Expensive, problematic, gas guzzler

by Maligar from Cleveland. Ohio | June 05, 2020

What attracted me to the car is its external beauty. It is designed to look like a mini Bentley. However I’ve had so many problems with the tires, tire pressure gauges, door locks, loose stitching on the leather seats, sunroof came apart, two recalls. Moreover, the miles per gallon that you get in the city is dismal. Much better on the highway. My car has been back to the dealer and they have had to keep it two or more days for 10 times approximately since I purchased it in 2017 June.

I do admire the Lincoln service of picking up my car, giving me a comparable loaner, and returning my car washed and detailed. The service workers are also nice, helpful, and concerned.’ Perhaps the later models are better.

2017 Lincoln Continental Overview

Lincoln is resurrecting the Continental name and jumping back into the full-size flagship luxury sedan arena with a car aimed at both the American and Chinese markets.

Exterior
The first things one might notice walking up to the 2017 Lincoln Continental are the unconventional door handles tucked into the chrome strip that runs beneath the windows. The doors are opened by pressing a button and an electronic latch does the rest of the work.
Aside from that feature, the rest of the Continental's styling is pretty conventional, but not in a bad way. It wears the brand's new grille that mimics the Lincoln badge. Also it has a fairly upright looking cabin and big front and rear overhangs. In an age where more automakers are going to swoopy, coupelike styling for sedans, it's almost refreshing to see a car with more conventional styling.

Interior
It seems like whenever an automaker comes out with a new luxury car, it will suggest that the interior is inspired by private jets, and it's no different with the Continental. The Continental has available heated and cooled seats; they also have a massage feature as well as independent thigh extensions for more support. Backseat passengers aren't left out either, as the available features include reclining, heated, cooled and massaging seats, audio and climate controls, and sunshades. I'm not up to the latest info on private jets, but that sounds a wee bit better than what one normally would expect.

Lincoln also says it's worked to create a quiet interior, with Active Noise Control and acoustic laminated glass.

Under the Hood
The sole powertrain is a Lincoln-exclusive 400 horsepower (estimated), twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that's estimated to produce 400 pounds-feet of torque.

The sedan will offer available all-wheel drive and three drive settings of Comfort, Normal and Sport, that will alter steering and suspension settings as needed.

Safety
Available safety features include a collision mitigation and avoidance system with pedestrian detection and optional adaptive cruise control plus a 360-degree camera system for parking.
