It's AN OLDER CAR AND MUCH MORE DURABLE THAN THE NEWER VEHICLES WE OWN.

IT IS A 1996 THUNDERBIRD, THAT YEAR WAS NOT AN OPTION ON A PREVIOUS QUESTION. I BOUGHT IT NEW SO I'VE HAD IT OVER 20 YEARS. WE HAVE NEWER VEHICLES BUT THAT ONE HAS BEEN WITH ME THROUGH SO MUCH, I TEND TO STICK WITH IT. IT HAS OVER 300.000 MILES ON IT AND NO SERIOUS ISSUES. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT IT SITS SO LOW TO THE GROUND. OUR NEWER VEHICLES ARE SUVS SO THEY ARE UP HIGHER. AS I GET OLDER, I WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE TO GIVE UP ON MY CAR AND DRIVER AN SUV, AS It's GETTING HARDER TO GET INTO AND OUT OF THE CAR.

A great running car that suits all different ages. Classic and sporty.

I love this car. Very comfortable seats, sporty and it is a classic. I have a little problem with the transmission but it runs great. It does need some body work, but it is a great car all in all. It has cruise control, but, the get up and go on this car is amazing.

- Jane H

My car has a wonderful turn radius, amazing gas mileage, and never hesitates to crank right up. The most reliable car ever.

There really are no major issues with my car except the clips that hold the door panel on are terrible quality. I had to screw my door panels on because the clips broke.
