On the sales front, in spite of continued glowing reviews by the automotive press, Imperial fell behind the competition, namely Cadillac and Lincoln. Road Test Magazine, in its May 1965 issue, published an article that compared the Big Three luxury cars (Cadillac, Lincoln, and Imperial) to one another. The article was fairly evenly split among the three test cars, and was not shy about being critical of them, noting specifically Cadillac's lack of bumper protection in the front as well as in the rear, the absence of rocker panel moldings, poor fit and finish of interior trim pieces, and in general, overall poor workmanship. In fact, Road Test said the quality control on Cadillac was not significantly better than that of the Oldsmobile or Buick Division! Cadillac's perimeter frame, a new design for 1965, was said to be too flexible on rough pavement and winding roads, which caused audible and annoying rattles inside the car.
