I love my 1997 Thunderbird. Since I've
brought my baby, I've had many offers
from people wanting to buy it from me.
My car and I have been through a
divorce, a move to a different city and
my baby have not stop for one moment.
I love my car!!!
My favorite features: The style...I
love the body...It truly is has all the
luxury a woman represents...
The 97 Thunderbird is one of the
greatest cars ever to hit the
streets. I bought mine at a nearby
dealership just last week at 154,000
miles. There was absoulutly nothing
wrong with it. It is still strong and
the V8 gives lots of power and even
better performance. I wish that Ford
would continue to make them. Retro
can stay in the past!! I highly
reccomend the Ford Thunderbird to
anyone who wants a decent, reliable,
and fun-to-drive car.
V8 Power, Comfortable Bucket Seats,
The look and feel. and of course the
Its kind of pointless now, but too bad
they werent lighter
I bought this car impulsively in 1997,
but it turned out to be the best car
I've ever had. This has been a
pleasant surprise, given the problems
some Fords have had. The only problem
in seven years has been the need to
replace a radiator hose twice.
Otherwise, the only expense consists
of my usual trips to SuperLube. I get
good gas mileage and performance from
the V6.. Everytime I get the urge to
consider getting a new car, I just go
for a ride in the TBird, and realize
that I already have what I want.
The Reliability and the look.
They should never have converted it to
an upscale niche model.
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)
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.
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
