One of the best cars

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

I've owned this car for 4 years, I bought it with 121k miles and now it has 165k. It has been the most reliable car I could ask for, I got rear ended and it got totaled but since the damage was almost un-noticeable I did the buy back and I still drive it. I buy crap cars to try and keep wear off of the car. Where all my other cars have failed this has been there to catch me and hold me as my only car as well as backup. I hardly ever have to maintain it, I had to change a ball joint once and just change the oil. One of the best cars ever made.

Such a great car

Vehicle: 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

I have had the car for about a month, it has been really great. It got sugared and it is still running great. I couldn't ask for a better car. Everybody loves riding in my town car. It has so much room in it, and of course everybody calls it a granny car, but its not. Its a beast of a car and I love it, people know when to move when a town car comes their way. Because they know we be rolling. Lol.

Vehicle: 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

Just brought home my "new too me" 97. Previously owned a 91 and two 85 Crown Vic's. I'm 42 and have owned nearly 40 cars in my life, without question the 91 to 97 Town Cars will go down as legends. They strike the perfect balance of ride, fuel milage, comfort, dependability, performnce and just about every other catagory I can think of. The only short coming is driving in snow, but thats only because of RWD, but really, if you have half a brain, you'll be fine. If you don't get 22-24 MPG and 250,000 miles out of one of these, you aren't trying. And trust me, once you drive one, you will want to put 250,000 on it. All other cars will fall short, way short. If you are looking to buy one, DO IT




Best used car buy

Vehicle: 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

Bought this car with 47,000 miles on it about 5 or so years ago. Replaced tires and shocks with Biltstine shocks and drove it to death in my business. This car owes me nothing and only recently had to replace all four ball joints and brakes and a switch in the transmission. The last set of tires took me 70,000 miles. This is probably the best car purchase I have ever made and I'm 67 years old.

No better ride

Vehicle: 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

1997 Executive Lincoln Town Car This vehicle is an 11 on a 10 scale. The most comfortable ride, on the dash is a 3 steering setting so it can feel like any vehicle you want {not wheel steering adjustments up down etc...}. Great 23 mpg. The backseat looks like a couch. The trunk could hold 8 people. I bought it with 45,000 miles on it and now have over 100,000. Had to replace the intake cause I like to put my foot in it. Super fast, super comfort, what more could you want. And best of all it looks like a lincoln. Mine looks just like the photo above....GORGEOUS.

Best lincoln ever made

Vehicle: 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

24 MPG on highway. All controls clearly labeled - no confusing symbols. Lots of room - no bucket seats. Everything works. Beautiful design. Enormous trunk - bigger than most SUV storage areas. Long wheel base. Lots of insulation. Wonderful car.
