I have been more than happy with my car.. to the point that although I have had no major repair needed the entire time I've owned it, I would not hesitate to have those repairs done.. this has been one of the best cars I've owned..

My first experience with buying a used luxury car with 80k miles. Lots of expensive problems with brakes, faulty engine head bolts but I really liked the way it rode and drove. Finally sold it at 125k miles when it needed new air shocks, at that time only available from mfg. at more than what the car was worth! Even then, probably would have done it but transmission had a weird slipping problem going around corners. This was essentially built on the Taurus platform and with improvements to the items mentioned is what the Taurus should have become in my opinion.

The lincoln continental is a very fun car to drive , but there are some issues to deal with like the air ride system and the factory sound system, transmissions. I've owned three and all Ihad trouble with was the air ride, but if I was to tell someone to get one and drive one for themselves is the only way to experience them.

I bought my Linclon in 1999 at nine
years old for $7000. My wife hates
it. and I do to. My car is very good
in bad weather but not in the shop. I
hears very strange noises yesterday in
my car. Earlier today The car broke
down. My wife has a Sabb that is so
much beter than my car. My 27 year
old son's 1997 Toyota Camry and my 32
year old daughter's 1994 Toyota
Avolon and my 42 year old son in law's
1977 Honda Accord are so much better
than my car. My son in law's 1977
Honda which has 2 millon miles on it,
lasted longer than my old Linclon.
Next I plan to buy a Sabb or a Honda
or even a Toyota instead of this.

I got this car for a steal, or at least
I thought I did. It had its used car
problems, but no big. Then one day I'm
driving along, and the brake light comes
on. Hmmmm, I didn't feel anything wrong
with the brakes. Then all the sudden
20 min later, the brake petal sticks to
the floor. Yeah, electric brake booster
failure. Try $2000 for parts and $600
for labor cause no one will touch it but
the dealer. So that was a huge
investment down the drain, anyone want
to buy a great car, needs break work,
And they would have had it 3 years ago, if they had brought the 2002 Continental concept to market. But then think also how much further ehead Ford would be if they had simply re-skinned the Crown Vic...
