#1590 of 1806 Town Cars are Fords and that's good.

Hello all. I got my 03 tc 2 years ago and love it. My first Lincoln was my Dad's 71 Continental. Believe me, I can parallel park! I bought an 89 Town Car after that and loved it. Few problems (tranny and temp control). Wish I'd kept it. I owned a lot of other cars between and don't miss any of them except my BMW 2002s. Love those cars. SOOO small today though. I was shopping for other cars before I bought the 03 tc. I liked new Honda Accord coupes and used Infiniti Q45s, but when I ran across this car I just went out and bought it. I'm not good at buying and selling cars. From reading the forums, I guess I'm not alone. It's such a pita. Anyway, the 03 tc is big, powerful and comfortable and I like that. Plus good gas mileage on regular gas. Another plus is that it's basically the same car as a Ford Crown Vic or Mercury Marquis. Heck, I would've bought one of those if it had all the "bells and whistles". Love the leather (I have a hairy dog), stereo, atc, sunroof and I couldn't find other cars that offered that at the price. The ride is firm, almost truck like and I like that too. The old tc's did the front end bob up and down all the time so you felt like you were on a boat. I kind of like that old school ride though. All in all, I'm very happy with this car. I'll drive it til it drops. Thanks to our hosts for the automatic spell check and this site. The only probs I have are power steering pumps and minor squeaks. Town Cars Rock!

I read your message on here, and my hat's off to you for getting that '03 TC...
I've always considered the TC to be a retro vehicle for a forward thinking driver. Hope that makes sense to you. It sure does to yours truly. Where are you located, Jim? Get any snow? I always wonder how the TC handles on snow and icy streets, WITH its traction control. That's the only thing that I'm wary of with the TC. I've considered purchasing a CPO TC, '03 plus, and I really don't care if anyone thinks it's a grandpa's/grandma vehicle...I just dig its look. It may be old school, but along side some of today's vehicles this machine (the TC) looks and runs like a tank, so to speak...strong and ready to take on any type of street or road. Cool.
Town Cars DO rock, mate...They're da bomb...

Our '94 TC has made scores of ski trips on snow and ice from Mt. Bachelor to Whistler in the last 13 years & I've never had to hang iron. It has Michelins and Traction Control, however the 300 h.p. Mustang engine would be appreciated.
#1593 of 1806 Air suspension problems can any one help?
Dec 07, 2007 (8:31 pm)
I'm pretty sure that i blew an air line because both front wheels are touching the fenders just about, my question is does any one have a scamatic of where the airlines run or could any one draw it out for me and send it to starlitessoulyahoo.com i would be ever so grateful.
as for the question about the town car , mine is a 95 mark VIII and I fell in love with it the first time I drove it never felt more safe

I didn't know the Mark VIII had air shocks on the FRONT.
Our TC has them only on the rear. I recently replaced the front shocks with a pair of Bilsteins.
#1595 of 1806 Certified Town Car

Cadillac sells "Certified" cars that include a 100k 6 year (from date car was first put into service) bumper to bumper warranty. Is there something like this for "certified" used Lincoln Town Cars? Thanks!

What exactly is happening with the Town Car? The dealers don't even know or are not telling. You can't get a 2008 brochure. Is the Town Car being dropped totally or is it simply being built somewhere other than Wixom? Does anybody have any information? The Internet is worthless -can't find any facts. I read earlier on this Forum that there IS a 2008. Is there really?

I've read that the '08 TC WILL appear, on a limited basis, sometime after January, '08...maybe as late as February. Something to do with the plant where it's produced, but it doesn't bode well for this model's overall "future" I suspect.

Thanks for the note. I suppose that Lincoln as well as Cadillac will eventually downsize the DTS and Town Car into what will be a luxury mid-size car like the STS. I guess I'll start looking around for an '07 certified Town Car in the spring. I rode in an '05 Livery model with 209,000 miles on it earlier in the week in New Jersey and it rode like a new car so I'll keep my '07 till I drive it to the junkyard.

On another subject Bremertong, I've been looking at replacing the '03 Deville with an '07 certified TC after riding in three of them in NJ that had over 200,000 miles and rode like new cars -no squeaks, no rattles, dead quiet etc. Much quieter than my Deville. The thing that bothers me is the less front and rear legroom than the Deville. Have you had any problems with your TC vice the DTS that you have? Do the power pedals increase legroom? The cars in NJ had lots of rear seat space but I assume that they may have been L models. Even my '06 Impala (which I sold yesterday just to cut down one car) had more front legroom than the TC. I haven't driven a TC yet but would like your opinion. Do you see any real difference between it and your DTS? I don't have any problem with my Deville -it is fine. You had an older Deville too as I recall.
