Lincoln Town Car 2011
Long a favorite with car services, the Town Car's V8, long hood, and stately appearance maintains the tradition of domestic luxury cruisers. Built on an old-school full frame, with rear-wheel drive and a host of electronic and convenience features, the Town Car delivers a fairly comfortable ride but lacks the sophistication of more up-to-date luxury cars. Handling is secure but rather clumsy and its 4.6-liter V8 is somewhat noisy and unrefined. The rear seat can hold three adults comfortably, and even more room is available in the extended Signature model. With steep depreciation the Town Car a fair used car for those who don't mind a very dated design.
