2004 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The 2003 Ford Thunderbird is a joy to drive. The leg room in the driver's seat is quite comfortable even for a person over 6'2. An issue of importance since our last convertible did not have ample leg room. The ride is smooth and quiet. The retro look of the thunderbird makes the car.

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


Review

This card gains its superior ride from the Little Lincoln LS. The frame and drive train are exct Lincoln and that is why it is so good. The extra truck space and leg room come from the fact that the Lincoln LS is a 4 door car. Making a two door convertible from that plaform gave the design engineers lots of latitude. Stupid looking cheap plastic grill is this car's only problem. Too bad Ford didn't fire up more of the LS options like their mileage computer and other "free" features that are already built into the LS wiring harness.


Favorite Features

Comfort of ride but tight control in cornering on country roads. Stereo is great with CD player ... adequatly loud!


Suggested Improvements

Side pipes like the Cobra and Corvette of years past would be a nice touch -- with selectable muffler cutouts. An optional (aftermarket) billet straight bar grill we could change out to get rid of the anemic plastic.Upgrade Headlight plastic!

Review

I have waited 25 years for Ford to return with a two-seater Thunderbird. I've wanted one since I was in high school. This incarnation is a close as anyone could come to the original spirit and design, and still make it a modern car which I believe is fast becoming a collector's item. I enjoy this car immensely and would not trade it for the world. I hope that Ford reconsiders their plans to end production in '05.

Review

Our "toy" was bought on a whim. I, the wife, saw it out in front of the Ford Dealer's lot and fell in love with the beautiful car. I called my husband and told him about it and asked that he call and ask what the price was. When I got home from work, I asked him if he had called. He told me that he had not but that we would go look at it. When he saw it, he bagan to bargain with the dealer and we eventually took it home with us. I was so nervous that I came up with every excuse I could think of to disuade him from his decision to buy it. All of this was to no avail. We now get many, many envious looks from people. Oh, what fun it has been!


Favorite Features

I like the smooth way it handles taking curves with ease. It picks up speed in an instant.


Suggested Improvements

I can only think of one or two things that I wish that it had. One is the combination lock on the doors and the other is electronic seats with the built-in back support.

Review

From the minute I saw it at the SF auto show I knew I wanted one. I put 3K down and waited 8 months and when it was delivered to the dealer the sales mgr called me. He said the whole place was abuzz and I should come see why. As I drove up it was parked on Market Street and there was a crowd. Since that day this turquoise beauty has turned heads. People have come up and asked a zillion questions, some ask me for my card and laugh when they realize I don't sell cars. This thing sells itself. With or without the black hard top it's a delight to the senses.


Favorite Features

Removable hardtop, sound system. Interior design.


Suggested Improvements

Folding exterior mirrors.
