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
Cost of Ownership, Safety. I had a 2002 LTC and hit a deer at 50 mph. while there was front end damage (headlights, grill and hood) I was able to drive away and hardly felt anything when I hit the deer.
