Previous carDodge Daytona

Summary:

Thunderbird LX one of the finest luxurious performance vehicles in one package

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with my Thunderbird, but everything went wrong with my Daytona.

General Comments:

I have come to realize that my Ford has been far more dependable than my Dodge. I haven't had a single problem with my Thunderbird, it hasn't had any unplanned visits to the mechanic. Where as my Daytona never got out of the mechanics hands. I spent far more money on the Daytona than I could spend on performance parts for my loyal Thunderbird.

The car has plenty of power and rides at very low RPM's - if you go at 70 it is running at 1900 RPM's, if you go 100 it is at 2750 RPM's so that is easy on the engine,
