let's see if I got this right. there's a brochure on the 2008 town car, although it (08 town car) isn;'t so much as mentoned in the latest Lincoln brochure I've seen. My salesman say's they are around, but he doesn't have one and there aren't any to be seen in my zip code. other people say Lincoln makes them, but none of these people have seen one or know where to get one' There's a picture of the "new" Lincoln town car to the right of this post, but that ain't a real one and, it kinda looks like an 07.. Sounds like smoke and mirrors to me.

Why don't you simply ask the dealer whether he can order one? If he can't then that answers the question. There are plenty of 2007's around as well as 2006's. Nothing has changed on them. Ford has a market for these cars in the livery business. There are hundreds of them just in the New York City area. Apparently Ford could care less whether or not you buy one because they only have one model available (plus the L) and they aren't advertising them.. With a limited supply of Lincoln Town Cars you aren't going to find a surplus of 2008's at every dealer. There might be some at big Lincoln/Mercury dealers. They may have to be special ordered. It is obvious that Ford is not pushing them but since there IS a catalog for them and Ford has a Lincoln web site that describes them I assume that they can be ordered. I'll look around for a 2007 when I'm ready so availability of an identical 2008 is not relative.
#1653 of 1806 WILL THER BE A 2009 TOWN CAR
Apr 14, 2008 (9:28 pm)
My 2005 Signature Limited only has 29,000 miles on it but am wondering what is happening to Town Car as the 2009 model year approaches. On the positive side, my Town Car gets around 29 miles to the gallon in highway driving which to me is a great fuel economy for such a comfortable and luxurious car. I also own a Cadillac DTS which only gets a little over 26 miles per gallon on highways. The Cadillac is not nearly as comfortable for me but I do like them both. I am hoping Lincoln is making enough on Town Car to keep it in production for 2009. If anyone knows please post so we will know.

How are you getting 29 mpg? The best I have gotten on my 2002 is 26.5 mpg on flat ground on interstate going through Alabama and Mississippi near the coast on flat land.

29 MPG is a regular average for me in my 2005 T.C. in highway driving.
I am light on braking if there is no one behind me which I'm sure saves fuel and brakes. My DTS gets around 26.5 on the highway but weighs 400 lbs. less than T.C. I use regular fuel in T.C. and premium in DTS. At 29 MPG average I really don't feel I need a hybrid but hope they will be adapted to T.C. if the model remains in the Lincoln lineup. I was getting an average of about 30 MPG on my 2004 Deville so am disappointed about the drop in fuel economy in the 2006 model, think it has something to do with gear ratios.

I guess I'll give up on the Town Car and look around for a year old DTS when I want to replace my 2003.. It is obvious with one model and no navigation system that the Town Car is no longer competitive and I don't want to buy an orphan. I get 31-33 MPG on my 2003 DeVille and it only has 64,000 miles on it so I'll probably keep it for another couple of years. It has been totally dependable. Hopefully Cadillac will replace its 2000 body in the next few years and offer something new and different. I was very interested in the Town Car but Ford doesn't seem to be.. I think that it is highly doubtful that there will be a 2009 Town Car unless you happen to be a livery fleet operator in New Jersey.
#1657 of 1806 sure glad I got mine

I just finished a trip to newport beach and the 2007 town car, as always, performed greatly. I would drive the heck out of it even if it got 10 miles per gallon. Can't mention a cadillac and a town car in the same breath. How many Lincoln limos do you see and how many cadillac limos do you see. those people that make a living driving people around make a strong statement about the car. GM will probably be belly up pretty soon, just got passed big time by Toyota, damn I should have bought Toyota stock, still think I will. Town cars rule,

Glad you are so happy with your Town Car, I like mine too. When I take my DTS out I enjoy it for different reasons than my Town Car. The T.C. has so far been far more reliable, the DTS has many good features too. It would be a difficult choice if I for any unexpected reason had to part with one or the other. Toyota stock is currently around $ 100 dollars a share, down from around $ 140 so you might do well to buy the stock. Ford stock went up more than 10 % today based on the fact that the company made a profit in the first quarter, I suspect Ford will temporarily pull back and you should strongly consider a purchase of Ford Motor as I think there is an improving set of circumstances with the company.

I am having a similar problem, I reset the climate control according to your instruction and the blower but did not see any Code, but the blower worked just for one day.
I kept reseting but nothing is happening.
So what is the problem... Blend door actuator or A/C relay/sensor?
Please advise.. and thanks
#1660 of 1806 93 Town Car door lock problem

1993 Town Car door locks work if you are inside the car (manually), but when you exit the driver door, you are not able to lock driver door, even with key. The door panel is removed and don't know what to look for to repair or replace.
