axle issues on 2003 models
By eugeneinchicago on
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.
Comfy, Safety, SILENCE inside of the car
Not a chick magnet like my Mercedes S500, seats on the front are too wide and not for skinny people, but all of panther based cars are not for skinny people. So if you are BIG (Tall and wide), then this car is for you for sure. BAD STEREO
