My First Car And A Maintenance Nightmare
By Andreas on


1993 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe


I loved this car when I purchased it at 17 years old with 80K miles in 2001. The car was loaded and looked beautiful. It was a V-6 and a bit underpowered. I have had nothing but problems after the first week. First, was O2 sensors (about $200). Then the suspension needed repair ($1500). Then the multifunction switch died (the car could not switch the high beams off...about $300 to fix...I just disconnected them). Transmission was beginning to slip. I took a friend to the airport about 100 miles away and guess what, the engine went. I actually managed to get the car towed, and got a little value for trade in. I babied that car and it gave nothing but problems. The car died at 96k miles.

Best Features

The car looked very nice (maroon color). The interior was great. Leather seats, moon roof, I upgraded the sound system and it sounded great.

Worst Features

Reliability...maybe my car was a lemon.
