had a while travelled from canada to
Fl,rear wheel drive in snow in this car
is sweaty palms stuff.At @75k had to
replace almost everything but the
steering wheel,but I still like the
car,and lets be fair, most domestics
fair the same.
Great long distance highway cruiser.
brakes suck,go for 94 or later,thse
have abs and reg seat belts, not the
mad mouse on my 93.lights are VERY
I have a '93 T-Bird LX (was there any
other trim level?) with a 5.0 V-8.
This engine is unbelievable. The car
now has over 380K miles on the
original engine. Have only done oil,
filters, plugs, wires and the engine
is as strong as ever. Doesn't like
anything less than 91 Octane..
unfortunately. I have replaced brake
pads probably every 30K and rotors
every 60K. Rear brakes have faired
better. Replaced the transmission (at
120k) and rear main seal (at 250K).
Has always had electrical system
gremlins. The interior is falling
apart and the body is showing signs of
10 NE winters. This engine is
Power and Handling are superb.
While I haven't driven a new bird, I
wish they still made these.
I bought my T-Bird from a friend who
really screwed me on this car. It
needed new ball joints and control arms
in the front end($700)Then the brakes
totally went out, complete brake job
($500)needs an alternator and new tie
rods another $4-500. This is a good car
if you have the money to fix it when
something goes wrong with no warning.
It is also sporty and reliable. Fords
are really an expensive car to own they
have transmission problems as well as
the starters. Mine
has 127,000 miles but I've had it less
than 6 months and just look at
everything thats been fixed already.
Just be picky when buying a ford and
you'll be better off buying from a
I like the automatic climate control,
rear-wheel drive, heats up fast, power
everything, all conntrols are in easy
Could get better gas mileage, spoilers
should be standard, better sound system
I bought this car only because it was
cheap and I needed a transport. Having
owned a few muscle cars, I didn't
expect much. I was wrong. The 5.0 had
more power than I expected and I've had
a lot of fun driving. It's a great mix
of power and luxury.
Most comfortable sport car I've been in.
Make the intake gasket a little easier
to replace, open up the exaust a bit
and a turbocharger or two wouldn't hurt.
