2002 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Saw ad in newspaper; thought about a T- Bird, but not affordable for me til this one came along. It was garage kept and pampered all the way with low mileage. Rides great and handles beautifully. Rear wheel suspension takes getting used to on wet roads. Turquoise feature color, with black interior. I get all kinds of compliments too whenever I drive it. Glad I made the decision;(my other is a 94 Cavalier RS and still running for more than 2001 miles). Hope I have the Bird for as long a time. This is a great ladies car!


Best Features

Love that it's a two seater. No one likes to ride in the back seat of a convertible anyway. Best, back up sensors and warning message if anyone or thing is behind the car.


Worst Features

I haven't found anything not desirable about the car for improving on yet. I find the trunk large enough for my needs and the bench behind the seats is fairly roomy for me.

2002 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After owning the car for almost 3 years, it is fun to drive for sure, a head turner, but it has it's hand in my back pocket constantly. In the shop almost every 3 k miles for something or other. Electrical problems, look at replacing the battery every year. And now, for a car that's never been raced, Adult owned, a major oil leak at the main seal that would require an engine pull out. This car has 11,000 miles on it. I will live with the leak I guess and just drive the car into the ground. Ultimately disappointed.


Best Features

Styling, fun to drive, head turner


Worst Features

Basic reliability or mine was built on a Friday.

Review

My wife came from a poor family and her dream has always been to own a Tbird. She purchased at long last and after many years of working and saving a 1955 which she drove often but mostly in the Summer and of course being an old car. I mean Old "6 Volt Generator" She decided it was time to buy a car that was more modern. She purchased the 2002 and never looked back. Although the cars are completely different, they are both icons in her life representing old values and new ideas as she likes to say. Of course the new Tbird is wonderful, just check any of the ratings on here!


Best Features

You don't drive this car, you wear it!


Worst Features

More trunk space.

2002 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A real looker. Haved owned for almost 4 years now and it still turns heads. Not one day's problems with it. Love the matching red leather. Kicks it by just tapping on the gas. Miles so low because I do not drive in snow or rain.


Best Features

Inside and out, everything. Love the round headlights and the reflective fing in the tail lights. Love that nowhere on the car does it say Ford. Love all the Thunderbird written everywhere.


Worst Features

More trunk space, cannot stand a box of Capt. Crunch in it.

Review

This car is wonderful. Lots of power, great road feel, comfortable on a trip and a great roadster feel. The only problem I've had is the multi-disc changer and I'm sure that'll be fixed shortly. Ford put a lot of thought in this retro. I think they could have done a little better on the front end design, but it is still a beautiful car and I love to drive it. and even just look at in the garage. It is a member of the family!


Best Features

Easy access trunk release, radio volume controls on the steering column, great road feel, comfortable seats, easy rag top up and down and easy installation of the hard top.


Worst Features

Make the front end look like a modernized '57 instead of a modernized '55 or '56.
