Hello guys!!

First of all, i apologize for any bad english.

Now:
Im looking to buy a new, more comfortable car with a bit more power since i have a new job further away from home.

And i got an offer to trade in my old saab for a 1996 Ford Thunderbird 4.6.

How good are these cars? Reliability, mpg, speed, comfort etc?

Is there enough room for lets say me driving (6'5" tall), a rear facing childrens seat in the passenger seat, my other child (7 years old, about 3'11" tall as well as my wife about 5'11") in the back seat to ride in decent comfort?

Now that would rarely happen, but if?

My boss who has worked with selling parts for american cars since the 1970s claims the 4.6 is a bulletproof engine, and this generation t-birds are good cars.

The only faults with the car is that the fuel gauge shows full until there is about 3 gallons left in the tank and then it drops.
And also the lambda light is on.

But i need more opinions, mostly because my wife is against it haha!

Thanks in advance!

I've not heard any serious problems. It all boils down to this: how much do you love the car. Once you've been bitten by the bug, the little nuances that normally agitate others merely give it a little personality for you.

No i have googled a lot and they seem like dependable cars.

Yes it is true what you say, really the only problem i have with it is that i think it is incredibly ugly. But i can live with that if its comfy and gets deeecent mpg.

Its my wife that has more problems, thats why i want to know about interior space and mpg and such.
The car itself is pretty far away so i want to know some stuff before i go.
