The 5.0L Ford V8 is probably one of the most bulletproof and reliable engines ever mass produced by anyone in the world. The Towncar is a good but, not outstanding vehicle but, when all costs are considered, it is a great value. 200K miles is not a problem for the engine or car if properly maintained and driven. As with any other vehicle, it can be tortured and neglected to death very quickly.
