1982 Lincoln Mark VI 302
Bargain luxury cruiser
Heater leaked soon after I got it. I spent half a day getting the unit out, and found someone had gone to the same trouble, and just stuffed filler around the leak and put it back! I had it re-cored.
Oil pick up tube broke at 140000 miles.
Rear springs replaced at 150000 miles.
Central locking played up; I removed the relay, cleaned up the points, and had no more trouble.
Drivers window motor failed, swapped for one of the rear ones.
No question, the most comfortable car I ever owned, for quietness, seat comfort and ride quality.
Performance was adequate, it seemed slow when I first had it, but it was so quiet I didn't realise at first that it was quicker than I thought.
All the toys worked; I particularly liked the digital dash.
It had surprisingly good handling as well; not like a sports car, but better than I expected from a large car like this.
It had reasonable fuel economy too, 22 mpg overall (according to the digital dash).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
