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.

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

Pros: Nothing better dollar for dollar

Cons: Expensive replacement parts

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Absolutely Nothing

Cons: Everything

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.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: class, style, & attitude

Cons: blend door

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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fast, rare, luxurious, last of its kind

Cons: air bag suspension- an easy fix tho

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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!

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

Pros: Good power, handling, looks, comfort, design

Cons: Air ride

Like Heaven On Wheels — Words can't describe the ride. You have to drive one. 0 to 60 in 6.0 flat. The paint still looks like it was just painted after 10 years. 27 MPG on the highway. Hugs the road like it's on rails.

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

Pros: It feels like oyu are in your mothers lap when you drive this car.

Cons: air suspension

1998 Lincoln Mark Viii — Overall, the car has very good driving dynamics. Lincoln did a good job tuning the suspension. The 4.6L V8 gets good gas mileage and has good acceleration, despite the 3.07 axle ratio. The lines of the car still look great even though the car is over 10 years old. This car is a keeper.

Pros: Engine, Driving Dynamics, Styling

Cons: Steering wheel is too small, A little cramped for taller drivers

Luxurious Yet Sport! — I loved how it was luxury but at the same time had the horsepower to outrun or race a lot of cars. It is just a all around gorgeous and strong car!!! I would recommend anyone to get one because these cars run forever and i have not had any problems with mine!!!

Pros: Horsepower with luxury!

Cons: No complaints!
