2002 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Got rid of an XJ8VDP for this car. I own a '96 Red XJS that is supposed to be my summer fun car - BUT - This car gets more looks, comments and thumbs up than the Jaguar (mine is Yellow with the two-tone yellow black interior). SHARP. Best surprise was power and performance - way better than I expected and cheap to maintain. Plus now that they are going bye-bye it'll be even a rarer sight. Not a practical car as far as 2 seater, shallow trunk.


Best Features

Styling, head turning, retro details, hardtop/convertible, power, affordability. Insurance is reasonable - cars safety, injury and theft ratings are untouched in its class - ask your agent to look them up!


Worst Features

Heated seats, navigation, better factory ait-starter option (this is a one button start and stop - the Astro start is better but not covered by warranty). Extended warranty is over-priced. Roof seals are marginal.

2002 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Neiman Marcus Edition 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My 2002 Red Ford T-Bird (hard top and convertible) is the most wonderful car I have ever owned. It is fun to drive and I just love the fact that after 2 and1/2 years, people still stop and comment on what a gorgeous car it is and how wonderful it is that Ford brought the car back. I always wanted the 1955 T-bird, but could not afford it, and when I finally could, my husband objected to buying such an old car. As soon as he saw the 2002 T-Bird he bought it for me and gave it to me as a surprise. The car looks good, drives like a dream and is fun to be in and be seen in.Thank you for bringing it back.


Best Features

The style, the color, the fact that it is a hard top and convertible, the overall look of the car. It is just a great car to drive and to be in.


Worst Features

Since Ford has discontinued it, there are can be no improvements.

Review

This is my 6th T-Bird and my best so far. I've owned an '84, '87, '89, '90, 95, and 2002. This Bird is a dream to drive and to look at. I think others feel the same way. We get looks from other drivers every time we are on the road. For me, this car is going to be a keeper forever. It is a comfort to drive on long trips and not bad on gas either. The handling is good; it's not a sports car but a very nice driver. It looks it's best with the hard top on but it's the most fun to drive with the soft top down on a warm summers day. There are better performing cars on the road but none have the classy look of this Thunderbird. I always wanted a '57 but this one fits the bill for me. It's just One Great Car


Best Features

The hard top/soft top combo, little wind noise with soft top down, the full color interior only found on the 2002 model, Thunderbird Blue, radio and 6 CD player and the FUN FACTOR, just how can you rate this.


Worst Features

Maybe another 50 or so HP but that's about it.

Review

I've wanted a T0-Bird since I was a
child and the T-Bird was new -- finally
got it! I'm not disappointed in the
least -- talk about the looks! As
another reviewer said, be prepared for
total strangers to ask all sorts of
questions. I've even been stopped by a
couple of cops just so they could get a
better look at it.


Best Features

Styling and I LOVE the Thunderbird Blue, especially the hot turquoise interior.


Worst Features

More head room.
