2001 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


I bought this black over grey fully loaded Continental after driving a Park Avenue Ultra, Cadilac Seville, and Chrysler 300. This car was just plain faster and handled better. It'll run rock solid at 80 mph and still get 25 mpg. The user adjustable air-suspension and steering are valuable because you can get very good ride control. It won't float, bounce, or lean at speed. The engine is red-lined at 6,500 rpm and it'll run that fast. Low-end torque, say below 1,500 to 1,800 rpm, is somewhat slight; so, if you are used to a standard normal V8 then you're gonna have to goose it a bit more than usual off the line. But, after that just hold on.

Favorite Features

The exclusivity; this is a boutique car with all the expected options.The air-suspension is valuable. In the "sport-mode" the car handles well making it very safe for grandma and grampa. I'm serious about this comment: It won't get flustered if you come in too hot and back out of the throttle.

Suggested Improvements

Lincoln needs to bring back its successor. The LS is like Lincoln does Mustang; and the Towncar is out of date.Try to find a Continental that is FULLY loaded; it'll have a wood and leather steering wheel as opposed to all leather. And try to find one with the bucket seats and console.
