Review of the 2001 Lincoln LS

  • Want a BMW 540i? Buy one, because the LS is no substitute, even at a fraction of the price. But it does handle brilliantly, it is comfortable, and it looks good.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Confident steering and handling, choice of either a V6 or V8 engine, comfortable and roomy interior, clean exterior design.

  • Cons

    Acute lack of interior storage space, V8's transmission isn't as good as expected, questionable build quality.

  • What's New for 2001

    V6 models now come with standard traction control and optional AdvanceTrac. All models receive a glow-in-the-dark manual trunk release…

Worst car i ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)

problems since day 1, terrible reliability with this car. I wont even start listing the issues cause it pains me. I'm a mechanic and this is one of the worst cars to work on. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from the LS.




Time to let her go

Vehicle: 2001 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)

I purchased this car for my wife and for the first 3 years of owning the car it was great. Slowly things started going wrong which I guess is normal. CD quit working, passeger door lock quit opening, gas door stopped opening, that kind of thing. at 89k it developed a spudder when you stepped on the gas. After some research I realized it was either one of two fuel pumps or a coil. Pumps were $300 bucks a piece, coils were $50 a piece. I have replaced one coil already and I liken it to performing surgery, not fun to work on this car at all. Its a great car when it runs well but a nightmare to work on and very expensive to maintain when things start going bad. Trade in value is horrible.

I owned a 01 Lincoln LS until 12/23/09 and the reason for that is someone rear ended me and pushed me into oncoming traffic i then collided with a mustang i had 3 people plus me in the car we all walked away with just scraps and bruises that lincoln LS saved my family and my lives I will never drive anything else i will only feel safe in the lincoln so i am now shopping for a another one....

Full 2001 Lincoln LS Review

What's New for 2001

V6 models now come with standard traction control and optional AdvanceTrac. All models receive a glow-in-the-dark manual trunk release and child safety-seat anchor points. The sport package has a new 17-inch chrome wheel design and a mini spare tire and wheel instead of the previous 16-inch nonmatching aluminum wheel (both late availability). Inside, there is an additional power point, a revised cupholder design, an optional in-dash six-disc CD changer and an optional mirror-mounted compass. The height-adjustable rear-seat head restraints have been deleted from V8 automatics. Four new exterior colors are offered. Lincoln now offers complimentary maintenance at no additional charge for the first three years/36,000 miles in service.
