1996 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe


I LOVE THIS CAR. This is my second Tbird ... the first one was dark green and loaded. This one isn't loaded but comfort and power (v8) blows away most of my friends' cars. Bought it as a used car 5 years ago (it's a '96) and while reliability has been fantastic, it's time to start thinking of trading my baby in. My check engine light has been on for 4 years. Funny - must be a design/electrical flaw. Also rolled my green one during an ice storm in MI (won't miss the real wheel drive in winter). Ah, fond memories. I think I cried when the last one rolled off the assembly line a few years ago. Now what am I supposed to do? :)

Best Features

6-way power driver seat The "pod" driver-side interior styling. Low, sleek, 'cigarette' body design; very chic.

Worst Features

"Check Engine" light issue (lots of people have this problem it seems. Some engine 'knock'/sluggishness during acceleration (not always). Not sure how to describe. When it rains and you have the window cracked open, the rain pours directly into the car. Seems like they could have avoided this in design
