1993 Lincoln Mark VIII 4.6 from North America
Best used car value out there
The alternator went out at 73,000 miles The alternator went out again at 80,000 miles, however it was replaced free by the mechanic who replaced it. Buttons on the climate control are cracked. There is a mysterious rattle coming from the right rear of the car that I can't seem to locate. The torque converter has developed a shudder at 84,000 miles.
The car is very comfortable and it has 280 horsepower. I always get comments on the well designed interior. The headlights on the 93 to 95's are very poor, most will need to add a set of driving lights.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

There is a small rubber bushing that holds the top of the rear strut. This bushing breaks and lets the strut rattle. Replace the bushing ($10 part) and eliminate the rattle.
I just bought a '93 Mark VIII with 98K miles on it, and am very interested in your collected comments. I can't wait to open it up on the highway. A couple things I'm having my mechanic look at that you all might have experience with: the overdrive switch doesn't engage, the radio (doesn't have 10-CD changer) doesn't work even though it's plugged in (probably just get a new one), the buttons are cracked on the AC unit. Any suggestions? -MarkE.
