Black Beauty Conti

1996 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan
Purchased my Lincoln Continental with 25K miles on it. Presently, I have 79K on it. The vehicle loves to cruise the highways and is not an around town vehicle. On one trip to NC from CT, I got 27 miles to the gallon. Summer driving merits better gas mileage than winter. The vehicle was engineered for super premium only fuel which is expensive at the time of this writing. There has been no recalls on this vehicle to my knowledge. The body is extremely resilient and sturdy. The front end tends to be disappointing and Lincoln allowed a huge repair on the rack and pinion at about 40000K. The air sensors in the wheels can be a pain and if you have problems with them, bring the car to a dealer.
Moonroof is excellent. Stereo and built in phone are nice features as well. Again, this car loves the highway. A good cross country vehicle.
Air sensors in tires are a nuisance. Nobody knows how to fix them. Front end can bring you expensive problems. Interior leather door rest split at 50000 miles. Car should be able to burn a lower octane gasoline with today's outrageous prices.
