Oh, yeah, garbage. Also a solution seeking a problem. And cheap-feeling buttons, too.

Ford parts-bin stuff.

eureka 

it is so fucking unnatural.

i will never understand the button thing.

josh

Yeah, I actually reversed out of a parking space once and then sat there, trying to remember how to put the car in drive.

eureka

which is ridiculous since you know, thats the whole point.

it made parallel parking in Brooklyn so uncomfortable.

not only are they not where a shift knob would be, but it is a series of buttons.

josh

Yeah, it's hard to look cool when you're stabbing a finger wildly at the center console. 

Okay, let's wrap up. Final thoughts?

eureka

Jacqueline, as i named her (because i always name my cars), was lovely, but i never stopped feeling absolutely out of place driving her. not sure if it's because i am a woman, or because i am less than 50 or 60 years old, or just because i'm not Matthew McConaughey. obviously we knew this going in, but that car is definitely not targeting millennials, between the size, the price and the extreme levels of luxury. frankly, if i wanted a more luxurious sedan, i would gravitate towards an Audi or a BMW, because it doesn't feel over-the-top yet has the same general features. i couldn't live with the buttons to shift, it's that bad for me. i didn't love the all-brown-everything on the screens, it doesn't exactly make me happy. the style is cool, yet somehow feels too old for me. the heads up display might have been my favorite of all the cars i have driven... ever (i think). i liked the power, although i agree it takes a minute to really go. it is just way too big, especially for still being a sedan and not a crossover. i had a lot of fun driving this car for the time i had her, but i never got attached to her.

josh

That's an interesting take. Ford's really penned themselves in, it seems, because they need to make the Continental recognizably Continental-like (big, soft, plush) or none of the dedicated customers will buy it—but younger buyers REALLY don't want that package.

One wonders if Lincoln simply continues to make the Continental until those customers die, or Lincoln does. In the meantime, the Navigator will print money.

It's kind of a shame, really, because like I said, there's a big part of me that digs this kind of car.

eureka

me too!

josh

I like a big comfy thing that's great for road trips, has plenty of power underfoot, and is unapologetic about being what it is.

eureka 

and all the MKs which i can never keep track of...

josh 

More than that, this car is well-executed, aside from some chintzy interior bits; I think the exterior design is quite striking and handsome, and the cabin is a great place to spend several hours zoning out and listening to talk radio.

Oh, man, I sound like my grandfather...
