2005 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I fell in love with this car when it first came out in 2002, but couldn't afford it. Things changed and once I was able to, I bought a 50th anniversary edition. I told the dealer I didn't even need to test drive it, I knew I wanted it. I find all sorts of excuses to take it out for a drive, and love the second looks and "Thumbs Ups" I get from other motorists.


Favorite Features

Two tops, love the retro port hole opera windows on the hard top. Power and handling are appropriate for the luxury/sport vehicle. Styling is an eye-catching winner. Radio controls on the steering wheel are handy.


Suggested Improvements

Well, this is a moot topic since the car has been discontinued.

2005 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I was going to buy a Z4 but saw a Bird at the Auto show. Once I drove one it was no comparison. The ride is exceptional and the styling is top of the line. Many, many comments from people who see the car. Outstanding cruiser!


Favorite Features

Style, ride comfort, audio system, ease of convertible top.


Suggested Improvements

Interior quality could be improved. Replace plastic front grill.

2005 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I enjoy my tbird,but I have a few problems I didn't have looked into.When i go over a bump the car pulls to the right.The other problems are rattles behind the driver,I don't know if its the hardtop rattling,or if its the convertible top.


Favorite Features

My favorite features are when you step on the gas pedal,the car really moves good.The other feature is the sound system,with the in dash 6 cd player. The styling is very nice with the retro look.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage,and better entry into the car.

2005 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My Thunderbird is small for comfort in long trips (over two hours!). No space behind front seats, no trunk room. Bad design for rain. Drips inside if window is slightly open. Blind spot both sides. Cheaply done interior. Car has zip, is reliable, but would not purchase another one.


Favorite Features

White shift knob.


Suggested Improvements

Add more quality to the vehicle.
