Comfortable Land Yacht
By Tim R. on
2003 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I have owned 4 town cars and one navigator. The town cars have all improved in quality, and this car is no exception. Very smooth, quiet, and the ultimate road car. I love the steering wheel controls for the stereo, ac, and Cruise. The car now has 122,000 miles on it. Repairs have included a new rear axle (bearings went out), 2 sets of brakes (rotors tend to warp), and 4 (!) new drivers side power window switches! The cd changer isn't working properly. Other than that, just regular maintenance. It has been quite reliable and gets reasonable gas mileage for such a large car. On state highways going 65, I get 27 mpg. On i90 going 80 mpg, I get 22-23 mpg. Very comfortable car!
More horsepower! It isn't bad, but 239 hp aren't quite enough for a car this size. Better stereo - the in-dash cd and the 6 disc trunk changer both have issues. Ac has troubles keeping up sometimes when it is very hot, but it isn't bad.
