2004 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
I am 6'2 and have problems driving the vehicle. I am also a mechanic, and find it very difficult to do the simplest of all chores on this vehicle. I am not a fan of the automatic transmission; I think Ford should have offered a five speed or six speed manual with the vehicle. The car does rattle and have some squeaks, but that's a Ford product for ya. Also the hard top leaks and is difficult to put on. Pros - the car is a head turner. Everywhere I go with it, people look. The seats are indeed comfortable, and the sound system is really nice. As for design, I love the way it emulates the old T-birds. The convertible top is great, and it's easy to operate. The 3.9L V8 runs smoothly.
Styling, convertible top, seats, audio design.
Make sure the top doesn't leak, fix all the rattles and squeaks, car could be a little more solid. Guess it's a little late for improvement though.
