Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Cons: Quality & content
Advice: Check with your Lexus dealer, as I will next time I buy.This is a heavy car and it feels like it. Acceleration is good. Comfort is good. Mileage is only fair and it requires premium fuel. Some features considered standard on a mid-priced car are missing on the Continental, e.g., no cargo net in trunk, no underhood light, no dual zone HVAC controls. Quality leaves a lot to be desired. Service is not what one expects in a luxury car; you might as well be driving an Escort when you pull into the Lincoln service dept.
Pros: driver select
Cons: not a real spare
Advice: look at the cadillac before you decideIt's a heavy car a rides like a dream on the highway...but on city streets it doesn't handle bumps as well as one would expect for the quality of the suspension. Big 8 cyl. has outstanding power but it a little noisy upon excelleration. Handle corners nicely and is responsive.
Pros: Getting in and out of this vehicle ( Front seat)
Cons: Upholstery ( Carpet) very poor guality
Advice: I've owned Lincolns since 1936Takes curves better than the town car and is very good on gas milage.Handles great.Upholstery (carpet)Gives this Aotomobile a poor guality rating.Otherwise a great handler.Lincoln should put a regular size spare tire and wheel in this vehicle. (No micky mouse tire and wheel).I think the price you pay for the Continental you should get all wheels the same size
Pros: Driver Select
Advice: Do not be afraid of front wheel driveI Have Owned 3 of these vehicles and I think they are great.
