1990 Lincoln Town Car Sedan Signature 4dr Sedan


Review

At first it wasn't my favorite body style, bought it because it was cheap. But boy, how it has grown on me! I'm known to own Fords and my favorite was a '77 LTD, but this one has definitely taken it's place, big time! The tires and Dayton wires add to fun of displaying it, and it is exceptionally clean. Couldn't have found a better car especially for the money I payed. Great investment!


Best Features

Digital dash, auto climate control, trunk & interior room, beautiful velour seats, gorgeous paint, wheels and radio, and its numbers matching original. 130,000 mile 302 runs like brand spanking new!


Worst Features

Wish it could have better gas mileage. Should've bought it new.

Review

Bought my 1990 Town Car with 145,000 on it and just over 210,000 now. Starts every morning at 20 below or 110. Only issue was the window motors but a common issue. Just a great car. Owned 4 Caddys and they where junk! 5.0 gets 16 in town 23 on hiway. Good enough for me to be in a safe car. These car love miles! 200K is just getting broken in!


Best Features

Reliability. Comfort. Cast iron rear drive tank!


Worst Features

Wheres the cup holder? $33,000 car new in 1990 and no cup holder?

Review

I am only 18 years old and have had this car for a year and it is of great quality. I bought the car because I liked the body style and 1990 was the only year of that style with the 5.0 in it. This car is one powerful luxury vehicle even if it is 17 years old. It only has 84,000 miles on it and it seems like it will run for many more years. With the right maintenance these cars run forever. I have only had minor problems and one major problem. Minor problems were rear window regulators, which is common with these, antenna and truck lid motors giving out, and exhaust pipe rusting. Major problem was the airbag sensor because of the cost. All in all this is one safe, powerful, and spacious car.


Best Features

Power everything, digital dashboard, automatic a/c and heat, air-ride suspension, spacious interior and trunk, safety and body size, overall power and performance of this car.


Worst Features

None but bring back the 5.0

Review

Always wanted a big car with a good ride. I was shopping for my wife a new van and the dealership had just taken it in on trade. It was Love at First Drive (92,000 miles). Looked at the car on Monday and bought it on Wednesday. Much better fuel economy than advertised. Fantastic Ride. But at 156K it started falling appart (lots of little stuff),then the from the mechanic... Crank & Cam sliding back and forth, computer can't ajust timing. Wish I'd bought it New.


Best Features

Ride, Room (interior and trunk) and winter handling


Worst Features

Build it in the same style and size and I'll buy it new.

Review

I purchased this car used in 96 with nearly 100K on the odometer. It was to be a second car and would receive little use. It has been so comfortable and reliable we started using it as the everyday car. It is a pleasure on long trips and is a decent daily commuter. It is the last of the OHV (302) engines and is of a proven design. Currently have over 205K on it and have only performed routine maintanence, tires brakes, plugs, filters, etc. It is the last Town Car to have the heavily bolstered seats. It is like sitting on a cloud, everywhere you drive. It is a shame that this exact model has been "improved and updated" I would never own a different model car.


Best Features

Comfort, memory seats, outstanding climate control, very easy to maneuver for a full size car.


Worst Features

re introduce this exact model, add cupholders.
