I currently drive a 2001 Lincoln Continental, and I plan to own the car until it dies. It is such a reliable vehicle that also has a great level of performance. Despite the fact that it is a Lincoln, I compare it to a Cadillac because the Cadillacs were always known for their performance while Lincolns were known mostly for their comfort level. This is a great vehicle for people of all ages, but unlike its counterpart Town Car, the Continental appeals a lot more to a younger man like me due to its torque and smaller size. Discontinuing this model was one of the worst mistakes Ford ever made. The car got better as the years went on. Imagine what a 2010 Lincoln Continental would look like.
Nice, large mid-size frame with great handling. Extremely comfortable on the inside with a nice sound system. Enhanced torque with the In-Tech 4.6L V8 engine. Very fuel efficient for a V8, particularly on the highway.
None, because the car has been discontinued. My improvement: RECONTINUE THE CAR!!!
I totally love this car inside and out. I look around and this black and chrome machine is better looking than most new cars. I bought it used and it apparently had a significant accident front end so as the car got older. Some annoying things started to wrong. At 125k miles keyless entry stopped working, cruise control, and some interior lights. Then engine light came on. 2 misfiring cylinders. Now I have a periodic check transmission. Despite all this I attribute some of the problems to the accident before I owned it. And am seriously considering re investing to bring car back to 100%. The car is a great ride.
Black and chrome exterior, leather and wood grain interior, quite and good looking machine. Powerful even with misfires that I'm getting
I purchased a 2001 Lincoln Conti and love it. My previous vehicles have been Lexus ES-300, Toyota Avalon, Chrysler Concord, Infinity I30 & Honda Accord. I have to say the feature list is extensive. More then in any of the other cars.
Looks very classy, very reliable, handles extremely well, tons of interior bells and whistles, comfortable seats fantastic sounding stereo, lots of interior lights, smooth trans fit and finish is excellent, lots of controls on the steering wheel, smooth ride without affecting cornering, wood trim,
When my husband purchased this care for me, I was surprised, I put the car on the highway the same day...I was impressed about the performance and gas mileage, it handled the road very well. When my husband is driving, I feel like I'm sitting in the living room, not to mention I'm five eleven (Head room a plus). Our kids enjoy the space in the back seat and the pull down cup console. Just unbelivable. I thought it was a granny car, but I soon found out...This is the car for me. My husband is searching for one for himself.
Side mirror adjustment, traction control saved me a few times, system control check and the chrome tires. My sound system and steering wheel controls. The engine is very powerful and quiet!
Why bother! If ain't broke don't fix it...But bring it back.
Purchased this vehicle as a "sometime" driver; have a company car to drive to work, and an old minivan for hauling stuff. So the Lincoln is used to go out with the wife, visit kids at college, or travel. I did not believe reviews I had read about this car's gas mileage, but I am getting around 24 mpg combined. This car effortlessly flies down the highway, and is like driving a leather recliner. The trunk is massive for suitcases, etc. I cannot believe that Lincoln stopped making this car. It is a luxury car, but people were probably afraid to buy it because of the V-8. And no, you do not need premium. I have no problem with regular unleaded in this thing. Buy one if you can!
Ride, gas mileage, comfort inside, spacious trunk, classy appearance.
Back seat could be roomier, air suspension could be quieter, it can be noisy at startup when adjusting.
