Lincoln Mark VIII OWNER RATINGS & REVIEWS
Write a review
I love this car.
The build quality is amazing. It currently has over 160,000 miles and there are no rattles, no issues whatsoever. Also, the vehicle hasn't required any major repairs other than general maintenance! The interior is of high quality and has held up almost perfectly so far other than slight wear showing on the leather seats and minor wear on the dash buttons. This car has a lot of power while still getting decent gas mileage. If you have a family, it isn't very practical. If you don't have a family, it is very comfortable and half practical. The styling is very nice, modern for it's age. This has been one of the most reliable vehicles I've owned, and I've owned many different vehicles. If you're into music, it has a very good sound system in it and with a box of subs in the trunk, you can't find much better.
Fat mans car
I purchased my silver 1997 used Mark in 2014. It had 144,000 mi. I have run the dickens out of it and she has taken the punishment with ladylike understanding. She is a beauty today in as much as it was the day it was made. The 4.6 DOHC runs like a scalded dog. The tranny was a bit slushy at first, but I put in a shift kit and now she'll squeal the tires between 1st to 2nd shifts. I destroyed the first engine and replaced it at my expense at 108Kmi. The new engine is even stronger than the first, maybe overbored a bit??? This car says luxury from the git-go, and it says successful, fast, and a bit dangerous male or female inside. My wife also loves it and the heated seats. My most favorite feature is the timeless body design. My silver Mark with the red LCD tail lamps across the back looks almost monochrome in appearance. I have had many strangers compliment me on this automobile. She's a looker and VERY quick, hunkers down nice and stable at 55 and doesn't look back.
Perfect Combination of Performance And Luxury
The Lincoln Mark VIII was the fastest American production vehicle of 1993. From the day it first came out, I wanted one. It wasn't until 11 years later that I got one--in as-new condition with 25k miles. The 4.6 liter DOHC 32 valve engine provided 280hp. For a luxury car, it's a screamer! I improved the performance on mine with an aftermarket computer chip that adjusts fuel mixture and air intake to give even more horsepower. The car is attractive with its aerodynamic sleek styling, which is not just for looks - combine those looks with the computer-controlled air ride suspension that automatically lowers at high speeds. Still pretty cool feature all these years later. Inside is of course roomy and comfortable. The leather upholstery is not quite as cushy as previous Lincoln Mark behemoths. This is fitting as this is a luxury-sport car, and not a "boat." The air ride suspension can develop leaks, making the car settle when it's parked for extended periods. I didn't have mine repaired as it was a minor issue. The car righted itself as soon as it started up. For anyone wanting such power and luxury with sleek styling, this is a great alternative to a Corvette or a Viper - more comfortable and affordable! Get one with low miles and enjoy!
