1994 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe


Bought it when it was 5 years old w/88,000 miles on it. Paid $5,500. Didn't have a single repair problem for 4 solid years. Thought it was the dream buy of my life. Then I hit 153,000 miles and had to decide whether to keep regular maintenance up (new tires/shocks/some front suspension work/brakes/battery) and decided to bite the bullet since it was such a great car. Then the floodgates opened. After sinking $2 grand into it and thinking I would be set for another 3-4 years, look out. Be ready to get a new loan when the tranny goes and hope they get it right the first time. New computer, EGR, alternator, water pump all went within the next 5,000 miles. I'm now milking it for all it's worth.

Best Features

Bucket seats, powerful V-8, good Handling, great MPG for a V-8 (21-22 city/27-28 hwy) AC (original unit still working excellent - knock on wood)

Worst Features

Definitely better cup holder placement, better placement of oil filter (if you've ever changed your own oil on this car, you know what I mean).
