2004 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Unless you are willing to fork out big bucks for a retractable hardtop, this is the best true "convertible" on the road, which possesses three excellent and unique looks, whether in hard top mode, or with the soft top up or down, a rareity for a convertible. The styling is impeccable, as are its mechanical components. The first great "Bird" since 1966. Rumor is this will become the 2007 Lincoln Mark X.


Favorite Features

The removable hardtop and the sleek retro design. The lines draw you in and captivate. Pay close attention to the eggcrate grill. A flashback to the 1966 TBird which was the only year to have this feature.


Suggested Improvements

Power 6-way passenger seat and power seat back adjustment/lumbar, lighted vanity mirrors, more powerful sound system (for when the top is down) and additional interior storage compartments. Additional interior/exterior color choices and interior leathers would be nice.

2004 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After several years of looking and poor buying mistakes, I have finally found a truely amazing car that fits me perfectly. Its classic, yet elegant and sporty enough for most everyone. A perfect combination of style and comfort. Just purchased the newest 2004 color addition (Light Ice Blue Metallic)... absolutely beautiful. Went in to drive (and buy) the Merlot with Sand interior and there she was. An American Icon it is !!! Smooth ride with plenty of HP when needed. Will update after a few months.


Favorite Features

Hardtop/Convertible option all in one. Classic look with updated features. Beautiful lines.


Suggested Improvements

Hardtop convertible that retracts into the trunk eliminating the need for manual removal.

2004 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I enjoy driving this car. It's fun. Even after 2 years, people still talk to me about it and stare at it. Could be the yellow color is so happy, it's irresistible.


Favorite Features

The look with the hardtop on is my favorite feature. I never take the hardtop off and never will. It's just a cute car and fun to drive. Also the bumblebee interior is neat too. I have the yellow/black interior.


Suggested Improvements

I think the steering wheel has too much play but it's not a big deal. The car travels best at 80. Perfect speed. Has lots of power too in pinches.
