Cons

Rear leg room, air suspension reliability

Cobra In A Tuxedo — 300hp in a Lincoln. Air suspension that comes stock is comfortable, reliability is an issue though. When everything is good, it is good. When its bad, its terrible. Fun to be able to run against the new V6 Camaro and Mustang and make them feel bad for losing to a 16 year old "Grandpa's" car.

The Hot Rod Lincoln — A great car to mod and have fun with, and still look classy in. A real luxury cruiser, but still a sports car at heart. It's a T-Bird with a Cobra engine with big comfy heated power memory seats in it.

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

Nothing better dollar for dollar

Cons

Expensive replacement parts

Love It! — Awesome car...Built very well. 4.6L DOHC engine has plenty of power and achieves nearly 30 mpg on the highway! 290 HP & 290 TQ Looks good and rides well, even with airbags replaced with springs. Best looking interior of any car I've ever been in. Very comfortable front seats but there's not enough head room or leg room for rear passengers. HID headlights are awesome looking and work great. Distinguishing neon taillight looks really cool, unlike any other.

Crappy Car, Don't Buy. It'll Break. — I hate this car, you all know how much trouble it's given me! Stupid fuel pump, electrical fire, light system and electrical system shot. Kill me and the dumb car! Don't ever buy this car. you will regret it. Performance- bad all around. brakes are failing i think. Build Quality- rattles and i think my tires are going to fall off. Cost- about $50 to fill up each time. Fun- what?! absolutely none!

blend door

Schweet — 2nd gens are slower, but they are waaaaay nicer inside. thet also have more bugs, like blend doors, funky door handles, rear neons that go out often, but they look great when on. overall, they are great cars for the money.

Excellent Car. — No need for an introduction, if you know anything about cars. This Lincoln Mark VIII LSC is a 290 horspower 300lbs torque luxury liner. Technology is way ahead of its time including HIDs, puddle lamp and turn signal mirrors. It is very responsive and the seats are better then any other car 9/10 times

Pros

Power and comfort, and more computerization/interface in 1998 than a lot of cars have even today.

Cons

It had its share of known issues, like front self-adjusting suspension.

I Truly Miss This Car Every Single Day. — Performance : 280 horsepower was enjoyable Build : It was a spruced-up Ford, it had issues, lets face it. Appearance : Ahead of its time, people thought it was new 8 years later. Cost : 24 mpg highway, not bad for a 17-ft-long 2-door land yacht. Maintenance, on the other hand... Fun : surprisingly fun to drive, and DAMN comfortable.

Air ride

98 Mark Viii Lsc — The 290hp 32V V8 has plenty of power and torque. Air ride went out so I replaced them with 1.5" lower coil spring conversion kit. The car is fairly nimble for the size and I so fun. Kinda sucks in the winter but is still FUN!

One Of The Most Fun Cars I Have Had The Privilege To Own And Drive. By Roger

Fantastic car. 0-60 in the wink of an eye and gets 27mpg on the highway. Air suspension is a bit costly when it gets old but fix it once and it is good for another 15 years. One of Fords best! Read More
