good long ride
By tmoore on


1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 2dr Coupe


Bought this Mark with 65000 on it, now
have 95000. It is a good ride for my
170 mi/day commute. I'm getting over
25mpg on the hi-way. Car looks great,
timeless design. Drivers seat starting
to show wear. Would have liked to have
option to have both cassette and CD
player. back seat pockets are nets,
cheaper looking than in 97. Didn't see
significant difference in LSC and
standard, didn't feel it driving
either. Guess the dual exaust is about
it. Had to repair the steering wheel,
ouch. thousands of parts many motors,
many bucks.

Best Features

looks. smooth ride. comfortable seat. sound system (except no cassette option). Good steering response.

Worst Features

It shifts early to second on in town hills making it lug. Coat hanger won't stay on slanted hooks in back. Needs higher quality seat pockets. Really needs traction improvement on wet ground.
