Get Lot's Of Looks. — Fun to drive with top down. Handles well but not as tight as competing roadster makes and models. Only 17MPG City with small but powerful V8 engine and rear wheel drive. Had ECM replaced by dealer at a cost of approximately $700 total (part alone was $350 on line and $500 from dealer), but otherwise reliable auto. Six disk CD changer jammed, but I was able to repair and replace changer myself without replacing entire radio.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A real head turner. Removable hardtop convertible. Flashy yet inviting interior.

Cons: Some interior plastic is brittle.

Bought It New, On A Whim. Glad We Did. Worth The Money. — Neat little fun car. Nice looking with the hardtop and with the convertible top down. Eight years old and only 14,000 miles. the RedBird spends it's Maine winter in the garage under wraps. A TWO person car, perfect for my Wife and I.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: A Great Little Ride

Cons: Nothing as far as I am concerned.

Getting To Know You... — I am just getting to know this car. I liked these sine they were introduced and think Ford really screwed up when they didn't achieve the sales they wanted. I bought the car because I missed having a convertible, and I like the aesthetics. Speaking of which, if I have complaint, it's that the center stack where the radio/hvac controls are is very boring and apparently directly from the Lincoln LS. But, it isn't hard to use! I have a full accent interior which matches the exterior. I believer this was only done in the 2002 model year. All in all, so far, so good.

Pros: Gorgeous and comfortable

Cons: Nothing yet.

Beautiful Classic 2002 Thunderbird — This is a wonderful Cruiser, Top Down or with the Port Hole Top on, you're always in style and comfort. Drawing questions and looks about the T-Bird wherever you travel, while listening to the rumble of a 280 horsepower Ford V8 under the sculpted hood.

Pros: An ABSOLUTE CLASSIC!  Turns heads and draws attention everywhere it goes.

Cons: Not a Hot Rod. Very Capable in every power band, but not a racer.

Great getaway cruiser for two or a daily driver. Less expensive to maintain than most of its competitors of the time. Stands out and drives great while bringing the class most aged Miatas have long lost.
