1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 2dr Coupe


Purchased the LSC in 2007 at 112K miles. Had already had tie rods, links, and front bushings replaced around 70K. Replaced $400 A/C tube at 122K; wheels around 140K due to excessive corrosion; tie rods and stabilizer links again at 150K. Powertrain control module went at 155K ($2000). Ran fine until 175K at which point the PCM went out again. Can't and won't replace it a second time. Despite having to put some real money into the car to keep it running I have enjoyed almost every minute of driving. Its design is centered around the driver and a responsive driving experience. If you can find one with less than 100K, buy it, drive it, then sell it before it starts to fall apart.

Best Features

Very responsive throttle despite its size and weight, smooth ride, cockpit is designed to put everything in driver's reach, comfortable interior, good gas mileage (22 avg / 27 highway)

Worst Features

More use of aluminum panels (no rust).

Confused... PCM module is only 150 bucks.. So.. Why did you pay 2000 ?
