Bought my '95 Mark VIII with 40k miles on it in Jan. '05. I love the ride, but would NOT RECOMMEND it because of the VERY HIGH COST of repairing/replacing air ride, which this one didn't even get to 70,000 miles before breaking (& Linc. dealers will not work on suspension or older models, & honestly, they don't drive nearly as good without the air ride). I had it repaired first time & 13 months later air ride went out again. Eventually, converted to shocks and then had to have new control arms too. Rebuilt the total suspension front and back, chronic problems with headlights, sunroof doesn't work, many cracked hoses, alternator, many batteries, automatic antenna doesn't work. I've spent about $5000 to 6000 in repairs (actual costs). Upside is that it does have great power/pickup and the AC is in good condition & I don't mind driving it. As much as I want to buy another American made car, don't think I will after a T-Bird, 2 Mercury Cougars (head gaskets went out and these were bought brand new)and now this old Linc. But, I do have a soft-spot in my heart (or maybe it's really in my head), for the old ride. Spent so much on her, I may just keep for nostalgia cause they don't build 'em like this anymore. The Mark VIII has the same specs. as a Ford Cobra. Oops mine is a 95 not 93.
I love my Mark Vlll, but have spent a lot of money on repairs. Right now and for a long time I have replaced 4 batteries and 4 altinators in 5 years and it still won't start every time. Any suggestions?
