My first experience with buying a used luxury car with 80k miles. Lots of expensive problems with brakes, faulty engine head bolts but I really liked the way it rode and drove. Finally sold it at 125k miles when it needed new air shocks, at that time only available from mfg. at more than what the car was worth! Even then, probably would have done it but transmission had a weird slipping problem going around corners. This was essentially built on the Taurus platform and with improvements to the items mentioned is what the Taurus should have become in my opinion.

I bought my Linclon in 1999 at nine
years old for $7000. My wife hates
it. and I do to. My car is very good
in bad weather but not in the shop. I
hears very strange noises yesterday in
my car. Earlier today The car broke
down. My wife has a Sabb that is so
much beter than my car. My 27 year
old son's 1997 Toyota Camry and my 32
year old daughter's 1994 Toyota
Avolon and my 42 year old son in law's
1977 Honda Accord are so much better
than my car. My son in law's 1977
Honda which has 2 millon miles on it,
lasted longer than my old Linclon.
Next I plan to buy a Sabb or a Honda
or even a Toyota instead of this.
