Review of the 2002 Lincoln Continental

  • If you are looking for an alternative to a Cadillac DeVille, then this is your car. But move quickly. The Continental is dead after 2002.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of useable features and options, attractive styling, powerful V8 engine.

  • Cons

    Large size hurts maneuverability, unsupportive seats, minimal interior storage, lack of refinement.

  • What's New for 2002

    The Continental remains relatively unchanged for 2002, its last year on the market. One new exterior color debuts, and an optional Vehicle Communication System (with portable analog-digital phone) is now offered. Available at no charge are a power moonroof, a six-disc changer and an Alpine audio system.

Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I have owned many cars to include muscle cars, but have never had a nicer car than my 2002 Continental. We almost made the mistake of purchasing a Towncar. The car is bullet proof, although I suppose parts will fail someday, like the air ride and air conditioning, as it continues to age. I will repair everything but the engine and will continue to drive it. We're over 122,000 miles and going strong. I admit we've looked at replacing it, but with what?? A heavy car with a beefed up V-6 that won't last for more than six years? Ford needs to bring this car back with rear wheel drive and a hefty V-8. Oh, and if you do, Henry, throw in a little more sound proofing.




Super sedan

Has been and excellent car. Purchased as a Lincoln corporate vehicle with 20000 miles on the odomenter. Now 80000 miles. 20mpg city and 25 to 28mpg highway at 70mph. 80000 miles with only recent tire replacement and new battery. LS was a poor replacement, should have continued to build and I would have purchased another.

High quality and value

Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Purchae from Ford Executive coming off 2 yr. lease. Front wheel drive with traction control is better than on the Saab 9-5 I owned before. 24 mpg highway, 19-20 mpg in town...not bad for a big V-8. Comfortable in town or on the expressway. Maintained by a local Ford dealer with no surprises. Love the electronic ride control, too. Better than a Caddy at a lower price! Too bad they quit making them.

This Lincoln has been a true pleasure to own and operate. I have owned this car since it was brand new from the Dealer to me. No major problems and no warranty issues at all. I went and had this car serviced as required and it's performance was indeed a pleasure. Just before 100,000 miles I had services preformed and the dealer found items to replace under warranty and all were done at no cost to me, they even provided a loaner while work was done. This car again drives as new and all I had to do was replace the front tires. Rear tires have 100000 miles on them and are still going. Great investment and great car to own, to bad Ford discontinued the platform, it's a great car.

Who would have told me?

Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

As a younger person I would have never thought of a Lincoln but my friend at the dealer insisted I tested this car when I got fed up with my Mercedes and so I did and it was the beginning of a love affair: I love this car. I will drive it as long as I can. I also own a Jaguar and it sits mostly in the garage because this Lincoln is such as sweet ride.....I get 24 miles on the highway!! with a V-8? incredible but true. I had the software upgraded and the mileage is greater than before. I most definitely recommend this car and scold Ford for dropping out of the line in favor of what? the plastic-cheap LS? Fire the CEO!!

The Continental 2002 was not a FAD car or a purely retro design. It is no more retro than the new Rolls-Royce Phantom. It spoke to a pure design element that began by accident with the full sized clay...

Actually, the MKS is wider than the 2002 Continental, which did not seem narrow at all. It was a big car, even then. The other weird thing...cars are often able to carve out more legroom by being tall...

fantom: The Continental in its current form dies after 2002. There are no plans to make the LS into a Continental that I am aware of. The Wixom plant makes the Town Car, Continental, LS, and Thunderbi...
