I purchased my 95 T-Bird new and have put almost 300,000 miles on it. It is the 4.6 V8. I just put a Ford rebuilt engine and tranny in it as it was burning too much oil after all those miles. It still ran great, however. I have not had any unusual problems with it other than normal maintenance. It still has the original rotors after 3 sets of pads on the front. Top speed is 105 mph as the governor shuts it off at that speed. It goes back on as soon as it gest under 100. I am now in the process of getting the body redone due to the clearcoat coming off. I have nothing but nice to say about this vehicle. I do agree with other reviews regarding the cup holder. Not good planning on Ford's part.
V8 engine, independent suspension, design and ride.
I love my bird, I bought it off my dad and he's had it since it was new. We scored the rare factory Venetian Blue Pearl color so it changes from purple to blue in the sun light. People stop and stare at her she's so pretty! Very fast, she can get up to 100 mph without trying. This car likes to fly, speeding tickets may be an issue.
Love the handling and ease of accelerating. Lots of room and comfortable. Auto climate control is a great feature, and the power moon roof is great in summer. Handles great in all weather including snow.
Cup holder does suck, bad location. It's easy to elbow your drinks while driving. If your very tall you may need to keep your head down, it's a low car built for speed!
This car is COMPLETE JUNK.
Do not buy one... Quality is awful, layout is very poorly planned as far as the engine bay goes.
Engine vibrates, transmission is complete junk.
Window trim is complete garbage.
This car is a complete
nightmare to drive and work on.
I stole this car at $850, charged the a/c and put in an upgardede soundsystem, it goes like a rocket..has a few small rust issue, but that is ohio.. The car runs like a scalded rabbit, tranny shift strong and tight. I think the last owner put a shift kit in it,, Cupholders are NOt very convenient..
Full Gauge package. I think later years they put a few dummy lights in it for oil press and Volts. Comfort of the seating areas. Quietness of the V8 except slight sweet exhaust note from the factory duals
better factory stereo, sounds horrible.. and cupholders are obnoxious
Okay so my dad has owned a 87 v6 model, a 91 v6 cougar, and then obviously the 95 v8 thunderbird.
He bought it for 1500 dollars with just over 100,000 miles on it and The car rolled over 150,000 miles the day i got my license and ever since that day i have loved this car with a passion.
Sure its had to have a couple parts replaced but thats just general maintenance.
Its literally the best of both worlds you get a powerful 4.6 which you wouldnt think is that fast but i beat an Audi A6 with no trouble at all, and i kept up with an 93 prelude si and the only reason i lost was because i lost traction.
put glasspacks andCats are broken up so im putting on Magnaflows very soon.
RWD is nice for burnouts and drifting, also very very comfey ride.
Lots of room.
has 170,000 and just started to rust.
good on gas (21 if you dont floor it constantly, 18 if you do)
cup holders in the center console is kinda dumb, Limited slip is nice for corners but sucks in the winter.
