Still a Great Car in 2020

Purchased this car in Feburary 2019, looking to size up from a Toyota Corolla. I was able to get this car used with only 55,000 miles for under $8k with only one previous owner. I now have 78,000 miles on it, and have driven it as my commuter as well as on long hauls. Overall, it rides very smoothly and has plenty of power under the hood. The good: - Very smooth shifting - Plenty of get up and go when you hit the gas - Classy wood trim and leather wrapped steering wheel - A/C seats in an '08!!! (especially in Florida) - Factory (non-THX) stereo is adequate - Plenty of convenience features - Plenty of space for cargo - Reliable, only oil changes so far The bad: - Gas mileage has disappointed for a sedan (20.9MPG) - Very cheap plastic interior parts (door handles and dash) Overall, I love the car and think it still has so much life in it. For a 2008, it doesn't look like an "old man car" like my '03 LeSabre did. I think it has a great balance of sportiness and smoothness to be proud to own it, while enjoying the creature comforts for those long haul trips.


Excellent Car for everyone

It is a great family car that gets great miles per gallon. The safety features are awesome. It has a lock for your baby's car seat to lock the baby's car seat in properly for safety.


very comfortable plenty of power so far a great c

my only complaint is the armrest keeps sliding forward when I rest my arm on it by its self other than that it is a very nice ride



Economical,fun, a decent value, quality sound system, reliable, easy to service, dependable, meets basic needs and goes well in the snow when properly equipped with snow tires.


Loved the car, but there were some issues.

My biggest issue with this car was the rims. They kept leaking and I kept getting flat tires. (It cost me a letter grade in college and reprimanding at work). When I contacted Lincoln about this issue, they stated the "cleaner" I was using to clean them was corroding them. Not the case at all.. it was simply water. However, I could not prove it, and to replace my rims would have cost me $2,500.00 out of pocket. Then it started to nickle and dime with repairs needed. It only had 80K on it when I turned it in. I loved the luxury mixed with the sport of this car. Great body style, performance was amazing up toward the end of its life with me. I cared for this car very well, but time was taking it's tole on it.


Great car shopppng site

Love shopping on cars.com. First place I turned to when I needed to sell my car which sold in less than a week. You won’t be disappointed.



Love this car, inside and out, just got the passenger side airbag recall finally done, just wish FORD/LINCOLN WOULD PUT A RECALL OUT FOR THE CRAPY PTU / TRANSFER CASE UNIT, all the online reviews show they are crap, mine makes noise and needs to be replaced.
