we purchaed this car a month ago and have been very happy with it. The ride is excellent even on a rough road. It is extremely quite which was something I was looking for. All the controls are easy to get to without taking your eyes off the road. It steers very easy and is easy to get in and out of parking places which is a big plus for a car this size.This is a great value for the money with all the extras that come with it. The leather seats are very plush and comfortable. The interior is very roomy and comfortable. The exterior is easy on the eyes very pretty. I would definetly buy another one and highy recommend this car if you are looking for a luxury car at afforadable price,
This car is truly excellent and unusual. The Cartier was the top of the line Lincoln and the "L" model was stretched 6" longer than the standard model. It has all the expected Lincoln options, but also a carriage roof, Alpine sound system with 6 disk CD and cassette player, and a unique console in the back seat with controls for the climate control and stereo, plus a switch that moves the right front passenger seat forward several inches for additional legroom. It is essentially a bridge car between the standard Town Car and the limosine. The seats are electrically adjustable and each seat has its own individual heating controls. Instruments are partially digital and partially analog.....a very clear and easy to understand layout. The stereo is a little complicated, but after you get it set up it's got a truly great sound. The ride is extraordinarily smooth and quiet...the air suspension even smooths out speed bumps. Gas mileage is acceptable for a car this size (I've gotten about 15 city and 24 highway average) and it uses regular 87 octane gas. The only negative is that the steering is not very precise. It has the general feel of a large American car from the 1960s, but I grew up on those cars so it's fine for me. I'm not sure how a standard Town Car looks, handles or feels, but the Cartier L model is an awesome vehicle!
There is no room for my legs and my knees always hit the steering wheel and it is difficult to enter and be seated. My right leg muscles ache after 200 miles. And during a 600 mile trip with my 30 year old son (with stop breaks every 150 miles) even he complained about the discomfort!! I have a 2002 Chevy Astro van that is very comfortable for my legs.
