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


Review

I traded my 2002 T-Bird, for this more
powerfull 2004 Bird. My Merlot w/Sand
appearance package, is a head turner
everywhere we go. At the annual All
Fords National Show held in PA, with
3000 Fords on display, she brought
home a First Place Trophy. And she has
been invited back for a special
display in 2005. She has been
personalized and is very very
pampered. Kudo's to FORD, for bringing
back the Icon in American Automotives.


Best Features

Metalic Merlot Paint. Removable Hard-Top w/ Portholes Sirius Satelite hookup Homelink


Worst Features

Less plastic Interior

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


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


Review

I have had this green TBird for about a
year now and have enjoyed it a great
deal. There is nothing like riding
home in the evening with the top
down. Makes my whole day. I do it
often.


Best Features

Convertible top. Great styling. Great size.


Worst Features

Could stand an upgrade in the interior with better quality leather and other trim.

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


Review

I love this car!! I've owned many nice
cars but this one is by far the most
fun to drive. Every time I stop at a
light the heads turn. I've owned my T-
Bird for 3 months and I'm just as
excited about driving it now as I was
the day I drove it home. The soft top
is so easy to use. I wanted one of
these cars ever since they were first
introduced but they just didn't seem
very practical. I have never regretted
buy this car and I'm sure I never will.


Best Features

Styling is at the top of my list. The V8 has all the power I will ever need. The transmission shifts so smoothly it's unbelieveable. I love the hardtop with the porthole window.


Worst Features

I wish the hardtop was a little easier to install. I'm surprised the car doesn't have a compass. The trunk needs to be a little larger. Needs storage space for CD's

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


Review

With 1,233 miles on it, we left for a
3700 + mile trip from Whidbey Island,
WA through OR, NV, AZ,CA and return.
Ave. 24+ mpg. Turned heads everywhere.
Beamer & Lexus drivers give it a 2nd
look. Lots of comments. Fun to drive -
good acceleration, stiff suspension &
tight steering. Corners flat and hugs
the road. Quiet inside w/very little
road noise. Came over Donner Pass,
westbound on I 80 in a snowstorm, early
NOV 04. Sipped tires by Les Schwab -
never slipped or broke loose. We pack
the trunk like a suitcase - use small
overnight bags in & out of the motels.
We like it more every time we drive
it.


Best Features

Style & Metallic Ice Blue color, and Handling. White faces on gauges.


Worst Features

Adjustable Lumbar supports in the seats. Power Hard top vs a retractable soft top. If the Chevy SSR can do it, Ford outta be able to do it.
