1997 Lincoln Town Car signature 4.6 from North America
Buy them when they are a few years old for a song
Cracked intake manifold resulting in coolant leak. Ford split coast of repair despite being out of warranty.
Drivers side heated leather seat does not work
700.00 to replace cover with built in element.
The Lincoln is a good car, but because of it's complexity and numerous features things can and will go wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

"The Lincoln is a good car, but because of it's complexity and numerous features things can and will go wrong". You are absolutely right. If things don't go wrong how can Ford make even more money. This is what happens when you fall in love with your car. Its bizarre when you take comfort with others when they have the same Ford problem. Anybody out there receive "Ford therapy"?

I don't think they were making a judgement on quality. I think they were just saying that with all the seemingly needless sensors and such, there's a lot of little things that can break. I know from experience, my '94 Town Car has had $2000+ in repairs in the past year due to failing sensors, air suspension, and misc. other problems. But then again, I was a bit anal about keeping everything running like new. The transmission started slipping on it in the past month, so I'm going to be forced to sell it before more debt occurs. LOL.
