1997 Ford Thunderbird Sport 4.6L from North America
With modifications, Mustang GT performance in a luxury car
Intake manifold cracked at 33,000 miles. Replaced under dealer "silent warranty."
Brake rotors warped causing high speed vibration.
Computer malfunctioned at 50,000 miles giving false "Service Engine Soon" warnings.
The transmission shudders when going up an incline.
This car, despite, the problems cited above is reliable, comfortable and fun to drive.
The 4.6L engine with the Sport package makes it go and handle.
I have made it even better by adding a performance chip, removing the air silencer, adding a K & N air filter, Magnecor ignition wires, Spiral-Max air flow devices, cross-drilled rotors and high performance brake pads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
