1995 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan


Review

This Continental was designed as a BMW/Mercedes/Cadillac killer and ALMOST does the job....
VERY rare transverse-mounted V8 front-drive.
Wicked-fast 4.6L DOHC motor, had selectable air-suspension before standard spring conversion...
Had great paint with pearl, large, roomy and safe sedan.
Nice premium leather interior.
Bought car with 15k miles, now disabled with 210k miles.
Sort-of difficult to repair, and parts are getting hard-to-find.
Lincoln had a WINNER here, but attempted-to hybridize this car (in later years from a 7-year run 1995-2002) to a "fogey-mobile", and failure was the end result.
Heavy ride, quiet, and reasonably economical.
Had to have transmission rebuilt at 190K, had hard 1-2 shifts from factory.....
This car lives in hallowed company, with the likes of "forever" lasting Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis, only it's a front-driver.

Review

I bought this car from my father who owned it for 10 years. He bought it from the original owner! It has been a fun car to drive and it is an excellent car for the open road when going on a trip!

Review

Got this car as a Christmas present. Great design, great ride. Unfortunately in this day and time, loves gas and requires 93 octane. Ouch. Ride control system now has failed. The easy rider has become the low rider. I feel my wallet starting to warm up and after all is said and done, it will be smoking. Great comfort but is comfort worth the price now ? Don't think so. Will be researching what I must do to get the ride control in check and at the same time, make sure the computer or calibrations are in line. I will not put many miles on this vehicle since it is back and forth to work but at the same time, I want it to work correctly. I don't believe its worth much investment now.


Best Features

Interior is very comfortable with adequate room. Seats adjust to my memory loaded in computer. Ford knows how to make a big comfortable sedan.


Worst Features

Air ride control system has gone out. Granted, this car now has over 100,000 miles but would I be opening my wallet so quickly with an import ? I doubt it.

Review

driving for a week. dealer car. gave up continentals to have children cheaper. loved em but they ate at dinner table with me. love my cad. but nothing rides like a lincoln. this car 139k miles is so unreal to drive! outside is ugly. doesn't look like continental to me. but inside is awesome. only thing better would be heated seats and sunroof.dash is laser. dash is beautiful and easy on eyes.seats beautiful, trim nice. this lincoln is beginning to steal my heart like they did years ago. heater is best. stereo is ok. handling is really good. power is good.mileage is ok like a lincoln. drives like the big car but is a small car. no continental kit.. kind of sad.you know it's a lincoln when you drive


Best Features

floor shift,seats, dash laser lights speedo rpm etc,heater, interior all good, automatic moving drivers seat to get out, gold paint finish, inside is so pretty.car phone( onstar?)not turned on. lots of buttons and secret hiding places, feels safe inside, comfortable seat belts (this is so rare these days)


Worst Features

tranny dipstick hard to get to and hard to put back. laser dash disappeared til i fixed it,front end suspension and tranny hmmmm, put old mark 4 body on it and lincoln ride and cadillac mechanical ..good car that never breaks down..that would be the car of the century. i have always said that.

Review

Air suspension a big liability, and continues with intermittent performance issues. Also suspension components noisy over bumps. Otherwise, a very smooth and quiet car. Headlamp lenses are prone to oxidation. Runs fine on regular gas.


Best Features

Back seat has good comfort for three. An outstanding highway cruiser. JBL stereo as good as many of today's premium upgrades.
