2002 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)

Review

First impression after owning my 2002 LS8 sport one week and driving it 600 miles. I have experimented with the SelectShift transmission in various situations and so far it has performed well. I have not experienced the problems that I see mentioned frequently in reviews. If I shift it as one would normally do with a manual when RPMs are at a reasonable level, it reacts without delay and shifts smoothly. Even when shifting more aggressively, the transmission performs well.

Favorite Features

I am most impressed by the way the car behaves when pushed hard through curves. It holds the road very well.

Suggested Improvements

One suggestion for improvement is to offer alternatives to Sprint for the Vehicle Communication System. Another is to eliminate the steering wheel mounted 'mode' switch for the audio system. I have inadvertantly activated this on multiple occasions.
