When I bought my 1994 T-Bird in February, I said, "I'll drive it for 20 years"! Seventeen years later, it now has 198K+ miles on it. It's been a great car. Too bad a couple of the mechanics haven't been so great! :-)

I've been using 10-40 weight for several years. I've not had any engine problems. Although, there may be some coming up! I'm being told by Jiffy Lube it's outdated, not in use. They don't stock it anymore.

Car Review: 1994 Ford Thunderbird
July 25, 2010, 06:21 PM
This is the best road car next to a Cadillac. 28 MPG from the very start. Some problems over the years, but made repairs immediately (some under warranty). Have not had repeat problems. Keep it maintained better than the average person. Have every maintenance receipt since I purchased it new. I'll tally up the receipts - see what its cost me over the years.
