2003 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
With 21 years and 400K miles driving
Lincolns, I loved them and bought the
'03. More annoying issues with this
car than I've had in 20 years.
Vibration at idle is built-in and
can't be corrected. Compared to older
Lincolns,the car has poor acceleration
from low RPMs with poorer gas mileage
and a smaller gas tank.Contrary to the
manual-duplicated pages-doesn't have
DSP.Left out an AM filter so the AM
reception was a return to the '50s.
With a fix,dash now rattles. Gas tank
cover wouldn't open. Lincoln won't
communicate. Comparing features,
Lincoln designers have done next to
nothing in 10 years. I take that back--
they took the quality out.
Ride quality is still great.
A GPS option that doesn't require a
Sprint telephone. Build something I
can trust again.Take builder's
responsibility for your quality and
quit blaming the dealer for every
issue. A regional Lincoln rep
said "Did my dealer instruct me on how
to open the gas tank?"
