Review of the 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fast, Fast, Fast. Lots of neat doo-dads too.

  • Cons

    Back seat is way too small, and the exterior styling is garish.

  • What's New for 1997

    Lincoln thoroughly updates this personal coupe, lighting the darn thing up like a Christmas tree in the process. The Mark now has high-intensity discharge front headlamps, cornering lamps, a neon rear applique and puddle lamps. Wow, you'll see this thing from miles away. The hood, grille and interior have also been slightly redesigned.

The rated fuel economy must be average city and highway. When I put it on cruise control at 45mph on the long stretch between Gulf Breeze and Ft. Walton the instant mpg was touching 40mpg. Cruising at ~70 on the highway usually gets me around 27mpg, lately, and the engine is barely ticking over 2000rpm to do so. I prefer my old 93 to my 97, though, it seemed to be assembled with a higher standard.

Luxury Hot Rod! Loved the Mark VIII from day one, knew what they REALLY were, and now own two of them, a '94 and '97. The '97 now has 104k mi. and still doesn't use a drop of oil! The 4.6 Intech is an outstanding motor and combined with the looks, luxury and just plain fun-to-drive factor, I'm totally satisfied with this car. I don't see much on the road I'd rather own, or that can outperform it. All the accessories work perfectly and the only issues I've had to deal with were the front air bags and the blend door for the climate control. One thing I don't like is the non-replaceable rear window molding that tends to ripple..otherwise love it.. a lot! Top notch luxo-rod.

A hard-to-find car in this area, I was really stoked when I located my '97 Mark. It has the extra-cost Ivory Pearescent Tri-coat paint and every option except heated seats. And with its Mustang Cobra-like powerplant, this luxo-barge will really hop when you press the loud pedal. Highway manners are excellent, even @ 90. Have only had to replace a serpentine belt, a coil pack for cylinder #6 and a driver's side low beam HID headlight bulb ($170.00 even with a healthy discount) in 15,000 miles. Touchy in snow, but worth it during fair weather. My Mark's been extremely reliable, just wish the cool neon taillight that stopped working didn't cost $700 to replace. Overall great, fast car.

Had to get a new alternator and machined rotor when new pads were put on.

JUST RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE FOR A GREAT PRICE AND MUST SAY THAT I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT SO FAR! PLENTY OF POWER, RIDE IS VERY PLEASANT EVEN WITH THE 18" RIMS/TIRES I JUST PUT ON. HANDLES SURPRISINGLY WELL FOR A BIG CAR. DEPENDING ON HOW YOU DRIVE THE CAR GAS MILEAGE IS PRETTY GOOD, ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY AT CRUISING SPEEDS. HEADLIGHTS ARE AWESOME BUT VERY COSTLY IF THEY HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

This car is just a blast to drive. The handling is amazing and the power never stops coming. This car has muscle-car performance and hanling while remaining composed, quiet, comfortable, and luxurious in the interior. With the HID headlamps, side turning lamps, puddle lamps, and neon tail lamps, and optional chrome wheels the exterior looks as good as the interior. The interior is really set off by the leather sport bucket seats. The car has a ton of neat features that you'd only expect to find in a Mercedes.
