My Outstanding 2000 Lincoln Continental
By AlHa on
2000 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan
Purchased at at 56,000 miles and now at 77,000. Excellent ride quality (NY potholes become laughable), ride comfort (drove 250mi. to NY and back to PA numerous times without stopping), no service issues whatsoever, vast array of interior features (except cupholders, I have spilled a few drinks in a turn or quick stop), solid frame (no weird noises and doors close solidly), great Alpine system. I love the straight line acceleration from a stop and on highways but forget about any white knuckle excursions around back roads. Over-the-top interior and trunk space (I've seated 4 fully grown adults in the back seat). 2 negatives: fuel consumption and fun factor
Sound system, reliability, ride comfort. Best $9,900 I could have spent on a car.
I've spilled a few drinks turning or stopping with the front cupholders. Fuel economy is more like 12mpg in city but 23mph in pure highway driving. While it has 275hp and l275lbs-ft torque, don't expect to be racing around town. It definitely handles like a full sized, 3,880 lb. sedan.
