Stunning, Solid Classic Town Car. Last Of The "good" Town Cars. — Ive had many Lincoln Town Cars in the past, but this is by far the cleanest, most "like new" one I have ever owned. As it should be with a mere 37k miles. A solid, super soft riding car that floats down the highway. I had a 95 TC without the Touring package that got better MPG, but this takes the cake on condition. Finished in a stunning pearl white shade over a dead white leather. Shows dirt very easy, but a striking combination. The factory chrome wheels really set it over the top. 37k Original miles. This is as new as they come. Have every book, brochure and trinket of information the car came with. Still retains some protective plastic sheeting on the interior that was never removed at delivery.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

The air suspension, & power moon roof make this sedan in my book.

Cons

Only uses 93 Octane, gets costly.

Only The Best! — I like every thing about The '96 Town Car Signature Series. Fuel is costly, but that is overlooked with the amentities car offers & drive it provides. The air suspension this car comes with is like driving in a cloud. No regrets owning a LINCOLN Town Car with '96 body style lots of leg room & seats 6 comfortably.

Pros

I love the Town Car. Overall, one of the best values, and the best of the 3 models, TC, Crown Vic, or Merc Marquis.  It is well built and holds together well. Fuel economy on the highway is between 22-25 mpg, which is great for such a big car.

Cons

The airbag suspension has to go. They are temperamental and subject to leaks. Costly to replace. Coil change out was less than 100.00. Not happy with the heater core taking 8 hours to change. Bad design flaw for these models. Have to take dashboard almost completely off. Window regulators are subject to failure. Dorman replacements are best.

Best Value For Old Dependable Car — I just about said what I thought above. This car has served me well, and I would keep driving it if my wife lets me. Ours just turned 243000 miles. Consistently dependable. Love the 4.6 16 valve engine. Efficient and quiet. No problem passing at 80-90mph. Makes towing easy too.

Pros

I have owned this limo since 2007 and commuted 60 miles a day 6 days a week. It proved itself to be 100% reliable. The car is very quiet and comfortable and averages 20 mpg. I have carried family and friends to races, concerts and numerous other events in luxury with room to spare in the massive trunk. The automatic ride leveling suspension keeps it looking good when heavily loaded.

Cons

Depending on where you live and shop, it's 22 foot length (limo) can be a parking challenge.

Smooth Cruiser — This Lincoln's interior can only be desribed as overstuffed opulence. It is more quiet and comfortable than the Cadillacs I have owned. The suspension is soft but it absorbs bumps in the road very well. The quality of the leather and overall interior construction is better than Cadillac's and is holding up very well after 17 years. The body styling is that of classic beauty and still has no rust. All of the power windows still operate perfectly while 3 of the 4 windows in my Cadillac Fleetwood failed! It's a sleek, smooth, reliable, memorable luxury ride. I sold this car in 2013. It was just too big for the small town that I moved to.

Cons

they stopped making the Town Car

Only Thing Better Than A Lincoln Is Another Lincoln — I hated this body style when they first came out with it, but once I drove it I couldn't get enough of driving it. I will they had put the 460 in but the 4.6 does an ok job. Nothing rides lik a Licoln Town Car!!! Even had a few Cadillac drivers switch to Lincoln after riding in mine.

Pros

classy, and ROOMY

Cons

if the intake isn't replaced

Its Fun, Its Big, And Its Nice — acceleration is not the best but not the worse concerting that it weights 2 tuns. the only major repair was the intake manifold (dupont made it out of plastic). It get 18- 20 mostly city but some highway. the "fun factor" is its a boat and if it still has air ride she floats down the road.

This Car Is Like A Cloud, I Almost Fell Asleep On The Weel! — This car is nice. First off it is good on the highway but it isnt a car you'd want to go racing with. The interior is that of a great luxury car and can fit alot of people. I also love how it can sometimes feel like a truck and a limo, whatever you prefer. But my favorite parts of the car are its handling and its air-ride suspension, this car is easy to drive and is comfortable to be in.
