The 2003 Lincoln Town Car has been completely re-engineered for 2003. The result is substantially improved ride and handling. Town Car is appealing for its spacious seating for six people and a trunk that provides cavernous storage for luggage and golf clubs. This is a traditional American luxury sedan. It's roomy and comfortable. It's smooth and stable. Its V8 engine and rear-wheel-drive layout give it a traditional feel. And it's luxurious. Those who buy Town Cars like them; The Town Car is the highest-rated American car in the mid-luxury segment according to a J.D. Power and Associates customer-satisfaction study; 60 percent of all Town Car customers are repeat buyers. Some 75 percent of limousine and livery fleets are made up of this large American luxury sedan. Yet individuals still account for more than 65 percent of all Town Car sales. For 2003, Lincoln re-engineered the Town Car with the objective of improving its handling. The new Town Car boasts a new frame, a new rack-and-pinion steering system, a new brake system, and new front and rear suspensions. Revised front and rear styling distinguish the new model, but the changes are subtle and only careful observers are likely to notice. A new instrument panel and improved trunk space highlight the interior changes.
