Love this car, after ten years...

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 2dr Coupe


It is a classic style that everyone likes and fun to drive. Only major repairs were front ti-rods replaced and finding replacement HID Headlamps which Ford is no longer manufacturing and none to be found. Had to spend $650 for a headlamp retrofit kit, plus $250 labor to have headlights that work. Difficult to find certain parts since Ford no longer makes this vehicle. Shame on Ford!

Best Features

Style, drive and color (pearlescent ivory) Great sound system and auto readouts, auto mileage check. 17 mpg around town, 25 highway on regular gas!

Worst Features

Ford designed the HID headlamps specifically for this vehicle. Sylvania ceased mfging these headlamps over 2- yrs ago afterFord quit making Mark VIII's..none to be found & owners on junkyard lists for this item..Ford needs to mfg a replacement. Retrofit kits tend to jar easily, blinking lights off.
