In response to review Written by: Vance on 09/03/2009, I also experienced this same situation with my Town Car. After four trips to the dealer over a three month span, and several different attempted solutions, the fix was to replace the fuel pump / fuel float device. This change solved the performance problems, smoothed out the ride and improved gas mileage. To their credit, Lincoln never stopped trying to solve the problem and made me a happy customer and proud owner of this fine vehicle.
This is Lincoln number nineteen for me and no, I'm not 100 years old! I have driven this car for up to 14 hours at a time with absolutely no fatigue while obtaining 27+ mpg. I've tried it in other cars (namely, my wife's Jaguar, the BMW that preceded it, and a Cadillac I purchased once in a moment of temporary insanity) and I'll take the Lincoln anytime. Sure, other cars have lots of fancy technology. Would be great if it worked, which has not been my experience. Like I said, I've had 19 Lincolns and have never been stranded by a single one of them, nor even had a major repair for that matter. I'm 52 years old and hope they keep building them for as long as I live!
Purchased a used 2008 in 2011 with 33,000 miles - problems with Napleton in West Palm - but calls to corp. and Lincoln corp. seem to soften the aggravation. Now in July 2015 we are running up a BIG BILL at the Ford/Lincoln dealership with needed repairs. Seems the fuel gauge, fuel pump, fuel lines, battery and now A/C fan all need to be replaced at more than $2000 dollars...We love the car and will do it but WHY? Always brought in car for check ups and...and everything seemed fine - always got gas at Costco and problems started right afterwards....wondering here???
