Re: New STS competitor from Lincoln?
I like Lincolns.
I am on my 3rd Lincoln.
I've purchased new, a 1986 Special Order Paint: Pink Mark 7
a Pearl White 1998 Mark 8;
and my current 2003 Town Car, Silver-Jade.
I would not be caught dead in that undescribly homely, far reaching ugly,
snub nosed blimp! That has got to be the ugliest Lincoln in MY lifetime,
of 59 years. A Town Car that looks like a melted Altima that mated with
a Saab 9.3, and this is the runt of the litter ! Good Grief.
The most satisfying Lincoln is the Town Car, for ride, comfort, quiet, braking, visibility, air conditioning, stereo, CD, THX audio and lack of problems. At $47,000 it's a "buy" and frequently you'll come across examples with 200,000 miles on them, with no engine work. There IS a reason that livery companies swear by them, and not at them, as do limousine drivers & New York City Taxis.
To follow the current car up with this melted scoop of plain vanilla is ..... I am without words. I told my salesman that if I didn't upgrade to a 2006 Town car this summer, I'd go back to Cadillac. He said, "I wouldn't blame ya" ~ we are about to flush our customer base down the toilet ~ he added.
They now have 3 almost exact cars: LS - Zephyr and mow MK5 ..or is it MKS? Does it really matter?
They just came out with a 25th Anniversary Commemorative Town Car with Sterling Silver accents and Special Black Leather Shirred leather piped in SILVER and chrome 18 spokes and rear seat power headrests. Gotta go see.
