Our first Lincoln was a 1987 and we traded it in for the 1998 only because we had put almost 185000 miles on it. We really never had a problem with the 1987 except for replacing the front and rear airbags. (ouch $1,500.00) for for front and same for rear. Our 1998 we have had only 1 major problems is all, (replaced front sway bar) other than that we just have done regular maintenance (oil changes every 3000 miles, rotate tire every 4000 miles and etc.) Always garage kept and washed and waxed regularly. This car rides and drives like a dream. Plenty of power when you need it and you seem to float down the highway.(Because of it being white lots of people on interstate think it's a cop car.)
Looks, styling, comfort, and of course POWER. Really a joy to drive with plenty of room for others.
Redesign the cup holders upfront, so that if you put something smaller than a cup in holder, such as a bottle of water it will stay in place. Starting to get some rust in rear outer wheel well. Need to get water out of this area better.
