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


Review

I have had this green TBird for about a
year now and have enjoyed it a great
deal. There is nothing like riding
home in the evening with the top
down. Makes my whole day. I do it
often.


Best Features

Convertible top. Great styling. Great size.


Worst Features

Could stand an upgrade in the interior with better quality leather and other trim.

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


Review

I love this car!! I've owned many nice
cars but this one is by far the most
fun to drive. Every time I stop at a
light the heads turn. I've owned my T-
Bird for 3 months and I'm just as
excited about driving it now as I was
the day I drove it home. The soft top
is so easy to use. I wanted one of
these cars ever since they were first
introduced but they just didn't seem
very practical. I have never regretted
buy this car and I'm sure I never will.


Best Features

Styling is at the top of my list. The V8 has all the power I will ever need. The transmission shifts so smoothly it's unbelieveable. I love the hardtop with the porthole window.


Worst Features

I wish the hardtop was a little easier to install. I'm surprised the car doesn't have a compass. The trunk needs to be a little larger. Needs storage space for CD's

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


Review

With 1,233 miles on it, we left for a
3700 + mile trip from Whidbey Island,
WA through OR, NV, AZ,CA and return.
Ave. 24+ mpg. Turned heads everywhere.
Beamer & Lexus drivers give it a 2nd
look. Lots of comments. Fun to drive -
good acceleration, stiff suspension &
tight steering. Corners flat and hugs
the road. Quiet inside w/very little
road noise. Came over Donner Pass,
westbound on I 80 in a snowstorm, early
NOV 04. Sipped tires by Les Schwab -
never slipped or broke loose. We pack
the trunk like a suitcase - use small
overnight bags in & out of the motels.
We like it more every time we drive
it.


Best Features

Style & Metallic Ice Blue color, and Handling. White faces on gauges.


Worst Features

Adjustable Lumbar supports in the seats. Power Hard top vs a retractable soft top. If the Chevy SSR can do it, Ford outta be able to do it.

Review

i love my powder blue t-bird for around
town. it just makes people smile and
give you the thumbs up sign. it is a
little difficult to remove hard top.
once it was off--i kept it off. the
soft top up and down feature does not
measure up to my saab convertible that
self latches and does not need a boot
cover. the t-bird has tons of pick-up
and is good off the line which is
important in LA. i plan on putting few
miles on this car and keeping it for a
long time.


Best Features

i think the design is very cool. you know going into this that this is no costco car for bulk shopping. this car is fun--not a kiddie mobile. like the heated seats and my stainless package and color insert seats. dash etc. is not so confusing. what you see is what you get. love it.


Worst Features

the soft top should self latch--it is too difficult right now. you really need two people--one on top outside to smash top down and someone inside to make latches work and seal top. ford should check out saab.

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


Review

This car is is the best in all ways of
any I've ever owned. VERY
comfortable. Does not hurt my bad back
even after 8-10 hours of driving. It
handles better than expensive, foreign
sports cars that I've driven. Extremely
responsive and fun to drive.
Independent Short and Long Arm front
and rear suspension. Does not drive
like a Ford at all. Plenty of pick up
and speed. No hesitation at all.
Braking system is excellent. Four wheel
traction control, anti-lock disc
brakes. Plenty of storage space for a
small car. Convertible top goes up and
down VERY easily. Removable hard top
great for the winter.
I can't say enough good things about
this car.


Best Features

Everything about this car !!


Worst Features

no improvements needed
