A Smooth and Comfy Ride with Style

I really like the look of a Lincoln Town Car they ride smoothly but the only problem that I have had is with the air suspension, when those airbags go out it is a very pricey price to pay to get it fixed. I really do not see the point of it being on the vehicle I feel that it is another way for the Ford manufacture to get extra money out of you. It is very roomy inside and has a very comfortable feel to it. Like with any vehicle you have to keep up it up for it to run in tip top shape, so always keep an oil change

The most comfortable ride I have had in a very long time!

It is a comfortable ride and has a lot of extra features. It is a little hard to get in and out if you are older. It is an older car but has very low miles. The heated leather seats are a great comfort. The Lincoln is a very nice ride, after owning SUVs and vans this is so much more comfortable. The gas mileage is ok but the comfort outweighs the few miles you have lost.

It's a Lincoln with a manual transmission.

It's actually a Lincoln LS, not a TownCar; your survey is broken in that it didn't offer that choice of models for me to choose. It's a sporty luxury sedan. It's very unique since it is a Lincoln with a manual transmission manufactured in the 21st century. I hang onto it because it is impossible to replace with a manual.

Summary:

The vehicles equipped with these belts include Ford Crown Victorias built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Mercury Grand Marquis built at St. Thomas Assembly Plant from 4/17/00 - 5/29/01; Lincoln Town Cars built at Wixom Assembly Plant from 3/27/00 - 5/30/01; Lincoln Navigators built at Michigan Truck Plant from 4/11/00 - 5/31/01; Ford Windstars built at Oakville Assembly Plant from 3/23/00 - 5/30/01; Ford Rangers built at Twin Cities Plant from 3/28/00 - 5/30/01 and also at the Edison Plant from 3/13/00 - 5/25/01; Ford F-150 trucks built at the Norfolk Plant from 4/18/00 - 5/25/00, at the Onta...

Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V258
Summary:
On certain passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, and light and medium duty pickup trucks, a switch located in the plastic cover of the wiper motor gear case could malfunction and overheat, potentially resulting in loss of intermittent wiper function, loss of wiper park function, complete loss of wiper function, smoke, or ignition of the plastic cover material. Switch malfunction is most likely to occur when the intermittent setting of the wipers is being used, or when snow or ice obstructs the blades from returning to the "parked" position at the bottom of the windshield. These vehicles were built at the following assembly plants: Atlanta plant from 2/11/00 through 7/31/00; Chicago plant from 2/14/00 through 8/4/00; Kansas City plant from 2/26/00 to 9/4/00; Kentucky truck plant from 2/18/00 to 8/31/00; Michigan truck plant from 2/23/00 through 8/3/00; Norfolk plant from 2/21/00 through 7/27/00; Wayne Stamping and Assembly plant from 2/25/00 through 8/15/00; and Wixom plant from 2/...
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the date code on the wiper motor. Motors built within the suspect time frame will have the wiper motor gear case cover replaced. The manufacturer reported that owner notification would begin during September 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V270
Summary:
Certain passenger vehicles and minivans were built with a newly designed restraint control module (RCM). In some cases, the RCM does not recognize certain system faults that could result in an air bag or seat belt pre-tensioner unexpectedly activating during the self-test sequence at vehicle start-up. This condition could result in personal injury.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the RCM in these vehicles. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 2, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V412
Summary:
On certain minivans and passenger vehicles, a restraint control module (RCM) or a side or front crash sensor may have been assembled with one or more of the screws that mount the circuit board in the housing missing. If some or all of the screws are missing, the performance of the occupant restraint could be affected, providing less than the intended level of protection in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the RCM and crash sensors and, if necessary, replace them. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 18, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
