Performance of this vehicle is
excellent while returning 16 mpg/city
and 26 mpg/hwy. Good acceleration for
a V6. Comfortable and quiet highway

I bought my Thunderbird used 4 years
ago. It has been a great car and has
only left me stranded once when the
manifold cracked and I lost coolant.
There was a TSB on that problem and
Ford fixed it free of charge ( an $800
repair )It is fun to drive and has
plenty of power. The 4.6 V8 is quite
economical and there is a feeling of
safety with this vehicle.
The engine, overall design, curb appeal.
Cup holder is lame. Trunk design allows
items to slide and roll around.
Bought my car when I turned 16 with a
fistfull of 100's I had saved up with
85,000 miles on the clock. NEVER

is reached very quickly. My friends
simply call it the GT with a backseat
because of the fantastic performance
and incredible luxury for the price.
Leather! V8 power along with the bad
boy rumble some exhaust work will do.
Lots of space even for my 6'4" frame.
Incredibley reliable. I drive the car

darn useless cupholders. Driving with
a Slurpee in your lap gets old. Also
the oil filter is very hard to get to.
Bought it new, right out of college.
Love the ride and acceleration of v-8.
Comfy interior and nice looks, inside
and out. Had intake manifold replaced
under recall after failure and
transmission reconditioned under
warranty- no other unscheduled
failures. Have 4 studded snows on
factory rims- unstoppable in the snow
with a judicious accelerator foot!
Exepecting 1st baby and finding hard to
replace with "family" car of equal
price and performance.
V-8 power, highway ride, spacious
Small trunk, CD player skips (3rd
replacement ford radio), even with
