Review of the 2002 Lincoln LS

  • Dynamically, Lincoln has nailed the suspension and steering we love in European sport sedans, and with BMW 5 Series size at a 3 Series price, we see why the LS is winning entry-luxury buyers over. But there is work to do, namely with regard to the automatic transmission and weak interior materials.

  • 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 2002

    The LS' already handsome appearance can be further enhanced with the LSE appearance package that includes 17-inch two-tone Blade Grey wheels, a unique front fascia, round foglights, modified Blade Grey grille with color-keyed upper trim piece, side rocker panels and rear valance, low profile spoiler, dual stainless-steel exhaust tips and LSE floor mats. Lincoln makes an in-dash CD changer standard for 2002 (with Alpine Audiophile components on Sport models) and restyles the 16-inch alloy wheels on non-Sport V6 and V8 versions. A Vehicle Communication System, which provides a voice-activated Motorola Timeport mobile phone, is optional and includes safety and security services, route guidance and access to weather reports, stock quotes and sports scores. Three new colors replace three old ones.

Great road car, highly reliable

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Base V6, purchased new, June 2002. Trouble free since. It's a great long- distance road car, ok as daily driver. Great handling, great suspension, great brakes. Ok engine. Transmission has to think a lot; upshifts are ok, but it positively cringes at even the hint of a downshift. Over-the-road mileage is 22-23, commuting is about 19. Supposed to use 91 Octane gas.




Love this car!

Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Bought new, hitting 115,000 miles now, and still going strong. It is a beautiful car inside and out. I keep thinking it's getting old and maybe I need to replace it, but I can't find a comparable car in size, quality, luxury features, comfort, performance, and "reasonable cost" anywhere. The seats are also extremely comfortable - even on very long rides. It also has the "get up and go" needed when you're entering highways, passing, etc. I have always kept it up, and I still get many compliments on it's look/style. I really wish Lincoln would come out with this again.




I love my car!

Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

We bought this car in 08, with 42000 original miles on it in immaculate condition. We went from a Chevy Blazer to the Lincoln LS. What a difference! We got the deal of the century, and couldn't be happier!




Bang for the buck

Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Very reliable car, better than the two BMW's I owned. Smooth, quiet ride. Tranny is starting to go at 94K but that's normal for these cars. I'll get it replaced. Looks great and other than the two coil packs that failed and the locked up rear caliper the car has been a real joy. I'll keep it another 94K and laugh at all the dopes with the leased status symbols they can barely afford.

Bound to be a classic

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

When it comes to collectability, a vehicle's: styling, quality, performance, and enjoyability are paramount. Lincoln's LS, which had a relatively short production life, certainly is stylish inside and out, and is extremely reliable. Reliability alone can make owning a car enjoyable, but one's appreciation for the LS is found in its sporty ride and excellent handling.

Lincoln ls 2002 premium

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

My 2002 Lincoln LS, Premium, has been very reliable, comfortable, and enjoyaalbe. The most impressive aspect of the LS is its superior handling characteristics, especially in cornering and emergency avoidance maneuvers. The LS's Advance Trac system combined with winter tires enables the vehicle to climb all of Pittsburgh's snowy hills without trouble. The performance from the V6 is more than adequate, and the transmission shifts smoothly and flawlessly, even in our hilly terrain. After owning very acceptable vehicles such as Avalons and Camrys, I strongly believe the Lincoln LS is the most reliable and enjoyable vehicle I have owned.
