2006 Lincoln Town Car Signature 4.6 V8 from Sweden
Beautiful luxo-barge made with longterm potential
Rear axle ran dry.
Aircon compressor died.
Foot well fans burnt out.
Headlight seal no longer seals.
It is an adventure and a crime of passion to buy an exotic vehicle like this here in Sweden, and I did it because I am crazy. Ask anyone, they'll agree.
But I do believe these cars have an excellent reputation for durability, which is what gave me the courage for the purchase. I hope that any part I replace will be worth it, and that this car will be with me for decades. It is mounted on a ladder frame, and has amazing safety scores for everything, plus it weighs over two tons - all that is very reassuring.
Suspension comfort and engine smoothness are amazing, and the car feels wonderful on long distance trips. Seats are sofa-soft and may seem unsupportive to Europeans, but I like it that way. Don't expect Jaguar/Rolls Royce/Mercedes levels of trim refinement; under some scrutiny, the interior looks all cobbled together from cheap toy grade injection moulded plastic, so put your pink glasses on and enjoy the ride instead, which is legend.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
