Had for a month, Great solid ride. Only Avg 17mpg city. Previous owner loved this car. I limo tinted the windows that gives an even more unique look. Just had 2 control arms replaced at 72,000 miles and fluids flushed. Ford Dealer said that was ONLY thing needing to be fixed, that the car is in EXCELLENT shape. Thats a Dealership folks!!!! They would laundry list the Repairs to make money!!! So im VERY Pleased to hear this. Nice sound system for 11 years old, but WILL add my 2-10" subwoofers in the Back of the trunk. Trunk is not very DEEP. Backseat room!? None. Who cares!!! Im concerned aftermarket warranty wont cover AIR RIDE suspension. I guess ill find out! BUT I LOVE THIS CAR!

It is a classic style that everyone likes and fun to drive. Only major repairs were front ti-rods replaced and finding replacement HID Headlamps which Ford is no longer manufacturing and none to be found. Had to spend $650 for a headlamp retrofit kit, plus $250 labor to have headlights that work. Difficult to find certain parts since Ford no longer makes this vehicle. Shame on Ford!

A classic in the making

After wanting one of these cars for the past twenty years or so, I finally got myself one. I have just been diagnosed with a serious ailment, and realized if not now, when? It drives like a dream, and still reminds me of the magic carpet ride of a Riveria from many years ago. The acceleration and ride are fantastic, and the pure fun of driving her are just fantastic. Power behind the 32 valve V8 is incredible. I could never have afforded one of these when new, and feel very lucky to have found this one in as great a condition as she is in. I'm going to have much fun driving around as long as I am able. Minor considerations of suspension, etc. can all be dealt with the right friends.

Still a great car

What can I say, I just love this car. It's a wonderfully smooth ride around town or on the highway, soaking up potholes with ease. The V8 provides effortless power at any legal speed. Gas mileage is usually around 25 on the highway, though I've gotten it as low as 22 (fast into a headwind) and as high as 27 (65 w/ a tailwind?) If you're having traction problems in rain or snow, it's your tires. The first set I had were lousy in rain and snow. I've since switched to 2 sets of tires- snows for winter and a set of summer performance tires. Repairs since the warranty ran out have averaged about $800/yr, which I'd consider well worth it to drive a Mark.

Love my mark viii

I purchased this car for my wife as a present when she received her Masters degree. We had a second child and the Mark VII with a 6 year old and an infant just don't do well together, so she wound up with the SUV and now the Mark VIII is my daily driver. I love this car. Yeah, sometimes when it rains, the information center blinks, but big deal. The only significant problem so far after 85K miles has been the blend door on the AC controller. Cost about 400.00 to fix it. We live on a dirt road and most of the times it is severely 'wash boarded'. There are NO squeaks or rattles. This is one solid ride.
