1997 Lincoln Mark VIII 2dr Coupe


The rated fuel economy must be average city and highway. When I put it on cruise control at 45mph on the long stretch between Gulf Breeze and Ft. Walton the instant mpg was touching 40mpg. Cruising at ~70 on the highway usually gets me around 27mpg, lately, and the engine is barely ticking over 2000rpm to do so. I prefer my old 93 to my 97, though, it seemed to be assembled with a higher standard.

Best Features

Neon tail light, "power dome" hood, HID headlamps, wrap around dash (makes you feel as if the car is embracing you.)

Worst Features

Too late for that. Would be nice to see them actually continue the Mark (Hot Rod Lincoln) series instead of profaning it with SUVs and Saloon cars.
