This is a substantial feeling car and makes me feel safe.

My Lincoln looks beautiful and drives like a dream. It is comfortable and has all the bells and whistles that I want in a car. I also like the safety features like a rear view camera and lane change alerts.

- Michelle O

The car is Very dependable and has pretty good gas mileage considering

I love my car. It never breaks down. It fits me just right. It is really sharp looking and I believe I will keep it for a long time. I have always driven a Lincoln and this is one of my favorites

- cynthia v

It is a 4 door with a trunk, a hybrid engine that gets the battery charged by stepping on the brakes to slow down or stop.

It is a hybrid and I get 90 miles per gallon while driving the city streets and highways around Texas. It is my first Lincoln experience and I just love it.
