I purchased my 2003 Thunderbird in 2013 with 24,000 km's and 2 years later I have 29,000Km's. I wanted this car just for sunny day driving in the good weather as I have always wanted a convertible. This car has not disappointed me a in any way for this type of experience. It is a fun, smooth and very comfortable ride, not to mention the head turns and comments from all who see it. Honestly, I have not had any issues with this ride and as a matter of fact, I would stack this car up against anything else you could buy for the price I paid.
