The Mark VIII is definitely not without flaws, however it is a really great car. It nhas never left me stranded, repairs and maintenance are very affordable and fuel mileage is reasonable for a RWD V-8 coupe.
I've had two mark VIII's in my life. I haven't had a big problem with either car. I had a 97 Lsc and a 94. My 94 i picked up for a 1000 and i literally have not had to replace anything besides brakes and tires.
It's got a lot of power. I love the way the car looks. My 94 gets 26 mpg right now. My favorite has to be that original air ride though, it's so smooth
My only suggestion would be to bring it back. Such a beautiful car. I have no idea what Lincoln was thinking
I paid $1,900 for my MkVIII with 168k miles and its still very strong in all aspects. Had to repair the power windows ($40 in parts) Needs paint due to flaking clear coat, Needs a Water Pump but otherwise perfect. I cannot imagine why the retail is so low on this fantastic muscle car but Im thankful, which means I can buy another just for drag racing. I have made some mods to the exhaust which really makes it sound as powerful as it really is. This car is SOO MUCH FUN that I still grin and giggle every time I mash that gas pedal down and get sent back in my seat. What else can you buy car wise for under $2,000 that is soo much fun.
Smooth Power, Glass smooth Shifting, Luxury car with the feel of a muscle car.
Headlights are very bad on this car by nature, design flaw by lincoln.
What a car! Bought this dream vehicle this past week. Dark red with gray leather interior. Rides like a dream, and has plenty of punch when you step on the gas! Total power at your finger tips! And a sun roof to boot! What a gem! Plan to get a lot of Summer "ROAD TRIPS" in my new ride!
Sun roof, full power and leather! Lots of power!
Brighter head lamps and longer wind sheild wiper blades!
I bought this car when it was 4 years old. It was the first car that the men in my life had no influence over. My husband thought I loved small cars, boy was he wrong. I love, love this car! When I first bought it, everyone gave it double takes and now after all this time, guys stop in the parking lots asking if I am interested in selling it. 2 years ago I spent $2200 and had a beauty of a new paint job put on it because the orginal was peeling. It drives like a dream and really has great speed and turns on a dime.
The power and comfort
Get rid of the air ride system, it's been the only bad thing.
