1997 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe


Review

This car is great! Handles perfectly around curves at 60mph. It has a less than sporty feel, but you don't lose a lot.


Best Features

The style, the drive, the gas mileage and the overall character of the vehicle.


Worst Features

I would improve the side mirrors they are a little small.

Review

Very comfortable, reliable transportation. Good body integrity. Any problems have been related to normal wear and tear. Spacious trunk.


Best Features

Style and size.


Worst Features

Spacious trunk would have been made even better if back seats folded down to accommodate larger/longer cargo.

Review

I bought this used with 10,000 miles on it. It now has 205,000 and still rides and performs like it did the day I bought it. Other than replacing the manifold, radiator, and torque converter, all I've done to it is change the oil and replace the plugs and wires. Great car!


Best Features

Roominess and styling.


Worst Features

Get away from the plastic manifolds and radiators.

Review

I an the only owner of this car and it has been a total gem for me. I have only had to do the expected maintenance on it in addition to replacing the radiator and exhaust manifold at about 75,000 miles. I recently replaced the serpentine belt and alternator. I use only premium fuel and have gotten from 21 to 26 mpg. I feel that my car is a classic and worth a lot more than what the book might say.


Best Features

I have really enjoyed the premium sound and CD player. Also the 12 way power drivers seat has made driving very comfortable.

Review

I drove this car for seven years without a single problem. I wish they still built this car. I would buy another one in a heartbeat. It has 154,000 miles on it and still rides, drives excellent.


Best Features

Ride quality.


Worst Features

Start building them again.
