Review

I love this little car. My wife thinks
it's great too. I owned sevin of the
early models years back, I think I like
this one best of all.


Worst Features

The interior could be a little richer and the owners manual is cheap.

2004 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review



























We bought this wonderful car because we
couldn't make a deal with the 350Z at
the local Nissan dealer....and glad now
we couldn't. I have owned many BMWs
and still have a Mercedes....this
American car is tops....and we will
probably buy American for the Mercedes
replacement. Nobody makes a better V8
than Ford.










Best Features

The looks, size, quality and relative exclusivity.....you don't see them everywhere.....feels like an SL at half the price....and looks sharper.


Worst Features

The sand color top is IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean.

Review

I love my 'bird! (So does my wife.) I
have a Pacific Coast Roadster that is
out of this world. She now has over
600 miles in 1 week, all from just
cruising around. I have never heard of
a car that gets as many comments as
my 'bird - everyone loves this car!
Like driving a classic with the safety,
reliability, & features of new. The PCR
is the '04 limited edition model and
the only 'bird you can get with a light
dash instead of black, which was a big
factor in our decision. Only 1000 made,
so not too common. Color very classy.
Gas mileage good for a V8. Get both
tops: ragtop-only costs double(!) to
insure. You WILL be seen in this car!


Best Features

Looks! Handling! Comments! 2-seater! Coolness factor! Uncommon! Heated seats! Wonderful handling - turns very flat and predictable. Tiny turning radius - the 'bird will do a u-turn in 2½ lanes. Soaks up big bumps. Can talk in a normal voice (not yell) with the top down.


Worst Features

Harsh on the little bumps, but I suspect the tires are over inflated, apparently a common problem. Acceleration is quick, but not what I expect for 280 ponies. Check build quality - we rejected the first PCR we saw. Soft top's tight. Allow regular gas.
