    Yes, I'm sure only the best Lincoln dealerships will have the honor of showcasing the new Continental! I'm really proud of Lincoln these days. Several years ago my Lincoln dealer closed it's doors and simply moved into Ford's showroom. That kinda pissed me off. But they've recently built a NICE new showroom and I guess that goes to show people are really buying Lincolns again. It's easy to see - just look around on the road. Lincoln is making a great comeback...

    Just came back from my dealer. The sales manager said the cars are in the pipeline. On Monday they had a visit from Lincoln bringing them a 2017 Lincoln Continental fir a show and tell. All of the salespersons were asking questions and got a full info fact filled discussion of the features of the car. It was described as where the MKS leaves off the Continental starts. The luxury factor just gets better. It was one of the cars at the Las Vegas show. Out there it was driven and tested. According to my salesperson , they had to replace all four tires after only 3,000 miles were on the car. That's how much fun and driving took place.
    I did get the 2017 Continental brochure from my salesperson. Upon looking through I discovered there is no shifter. Apparently it is a touch screen button on the screen. Also , auto-fold side view mirrors! I am still reading and looking at all of the pictures, 3 engine choices , etc. WOW!

    Okay, you have me really excited now. Honestly, I want you to scan that entire brochure and post it online. I wonder if that's legal. If not, don't do it. But I'm not holding you to it anyway. That's a lot of work. And again, I'm not sure of the legality. Is there a brochure online yet?

    I looked at the brochure and unfortunately it is copyright by Lincoln. Guess I do not want to violate any laws. Sorry!

    OK, sounds great BUT----how long does a home computer or cellphone last? As we jump into computer/module controlled vehicles, the factory warranty is too short. As I found out when the DDM (driver's door module) failed in my 2007 TC Designer, I could NOT fix the issue--a first for me. A used DDM, unless it was from a clone of ALL the features of my vehicle, would not work properly. A new DDM had to be installed with a "as built" FoMoCo computer download. Cost was $535 for a repair that could be made on an older TC for $25. I am considering leasing new vehicles as getting a new one at the end of lease resolves THAT issue. THOUGHTS?

    I look at it this way, that $535 is likely less than one payment depending on what you get. I assume your Town Car has been paid off for a few years now. You've been saving a lot of money versus if you leased. I always say buying is better than leasing, unless you like having a new car every 2-3 years.

    The car was paid for upon delivery during Ford's FIRE sale in January 2007. If you missed that sale, you really missed something! If you have the service manuals for these newer cars, you'll discover they're full of modules and computer controlled equipment. Used parts are no longer possible with many failures as I found out. Of course "they" made a "Manufacturers mainframe download" required for some parts. I usually do all and I mean all of the maintenance on our vehicles---except for warranty work. The free oil/filter changes are not worth my time as I use Mobil 1 vs a blend. The real red flag for purchasing and keeping: FoMoCo has failed to understand why Chrysler stepped back from the internally engine mounted water pump! If you keep your car a long time, if you're lucky and discover a leaking water pump--the engine must be REMOVED for water pump replacement--cost $2,500+ vs an easy $75 D.I.Y. job. If the anti-freeze mixes with the oil, you'll lose the engine with a replacement cost of $7,500. Today's vehicles are getting too complex for the average, let alone the very experienced owners. Currently the age factor is hitting me as I realize older people get forgetful and hurt while working on vehicles. Member (South Park grapes) how easy it was to change front shocks on a 96 Panther? On a 07 Panther, it's a very different story. Therefore, for us, we'll starting leasing next year and throw the vehicle away at lease end and get a new vehicle.

    My dealer just got his first Conti. The sales manager gave me a call to come see it.i was impressed with the look. I did not like the color (white gold ) and the wheels were standard 19" which did not add to a better look. This one was pre - sold so it could not be opened or test driven. Another is coming in next week so I'll get a chance to drive one and check it out before mine arrives.
