2004 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
Recieved the car as a gift and was
thrilled, at first. The car began to
leave me stranded...engine would not
turn over. Local dealership service
dept. has tried everything but can find
no answer to the problem. Car has now
been in the service dept. for 11 weeks
and still no answer to the problem. I
absolutely love the car, but I do not
love being stranded waiting for a
Vintage look, body style, smooth ride.
Enjoyable to drive.
I was given my 2004 Thunderbird convertible/removeable hard-top for Mothers Day. I was Thrilled. It was great In the summer when weather is warm. It is winter now and I keep it garaged. It is never left outside. The car won't start at all. I took it to Ford to find out what the problem was. I was told that there is nothing wrong with the car and that I need to get a battery booster. I have a 10 year old van that is left out all the time and starts every time. Something is draining the battery but Ford won't admit it. It is in the shop again. I guess I'll see what excuse they come up with this time.
I love the car but it would be nice if I could drive it.
