Review of the 1998 Lincoln Town Car

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Last of the big, honkin', rear-wheel drive luxury sedans. Improvements this year include revised steering and suspension geometry, which makes the Town Car somewhat more fun to pilot around town. A fully loaded Town Car rings in at thousands less than its full-size competition from Japan and Europe.

  • Cons

    There is a stigma that goes with buying a Town Car. It will either label you as a Sun City retiree or a New York limousine chauffeur. Not the image that most people are looking for.

  • What's New for 1998

    Lincoln redesigns its Town Car this year, making it lower, stiffer and faster. The interior is nicely improved as well, with softer seats…

Great car!

Vehicle: 1998 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan

I have owned this car for only seven months. So far I have had very good luck with this car. So far I needed only normal wear and tear items replaced. A good riding car. I can't complain.

I purchased my 98'Lincoln Towncar Executive from my father at 117000 miles a year ago. He bought it at 50,000 miles from a dealership, it had been a corporate program car. No problems with it. Excellent car. Rides nice, no engine sound in the cab, no problems. My father replaced the upper and lower ball joints before I bought it and did some exhaust work. I put new spark plugs on at 100,000 miles. Otherwise nothing has been done to it. I get 24.5 mpg at 65 mph down the interstate. I'll get almost 30 if I drive 55 down the interstate. Trouble free and comfortable. My only complaint is it is horrible on snow-packed roads so I no longer drive it in the winter.

Great car. Love the interior room and trunkspace. Also love that it's an american made rear wheel drive car. Handles well, great exterior styling looks like a mafia car. Built like a tank, I feel safe and ride in luxury. There is a little lack of power, but that can be taken care of (I put dual exhaust on mine!) and performance heads would make a big difference too. Gas milage isn't great, but is good for a car this big.
