I own 3 Town Cars, a 95, 96 and 97. The 95 is by far the most responsive car to drive, great transmission response when accelerating, unlike the other two years that feel you may not really want to go fast and take their sweet time in down shifting. A further plus is the 95 runs on regular, the other two years really need high test to not ping. If you keep your foot out of it around town the mileage is really pretty good, and the 95 seems to be better than the other 2 years by about 1 MPG at 22. I have 260K mile on 96, 125K on the other 2. 96 is about shot, runs great, all the bells and whistles failing. Bad things - the window systems flat suck. the front end wears out after 100K miles.

My 95 Town Car was left to me after a family member passed away. That was 16 year ago. I have driven the car 417,000 miles since then.
This car is about as bullet proof as you can get. I've had Honda's, Acura's and even a Lexus during the whole time I've owned this car. I have to say the Lincoln is just old school comfort plain and simple. It's not fast and it certainly no sports cars in the corners either. This car is built to cruise and on the highway she does a solid 23 mpg. I've recorded 25 mpg but that was before the lousy E10 gasoline came our way.
The weak link in Town Car is by far the rear air suspension however you can buy the parts cheaply and they are easy to replace.

Lincoln has done a wonderful job with this automobile.
Bought the car in 2010 with 100,000 miles.
Now August of 2011 has 130,000, and the only trips to the mechanic were for brakes and oil changes.
Car ride tremendously, especially with the air bag suspension.
The 4.6l V8 to this day doesn't burn or leak anything!!!
Love the leather seats, and all the power amenities.
Only issue I have had with the car was putting a driver said regulator in. Great car, cranks every single time, rides great, can put 5 big adults in car.
I get around 19-20mpg average with a 20 mile commute, but last year i got 28mpg hwy on a trip to NC!!!
Love this car, and will definitely buy another Towncar!
The Town Car of course was a livery automobile, and very good at it. People who were picked up in one did feel special. However, until about 8-10 years ago, lots of consumers of luxury cars also saw i...
