1992 Ford Thunderbird LX 3.8 V-6 from North America
Fairly reliable, but wouldn't suggest buying one..
Head gaskets have gone twice.
The exhaust was replaced.
Breaks have been changed 5 times within 5 years.
Front end needs alignment.
Front and rear wind shields have been replaced.
Beginning to rust under both doors and on the front of the hood.
Headlights and tail-lights have been replaced at least once each.
That's it... I think.
This car has cost me a lot of money, especially the head gaskets going.
But there are up-sides to this car, the interior is designed very well. Everything is comfortable and easy to reach. This car is also very responsive with acceleration, handling, and top speed. I've had this car well over 100mph before, and the acceleration is amazing for a Ford with an automatic transmission on it. It feels as if there's a shift kit on it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The head gasket problem was probably not the car's fault, it was probably the dealership or whoever put them on the car. The Thunderbird's had a head gasket problem around 100000 miles, but if you put a good set back on them they are just fine for another 100000 miles. So don't run the cars down just because someone didn't do something right, run their name down not the cars, they are great, I have 3 of them and would love to have 4.

Unless you drive like an idiot, all that shouldn't have happened. I think the operator was the problem. I don't have them problems with my t-bird.
