1995 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe

Review

though this is a great looking car with power, there was a major design flaw in the engine coolant system which eventually caused a blown motor.Ford should have come out with a recall on this model. The first time I had any indication this could be a problem it was too late, the engine had already been destroyed. Apparently there is only 1 small gasket that seperates the coolant from the oil pan. This seal broke, the coolant poured into the oil pan, the car overheated and the head cracked all in the matter of 3 minutes of highway driving.

Favorite Features

very roomy front seat and the exterior design

Suggested Improvements

A Thunderbird should only be bought after Ford redoes the coolant system.
