Bought my V8 tbird new in 94. After
135,000 miles only things ever to go
wrong were water pump and alternator.
Some little pieces of interior trim
broke but nothing major. Transmission
used to make the typical annoying
shutter from the torque converter but
was a simple fix 3 years ago with
synthetic trans fluid. Only major
complaint is faiding of paint on roof.
It should last longer than 8 years.
