the truth by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/12/2011. Trim: 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Is it just me or does anyone else notice that in recent years Kelly book continues to lower what they consider the value of an automobile? Like this Lincoln for instance. How can a vehicle with such high reviews and such high original sale price be worth only $4,000? I see a scam between kelly, banks and dealers going on here! Someone is trying to make money here by fooling the public. If I have caught onto this then others will as well. Any dealer would have a used mark VIII in good condition, marked at over $10,000 USED. Something fishy going on here!
Cons: only con here is Kelly book!...and whoever is in cahoots with them
Overall review: none

The best Luxury sports coupe ever. by Matej on 03/20/2008. Trim: 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Great performance and it hands down beat everything in its class for its time except the Jaguar which is much more expensive. It handles well with its auto air suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes. It will do a quarter mile run in 14.7 seconds if you wanted to put your foot down as well. The interior and 10 disc CD changer are also great features along with it 6 speaker JBL audio system. An all around GREAT touring car and comfortable for long trips.
Cons: Gas mileage in the city is about 17mpg but improves greatly on the highway up to 27mpg if you follow the speed limit. This car uses a lot of electronics which means more things to break and when anything on this car breaks it is expensive but that happens infrequently.
Overall review: The overall maintenance of the car is pretty fair for its luxury and performance. The performance is outstanding the car is extremely safe with its traction control and anti-lock brakes. Everyone that is looking for the best blend of performance, comfort, and safety then this car is for you.

"1997 Lincoln Mark Viii" by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/29/2007. Trim: 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC, Owned 9 years.
Pros: This is a fast car even though it is very heavy. The styling of this car was way ahead of it's time and look like it was made today. Interior is hands down one of the best I have seen. The car does 0-60 in about 7's even though it can do it in 6.7 (I have tested it). Car handles great even on the highway with it's air suspension that lowers the car at highway speeds. If your thinking about buying this car, do it. It's a must own if you like performance, looks, space.
Cons: The chrome trim will fade away one day and will need to be replaced. If anything breaks on the car it is expensive. My seat broke it's going to cost $1200 to fix. The lights are also expensive about $500 too buy plus install. The car needs more of a roar with the exhaust system.
Overall review: This is the best car that Lincoln has ever made. It's one of the best cars on the road and needs to be seen by other people. As I said earlier, if you are looking for a car. Pick the 1997 Lincoln Mark Viii LSC. Dont let "1997" is old because the look and performance of this car tell other wise.
