2004 Ford Thunderbird Owner Comments

This is the fifth time this 2004 Thunderbird has had to be returned to the dealer for the failure of one or more coil-on-plug ignition module. These are a known problem by Ford, but they refuse to do a simple recall. They claim the defect is not 'life threatening'. Ford has extended the warranty on these modules to 100,000 miles,----- or, 10 years from the car's in-service date. If the car's warranty on this is not over the mileage barrier, it will soon be out by the time restriction for most TB owners.

This is a warranty job, but I still loose a full day of the car and the expense of taking and retrieving it. I have now had six of the coil modules replaced. Hopefully the other two will go before my 10 years is up this fall.
