Review of the 2003 Lincoln Town Car

  • A big American luxury car that can transport multiple people and their associated material with little effort. The 2003 revisions are welcome, though the 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis offers a similar experience for less cash.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy interior, quiet cabin, throaty V8 engine, huge trunk, availability of a long-wheelbase model.

  • Cons

    Lack of brand prestige, poor expected resale value.

  • What's New for 2003

    Lincoln's full-size luxury car receives an extensive reengineering for 2003 designed to make it safer, quieter and more luxurious than before. Major hardware revisions include a redesigned frame and modifications to the suspension, steering and braking systems. The standard V8 engine is also more powerful. Visually, the Town Car is more formal in appearance, and the old-fashioned Lincoln "star" hood ornament is back by popular demand. Creature comforts are addressed by the addition of newly standard equipment, increased storage space, additional safety features and improved interior materials.

Love my town car

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Town Car Cartier 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is my second TC. My first was a 1997 model. Both produced a smooth, comfortable ride, especially on long trips. I also use the car for long (100 mi) work trips each week. Yes, style is dated but the car has so many positive features, like good gas mileage for a large car, cavernous trunk, easy to read dash display, automatic climate control, back-up sensor, heated seats, more. Small problems crop up now & then, but I expect that with so many luxury features available. Plus, the car is no spring chicken. Things break.




Great ride; rear end problems

Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Town Car Cartier 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Bought this used Town Car after having owned a 1996 Executive. Better car; better ride; great styling. Around 72K mi developed noise in rear end. I'm now informed that I need a bearing kit for the rear axle. Wearout at less than 75K mi is unsatisfactory. Ford had a recall on "some" 2003 TC's, but not mine. Also had to replace brake rotors. They seem to warp easily and require regular turning (maybe it's new metallic type pads). Overall, I still love the car and I'll stay with it




Great car with bad looking

Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Town Car Cartier 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Cannot figure out how Ford can neglect a great car by allowing its luxury cars exterior design get so out of date. Cadillac's Deville has not faired nearly as badly. Some of my friends have owned Lincolns for years and they now have Toyota Avalons or Lexus. From a quality, reliability,and premium vehicle standpoint, this is a fine product. Ford get with it. This is not a livery only vehicle.




Third, worst and last

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Town Car Cartier 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is my third and last Lincoln. The quality is just plain overrated, mediocre at best. The wind noise around the front windows/doors will drive you crazy, not to mention the engine noise. Not enough power for this size car and lousy gas mileage. A/C will not keep occupants cool if outside temp is over 80.




2003 4dr cartier premium

Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Town Car Cartier 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Overall this vehicle has been very pleasurable and comfortable to drive. Although this automobile may not appeal to every young person, it has turned the heads of many.




Best town car ever

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Town Car Cartier 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I am 39 years old and have owned Lincolns since 1987. My family owned Lincolns since the 1979 Lincoln Town Car edition (a classic vehicle). Although I am an avid Lincoln fan, therefore a bit biased, I must say that the 2003 Town Car is by far one of the BEST Lincolns I have had the pleasure to own. I have been renting Town Car's when I go on business trips since 1989 and and when I had the opportunity to rent a 2003, I instantly decided to trade my 2002 Continental on a black Town Car Cartier. Geez, what fantastic car. This car handles like it is floating on a cloud. I can't say enough about what a magnificently constructed vehicle this is.
