Nice Car but beware
By valkarie on


1998 Lincoln Continental 4dr Sedan


I bought my 1998 Continental with 100k miles on it.
I love the way it handles and the gas mileage is not to bad average 22.9.
Premium fuel is expensive.
Beware of the suspension. Rattle in the rear end can cost you over 1200 bucks. I had to replace my AC, Charging system, Battery, Tire rod ends wiring harness, all the pulleys and belts about 3k worth of work in 45k miles.
It does not hold an alignment well and eats tires.
The resale is TERRIBLE. I have 146k on mine now and lucky to get $1700 bucks RETAIl. I had a Grand Marquis before this and I am picking up my Town Car tommorow.
I am done putting money in a hole.
Although you can buy these cheap beware they can get very expensive.

Best Features

It handles great. Plenty of power rides nice.
