The Town Car does not Blue Tooth. It does not have a navigation system. It does ride like a dream boat. My wife and I have taken it to Mesa, AZ several times and after 3 days of driving (1,667 miles) we are still as rested as when we left Peoria, IL. The car has never given me any trouble. It still looks like new. It is garaged every single night. I love my Town Car. It's too bad Lincoln no longer makes them. They are a well manufactured automobile and I recommend it highly.

The only reason that I'm getting rid of this car is because it is 10 years old. I lost my wife on August 6, 2015 and my children are scattered between where I live and Arizona. Once I am over the grieving, I intend to travel to see them. I just want a more modern vehicle to use. That is why I insisted on a navigation system being part of the car.

I currently own a modified turbo BMW but I wanted a classy, comfortable and reliable car that I can just drive without attracting (the wrong) attention. The TC delivers because it's just the opposite of my BMW. Relaxed (not lazy) large V8 vs high strung turbo 6. Soft comfy suspension vs stiff "feel every bump" coil-overs. Easy to work on, cheap parts vs convoluted (genius though it may be) design with expensive parts. While my 2-door BMW is truly a great sports car, and I love everything about it, sometimes I just want to CHILL OUT while driving. The trunk easily swallows a mini-fridge and more, and RWD is always a win for me. 160K w only minor issues. I love both cars for different reasons

First Lincoln!!!!!!! Heaven on wheels.

Seats are so comfortable, not even a Cadillac compares to its seats that you soak right into, doesn't even come close to comfort. has lots of room in it, LOVE the deep trunk, nothing comes close. Always wanted a Lincoln. MPG is unbelievable for a car like that, 26-29 MPG going 70 MPH. If you think their gas hogs, think twice. Will definitely buy another Lincoln again. Driving this car is a huge delight. I highly recommend this car, you won't be sorry.

i have had 4 experiences of brake pedal travel so great that foot feed is pushed down at time of braking , this causes full engine power. i complained many times. i finally cured problem by putting 1/4 inch shims under left foot feed control at fire wall mount and 1/4 in at foot pedal mount.this moves the foot pedal away from brake and stops the problem. i this to showed to dealer.

Bought the car used from the dealer that sold it brand new. Gentleman that owned it before our purchase was buying his 2008 model Town Car when we walked in...lets say his trade was not on the lot for long. We bought it that same day. It is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever driven, and gets very good fuel economy on the highway (averaged 32 mpg on recent trip to NJ and back to VA) I would suggest purchasing used, the car is phenomenal, but does not hold value at all. Then gent that traded this one in paid 52,000 for a new one.. our price for a 3 year old car with 27,000 miles on it... 17,995. So I think we got a good deal.

Love these full size frame constructed Fords. Fantastic mileage (23.9 avg), tremendous safety, nice smooth ride. No electrical gremlins like the Cadillac suffer from. Plastic trim is a bit cheap looking, but overall the interior is extremely nice and the fit is good. Sold my 2003 Navigator and moaned for weeks about not having a Lincoln in the "stable", so this one is replacing my 2002 Crown Vic as my highway car.

Always wanted a big luxury car, and a Town Car or DTS/Deville. Found this 05 TC and fell in love with it when I took it for a test drive. I have tinted windows and gives it the look of a limo. I'm not the typical TC owner, but to me it rides and drives like a dream. On the road, it floats, seats are like my recliner at home, CD player is awesome, the reverse sensors come are a life saver when backing up. The clock in the center of the dash is just too cool looking! It's a great car, gets 25-28 mpg hwy, 23 city, can't beat that for a V8! So far not a single problem - and today that's rare.

My 80 year old dad had a minor accident that totaled his Buick. Put him in a used Town Car with only 31,000 miles for $15000. He and mom love this car. It is easy to drive and very comfortable. Dad has been impressed with the gas mileage and says that this is the best car he has ever owned. The people at their church think that he must have won the lottery. His last car cost more and was not nearly as plush. It runs very smooth and has plenty of power. I also enjoy driving the car, putting 6000 miles on it on a cross country drive with 4 people and luggage and still got 24 MPG. It is much more fun to drive than my brothers Lexus and much easier to get in and out of, very nice ride.

This is our second Town Car. The full- frame Fords, Mercurys and Lincolns are the absolute best ride on the road. We have two Jaguar XJ's, both are fun to drive, but the quietness and comfort don't even come close to our Lincoln. The trunk space is unbelievable too. Last trip we drove the newer Jag. Thought I'd need a crowbar and a stick of Dynamite to get our luggage out of the trunk. Highway mileage is good (24 MPG) for the size of the car.

After spending a month driving my mother in law Mercedes E class and then my my sister in law Accura, We were sick of the small car noise, cramped head room and low to the road feel. We call a cab to take us out to Dulles for the trip back west, we got in to the Limo and had the ride of our lives. I asked the driver what this incredible smooth beautiful car was and he said a Lincoln town car made in 2005. We went shopping for a Town car after selling the Suburban and think it is the best Luxury car I've owned. I've owned Mercedes, Accura, Sterling, Lexus and this is heads above them all. Thank God for the hordes loving the foreign car these car are just a great price for the ride

Fantastic car for the money. Bought ours used, 17,000 miles, for half the original price. Car does not hold value, but this is great for buying 1-year-old low mileage vehicle. Very comfortable on long trips, get up to 33 mpg on turnpike driving at moderate speeds, 21 mpg around town, both fantastic for a car this size. Great rearbackup warning system, love the 6- pack CD system. Problems: broken gas cap, broken center consule lid, lack of full-size spare (fixed by buying mag wheel with original tire and mounting in trunk!). Spare needed because took 3 days to get regular tire from dealer to replace ruined tire--imagine that out on a road trip! Car not perfect but fantastic buy bought used.

I purchased my 05 TC in 2007, with only 23K miles, so I got a steal of a deal. Would recommend purchasing used as such to allow for depreciation. I love this car, especially the newly designed grille--very striking and elegant, unlike the 99-02 jelly bean model. This new grille has 'teeth' and can be a menacing sight when viewed from anothers reaw view mirror.

This vehicle is very easy to get in and out of. The Signature Limited is the ticket. I am only missing the moonroof, which I don't really care about anyway. If you have to be in traffic, you will love the comfort and the dual a/c. I had 2 1997's (last year of old body style) and really had my reservations when the 98's came out, but the 2005 was pretty much redone. I agree that it needs more horsepower, maybe a 5.4 or turbo 4.6 somewhere in the range of 300 HP. The 238 HP is lacking when you got to get around a slower vehicle. The Towncar has always has been a great roadtrip vehicle. It could use less plastic in the interior...and it does use 87 octane gas.

This is my 12th Lincoln. I traded a 2005 Signature with 30,000 miles for a 2005 Signature Limited with 5800 miles. What a difference just kicking it up to the next trim level! More comfort in the seat, heated & memory seats, chrome wheels and the trunk goes all the way up instead of just cracking open in the base Signature and a much quieter ride. Much better stereo. Definitely worth the extra bucks.

We have owned 3 other T.C.'s but do not like the amount of road noise when on a concrete road. Too noisy for a luxury car. Also AC hits you in the face and is not easy to adjust. Seats are comfortable but not as good as previous models. I would definitely consider other luxury cars next time. Can't wait until our lease is over. It is not a good value.

I now have about 12,000 miles on my Lincoln. Traded in my E320 Benz to get it. Lincoln is superior in all respects. More comfortable, better price, better handling, no electrical problems (lots in Mercedes), burns regular fuel, two windshield wipers (one on the Benx) and so forth. Lower resale value, that is true. But who would want to sell it? This is the best car I've ever owned and I got it for a steal (internet deal). Why was I driving that stupid status symbol that kills my rear after a few hours? Wish I had bought this car years ago. The car is great--the problem is that Ford is too stupid to know how to market it.

As a livery company, Lincoln beats all other vehicles...there is no comparison. When we owned Cadillacs, we spent most of our time taking them to the dealer for electrical repairs. Admittedly, Lincoln HQ needs to do something about the service dealers. In order to get your car in and out, service writers require "money under the table" otherwise your car can sit for days or weeks. It is a corrupt system and demands attention.

This is a great highway cruiser. When taking long trips, or even short trips, its comfort cannot be matched. Fuel economy is decent for a large V-8 at about 23 MPG on the highway. Riding around town though, this car is big to park and can be hard to maneuver. Some of the fit and finish coulde be better too, for a car in this price range. Center caps on the wheels did not hold up at all, and had to be replaced, but that was largely a cosmetic concern. Chrome molding strips turn brown in the winter, which the dealer tells me is "normal." I don't know about that, but it does wash off.

I purchased my Town Car for several reasons, safety, the Michelin tires, comfort, and size. One month later, I was in a major accident. The back end of my car was majorly damaged, but I was uninjured. I feel extremely safe in it. The ride is so smooth and the car is so roomy and comfortable and I love the huge trunk. I only have 4500 miles on it so far, but I don't think I will ever purchase anything other than another Town Car.

This my second Town car, I had a 2003 previously. Prior to this, I had two Lincoln Continentals. The Town car is a very comfortable, quiet car for long trips. I also feel safe in the car. It's also very useful for transporting my golf buddies and the four golf bags. They also like the car. I never looked at another car. It was the Lincoln Town Car all the way.

This car is mainly for larger families, although it does have a fair engine; we have to keep in mind it's not a performer like a Cadillac. The ride is smooth, very nice interior, large trunk for your baggage and passengers. BUT here are the problem with Lincoln's; are very delicate. My dad's Town Car had major problem with the power window's, needed new stereo which was like around $1,000 -- leather quality is bad, I mean what kind of leather rips & tears off? When this car starts to give you problems be very well prepared because it will be costly, and dig deep into your pockets. Also the suspension on this car is belive it or not at $600.00. It's a good car, but I would suggest a Cadillac.

Unlike other persons that claim to own one of these cars, I actually do own one. My experience with Lincoln has been dissapointing actually, now I'm not going to say this is a bad car, infact its good - it's just not as luxury refined as a Lexus or Cadillac. Here is the problem with Loncoln's though many people will tell you, whenever a part needs to be replaced it is quite VERY costly to repair.from now on, I won't drive a Lincoln ever, ever again. Another downside of the car it's heavy - real heavy. Gas mileage is not pretty also. With only 18 mpg / and 23 highway driving. If your planning on buying a Luxury sedan, I would suggest to look at the Lexus LS430. Now this is 'the car' to have.

My experience with Lincoln has been real bad. The ride quality is 'good' but its' doesn't compare to Cadillac Deville or Lexus LS430. Had the alternator replaced at 20000 miles. Went to the mall and when I was going to ignite the engine the Key broke making the car unmoveable. Leather seats are cheap, they are now ripped. Now I am not going to say this is a bad car, infact it's good, it's not just not on the same level as Cadillac or Lexus. You can buy one if you want, its your money, but i WOULD suggest buying a Lexus LS430 NOW that is a true 'Luxury Drivers Car'.

The Towncar has a smooth ride and good leather and comfortable seats. In 10,000 miles there were no mecanical problems at all. How ever, my Uncle's 2001 Towncar has 40,000 miles on it and needed a new belt after 34,000. This car could be better. The quallity is good but not like a Lexus. The features are okay, the sound system is okay. I would buy a Lexus instead because this car is not the best luxury sedan, I payed to much.

I enjoy the cabin .The trunk is large and very convenient. The only problem is to lift heavy objects from the trunk - seems to require more adjustment.

The car is sluggish and transmission hesitates when pushed down to pass or when needed to come up hills. It does the same when using the Remote Control. The car seems to be in a wind tunnel after 30 miles per hour. The hissing sound coming from the driver's side is very annoying and together with the Michelin tires whining noise makes a long drive not too appealing. As you can see mileage is very low (4200). I use my wife's 95 Chevrolet Corsica more often than the Lincoln! Another thing is that the car sways everytime wind hits it on it's side. I'm planning trading this car in for another make. I'm totally unhappy with my 2004 Lincoln. Should have leased instead of buying.

This is a terrific car to drive. Very comfortable and easy to handle. Quiet ride, feels like a luxury car and is. I like the styling and the 17" wheels make for a smother ride. The interior has everything and then some. I will purchase another in a heartbeat.
