2003 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Compared to my previous Mercedes SLK, this has much more power and style, though the handling is no match for the SLK. It is more a mixture of luxury and performance. The engine is as strong as any muscle car I drove in the 60's, yet gets 17 - 26 mpg. This is a real head turner, and a hit with the ladies. The car looks much better with the porthole hardtop than the soft top, unless it is down! The build quality is excellent, with just 1 minor problem in two years.

Best Features

The coral paint with offsetting white top and white leather interior really make this a looker. Only 700 James Bond editions were built, making this an instant classic.

Worst Features

Home-Link door opener and auto-dimming rear view mirror. Space is a bit tight if you are over 6 feet tall. The 6 CD in dash sound system could use a better sub-woofer...sounds great, but not outstanding given the price of the vehicle. Power retractable hardtop would have completed the deal.
