White Limo by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/22/2008. Trim: 2005 Lincoln Town Car Signature, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Was looking for a large car on the used market that would hold 4-5 people very comfortable on trips. Every car I looked at was over priced and cramped inside. A slightly used town car was priced about the same as a used Marquis with more bells and whistles - plus more legroom front and rear. The ride was better than the Merc's and the seats more comfy. On the highway getting 27.7...city getting 23.2 - my V6 averaged about the same... 239 hp is enough to move this big bruiser down the road, but its not a Mustang GT on takeoffs - but they aren't designed that way. Handling is great for a large car - much better than the older 80s and 90s big cars. Independent front suspsenion helps out.
Cons: Long hood, harder to park, longer braking distance than most cars, RWD may deter some snowbelt buyers.
Overall review: A boulevard cruiser for those who need room for 5 or 6 without being cramped, and trunk space, plus good mileage on regular/87 fuel. Seating is like riding on a sofa, and you don't get tired after a long 6-8 hour trip. If in doubt before buying rent one first....always a good idea. Try the Marquis first, then the Town Car. Basic same chassis, but the unique suspension should impress you enough to bring you over to the TC's side. Buying used year or two old these cars might be the best best - most are either rentals or owned by older adults who take very good care of them - serviced regularly, and generally not driven hard. Town Cars are body on frame so it isolates the road noise so when traveling you can actually carry on a civilized conversation (something many cars today is rare). This also helps in the ride and drive..
