Five stars, front impact protection
NHTSA

The 2008 Lincoln Mark LT scores well in crash tests, but it’s missing some important safety equipment.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nonetheless gives it top scores in frontal impacts. As of this writing, there have been no tests on the Lincoln Mark LT performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS); however, this agency did award "the highest possible rating of 'Good' in frontal-offset crash testing," according to Edmunds.

Cars.com reports that "dual front airbags deploy at different levels according to crash severity, and a front-passenger sensing system is installed."

The glaring oversight that pulls down the Lincoln Mark LT's safety score in the view of TheCarConnection.com is its lack of side airbags, which is confirmed by Edmunds.

There is little said about visibility issues in the 2008 Lincoln LT, although the windows seem generous and the mirrors well placed. A rearview camera is now offered as an option, J.D. Power says.

Conclusion

The 2008 Lincoln Mark LT has good crash-test ratings, but it lacks side airbags and stability control.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
