I Love My Town Car It Has Been Like A Good Old Friend To Me. — My Town Car has been one of the best cars that I have ever owned. I wish that it could last for the rest of my life. With over 200,000 miles on it I am pleased with the longevity so far.

If You Want A Nice Roomy Car To Go Out On The Town In Or Vacation, This Is The One! — I have gotten great feedback on the look of this car. I have had to make a few minor repairs, yet the transmission and engine are very strong. It is great to drive, I want to keep it, but I need more room. The 22" rims makes it stand out. Gas wise it great on the road, but okay in the city if you keep up the maintainence.

Town Car Rocks Lol — This car is awesome, it can take a beating and is a blast to drive. lots of room, 4 doors, big trunk, nice sound system, looks pretty sweet, good engine to make fast and is reliable. Mobster car for sure.

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

Great Commuter If 20 Miles A Gallon Is Acceptable. — Pinnacle of straight luxury. Don't think you can race in one of these, but you won't be hurting for power getting on a freeway or up a hill. Slow down for turns... way down. It's two tons on car on a truck frame. Easy ride like driving a leather couch on a pillowed suspension. Gas mileage isn't as bad as an SUV, so for a lot of freeway miles, you could do a lot worse.

I Love Lincolns — I liked the ride, the available space and the fact that I got fairly good gas mileage for a large car. It was enjoyable to drive. This is my 2nd Lincoln Town Car and the 6th in my immediate family. I would recommend to everyone. I \t was in excellent condition no repairs needed no rattles.

1997 Lincoln Town Car — When someone looks at my 97 Town Car, they don't view it as a threat. However, this car is a trooper. I beat my friend's 1999 Audi A6 in a 0-60 drag the first month I had it. It can get there in under 9 seconds, which is pretty good for such a heavy car. The wheel turns like butter, but the radius could be better, but braking is pretty good. This car is built like a tank, durable and strong. However, this car is built with style. It doesn't look as streamline as new cars, but it stands out in a crowd. Warning: if you buy this car, expect to pay 70 dollars for a fill up in the meantime averaging 13 city 20 highway. But, if you dont mind gas, you will love this car!!!

Pros

the ride, the looks, the sound system

only complaint I have is the door hinges weren't adequate to support the heavy doors. They'll have to be replaced at some point.

I Wish To Hell They'd Resurrect This Body Style And Paint Color. — I've owned five Town Cars in my life: two 88s, a 94, 95 and this one, the last of its kind before Lincoln rounded off all the edges. Many consider them vehicles for the graying. But I adore this lap of luxury. Always have!

Like Driving A Couch — This car is all about comfort. I often say it is like driving around on my living room couch. It has an eight-cylinder engine that responds to the request for acceleration and speed. I love the digital dash; wish my car had it. The mileage is not bad either; I get about 22 miles to the gallon. All in all, if you find one of these that has been kept up, you should seriously consider owning it
