice!

Review

I drove it for 1.5 years. Now it is dead. - transmission ($1000?) - antifreeze gets into engine and exhaust($1000?) - catalytic converter broke and makes an awful noise (buzz), ($260?) - starter was replaced ($90) - alternator was replaced ($300?) - battery was replaced - blinker lights are burnt. - interior: ceiling is decomposing and dropping something black onto seats, door handle has come off, power windows don't open, cracks on the dash board from the sun, all plastic parts are barely hanging, glove compartment is not closing or locking anymore. -exterior: paint came off on the roof. I am amazed. The car seemed to be so good when I bought it. :(


Favorite Features

Acceleration and weight.


Suggested Improvements

Well, take it, melt it, and learn how to make decent cars from Germans or Japanese.

Review

I purchased my 1992 Ford Thunderbird in 1994 and I am still driving it today. Aside from the regular maintenance on the car, I have only had brake work done once and a starter put in. I have never been stranded any where because something went wrong. This car has been a god send!!!


Favorite Features

Great looking vehicle and the body holds up well - hardly any rust.


Suggested Improvements

Not too fond of rear wheel drive!
