"I bought this car with 40k and now have 115k. At the time I just needed something cheap and in a hurry. Used, these cars are a steal. I drive 300-400 miles per week and get in the low 20's for mileage - mid 20's if all highway. The only repair outside of normal maintenance was replacement of the rear air springs. Went to regular coils as they were cheaper. I don't need a car to tell me were I'm going or how to park. Very low tech but in return, very reliable and inexpensive to maintain."
"This is the best car I have ever owned. It is like sitting on the living room couch on long trips. I am also amazed at the gas mileage on long trips.
On my first trip, I actually drove for 4 hours without a stop to relieve my backside. Who could ask for anything more."
"I sell these cars new at a dealership, and I'm so convinced they are the best riding cars on the road I even own one. My main reason for choosing to drive this car is from talking to those who come to our service drive for maintenance and our service technician's high recommendations. I have observed the odometers on limos and commercially used Town Cars with well over 400K miles on them w/ no major engine/transmission troubles. These same folks tell me if their engine or trans. were to fail even after that many miles they would just replace it and keep driving it another 400K miles. Beautiful respectable maintence-free cars(other than regular oil/filter/brakes/tire changes)."
Pros: "A/C that will freeze you in Arizona - set on Low."
Cons: "The paint on the bumpers could be better."

"I have owned many makes and models. I grew up in Detroit, at the height of it's Motor City reputation. Overall, the Lincoln Town Car is the best and most consistent car Detroit ever produced. The 4.6L V8 is powerful, fast, yet economical. If you don't make jack-rabbit starts, and you coast to the inevitable red lights, you will average 20 mpg. There are nights when I would rather sleep in my Town Car than in my bed - 'nuff said! :-)"
