Review of the 2001 Lincoln Town Car

  • A Lincoln Town Car at Lincoln Town Car prices. Buy a Grand Marquis with all the trimmings instead.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy interior, long wheelbase availability, decent handling when equipped with Touring Sedan option.

  • Cons

    New horsepower improvements aren't enough, average interior materials quality, awkward-to-use trunk.

  • What's New for 2001

    Horsepower has been increased throughout the model lineup. Inside, the Town Car gains adjustable pedals, seat-belt pre-tensioners, upgraded map pockets and leather grab handles. Signature models have a wood-trimmed steering wheel as standard and the front seats in Executive models now have power lumbar adjustment. Lincoln now offers complimentary maintenance at no additional charge for the first three years/36,000 miles in service.

My 1st car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

this is my 1st car and as a 17 year old driving around a Town Car I have to say it is awesome. Mine has only 71k miles on it so it's still a baby when it comes to these cars. Only problem I've had is I had to replace the idle air control valve last week because it went bad and the car would stall out at idle, but $80 for a new one off rock auto and it was done! Couldnt ask for a cooler 1st car!!! I'm still amazed that I get 30+ MPG on the highway for such a big car.

Bring back the town car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

These cars are awesome. I bought one with over 395K miles on it. The original owner took extremely good care of it. I have owned it for 11/3 years and I am approaching 423K. It still has the original engine and transmission. at 412k I had to replace the a/c compressor. Other than regular maintenance that's it. The key is to do the regular maintenance and these cars will last a log long time. Unlike the Cadillac's whose Northstar engines have valve cover issues and the transmission usually fails at about 150k




Love my lincoln!

Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is the 3rd Lincoln Towncar I've owned. All have been excellent vehicles. I have 121,000 miles on my 2001 Lincoln; have spent very little on upkeep other than new tires and a heater coil in the 8 years I've owned it. Love the large trunk; can haul almost anything; very reliable; gas mileage could be better, but car is so heavy and sturdy, that makes up for it. They don't make them like this anymore!




The great lincoln town car

Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I was promoted at work and needed a car that I could drive a lot between stores and pick up exec's from the airport and drive them around. The towncar has been the best decision. It's ride is outstanding, the gas mileage is good, and the comfort and style of the interior keep the comments coming from everyone that rides. I have not had one issue mechanically from this car and I drive 3000 miles per month. Every mile I drive is with a smile on my face.

Super gas mileage

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This 2001 Greenbrier edition Signature series which we purchased new has been a good, economical and reliable car. On a trip to Rome, Ga from Chambersburg, PA, (all interstate and driving 60 MPH) we averaged 32 MPG. Several years ago while driving in the flatland of North Dakota we averaged nearly 34 MPG for several hundred miles and driving at 60 MPG and on cruise control. People assume that because it is a big car that it is a gas guzzler. Nothing could be further from the truth.




Comfort with decent mileage

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I average about 17 miles a gallon. Comfort is the key word for my Touring Edition sedan. I can fit everything but 4x8 sheets of plywood in this trunk, which makes it great for my work. Had problems with the factory installed alarm system. It's been good to me, and I learned to do the repairs myself so I'm looking at keeping it.
