Review

I love this car. I have had it for 7 years. I have never had any trouble with the workmanship inside our out.


Favorite Features

Ease of drive, love the heated seats, roomy inside, huge trunk, very stylish car. Stereo is excellent, except for the placement of the CD.


Suggested Improvements

The CD changer in the car, not in the trunk.

2002 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very reliable, gets 22.3 MPG average in winter. Have replaced breaks and tires due to normal wear. Best interior room around, very large trunk, very comfortable ride. Found it had better knee room than DeVille. Automatic mirrors seem erratic, but may need to be reset -not sure. Very satisfied -but wish they would upgrade gas tank to 20 gallons and improve gas tank safety for rear impact, although it is pretty reasonable now. Great seat warmer, or as I refer to it prostate warmer. Paint did tend to scratch easily on the plastic parts -perhaps some insufficiently durable water based paint used on those parts?? Very reliable and comfortable after 3 years of use.


Favorite Features

Large interiror room and ride comfort, reasonable milage, good trunk space. Turning lights that light up road before you make the turn.


Suggested Improvements

Better paint on plastic exterior parts, improve the self-dimming interior mirror, better safety on gas tank, larger gas tank, move info center or redisgn -exterior temperature need to be on RV mirror. Dumb-ass radio on/off/vol button pain turning on and off -same problem as in marquis. mp3 line-in.

2002 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

It has been in the shop 5 times in a year for the same thing and they haven't found the problem yet. I have had to put off our vacation this year while it is in the shop. It floats all over the road, has a mind of it's own. When a car or truck passes it pushes it off the road and when you try to compensate with the steering, it pulls back across the line..you never know where you are going. This is all at a speed of above 60 mph. At 59 or below it drives good


Favorite Features

Heated seats, automatic a/c, exterior design

2002 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After reading all the other testimonials about the town car, it amazes me the amount of people that compare the town car to the Lexus LS430. Of course the Lexus is a wonderful car, it's $30,000 more! It better be. The town car is wonderful for the money. The quality is more than adequate, nothing compares in the way of interior room and comfort. And no, it's not a rocket off the line, but it's not supposed to be. Quite honestly, I don't believe the suspension could handle it, but then again, you wouldn't have the ride. You want handling, buy a corvette, stupid.


Favorite Features

interior size and many standard features. Incredible, silky smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

The wind noise could be a little more subdued.

2002 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I'll start off by saying I titled my review "modern classic" because that's basically what this car is. A modern spin off of big 1950's full sized cruiser sedans. The bench seat, column shifter, V8, rear wheel drive, body on frame construction, and shear size make it feel like a more refined classic cruiser. This is something I really like about the car. This isn't a car for people who want a Mercedes or BMW, this is a car for people who want a true laid back cruiser. However, if I were to do it again I would have gotten a top end Crown Vic or Marquis as the mechanicals and interior are %99 the Town Car as the town car for less money.


Favorite Features

very safe car, simple timeless styling inside and out (it won't look tacky in 10 years), V8, smooth ride, lots of adjustment in the seats, power everything, good stereo (premium sound), awesome climate control, big trunk, room for passengers on long trips. Overall a great cruiser for the money.


Suggested Improvements

By modern standards, the V8 has the output of a V6. It really needs to be bumped up to the 275-325hp range. The climate control has no "inside only" air setting. Front seating room could be larger for a car of this size (almost 1 foot of empty space in the nose). Massage seats. 5-6 speed trans.
