Faults:

When we bought the car, we had less than 1000 miles on it when the transmission went out. Has an automatic temp sensor that controls the heat and air, malfunctions when it rains as it gets wet.

Bad shimmy in front when put on brakes which ruined the tires. Have taken the car in many times for the brakes, as soon as warranty gone, Ford refuses to even look at it again. They have never fixed the sensor so I can use the air conditioner in a heavy rain, doesn't matter how hot it is, all I get is heat when it rains. Only good thing, they fixed the transmission without a problem. Every other T-bird owner and unfortunately, Cougar owner, I have talked to have had the same problems - identical in fact........

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I owned a 1995 t-bird and had the same problems with the brake rotors and the transmission went out twice.

I love to drive this car, but I must use cruise control as it likes to get out and RUN!

I rate the car a 5 out of 10, although the performance and ride is excellent.

I have taken my car to the shop 4 times in 2 years, each and every time the mechanic has a very difficult time finding parts for that engine, the last straw being my water pump broke while I was on the freeway. I drove the car to the next exit, the head gaskets ended up broken, ever since then its been down hill, my car has been in the shop for the past 2 months! And now I need to replace the block!

All I want to do now is to get rid of it, hopefully people are having better experiences with the T-bird than me!!
