1996 Lincoln Mark VIII Coupe LSC 2dr Coupe


Review

This car is already over 13 years old and still kicks the snot out of 80 percent of the new cars on the road today. Why Lincoln stopped making these Ill never know, this is my 5th one. The people who own these cars NEVER get rid of them. Still looks modern 14 years later. If you get a chance to own one of these you will see to, and never get rid of it.


Favorite Features

Mileage, Performance, BIG MOONROOF that slides all way back into roof or pops up like normal.


Suggested Improvements

If you get the base model without HID headlights, you will be disappointed by the nighttime driving. The headlight insides were a poor design from the start. Other than that, this is by far an awesome car once you put new High Intensity Headlights into it.

Review

I've enjoyed this vehicle to the limits. 220,000 miles and still very strong. Trans rebuilt at 150,000 along with some air suspension/electrical repairs. Rust is beginning to take over however i just wont part with it until its done!


Favorite Features

Power, look, handling.


Suggested Improvements

Stock radios are horrible! component systems should be an option also the air suspension is over rated.

Review

Decent mileage for what it is, 22-24MPG on average. If you like to feel the road and enjoy driving without being in a true 2-seater - this is the car! I've had mine almost 10-years now; just turned 70,000. It's been super reliable - did have to replace a headlight - not cheap! The Toreador Red Clearcoat, chrome wheels, and moon roof make it a real head-turner. She sure doesn't look her age and gets compliments almost daily. I prefer its tight, somewhat stiff ride to the mushy rides of the Town Car and Cadillacs - I feel like I'm in a "grown-up" Corvette (which I drove for a few years). Just wish they still made these cars - can you tell I'm really attached? A joy to drive!


Favorite Features

I love its power - the way it "sits- down" when I accelerate and the "squall" of the engine when my foot hits the gas pedal on the open road. I love its style - it's a classy, sporty, car that should become a "classic". No wonder Ford is going broke - they stopped making the best thing they had!


Suggested Improvements

Improvements - that's a moot point since they don't make these anymore! If they did, a better headlight system, some interior amenity changes (1 cup holder is rather stingy). And, of course, Navigation/GPS.

Review

this car consistently get's 26-28 miles per gallon, that is at 70 mph and ac running. We average over 400 miles a tank on 18 gallons. Great power for passing on 2 lane roads, we currently have 88k on this automobile and i have no intention of getting rid of it.


Favorite Features

A real sweet ride and comfortable on long trips.


Suggested Improvements

some weak points on the electronics and headlight costs.

Review

The LSC is outstanding. For a 10 year old car with over 100,000 miles on it, the car drives like new. All of the bells and whistles, and there are many, operate perfectly. I still think the body shape is still simply stunning. Plenty of power and great handling for a car of this weight. The LSC model produces an extra 10 horsepower. Because this car was Fords best thing to roll off the assembly line, I predict it will someday be a classic. It is a true personal American muscle car.


Favorite Features

The wife actually likes it!


Suggested Improvements

Make a Mark IX.

Review

I bought my Mark LSC as a second car for commuting (talked my wife into it) and since than it's the only car I drive. I love the HID headlight and all the features but most of all the power... and lot's of it. After about 4 mo the only thing I had to change was the oil. The engine and the transmission are still very powerfull although it has 125000 miles on it. The car has all the features in working conditions. If you have a chance to buy do not hesitate it's worth it. I know mine was.


Favorite Features

The power and the quick response from the engine and trany. The stereo the power options, memory seats, phone etc.


Suggested Improvements

make some more soon!

Review

I'm the proud owner of a pre-owned 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC. I've got to say that Ford Motor Company really hit the nail on the head with this vehicle. It drives, looks, accelerates, and handles beautifully. It's a shame that today's fads have forced auto manufacturers to make their once spacious, powerful sports coupes into closets on wheels. If Ford had to reduce the size of the T- bird & replace the Mark VIII with the LS to compete with the imports, they should've at least left one big sporty car. This car is - was - nearly perfect in every way. I fully support a Mark IX built on the same concept - big, fast, sleek, and luxurious.


Favorite Features

Message center, HID headlamps, auto climate control, auto-leveling/lowering suspension, 10-disc CD changer, the sound I hear when the 290 HP beast roars to life.


Suggested Improvements

Non-old lady ext. colors! The grill should've been slightly redesigned before 1997. On the Mark IX, I'd like to see a nav. system w/GPS, On- Star, and gull-wing doors would be a nice head-turning touch. The DeLorean shouldn't be the only car to have used this innovative feature.

Review

I have had this car for 4 months now, this car is excellent on the highway. I learn something new everyday about this car. It looks good, and drives good. Even for this to be a older car, it still have all the luxory features of a brand new car.


Favorite Features

the sunfoof is my favorite feature. I like for my hair to blow in the wind. the next feature I like is the stero system it has.


Suggested Improvements

I really can't say it needs improvements,because you knew what you was getting before you bought it.
