Good deal for a used car in excellent condition!

by Faheem from Newark on Sun Jan 21 2018

This car accommodates my untimely need for a car to get me back and forth to my CDL Training site along with any other local / distant obligation(s) that I have to meet; I'm 6ft tall 235 lb and this car is very comfortable and rides so smooth!

Good deal for a used car in excellent condition!

by Faheem from Newark on Sun Jan 21 2018

The test drive was very smooth and the AC and heater blower you can hear it come on but the air wasn't coming out of the vents as hard as you hear it blowing and the turn signals and hazard lights didn't Flash but maybe it was in need of new bulbs or the alternator probably wasn't charged fully I don't know but I know that the car drove extremely well...The transmission didn't have any slips or issues with going into gear and the brakes weren't squeaking and the brake / acceleration pedals weren't loose they had good tension and the exterior had no dents the lines were straight and no rush either. The interior was in excellent condition as well-especially the LEATHER!!

reliable, comfortable, a lot of value

by Swiss Lincoln from Switzerland on Sun Mar 25 2012

truly one of the finest examples of American premiums cars of that time. Car is extremely reliable, handles very well for everyday commuting and provides a lot of comfort on long trips, being complimented by the large flat trunk. Engine delivers ample power for highway acceleration and passing. Lots of electronic features that are not offered anymore in todays cars - and if well maintained everything still works well after 15 years. Car can be truly recommended - it gets you a lot for the money. Here in Switzerland you don't get them often as there aren't many - but it's well worth owning one.

Great Car

by Love Luxury from Thornfield, Mo. on Thu Mar 17 2016

Purchased my Lincoln in 2011 with 75000 miles on it In 2016 I have 165000 miles on it. When I bought it had to reattach the head liner at the rear window which was easy to do, had Ford dealer replace the inside rear view mirror. When someone else drives my Continental and changes seating, mirrors, etc for them it is so nice to be able get into the driver's seat and press my number on memory and it goes right back to all my settings. I love the ride of this car. On long road trips I have gotten over 26 miles to the gallon. In the 90,000 miles I have put on this car there has only been routine maintenance.

Great first car

by E99mchargue from on Thu Apr 27 2017

I bought this car when i was 15 with 108,000 miles on it for $3,000. I still have this car and all i have had to do is change the radiator fan. I also replaced the alternator and had it in the shop for a tune up but those were not mandatory
