I am just about to book my travel from Sandford International to Disney Port Orleans and Orlando Town Vehicle has presented th ideal price tag.

For its redesign in the 1998 model year, the Lincoln Town Auto retained the Ford Panther platform that had underpinned its predecessor. To enhance the cornering stability of the Town Vehicle, a Watt's linkage was fitted to the solid rear axle suspension (a modify airport transportation seattle also noticed in its Mercury and Ford counterparts). The front brake calipers were changed to a larger dual-piston design 16-inch wheels became common.

As with its predecessors, the 1998 Lincoln Town Automobile visibly shares couple of typical interior parts with its Ford and Mercury counterparts (aside from its steering column, radio, and climate controls). To improve ergonomics, energy seat controls on Signature and Cartier models are relocated from the seat to door panel (Executive Series, in 1999). In a move to boost security, seat-mounted side airbags turn out to be regular on all Town Cars for 1999. In the very same year, the Executive Series regains its rear-seat center armrest (initially deleted in a cost-cutting move).

Yet another new feature available on the Signature Series, the keyless entry method , allowed access to the car by way of a factory-programmed (or self-programmed alternate) five-digit mixture. From the keypad mounted above the driver door handle, the driver could lock all 4 doors, or soon after entering the code, unlock the vehicle's doors or open the trunk lid. With this method being linked only to the automobile, rather than a satellite, the need to have for drivers to share their identity with an operator in a potentially unsecure environment was not required. Along with standard keyless entry devices, this function is still in use on many Lincoln-Mercury and Ford vehicles (as of the 2015 model year).

The Base (Executive Series from 1991 onward) Town Car provided six-passenger seating with two bench seats, a 4-speaker AM/FM stereo with cassette player, 8-way front energy seats, a four-speed overdrive automatic transmission, cloth seating surfaces, fifteen-inch tires, a digital LED dashboard, trip laptop, dashboard clock, and keyless entry with Ford's SecuriCode keyless entry keypad.
