1993 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe
Review
Bought car in Georgia with 60,000 miles. No lemon law! Had BAD shake, alignment made it disappear long enough for me to take it home. Head gaskets were blown, front end squeaks, car and steering wheel shake over 40 mph. Head lights randomly shut off. Fixed headlight switch 5 times. Put $700 into gaskets, $1200+ into suspension plus new rims to fix shake (finally!). AC compressor broke, new fan belt even squeals, oil leak, transmission leak, radiator leak, bad temperature gauge at 80,000 miles, rear end has developed kick and transmission hesitates badly in cold weather, passenger window & seat belt broke, weatherstripping rotting, fog lights dead, doors rattle. I put over $3,000 into it within 2 years, now it needs more work. Very comfy & roomy.
Favorite Features
COMFY! 5 people on long road trip many times. Wouldn't put the money in it if I didnt love it. Fully adjustable drivers seat, climate control, jointed rear suspension makes the car float over bumps (after spending all that money it better!). Not best mileage, but not bad for work/school commute. Overdrive, power steering.
Suggested Improvements
Like all Fords, is very high maintenance. A great car to fix up and spend time and money. Not the best for a student with low funds. Electric is dying, gauges have gone, suspension hairy and pricy, but very nice when working, Fan belt whine is common, Steering wheel designed 4 tall people, all fluids leak.
