A Great Deal!

Vehicle2003 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewI bought my 2003 Executive used with 68,000 miles on it.
It is pearl white with tan leather interior.
I had trouble with water leaking in through air intake under passenger wiper. I repaired with automotive adhesive glue and sealed the joint with undercoating spray.
That fixed it.
I also had trouble with hesitation.
I took it to the local Lincoln dealership and for just under $500, a tune-up and transmission fluid made it drive like a new car.
I am at 143,000 miles and plan to keep it at least 90,000 more miles (new Michelins).
I added in-dash navigation, satellite radio, and bluetooth.
This is my fifth Lincoln and fourth Town Car.
I will have another, no doubt.
Best FeaturesThis car gets 29 to 30 mpg on highway with ac driving at 60 mph. In town is about 15-18. This car is quiet, roomy, and very comfortable. The interior is very tasteful. At 143,000 miles there are no rattles, squeaks, or wind noise. I keep it polished and the paint still looks new. I condition the leather with high quality products. The interior also looks new. Maintenance is extremely affordable, unlike my relatives' BMW's, Audi's, and Mercedes. A set of tires costing $700 will last 90,000. Compared to low profile tires, that is a steal. May not be a sporty looking car, but with all the value, if I want to be cool, I'll wear my fedora and Ray Bans.
Worst FeaturesIf Lincoln was to continue this model, I would suggest beefing up the air conditioning. After a charge it is cool enough. I keep it covered or in shade on very hot days. If I start out with an interior that has not been exposed to direct sunlight, the air conditioning keeps car very comfortable on days up to 106 degrees. I had a 2002 Grand Marquis LS and the air conditioner was a freezer. I could hang meat in August in that car! I hear newer Town Cars have colder air conditioners.
