2005 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
I have test driven many, many convertibles, but when I test drove the T-Bird I was sold. The fit was perfect, the interior retro; the overall styling is a wonderful combination between yesteryear and now. The performance -- unbeatable! A V8 with so much power, you barely need to step on the accelerator. The most fun I've ever had driving. It appeals to young and old alike. I did have one minor issue with the check engine light. I took the car into the dealership but the problem disappeared; they plugged in a mini computer under the dash so when the problem reoccurred, I pressed a button, it recorded the error and they were then able to correct the problem. No problems ever since.
The car is so responsive, I never need to worry about merging on the freeway or passing cars. Also, it's such a cool looking car, the valet always parks it up front!
