Great Nostalgic Ride
By Darryl on

Vehicle

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

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.

Favorite Features

Great looks, really draws attention. Don't buy one if you are trying to be incognito. Fun to drive. Powerful engine. Hardtop fits well and looks good. Lots of custom parts available to personalize the car.

Suggested Improvements

More headroom. Re-engineer the hardtop mounting so it does not mar the paint -- the stick on plastic paint protection strips are a ugly and cheap solution. Make suspension firmer. Needs auto dimming rear view mirror. Base price is too high. Make sure you get a good deal, then enjoy yourself!
