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