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.

A great deal!

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

I bought my 2003 Executive used with 68,000 miles on it. It is pearl white with tan leather interior. I had trouble with water leaking in through air intake under passenger wiper. I repaired with automotive adhesive glue and sealed the joint with undercoating spray. That fixed it. I also had trouble with hesitation. I took it to the local Lincoln dealership and for just under $500, a tune-up and transmission fluid made it drive like a new car. I am at 143,000 miles and plan to keep it at least 90,000 more miles (new Michelins). I added in-dash navigation, satellite radio, and bluetooth. This is my fifth Lincoln and fourth Town Car. I will have another, no doubt.

Axle issues on 2003 models

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

I own multiple cars, 98 town car, s500 98, mercury GM 98 and this one 2003 town car. Better ride than anything else, not as soft as 98 town car though, they changed the front suspension and the ride became firmer. All model year 2003 town cars (made in the year 2002) have issues with the rear axle, I had to replace mine after 18,000 miles on it, and I don't drive much at all so it was at my expense, there was a recall on all of these cars but a free repair was only for vehicles sold to fleets rather than individuals, If you hear a whining sound from the rear, or any sort of "road noise" that means the rear axle is bad. They did resolve the problem on all of 2004+ town cars.




My experience with my lincoln

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

After purchasing my lincoln in june of 2003, I found that luxury and comfort were superior. I finally had a car I was proud of. I added a landau top and extra chrome to the vehicle and was very happy with the car.

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

Very impressed with fuel economy - 25+ hwy and 19+ city. Acceleration is stonger than expected. Seems smaller than it really is in city traffic. Wife even enjoys driving and she's normally driving an s70 volvo. No buyers remorse, best car buy decission I've made. Dealer very good to deal with, great pricing. Compared to my dad's DeVille, no comparison for luxury for the dollar. A lot of value for you money....
