Most comfortable of the Lincoln

by Maximum Comfort Seeker from Texas on Sun Nov 11 2007

More comfortable, by far, than the third generation Town Car which replaced this body style. Outstanding economy (25+ on the highway) with a level of comfort that is unsurpassed.

Super Car

by Billy Boy from Hampton, VA on Sat Dec 01 2007

Have owned this vehicle and driven it for over 100,000 miles. Purchased it used from a dealer. 24 - 25 mpg on the road is a reality. Do not know of a vehicle that rides as good. Have purchased other used TCs in the meantime - 3@'96 Models - and still am driving my '97 with 139,000+ miles. Saves on personal property taxes by having two used older model TCs. Finally had a breakdown about 5 weeks ago - cost me $800 for an intake manifold replacement. Not bad for some 5 years or so. Wish they still made the '97 body style, but will not stand in the way of improvement. Enjoy the day Bill

Best car I've ever had

by Cartier Owner from Denham Springs, LA on Sun Sep 06 2009

I was fortunate to purchase my '97 Town Car Cartier edition for a very reasonable price in Oct. 2008. It is very roomy, comfortable and relaible. Gas mileage is reasonable since it is not used over 500 miles per week. My husband has a spinal cord disease which causes him a great deal of pain, and the Town Car is excellent for him because is allows him to ride comfortably. The muli-function buttons on the steering wheel are very handy. It allows me to keep my eyes focused on the road. Six passenger seating in a sedan is hard to come by in newer cars. The Town Car does not disappoint, and the style is still outstanding.

Most comfortable car I have ever owned.

by Me Fo' You from Honolulu, HI on Wed Jul 26 2017

I love this car. It is elegant and comfortable. It rides as though you are sitting on your sofa in your living room The air conditioner is excellent. Only has 48, 800 miles. It has all the extras on it. Needs replacing the center link and the idler arm. Great value.

Our Take on the 1997 Lincoln Town Car

The Lincoln Town Car is a survivor.

Now that Cadillac has thrown the last spade of dirt on its rear-drive Brougham, Lincoln-Mercury's 1997 Town Car is the last of the big, rear-drive luxury American sedans. It now is the largest American-built production four-door, being surpassed in size only by stretch limousines.

The '97 Town Car, as with its predecessors, is a story of evolution, not revolution. It takes a practiced eye to distinguish prior models from the present one. Changes have been more mechanical, and in comfort and convenience, than in appearance.

The '97 Town Car continues to be an elegant and majestic motor vehicle, a fitting representative of Lincoln's slogan, "What a luxury car... Read More
