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


Review

I fell in love with the TBIRD the first
time I saw it at the auto show in
Boston. Price was to high at the time
so I thought I would have to wait to
buy a used one. Lucky for me this past
Sept 2003 my dealer was having a
clearance on leftover 2003 models so I
snapped up a new Mountain Shawdow Gray
T-Bird at a very reasonable price. I am
really enjoying this car. It is only
driven on sunny days. I love the look
of the porthole hard top ...but driving
with the top down is so much fun. Power
styling and handling can not be beat.


Best Features

My favorite features are the styling, the Mountain Shadow Gray paint color, the versitility of both a hardtop & a convertible, the interior styling and of course the drop dead beauty of the exterior styling.


Worst Features

Kind of pointless since the last year of production is 2005. I would have liked a larger trunk.Needs a six way power adjustment for the passenger seat.It needs a locking gas door.Trunk lid does not fit very well.

2004 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I had wanted a Thunderbird ever since I
saw the first one in 1955. It took 49
years, but when I saw the Pacific Coast
Highway edition I knew I could wait no
longer. It is not only beautiful, but
also lots of fun to drive. Since there
were only 1000 of these made I can't
remain anonymous in my town!


Best Features

I love the way it looks, the way it handles, and the comfort of driving or riding in it. Yes, I occasionally let my husband drive it!


Worst Features

Other than being able to use Regular gasoline rather than Premium, I can think of no improvements needed.

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


Review

Unless you are willing to fork out big
bucks for a retractable hardtop, this
is the best true "convertible" on the
road, which possesses three excellent
and unique looks, whether in hard top
mode, or with the soft top up or down,
a rareity for a convertible. The
styling is impeccable, as are its
mechanical components. The first
great "Bird" since 1966. Rumor is this
will become the 2007 Lincoln Mark X.


Best Features

The removable hardtop and the sleek retro design. The lines draw you in and captivate. Pay close attention to the eggcrate grill. A flashback to the 1966 TBird which was the only year to have this feature.


Worst Features

Power 6-way passenger seat and power seat back adjustment/lumbar, lighted vanity mirrors, more powerful sound system (for when the top is down) and additional interior storage compartments. Additional interior/exterior color choices and interior leathers would be nice.

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


Review

After several years of looking and poor
buying mistakes, I have finally found a
truely amazing car that fits me
perfectly. Its classic, yet elegant and
sporty enough for most everyone. A
perfect combination of style and
comfort. Just purchased the newest 2004
color addition (Light Ice Blue
Metallic)... absolutely beautiful. Went
in to drive (and buy) the Merlot with
Sand interior and there she was. An
American Icon it is !!! Smooth ride
with plenty of HP when needed. Will
update after a few months.


Best Features

Hardtop/Convertible option all in one. Classic look with updated features. Beautiful lines.


Worst Features

Hardtop convertible that retracts into the trunk eliminating the need for manual removal.
