Used 2001 Lincoln Continental Consumer Reviews
I currently drive a 2001 Lincoln Continental, and I plan to own the car until it dies. It is such a reliable vehicle that also has a great level of performance. Despite the fact that it is a Lincoln, I compare it to a Cadillac because the Cadillacs were always known for their performance while Lincolns were known mostly for their comfort level. This is a great vehicle for people of all ages, but unlike its counterpart Town Car, the Continental appeals a lot more to a younger man like me due to its torque and smaller size. Discontinuing this model was one of the worst mistakes Ford ever made. The car got better as the years went on. Imagine what a 2010 Lincoln Continental would look like.
very nice car a true top of the line American Sedan. Lots of power and its smooth. The 275hp v8 is nice prem fuel is recommended but with the knock sensors on every cylinder its not needed 87 octane is fine. I went with the goodyear tires. and a K&N air filter I am getting 21mpg.
Bought it used with 19k on it. A wonderful car. Got some cracks about driving an "old man's" car, but I don't care. Just hit the pedal and leave those people behind. 32V8 really puts out thrust. Absolutely no flaws, rattles, anything. I will be in this car for a long, long time.
we have a 2001 Lincoln Continental. It currently has 321,000 miles on it. We have replaced the obvious maintenance parts that every vehicle will need replaced. Brakes, tie rod ends, sensors...general items. We have owned 2 different lincolns and they always seem to have a issue with the Air Ride system. The last one we replaced the air bags with shocks, cheap and easy fix. This one we really have not had to do anything to it. It has the Air light on, and we have ordered new air bags to go under it. They too are a easy replace. All in all this car is absolutely the most amazing car. People look at me different when I pull up to the Fire house with it...but when I tell them I have over 300k on it and the transmission and motor have never had to be worked on...they quiet up. This car has traveled to see family 13 hours away several times, the seats are amazingly comfortable. I am currently trying to find another vehicle and there are not hardly any vehicles that can compete with what I have. Just really sucks because I know it will not last forever...just not sure if I can find a suitable replacement too. Lincoln did it right when they made this car.
When my husband purchased this care for me, I was surprised, I put the car on the highway the same day...I was impressed about the performance and gas mileage, it handled the road very well. When my husband is driving, I feel like I'm sitting in the living room, not to mention I'm five eleven (Head room a plus). Our kids enjoy the space in the back seat and the pull down cup console. Just unbelivable. I thought it was a granny car, but I soon found out...This is the car for me. My husband is searching for one for himself.
