Model Highlights

The 2008 Town Car remains Lincoln's entry into the luxury sedan segment. Accordingly, it is very well equipped with power leather seating, cornering lamps, automatic headlamps, heated exterior mirrors with a left-hand auto-dimming feature as well as a memory function, a six-disc CD changer, dual-zone climate control, power adjustable pedals with memory, remote trunk closing, and an electrochromic rearview mirror.

Standard safety items include traction control, anti-lock disc brakes, rear park assist, and side air bags.

Underneath the Town Car you'll find a fully boxed, hydroformed steel frame that provides a stiff platform. This allows the engineers to tune the suspension for a remarkably comfortable ride. You'll also find rack and pinion steering that adds a delightful sharpness to the Town Car's reflexes.

The Town Car comes equipped with only one powertrain: the 4.6L V8 engine, rated at 239 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque. It is coupled with a smooth-shifting four-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels. The Town Car's 21 cubic feet of trunk space is among the biggest in this segment.

Stepping up from the Town Car Signature Limited to the Town Car Signature L gives you a stretched wheelbase, allowing for six more inches of rear leg room. This increased rear seat space is garnished with heated rear seats, rear audio and climate controls, and other backseat luxuries, transforming the vehicle into something just short of a private limousine.

Options include flex-fuel capability, high-intensity discharge headlamps, and a trunk organizer.


Model News

The Lincoln Town Car sees a simplified model lineup for 2008, with the base level Signature and uplevel Designer Series models being discontinued. Outside, a two-tone paint scheme is no longer available, and four paint choices have been removed. On the safety front, a tire pressure monitoring system is now standard across the model line.

The navigation system, THX audio system, and moonroof no longer grace the options list.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Town Car continues as Lincoln's premier sedan. It is the archetypal American automobile, delivering a luxury interior, a smooth ride, plenty of interior comfort, rear-wheel drive, and V8 power. According to Lincoln, the Town Car is the first car in its class to receive a five-star safety rating in all five categories.

Summary
Ford is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Ford Crown Victoria (including Crown Victoria Police Interceptors), Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Town Car vehicles. The affected vehicles are currently registered or were originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Severe corrosion can seize the lower intermediate shaft which may cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and the steering column lower bearing to separate.

Consequence
If the lower bearing separates, the vehicle may experience a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners and dealers will replace the lower intermediate shaft, free of charge. The upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing will be inspected to identify any damage that may have occurred as a result of lower intermediate shaft corrosion, and repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed. The recall is expected to begin October 21, 2013. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's recall number is 13S08. Customers located in non-corrosion states who have concerns regarding their steering will have a onetime option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
