Lincoln's sport sedan goes into 2003 with more than 500 changes. The V8 sports 28 more horsepower, while the V6 benefits from a 12-horsepower increase. Both engines are controlled by drive-by-wire throttle, and drink slightly less fuel than their 2002 counterparts. Unfortunately, Lincoln decided to kill the five-speed manual that was available with the V6. Meanwhile, the rack and pinion steering has been improved, and Lincoln says it has softened the ride without degrading the car's handling abilities. In terms of safety, Lincoln has added a BrakeAssist function, side curtain airbags (late availability) and power-adjustable pedals. As on the 2003 Jaguar S-Type, a new electronically activated parking brake improves the stowage capability of the center console. Also on the inside, you'll find vastly improved interior materials for the seat and dash, along with little touches like one-touch up and down front windows and a host of new options. Outside you'll find slightly altered fascias front and rear and a host of new wheel choices.
Laura's old car was costing her a small fortune every month for gas and repairs. She didn't even want to drive her kids to the park any more. But buying a new Kia Soul changed all that.
