2003 280 HP Ford Thunderbird
By JimJet on 12/17/05 11:55 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2003 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Car was in 1st 100 280HP 2003 cars. At 20,000 miles stuck caliper and bad throttle body. 30,000 miles bad transmission module which gave sluggish performance from beginning in service date. Interior is quiet with soft or hard top. Have no idea what MPG is. Who cares? Truly a gentleman's sport's car. Local dealer quick to fix all problems under warranty.

This black beauty had been sitting on the lot since Spring 2003. I purchased it with 600 miles on the odometer. I'm the first titled owner.

Great Nostalgic Ride

Review

Car looks super -- very retro looking. It has great performance and good gas mileage -- hits 25 mpg on highway most of the time. Accelerates like a muscle car from the 60's once you get it rolling; the 5 speed automatic really keeps the engine boiling -- sounds good too. The torque of the V-8 makes passing effortless. More of a luxury ride than a sport car ride. A little soft in cornering but very comfortable on trips. Some body shake on bumpy roads. Stereo with 6-disc CD works well, sounds good. In summary, if you like the feel of a V-8 in a car with dramatic styling, you are going to love this car.

2003 bought brand new

Well this is a nice vehicle. I watched the car for a couple of years before purchasing a brand new one. And there is one interesting thing about the vehicle. It has a winter hardtop salon type roof with the opera windows. You store this on a rack/gurney. When we removed the top to go to convertible status in late May, 2004 the paint all around the trunk where the top meets the roof very easily lifted up. Had to repaint. So here's Ford's 21st century fix. They send you a kit with plastic strips. You place it down along the outer reaches of the rear deck and than you place the top back on. Just not engineered well.

007 Special Edition

Review

Compared to my previous Mercedes SLK, this has much more power and style, though the handling is no match for the SLK. It is more a mixture of luxury and performance. The engine is as strong as any muscle car I drove in the 60's, yet gets 17 - 26 mpg. This is a real head turner, and a hit with the ladies. The car looks much better with the porthole hardtop than the soft top, unless it is down! The build quality is excellent, with just 1 minor problem in two years.

Great design and comfortable ride. I wished it was a bit more of a sports car ride, but it is still exciting. Ford did a great job!

Review

After drooling over her for a month at the dealership, I couldn't help but take her home. This is by far the best car I've ever owned. The hardtop / softtop feature allows for variety according to the seasons. It has wonderful power and handling. It is definitely a head-turner.

Review

Everyday I drive this car somebody compliments me. Looks great, rides great. No mechanical problems. Go drive one and you'll buy one. If you want more power add the K&N typhoon intake kit and Borla exhaust and you're over 300HP

Review

the car has guts...and hurls itself around curves..like all fords..has fogging problems in humid or wet weather..no much discernible road noise...could be appointed less austerely..although the retro baby blue gauges and the opera roof with portholes are neat...the car has a problem when removing the hard top...the web sites warn that the paint will come up...and it did on the trunk deck..close to the back window..had to be repainted..has had a brake seal leak inside of 4,000 miles and fixed with new part ..at dealership..

Great car!

Review

Unbelievable a car this small could ride like a Linclon and the JAG engine is awesome, fast, fast, fast, 25MPG overall. Transmission like silk and option to manual shift or auto shift nice. 6K miles and not the first defect of any sort. Trunk small and cockpit only made for two. Had a few nice sports cars in my time and TBird the most fun and get a lot of thumbs up from other motorists. Yup, it's definitely a head turner and we get a lot of compliments.
