1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC 4.6 InTech V8 from North America
Not a fit for 6 foot, 250 pound me
Brakes still vibrate during stops even with new quality rotors and pads all around. Replaced both HID headlamp bulbs myself for $320 for two bulbs!
Seats caused back pain until they were replaced with modified 1976 seats. Steering on LSC requires too much effort. Not enough headroom with sliding sunroof. LSC ride is too bumpy. No rear legroom or headroom for my buddies. Seats too low to the floor. Not good for long road trips. Not "fun" to drive on winding roads or freeway. Steering wheel does not telescope. Big transmission console takes up too much legroom. I should have bought a Gran Prix coupe instead which does fit me. For someone well under 6 feet tall this car could be a blast. It is at home on the freeway at speeds over 80 MPH, gets 17 MPG, clocked 0-60 MPH in 7.9 sec, great CD, super engine, great electrical/computer systems, impossible to spin on dry road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I must disagree, the seats in my '97 LSC are more than comfortable, and once the traction controlled is turned off the wheels will spin with ease. My steering wheel is in perfect condition with 85,000 miles. The Mark VIII is a great car and I would recommend the car to anyone.
