"I bought my 1993 t-bird 10 months ago. In the first 6 months of having it, EVEN WITH 60,000 MILES, i put nearly $3000 in it already with such repairs as: a blown head gasket, new alternator, new ignition which fried my original alternator and drained my 3 month old battery, new sway bar and other routine repairs such as tires, oil changes, spark plug wires, etc. And on top of all of that, the electrical system will randomly reset itself sometimes when i start my car, clearing away all preset stations on the radio, clock, and it will have anything that runs on electricity(windows, locks, head lights etc.) not work for a few minutes. I have not had a repair in a while but I think about the only thing else that could go wrong would be the transmission which i hope holds out. I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone based on my experience with it. And my vehicle is in excellent physical condition and has less than 64,000 miles."
"I have driven this car for eleven years (bought new). It GOES when called upon! With 137K miles on it, it's still "tight." Even the small mechanical and electrical items are still in excellent condition (where things break on other cars). Ford really got this T-bird right - too bad they don't make them anymore. I'm hangin on to mine!
The ONLY drawback is lack of comfortable cup holders. Everything else is perfect!"
"Best car i ever had.Lasted longer than my x-wife. Ahead of its time for Ford.More options than some new cars today.Small v8 will get 23 mpg(better than a lot of v6's today). Daughter wants the car but don't have time or money now"
Pros: "Comfort, fun to drive, great styling looks."
Cons: "Light rear end means low snow traction."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"When you travel in this car, all the controls are where you expect them to be. I have driven this car all over the country usually averaging about 27 MPG. With regular maintenance, this car has gone 295,000 miles and is still ready to go some more. Great accelaration with the 4.6L V8 and very smooth ride at highway speeds. Multi-direction power seats adjust to the smallest changes, great A/C (in Florida), overall great looks, fun to drive. Poor handling in snowy or icy conditions because it is too light in the rear to keep traction. After seventeen years, it is starting to show some rust and the paint is starting to flake. Great value for a car that lasts this long!"
