My mom gave me this car my senior year of high school in 2002. It had about 75,000 miles at the time. The only thing that she had to fix was the tranmission right before she gave it to me, which was covered by warranty, and its still driving with that transmission now. The car has been very good to me over the last five years with out any major issues other than what I mentioned at the top which was not a huge deal. As you can see I have driven lots of miles since I had it. I am 22 years old now and it drives and feels very good like it always has. I do maintain it well with oil changes every 3000 miles or less, and all the other nessessary things that should be done. The silver Paint job is still good as well as the leather interior. The V8 engine is very powerful and still sounds great. This is the best car ever and I will never get rid of it. I also have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES that I got in 2004 with about 105,000 miles and although it is a great car, it had more problems then the T- bird ever had over the years. I truly love my T-Bird and is the best car to have.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
