1997 Ford Thunderbird LX Review
by Sean

Great Value, great performance, excellent ride

Purchased this car new when I was 19. It was (in my opinion) one of the best values for the dollar. Plenty of horsepower and torque. It had four wheel independant suspension with four wheel disk brakes. Cornered wonderfully. Drove the car over 100k miles prior to selling it. I regret that decision every day. The only thing that I wish it came wit...

Avg. Dealer Rating: (2 reviews) "Car looks fair for the price, but I didn't realize the hidden troubles and received terrible service. As soon as I purchased the car, I drove it off the lot and a Check engine light came on and the car begins to bog down. This was not evident during the test drive. They said someone may have put regular gas when it requires premium. They told me to ride it for a few days and/or fix it myself and if there were any trouble, they would fix it. I denied the request and demand that they fix it now and then I'll pick it up. I mean it's only fair that they should fix it since I was already seeing a troubled engine 5 minutes after I left the lot. Nothing was fixed over the weekend and they said that they can't really do anything except removing the gas tank and emptying it out. I didn't want them to keep the car longer since I really needed a car for work so I denied the request. Also, prior to purchase I told them that the timing chain sound loose due to a rattling noise within the engine. They said that "it was normal" and if I were to place a $500 deposit, they will have it checked out for me by their mechanic. 2 days passed and their "mechanic" said it was the aftermarket exhaust (wtf really?!) that made the noise and everything was normal. I told them I was on the way and upon arrival they haven't even cleaned or washed the car yet. So I waited an extra 2 hours so that they can finish. Basically the $500 deposit did nothing and it was an incentive for me to come back. Turns out, based on the Mazda dealership, that I was right with my rattling noise diagnostic since the timing chain was loose and the VVT needs replacing. This caused the chain to hit the side of the valve cover. Overall, they made many false promises to me until my purchase. Once purchased, they could careless, the sales person even ignored me when I came back when the check engine light came on right after leaving the lot."

Avg. Dealer Rating: (2 reviews) "After talking to JC and driving all the way from Plano, TX to FT. Worth, TX he did not even come out to greet me at the car lot after calling him on the cell phone. Worst, he did not know it was the vehicle after pointing to it. Vehicle was messed up and NOT like the photos on the internet!!"
