1997 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe

Review

Nice looking car that is reliable, sporty and affordable. I would highly reccomend this car to others. Has alot of features for the money, and considering it's age has alot of modern virtues (except the underpowerd and un- reliable 3.8 V6)

Favorite Features

Handles like a mustang GT (with the sport package)4.6 SOHC V8. A "mature" version of a mustang. Has good looks, car is very aerodynamic,low insurance rates,great interior styling,rear wheel drive,4 wheel ind.susp.,4 wheel disc brakes, Good exhaust rumble with V8.

Suggested Improvements

Car is too heavy,poor MPG,front bucket seats are too small,the 1997 version has a plain jane "taurus" instrument cluster,plastic intake manifold on V8 is very prone to cracking. V6 3.8 versions are way under powered for such a heavy car and all 3.8 V6 head gaskets will fail.
