Quick with a 4.6 DOHC all aluminum, and with mods like exhaust work, different rearratio with limited slip, air intake mods this is a low 14 second car, and there is virtually nothing on the road that can roll with it. It handles great expecially for a big car, and is beautiful with lots of style and design innovations. Air ride is nice but not dependable-you have to figure on replacing components every 6 to 8 years. Headlights are a joke, but HID kits on ebay cost $77 and are simple to install, so that problem is history now. Still able to get parts, but the 96 is the most unique and rare, so this'll be an issue one day. I will always have one-great car!

My 96 Lincoln stills feels a tight as the day I brought it home. With 90,000 miles it still drives, runs and looks like a new car. Never had any problems. My only complaint is the headlights are a bit dim.

Excellent car--looked great, powerful, wonderful seats and interior. The perfect car for highway cruising, handled well for its size too and the air suspension provides a comfortable but not floaty ride. The 32v V8 is one of Ford's best engine designs, smooth and lots of power. The shape still looks contemporary 10 years down the road, and the interior design is the best of any car I've owned. Beautiful and functional. Safe, too, mine was totaled in an accident and I walked away without a scratch. I miss it...would have bought another had I been able to find a low-mileage example. Destined to become a classic, and hopefully I'll have another one by then...

The best part of this car is it's acceleration...Like a rocket. The worst part is the headlights...I would be better off with two flashlights it's also a little tight in the driver's seat and the passengers seat but i'm 6'2" and need the height and width.

I love this car! It's a used luxury
bargain. I 've had it over a year with
only regular maintence required with
60K miles on it now. It's sleek and
fast. The seats are very
comfortable "like butter" my friends
say. I just took a trip from San Diego
CA to Laughlin NV and it was a breeze.
No fatigue what-so-ever. Decent gas
mileage 25 mpg on the trip (mountains)
I've seen 27 mpg, with a low of 14 mpg
strickly around town....not bad for
what it is.
The ride's not as mushy as a Town Car,
a little firm for a luxury car. The
back seat is a little tight when a 6'2"
friend was back there.
