1997 Ford Thunderbird LX 4.6 OHC V8 from North America
Inexpensive yet pretty well designed
Not much has gone wrong with this car at all... Brakes were replaced recently, I pulled wheels and noticed that LH front brake pads wore much quicker than RH front brake pads...
When I first sat in this car the feeling was very nice. Nice cockpit feel and cloth seats are VERY cushiony and comfortable. When going from park to Drive, it takes a second for the transmission to lock into gear. This car is very responsive and handles well. Enough power to pass not enough to impress. Even with the V8 the car is very well muffled and extremely quiet during both city and freeway driving. My biggest fear with purchasing a ford is thier history of sub-par faulty transmissions. However; this one performs pretty well and shifts smoothly (knock on wood)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
