Town Car at half price?
In 80,000 miles, the front brakes have been replaced three times.
I drive 40,000 miles per year as a traveling salesperson, and this is the most comfortable car I have ever owned.
The car exudes a feeling of high quality and attention to detail, and most, if not all, of the interior pieces are very solidly constructed.
My favorite features are the set-it-and-forget-it air conditioning, power seats, and the digital dashboard with fuel economy and trip mileage calculator.
The only thing I would add would be an in-dash CD player and heated seats (leather gets very cold in the winter). Also the power outlet needs to be relocated outside of the ashtray (very inconvenient for charging a cell phone).
The optional traction control is a must-have for any kind of winter driving.
This car handles very well for being so ridiculously huge, while delivering a creamy smooth, dead quiet ride. The pick-up that the V8 offers is excellent. For maximum performance look for the handling & performance package.
Gas mileage hovers around 25 on the highway and 15-16 in the city.
My only issue with the car's performance are the brakes. Although they function very well, the car seems to eat rotors and pads.
The car now has 100,439 miles and runs like new. My car has required only, aside from the brakes, normal maintenance, and has rewarded me with ironclad reliability and plush comfort.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
