1999 Lincoln Town Car Cartier Sedan 4-door 4.6l on 2040-cars
Monroe, Ohio, United States
I have driven this car daily for about 1.3 years. It drives like a Lincoln Town Car should. It has been well maintained and garage kept since I have owned it. I believe the previous owner also kept it in a garage. I have put about 27k miles with very little problems. One repair performed while I have owned it was replacing the intake manifold on the top of the motor. I was told it is a common problem on this engine. It had a hairline crack and you could smell coolant. Otherwise, I have seen these cars drive for hundreds of thousand of miles with very little problems. It also has new platinum plugs. This car has low miles for the age at 129k. It is a clean car inside and out. I was told the air-ride suspension was recently replaced before I bought it. I am only assuming this is true but it rides very well. See below for the description of any of the existing known issues/problems.
The largest ding is on the rear drivers door(shown in photo). Otherwise the exterior is in good condition. It has very few dings and has some minor scratches that you would expect on a black car of this age. The hood has been repainted. It was repainted prior to the current owner purchase. It looks good from about 5 feet away. It was painted because the clear coat was fading. You can see the spots that were not sanded well underneath the new paint from up close. Otherwise the paint looks original and cleans up well on the rest of the car. The drivers door lock is disconnected inside the door. It opens with the key manually. The key fob is not original. It does not have the original floor mats. Cd changer in the trunk has a missing magazine. Tires are not matching front to rear but are all in good condition.
Let me know if you have any questions or need any additional information or photos of the car. Car is sold as is. Happy bidding!

It's no secret that Lincoln has received short shrift from the Ford Motor Company for years, and former CEO Alan Mullay even wanted to kill the whole thing off when he ran things. Today, things appear to be trending in a different direction. Fresh investment has helped enable a sizable marketing push for its well-regarded MKC compact crossover, a couple of awards for the company and plant the seeds for a major expansion into China. While the situation is still in the early going, it looks like Lincoln is on a tentative (if long) path towards a turnaround. If new reports are accurate, the brand is poised to build on that momentum with its largest investment in new products in years thanks in large measure to a new modular platform codenamed D6.
According to four unnamed insiders speaking to Reuters, FoMoCo is investing over $5 billion over the next five years, partially to create a new modular platform to underpin multiple Lincoln vehicles - and possibly some Ford products, too. Development is reportedly being overseen by the division's new boss, Kumar Galhotra. At the moment, specific details about the D6 chassis aren't yet known, but it's rumored to have the flexibility to support front-, rear- and all-wheel drive vehicles. According to Reuters, the first model using the framework could be an MKZ replacement and seven-passenger MKT successor in 2019.
Until the D6-based models hit, expect to see continued expansion from Lincoln. Ford management isn't trying to turn around the division overnight and is planning "in terms of generations of products," according to current CEO Mark Fields. The strategy unsurprisingly includes a production version of Lincoln's recent MKX Concept, as well as an all-new Navigator using aluminum-intensive architecture. Reuters also claims the MKS is due for renewal in the meantime, including with a longer-wheelbase version to appeal to the brand's new Chinese buyers.
After an excessive number of recalls on the 2013 Escape and Fusion, we can't really fault Ford for being a little extra cautious with the launch of the 2013 Lincoln MKZ. Last month, we reported that dealer supply of the car was extremely limited due to more attention being paid to quality checks of cars rolling off the assembly line, which led to a 73-percent drop in MKZ sales from last year on top of a 32-year low in monthly sales for Lincoln in January.
The reason for the delay was that the sedans were being shipped from the Hermosillo, Mexico assembly plant to be inspected even closer at Ford's Flat Rock, Michigan plant before they were able to head to dealers. Things seem to be straightening out for Lincoln and the MKZ's production now, as Automotive News is reporting that supply should be up to a "normal level" by the end of this month.
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid has been something of a hit for Ford since the beginning, exceeding the company's modest projected 15-percent take rate for more than two years (we say "modest" because that still means an overwhelming majority of Lincoln customers are passing up on the gas-electric powertrain even though it costs the same as the standard model). Either way, Lincoln builds 700 MKZ Hybrids at its plant in Mexico each month, but has sold 715 of them in each of the past three months. That's why, according to a report in The Detroit News, when the restyled 2014 MKZ Hybrid arrives (non-hybrid pictured), Ford is doubling production compared to 2013. Instead of the hybrid model being 20 percent of production, the new hybrid will make up 40 percent.
Ford is doing well with hybrids in general - its portion of the electrified vehicle segment jumping 12 points in a single year to 16 percent. Assuming Ford doesn't change the pricing strategy (along with the changes Ford is making to calibration to improve fuel economy), the sedan could continue to "[show] other luxury hybrids how it's done" when it goes on sale later this year.
