1997 Lincoln Town Car CartierReview

I Have No Reason To Buy This Car. —

Yet I bought it anyway. I can rationalize that I needed a bigger car, with actual back seats, for when people visit from out of town. Truthfully, it'd be more economical to rent a larger car when need arises. I can rationalize that I needed a winter car when it's cold outside. Truth is with it's small cabin, thin firewall, and cloth seats, the Miata will warm up a lot quicker than this. With both cars being rear drive with no traction control, the Lincoln might have a slight advantage in rare Georgia icy conditions only because of the sheer amount of metal I have around me due to its size. I drive them both nearly equally, though I favor the Town Car more for longer interstate commutes because it'll burn less gas than in mixed driving. But I do enjoy this car and don't regret buying it. It's been rock solid so far. There's an open Ford recall on the cruise control module that needs to be done. The part is on national back order so right now the cruise control and horn don't work. CC isn't entirely necessary in Atlanta traffic, but a horn would be nice. My middle finger is getting tired. I love the soft ride aided by the air suspension. I specifically wanted a Town Car just for that reason, something diametrically opposed to a Miata riding on 40-series 17s. And the trunk, it's comically huge. I only keep a small ice scraper in it. Plenty of room for a subwoofer. Service date: 12 October 2007 to present. Gasoline used: 87 octane over 2100 miles, averaging 20.66 mpg. Per gallon price ranged from $2.639 (10/19/07) to $2.959 (12/30/07).

Pros: Soft, pillowy ride, roomy cabin, huge trunk, runs on regular gas.

Cons: Sucks gas, but expected from a large car.  Oddball factory audio system.
