Fair reliability. Great looking car. Looks like it's ready to pounce on something.
Cruise control didn't work when I bought it. (2000)
Snapped a fan belt.
Tends to overheat quickly on hot summer days.
Headliner inside has come almost completely loose. I had to pin the cloth to the roof with a bunch of push pins.
My '82 Thunderbird has a lot of power and is very quick.
It has a very comfortable interior.
The black enamel paint is near-flawless to this day. No chipping or peeling. The body has no rust.
Very roomy interior. Lots of legroom. The car also has a huge trunk.
The vinyl top has very little cracking... still in great shape.
Car handles a little loosely.
The big V-8 engine tends to overheat, regardless of any repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
