Has Your Car's Value Changed?
Used car values are constantly changing. Edmunds lets you track your vehicle's value over time so you can decide when to sell or trade in.
My first experience with buying a used luxury car with 80k miles. Lots of expensive problems with brakes, faulty engine head bolts but I really liked the way it rode and drove. Finally sold it at 125k miles when it needed new air shocks, at that time only available from mfg. at more than what the car was worth! Even then, probably would have done it but transmission had a weird slipping problem going around corners. This was essentially built on the Taurus platform and with improvements to the items mentioned is what the Taurus should have become in my opinion.
Everything has been replaced somethings 2 times! NO confidence in Lincoln Motor Co.
My opinion of the 1990 Lincoln Continental, based on my own sordid experience, would be: It has been one of the worst cars ever from a reliability/maintainability/mechanical standpoint. I have had to replaced almost every major system. The only major component that has not failed is the forward portion of the transmission. The plastic interior molding flakes silver chips constantly and has for years. The sun roof leaks, the engine cuts off for unknown reasons during the spring and summer, the A/C/Heater is stuck permanently on "on", etc.,
junk junk junk, glad its got a big trunk, keep your tools in there, but when the suspension is out (3 times) itll cause for a rougher ride with the extra weight
