2001 Lincoln Town Car Executive Series 8 cylinder
Town Car the epitome of an American luxury car
The car had a paint imperfection on the rear quarter panel. It was repainted by the dealer (covered under warranty).
The computer that controls shifting of the automatic transmission had to be reprogrammed(covered under warranty).
No other issues.
This car was selected as a family car and an alternative to leasing another SUV or mini van. It has served this purpose beyond my expectations. The lease is almost up and I am considering purchasing the vehicle.
It is extremely comfortable, quiet and luxurious.
Excellent highway cruiser.
The engine and transmission is smooth yet responsive.
The trunk is huge.
Easy to drive around town considering its size.
Reliable and ranks high for safety.
Excessive brake dust on rims (always need to be cleaned)
Could use a little more horsepower (this was done in 2002 or 2003)
Fuel consumption is a little excessive and worse than expected.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own an 01' Town Car Executive and I find the fuel economy to be exceptional. I recently took a 500 mile trip and averaged 28 mpg acording to the car's onboard computer. Great car!

I'm glad you like it. I'll bet you have aluminum wheels, yes they do show brake dust a lot, more than chrome wheels.
