Smartest Car Purchase of my life!
By M Carmon on
1990 Lincoln Town Car 4dr Sedan
Purchased used with 55K on it. Best ride ever, leather seats and 6 way adjustable seats. The air shocks replaced at 115K, water pump is a pain to change. AC needs to be recharged, the ex. temp gauge is defective, etc. All the little things that don't work now still won't make me trade this car. Mileage 27 mpg at 55 mph, 24 at 65. Combined city plus highway is 20.5 MPG. I have 244,500 miles on it, still passes emissions like new, original transmission.
Huge trunk!! This should be a taxi. 5 passengers plus luggage to the airport. Love the computer. Plenty of power for Colorado mountains. I have snow tires all around, roars through the snow. Always starts in cold weather.
Find one with low miles. Change the air shocks, fix the little things, install your own sound system, cup holders, etc. You'll save $10,000's instead of buying a new 2009 or 2010, and your mileage will still be great.
