    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very reliable, roomy, attractive and comfortable.

    Cons: I wish it had tighter steering.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great luxury car with plenty of room, like riding a plane!

    Cons: Inner city driving can be costly

    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.)

    Pros: Semi-fast for its size, easy to mod up

    Cons: it is really heavy and therefore not as fast as it could be

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfort, reliabilty.

    Cons: If you're looking for performance, don't get one of these.

    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.

    Pros: smooth ride, good gas mileage, beautiful car excellent condition see review above left

    Cons: none

    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: Powerful engine, built like a tank, comfortable interior

    Cons: Gas mileage, turning radius, super sized

    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!

    Pros: the ride, the looks, the sound system

    Cons: 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.

    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

    Pros: n/a

    Cons: n/a
