Ford let 2002 owners down
By Dot on
2002 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
I have owned this car since 2002. I had to replace all 8 coils. It has a design flaw. Ford recongnized this and recalled the 2003,2004 and 2005. Same problem, but decided not to do the right thing for us. I also had to replace the cooling fan 2x @ $900 @ pop A/C the condenser @ $1400 and the catalytic converter for close to $1000. The trim is chrome plated plastic, which is peeling now. It is a sharp looking car, but for a maintained car with 70,000 miles, I have put too much into repair costs. I will never by another Ford (and acronym for Fix Or Repair Daily)
Sharp-looking, great pick-up
Ford- stand behind your product AND if you recall a problem for some years, do it for all the years with the same problem. Would be nice if you used trim that doesn't peel.
