1996 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan


Review

This automobile is a true classic. The exterior is in very good shape, the color silver is classic. The interior is luxurious leather and silver. All this is because it is the 75th silver anniversary edition. It has low mileage. It has very little to no wear. It has all the options available includes the cell phone.

1996 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my 4th or 5th Town Car, and my second one in this body style/engine configuration. These are solid, dependable, and well appointed vehicles. What little gas money you might save in a lesser car is more than well compensated by the lower long term ownership and insurance costs. They have everything, and they don't break a lot...and no payments!

This car provides a comfortable and quiet ride, (reasonable) power(it's NOT an LT1), and reasonable gas mileage. The pollution control system is not so invasive that you cannot touch the car without having it become a problem, and the traditional styling and build are a plus for maintenance and/or modification.


Best Features

Quality of interior, ease of repair, roominess and features. Most particularly, the non GM style exhaust system.


Worst Features

A little more power, a little more mileage, I guess. But that's out of a lack of anything else to suggest, more than anything else.

Review

Purchased in 03 with 52K, now has 265,000 miles. Engine has never had the valve covers removed. I have no plans of getting rid of her. These cars are cheap to maintain with plenty of original parts on ebay etc.. Obviously I have taken care of it.


Best Features

Leather couch like seating, great ride with air suspension, JBL stereo still sounds great, Bulletproof Modular engine


Worst Features

DOHC engine option,

Review

My first car, I bought my car for 3k with 168k miles on it. Ran fine for a week. Then things started to go, catalytic converters, the ac/heat (combined total of ~1200). The stereo went, and an aftermarket double din will not fit. All new rotors and pads; other than that, the car has been great, highway drive is amazing, my friends are jealous (they love driving it as well), sound system is great, heat is hot and the air is cold. I would buy another one, probably a Cartier with fewer miles. I did look at an 05 town car and it was nothing like the 96. Personal opinion, best year for the car.


Best Features

Air suspension, leather, digital dash, the power steering, climate control, and HUGE trunk space.


Worst Features

More reliable. Cheaper to maintain. HUGE blind spots no matter how you set the mirrors up.
