1997 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series 4.6 liter V8 engine from North America
Love it, Ford is the best
Nothing really has gone wrong with the car so far, as I just got it, but I do know that the previous owner said the air ride system went, and they replaced them with OEM Firestone air bags and a new compressor. I don't know if these are really OEM or not, but they still work great none the less.
I love the car. Would buy another one in a heart beat.
I am 17 years old, and this is my second Town Car. The other one is an '89 with 89000 miles on it, and I bought this '97 so I didn't have to put miles on the '89.
However, I never drove it in the snow, but people tell me they go great in the snow, but I don't know about the 97's because I know they are much lighter; if you know about this, please advise me.
But other than that, I love it, love the old one, and would buy another in a heartbeat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have owned 3 Lincolns, 2 of them 97's. They are absolutely horrible in the snow because of the uneven weight distribution. A heavy V8 in the front and light weight sheet metal in the rear. Pick up a set of snow tires just for the rear, and put about 250 pounds of sand in the trunk, and you'll be fine. The softer composition of the tires with the additional weight are an affordable quick fix to the issue of ice and snow.
I agree! Slow down and be an alert smart driver! Money can't buy that!
