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


Review

This Lemon breaks down about every 1,000 miles or so. Had it towed in twice this month--one time on the way back home from the dealership from its last repair. Frequent failures apparently due to the electrical system, factory installed stereo not wired in correctly, coils have failed twice, not what we expected for a "high- end" car.


Best Features

If quality is Job #1, Ford Fails.


Worst Features

Add quality control to the system.

Review

The only weak link in this vehicle is the transmission. Some of the cars need to have the pcm reflashed in order to achieve smooth shifting.


Best Features

Ease of raising and lowering the convertible top.


Worst Features

Hardtops should have been provided with all models.

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


Review

This car is is the best in all ways of any I've ever owned. VERY comfortable. Does not hurt my bad back even after 8-10 hours of driving. It handles better than expensive, foreign sports cars that I've driven. Extremely responsive and fun to drive. Independent Short and Long Arm front and rear suspension. Does not drive like a Ford at all. Plenty of pick up and speed. No hesitation at all. Braking system is excellent. Four wheel traction control, anti-lock disc brakes. Plenty of storage space for a small car. Convertible top goes up and down VERY easily. Removable hard top great for the winter. I can't say enough good things about this car.


Best Features

Everything about this car !!


Worst Features

no improvements needed

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


Review

I had wanted a Thunderbird ever since I saw the first one in 1955. It took 49 years, but when I saw the Pacific Coast Highway edition I knew I could wait no longer. It is not only beautiful, but also lots of fun to drive. Since there were only 1000 of these made I can't remain anonymous in my town!


Best Features

I love the way it looks, the way it handles, and the comfort of driving or riding in it. Yes, I occasionally let my husband drive it!


Worst Features

Other than being able to use Regular gasoline rather than Premium, I can think of no improvements needed.
