Slow Groove Comfort Cruising — See above. Acceleration when needed. Big reliable 4.6 V8 engine. This car had 120400 miles on it when I bought it a year ago. It has 124000 now. I just drive the TC on nice weather days. Car shows. Long rides. Not in the city.

Pros: They don't make them like this anymore. Power, luxury. Not bad gas mileage for it's size and V8 engine. Reliable. Quiet. Serene.

Cons: Cup holders?- small "con" though.

Owned — This is a beautiful car for cruising. I love riding with the family in this and going to the Drive in. Great for long trips because it is very quiet and has a smooth ride and has been very low maintenance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very comfortable and reliable

Cons: Gas can be good for distance but in town can get pricey

Moving On Up! — I like the reliability of this car. I can jump in it and cruise off into the sunset at any time, with the gas card in my pocket. It does require frequent trips to the gas station if you are in the city driving. When you get it on the highway, it will make you forget all about the gas station, though.

Pros: Stylish and comfortable

Cons: Just bought it, but the front end needs to be serviced.

Great So Far... — I've just owned the car a month...but I'll say this you can tell your driving a car thats got a touch of class..just the sound the doors make when they close is different so far I love it. I drove grand marquis for years, great car but there not lincoln town cars.Now that being said I put some inital money into the car and know that they can get expensive to maintain but I'm trying to keep ahead of the curve. So far so good

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Luxury

Cons: I worry about the air suspension system can be costly

Nothing Rides Like A Lincoln — my 6th town car and is by far the best one yet. the improvements made in ride, handling and quietness is astounding. The interior is much improved too, seats are better, sound system is better and driving angle/site line is better than the previous model.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: ride, comfort, style

Cons: none

Lincoln Towncar 98 — One may think this car is over sized and just plain too much, but the shocking thing about this V8 is that it gets 25+ miles to the gallon even with the 225,000 miles I have put on it. It has fantastic curb appeal when you pull up to a clients home, and is spacious enough that when you take that run to the airport to pick the team up they all fit (with their luggage).

Pros: gas mileage, curb appeal, spacious

Cons: parking
