1997 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series 4.6 Liter V8 from North America
Good car, but the problem with the manifold has caused me to look at other luxury cars.
The air suspension went out requiring replacement. The air suspension was replaced with the steel coil kit. It is far superior to the air suspension even when the car was new.
The plastic intake manifold cracked requiring an expensive repair job that cost $1,400.00. I have since filed charges against Ford Motor Company with the Texas State Attorney Generals Office and joined a class action lawsuit.
The car rides very comfortably with the new steel coil suspension I had installed.
Very good fuel mileage for a car of this size and power.
Acceleration is good, but I would prefer about 40 more horsepower.
The leather is still is supple condition after 129,000 miles and the car still looks showroom new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

So where do I get in on this class-action lawsuit against FOMOCO about the cracking intake manifolds?

I am a Texas resident and I have not been able to locate any class action suits against Ford Motor Company regarding the cracking intake manifold issue. There is one suit pending in California and one in Mobile County, Alabama. If anyone has any information about how to join an existing class action suit in Texas against Ford Motor Company please provide us all with the attorney's contact information.
