A real looker but at too high a (maintenance) cost. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/12/2005. Trim: 1995 Lincoln Mark VIII Base, Owned 2 years.
Pros: One of the best looking domestic cars ever made. Stately styling always turns heads. Very aerodynamic body slices through the air at highway speeds resulting in 25+ mpg at 75 mph. My experience and message boards suggest it will not strand you on the side if the road.
Cons: Electrical problems abound. Air suspension to blame for a poor quality ride and constant expensive repairs. Doors are so heavy the exterior door handles break. Difficult to work on. Changing the engine oil without making a mess is not possible. You will have transmission problems. Too many dealer-only parts. Engine power is not what it should be. After two years I still can't park it right because I can't see where the front of the car is.
Overall review: A very sharp car but not worth the cost of upkeep. Would have been a good car to lease new and turn back in before the warranty expired.
