1996 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased the vehicle used and had put about 12,000 miles per year on it. At the 130,000 mark everything fell apart. Pieces of the interior are falling apart such as the wood like lining on the front doors. Parts are expensive and difficult to get. The air bag suspension is terrible, tiny tears in the bags put pressure on battery to refill, alternator, and generator. These things need continually replaced. New suspension is upwards of $4500 at dealership. Or get proper suspension for closer to $3000.

Best Features

Pretty body, stands up to an accident. A small Honda civic pulled out in front of me and was essentially totaled. Lincoln didn't even lose a headlight. Only a minor scratch on front bumper. Also, big V8 will get you up a hill our out in traffic easily.

Worst Features

Air Bag suspension is a deal breaker. I will never buy another car with this suspension
