I own a 2010 Acura TL that I purchased new and when I go on long trips I take the Lincoln. I love the ride and quietness this car has. I also love the beautiful body style. Very Luxurious look. I read other reviews here about road noise and wind noise and I laugh. The only thing wrong with this car is that the Idiots at FORD discontinued making it.

Awesome Town Car

Awesome big American V8 sedan. Roomy seats, smooth ride, and nice speakers for a stock car. Average 20 mpg and thats mixed driving in Houston, Tx. Car was bought used so it did had some small scratches, driver seat small tear and some plastics in the interior coming loose. However it did fail once, the IAC valve failed and made my car accelerate on its own and that just 97,000 miles so I think Lincoln should be aware. But easy fixed and running fine again so problem. Despite some minor interior the car is durable on the road. It can handle bumping roads fine, good torque power in uphill and can take on off-road as well. I'm happy with my Lincoln Town Car

Best family car overall ever built in my opinion

This is my 7th Towncar since 1992. It is superior to my 92,95,97,96,99 and 01.All it take is just a little maintenance and they will last seemingly forever. All my others were great and we still have 3 in the family. I have also had 5 Mark VIII's which were also fine cars. The greatest single description I believe is the dependability. Can't be beat.

After a roll over crash in a SUV I have been a big fan of large sedans. Have owned a 1994 Crown Vic, and a 1999 Town Car Signature in the past. Last week I purchased a 2004 Towncar Ultimate with 53K miles on it. Whom ever owned it took good care of it as it looks like brand new. Without question the most comfortable vehicle I have ever ridden in with luxury featurs galore. I am disappointed to hear that Lincoln is planning to discontinue this model. That would be a big mistake. I love this car.

great car, used

This car is the Lincoln Town Car Ultimate Palm Beach Edition. What a car! It attracts constant admiration and comments. It is maroon with a half stone white top. It is one of the best cars I've ever had in the 50+ years Iv'e driven. Quiet, smooth riding and handling. When I pass a slower car even my grandchildren are impressed with the pickup. The stereo is magnificent. I like especially the remote trunk and the easy to adjust clock. I have gotten up to 27 miles to a gallon, normal is 25.4. I've had Packards, Cadillacs, and Chryslers over the years. Nothing comes close to the Lincoln in quality and dependability, and I've had 7.

I just purchased my first Town Car used and I love it. More than enough trunk space, gas mileage is OK for a V8, and I must admit that it's the most comfortable car I've ever owned. It's like driving a Lazy Boy recliner. The town car is surprisingly easy to drive for a big body car. When I'm ready to trade this one in I'll definitely buy another!

This is my third Lincoln. I purchased 1994, 1997 and 2004, all used. Great investment. The 2004 Ultimate is the best I have had. it had low miles 25k when I bought it. So far I can't stay out of it. It's just too much fun to drive. I'm retired (69) and plan on making several long trips. I get compliments from all my friends how nice the vehicle looks, rides and its economy. Hope to live long enough to buy another. I rate it as a ten!

This one took all of five miles to get comfy in. The amenities are quite sufficient and, if I ever read the book, may be astounding. Quietly powerful with understated beauty--essentially invisible to speed traps and such. Respectable.

This car is like sitting in your living room. Rides beautiful. I bought it because it's a fact that these cars will last well over 350,000 miles. Not bad gas consumption either for an eight cylinder. If I had the money I would by my in-laws a brand new one. Last years of life should be special for them.

Bought 2004 LTC in 2005. Love this car because: Dimensions are palatial. Ride is unparalleled. Easy to pass slowpokes. Good gas mileage for 4,500 Sedan. Very nice to look at - proud to own. Power everything. The funny thing about all the editors reviews is that they all say the car basically stinks. But most people who actually buy them love them. I wonder why that is. I wouldn't drive anything else. By the way the Mercury Grand Marquis is not a poor man's Town Car. The Marquis is a good, solid car, but the Lincoln Town Car easily outclasses the Marquis.

They score 5 in all categories. In my opinion they are the best car made. I have owned 8 since 1985 and have never had anything go wrong or not work and the only money I have spent on them is for Oil and Filter changes. No brakes, no batteries,no tires, no anything has been required on any of them.I have been retired and not driven the 2004 much. The others,I used in my business and drove them 60k to 70k before I traded. Their list price is high--but you can buy on for cash for about 70% drive out the door.

This is the most reliable and trouble free sedan I have ever owned. It is large but quite easy to drive and park.The car is super comfortable on a long trip. I have had excellent dealer service experiences. The one improvement I could suggest is a full sie spare tire for it. It is roomy inside, and has a large trunk. I have never owned or rode in a car that rides as good as the Lincoln Town car. My daughter bought it new but wanted a smaller car. I got it from her with very low miles. I will definitely buy another one.

Great car- rides like a dream and leaves the driver with practically no sense of fatique after very long drive times-up to 12 hours. The rate of depreciation in two years from $48,000 to $23,000 is a real negative on early replacement.

My grandfather drove a Town Car for many years and now I know why. Big, roomy, comfortable, and safe. Gas mileage isn't great (20.9) but then it only needs 87 octane gas. At 32, I am one of the younger Town Car drivers, but I wouldn't drive anything else. Absolutely love it for cruising the open highway (we go up north quite a bit), windows up or down. The sound system, even the default one, is better than most home stereo systems.

I have purchased (3) Lincoln Town Cars 1987, 1993 and the 2004 is the worse of the lot. The wind noise at the door on the driver side is terrible. The inside cabin is noisy and the seats are very un-comfortable. I would never thought in my wildest dreams, that Lincoln would put out such a disgrace. I am not getting any satisfaction from Ford Motor Co. The fuel cap light would stay on and the rear of the car needed adjusting. (Lowering)

I have owned and driven it for one year with absoultely no problems. I have made 3 trips of 1150 miles and find the car very quiet and comfortable. Honest milage is 14 to 16 city and 24 to 26 highway. Recent gas fill ups of 16 to 17.5 gallons range from $37. to $40. dollars. Car burns regular fuel and does not require any oil between 6 month service interval's. Overall it's been an excellent vehicle.

This is my 4th Town Car since 1985. The 1985 and 1988 were very similar and excellent cars. The 1996 was also an excellent car with a newer design. My 2004 is now the newest design and is beautiful to look at from the outside. But, the easy driving/handling of the older models is gone. This soft floaty ride is the major reason I spend the money on this expensive car - along with long term reliability (all previous cars have been driven 150k+ miles) - but this new model now has the "Euro-car" ride which I find rough. I do not want to "feel the rode" as it is put these days. I want to "float along." I will be looking for a cheaper next car - I find nothing in this model worth the $$$.

Looks and feels like a luxury car. I thought the rating writeup I found a few frames back on this website was a poor writeup. I didn't buy this car to "scratch off" from stoplights or careen thru the twisties. I bought it float over bumps and feature styling that doesn't all look alike with German cars and many Japanese cars.

I purchased a 2003 Lincoln Signature last year. I have noted a significant amount of wind noise coming from both front doors. I have had the car back to the dealership, a Ford Tech Rep drove the car, and correspondence with Ford Customer Satisfaction group in Dearborn have resulted in no seeming concern or help to resolve this irritating condition. Ford has said this is normal for this car. I find that hard to believe for a new supposed luxury car. However, they seem to have washed their hands of the matter offering no help. In addition, I seem to have soft brakes which again has been diagnosed as normal. And, the AM radio has poor reception.

This is the 3rd lincoln towncar we've owned plus one on lease. I find the extra horsepower with this touring sedan to be fun to drive, it seems to handle the road better somehow. the lower fuel economy, at best 19 mpg could be better, however i'm satisfied. However at my age I hope this car will last me 75,000 miles, by then we'll both be worn out.

The car is superb! This is what a full size luxury car is all about, not a mid size or compact foreign brand but a true full size American piece of iron. But the reviewers at Edmunds have forgotten the true purpose of a vehicle like the Town Car. The fit and finish of exterior metal is excellent as is the interior. Quite, comfortable, lots of space, descent MPG, more then adequate get-up-and go at a fraction of the price of a Deville. Caddy, eat your hear out! Edmunds, I little more objective reviewing, please.

The car rides like a dream, is extremely quiet, and responds with more than adequate power when needed. I am tall, so I find the leg room and the head room very spacious. I do love the car.

One feature that I think is great is that when I am backing up, if anything is behind me, (person, car, garbage can, etc.) an alarm goes off. The closer I get to it, the louder and more pronounced it gets. I will NEVER back into anyone or anything. It is a very smooth and quiet car. I am a very tall person and can sit in the back seat with no problems. The only complaint I have is regarding the sound system of the radio and CD player. For a car as nice as the 04 Lincoln, the radio should sound like a Bose radio. In closing, I am sure that we will never buy anything.

The Dealer network service for this car is wonderful. Have yet to have a problem. The car is wind tight, rides wonderfully and is very quiet. The fit and finish on the exterior is perfect. Believe me, I've been over this car with a fine tooth comb.

Have owned Lincoln's since 1975 and would NOT drive anything else. The styling, comfort , quality and handling put the imports to shame. Buy American.

A great highway car - extremely comfortable. The handling is superb on the highway - but, a little sloppy on rough surfaced roads. The fuel economy is exceptional for a car of this size and weight. I am averaging about 25 - 26 MPG on the open highway ( where I do the bulk of my driving . I have owned six previous Lincoln Towncars - 1985, 1987, 1991, 1995, 1998 and a 2001 before the present Lincoln Towncar. These are great cars, I would definitely buy another Lincoln Towncar ! Highly reccommended.

Since 1982, we have owned and driven Lincoln Town Cars. Except for the last three years when we tried a Cadillac. The Cadillac was a nice vehicle BUT it WAS NOT the same as a Lincoln. We are much happier with the Lincoln Town Car than any other vehicle we have tried or driven. The comfort, amenities and safety features are top notch!

For a large car that can comfortably carry "full size" Americans and their baggage, this car is the tops. The ride is sikly smooth and quiet.

Like our Lincoln

My first town car was a 1995 exective. My 2nd town car a 2001 Signature which had all the bells and whistles. This past year my wife decided she want a new car. She wanted the Lincoln logo on the car plus the auto trunk closing. What the dealership failed to tells us that when we got our Signature Town Car is really was a downsize signature to an exective. Now I do not have but a single CD player with the worst sound system in it. You almost have to rise the volume to the extreme in order to hear the music. There are no auto seat adjusters for different drivers.

This is my 4th twn car. I like rear wheel drive, I believe it gives a much better ride. The 03 steering is much improved over other my other twn cars; front seats ,are more comfortable especially the back rest. The larger trunk is welcome back along with the self closing.

Impressed not only with the roominess but the very comfortable ride city as well as highway. Fuel economy is excellent for a large, 4400 lb. car. While not intended to be a 'sport' car, performance is more than adequate for most. The classical 'reserved'interior and exterior styling will appeal to conservative owners and will 'fit in' almost anywhere.

The ride and handling is much improved over previous models. The power is very good considering this is a regular gas engine (which is a plus in my opinion). I love the back up warning system. The only negative I have is the clock. Hey Ford, stop using 22 year old fresh out of college designers to design a vehicle purchased by 60 year olds. The clock is way too small and the background colors make it hard to see. Your designers should try reading the clock while wearing sunglasses. Next time design a clock that is at minimum 3" in diameter.

Nothing rides like a lincoln!

Great ride, I always have loved Lincoln's air ride. Seats are comfortable and spacious, Cup holders are an improvement. Heated seats and gps are quality.

This car was ready to drive out of the dealership. The Hiway road feel and quiet operation is matched by it's economic operation. 22 mpg during the first 350 mile round trip is good for this heavy comfortable vehicle while driving at very high speeds.

At $44000 out the door, this car is beautiful to look at and to drive as it should. The attention to details from Lincoln's engineering/R&D is very impressive. The navigation system is one of the best. It saves time and is very efficient and accurate. The trunk is more than adequate and the optional trunk organizer is handy however it only comes in one color. The many safety features of the Lincoln Town Car give you a sense of well being. The quiet power train combo is well matched and its performance is more than adequate to move the 4500 pound vehicle. After a stress full day at work, I look forward to the drive home.

Lincoln Towncar has been a pleasure to own and drive. Only two repairs required since purchase, both minor, and fixed at no cost by dealer promptly.

Really pleased with the 2003 Town Car ... the only thing that would make me give it up is if they introduce a V10.

I find the equipment in this car much better than the years previous. But this car is still light years behind it's compatition. Too many things left undone. The seats in this vehicle are horrible, also, the wind noise can drive you insane. Navigation equipment and a phone system should be standard equipment on this car -- GM has the edge. I am a loyal customer to lincoln, but it will not take much for me to join the compatition.

This car was great on our family trip to Chicago, Illinois from Buffalo, New York. In spite of the fact that it had the interior look of a senior citizen's car, the ride was a dream. Five passengers were comfortable on the 12 hour trip!!
