Comment 1 :   Mark, Suggest getting on the TBN forum with this question. Some hints though. Anythings fair between invoice and MSRP particularly with the 2005. Discounts can change daily according to some I know that work with Ford dealers.
Comment 2 :   You will probably get a better deal on an 04 than an 05 since the dealers are trying to get them off the lots. Some are trying harder than others. Shop different dealers.

Comment 1 :   Can anybody give me a rough idea how much would be decent prices on either a new 04 or 05 TBird? Is it just the standard invoice + a few hundred - 1000 rebate, or is there additional discounting I should expect to be able to get? thanks!

Comment 1 :   Don, Normally the transmission does not need replenishing. Its a sealed unit. The owners manual and the Dealers service books already have the correct fluid listed.
Comment 2 :   This was a glitch from the source that makes the fluid and the additive is needed to correct. Normal servicing is at 100K though it can be done sooner.

Comment 1 :   Just received a letter from Ford asking that I take my 04 Bird to the dealer to add transmission fluid additive, designed to correct improperly formulated fluid installed at the factory.
Comment 2 :   It is to prevent possible delayed or harsh reverse engagements. Does anyone know what fluid to use in the future? Dealer says they have not yet received information.

Comment 1 :   I have two 007 editions. One is new with 12 miles and never titled. I am going to sell it and am trying to put a price on it. I am looking for help in the valuation since the price on these has been all over the place.

Comment 1 :   Sure am glad Ford finally made the new bird. Had to sell my 57 when I went to Vietnam. Told my wife that I would buy one again if Ford ever built it again. Waited 37 years!

Comment 1 :   Bill, try Fordsource.com - theyre a Ford dealer but they have the best prices if you end up having to buy from a dealer.
Comment 2 :   Or try ebay.com. The boot comes up occasionally. Or join the TBN aka thunderbirdnest.com and put out a request there.

Comment 1 :   David, #1 - check the tire pressure #2 - visit the Thunderbirdnest.com forums and search on shaking, cowl shake,
Comment 2 :   A number of early 02s needed their cross bracing tightened to specs and a scattered few from other years have benefited by having the cross braces checked and tightened to specs (slipped thru inspections at factory?)
