Vehicle

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

Review

The charm and joy of driving is great. The quirks heating (SaunaBird) of the interior when idling is awful, transmission still slams into Drive, clock (third) still runs slow, rattling top, electronic bugs, lack of amenities (like a stripped Lincoln LS), etc. For the price this is a slapped together car. Too bad. Many trips to dealer did not work out the problems. Ford didn't help. Ford made this car an orphan and dropped it at the orphanage. Bill Ford should be ashamed.

Favorite Features

Style, fun to drive, great highway cruiser, very comfortable cruiser. Even a useable trunk.

Suggested Improvements

Stop the engine heating of the interior at idle. Make the top fit and attach better. Get a $1.00 clock, it would be better than what is supplied. Equip it like the LS it's based on.
