    91 Continental Executive.. Light blue ext, dark blue int.

    Male.. feel older than dirt but only 42

    about 50 miles / day.. 80% country roads (55-65), rest city

    My Conti Was FREE! (but I had to fix it!)

    what I dislike.. well, my conti is a never ending money pit it seems... nickle and dime'in me to death.... but I can't expect anything else, it sat for 2 1/2 years unprotected, unprepped for storage, ect.. I figure it will take about a year to get all the bugs out of it

    Overall, I give it *** at this time. may go either way in future.. depending on what I gotta do to it

    27yr old Male
    00 miles total a day to/from work (in town)
    I love the luxury feel of the car
    The thing I dislike the most is the fact that everyone says "too bad it isn't RWD"
    I would rate the car about a 4, not perfect but certainly better then average.

    1994 Lincoln Continental Executive series.
    Male 19
    18-20 city 25-28 hwy.
    I love the Contis for the ride and interior and exterior. Rides like a cloud nice and smooth. The seats are the most comfortable seats ever. and the exterior design has a great elegance about it. Insurance payments are low.
    Dislikes: Air ride can be a problem. Has electrical quirks (dash board ) from time to time. Sometimes expensive to repair.
    I want to give it 5. But it has given me a few problems so I have to say 4 stars. :L

    1978 Continental (Town Car option package, but it's still a Continental)

    male, 18 y.o

    in my lincoln? anywhere from 0-10 mostly city, once in a while on a nice day I take it somewhere on the highway

    I like the ride and the styling, it is a large car, build quality compared to other cars in this vintage, I am young but I still have been around a lot of old cars.

    I wish it was all Lincoln instead of Ford,

    5 stars of course, I did CHOOSE to buy it didn't i? why would i buy a piece of crap?

    1998 Continental

    Male/26

    16 Combo City/Highway

    Image it portrays, ride comfort, features

    Poor radio sound quality (going to upgrade speakers), Transmission weakness

    4 - Considering a Town Car or Navigator to replace the Jeep next year (yes I know quite a difference but whatever I can score the best deal on will make the judgement).

    94 Conti

    94 Signiture 94k miles on it
    male 45
    10 to 40 miles around town 21 to 28 mpg
    Not just the ride but the way it drives and handles not like a boat.

    I would give it a solid 4 stars. I plan to trade up a couple of years with one with a v8

    -1996 Black Continental, every option cept heated ceats (even has cell)
    -Male, 19
    -I only drive about 100 miles a week since i'm at school now.
    -Likes: Power, styling, luxury, nice stereo (don't know what you people complain about but i am a hardcore audiophile and the stock JBL stereo sounds quite good. Nice range, very good midbass and midrange...only thing lacking is the bass below about 35-40Hz which an add in sub will fill in)
    -Dislikes: the air ride is killing me...the door handle is cheap and keeps breaking...and as everyone else said not RWD :( I also hate being told i have an old man's car...even if it smokes all those civics and other ricers i come across on the highway.
    -Overall rating is a 4. Where else can you get this level of luxury and performance used for under 5 grand?

    I am still dreaming of getting a 98 Mark VIII LSC. It has what the conti lacks, but for twice the price.
