Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1986 Lincoln Town Car? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Town Car) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln Town Car won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
