2003 Lincoln LS Sedan Premium Sport 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)

Review

so i was 9 years old when I first noticed this car ever since then i loved it the look of it the interior everything! fast forward some years and i was 16 looking for my first car i wanted something with v8 speed,wood grain,and nice black leather so that's what i got i bought a 02 ls v8 from a lawyer in ATL with 107xxx and drove it back to Florida where i lived. on the way home a coil went out causing it to misfire a little which was a eazy cheap repair but it was caused by the gasket letting oil into the coils causing them to foul out after that it was all good untill i hit 139xxx ...engine threw a rod and now im out of a car with no resale value

Review

I purchased my car 2 months ago with 80,000 miles on it. The day after I got it, it wouldn't crank. I thought it was the battery. I got a jump and it worked with no problem. It did the same thing the very next day. I tried to get a jump but it wouldn't start. Found out the alternator was bad. I got that fixed. So now I'm noticing that sometimes when I put in in drive, it takes a while to shift and move. I don't know what's going on. I don't know anything about cars but that seems like something dealing with the transmission. After reading some of the other reviews, I'm starting to get worried.

Fun Car but TERRIBLE Build Quality

Review

How are there not more negative reviews? I owned this car until it was 8 years old and sold it. Right around the 80-90K mark, the Transmission gave out. I parked it for several months looking into the problem and found dozens of forums out there with hundreds of people reporting the same problems as mine: loss of 2nd gear and overdrive. I talked to many mechanics and they all had seen plenty of these cars come in because of a poor design by Ford, Lincoln, Mercury. These transmissions were used in the LS, Aviator, Mustang, and several others. The design is 2 servo pistons (steel) that go through the Transmission case which is soft Aluminum. Over time the opening gets bigger, losing 2 gears.

Review

This is truly an amazing car! I have yet to discover a flaw. My LS V8 has everything I could ask for and so much more. It's never given me problems and always gets me plenty of compliments. The look of the car is so classy and elegant. This car is a blast to drive, it's so quick and feels very sporty and luxurious. Why anyone would drive anything else baffles me. This car is perfect. I've driven many luxury cars and nothing compares! This car impresses everyone that sees it. Since I've had mine I have had at least 10 friends buy them because they envied mine. The Jones's wish they could keep up with me!

Unreliable Product

Review

The 2003 Lincoln LS V8 Sport is a very unreliable vehicle. A few days after I took the car home from the dealer 11/2009, all coils had to be replaced. Obviously free of charge since the car was covered under the NY Lemon law. I drove it for almost a year up 10/2010 when the coils appear to have failed again: the car is at a garage right now. I did manage to get 26,000 miles out of the last replacement. Otherwise I have the following issues with this car: A) it was built for people approximately 5" tall: I get leg cramps driving long distance every day (I am 6" tall) and B) it's road handling is really all over the place and dangerous in adverse weather (rain, snow).

Might have been good when new.

Review

I purchased my LS in June of 2009 for $7,000. I am going to give it to the local vo-tech because it has almost no trade in value and I can't imagine what private individual this car would be good for. Almost every month I have owned this car, I have had to repair something electronic. There are more $500 - $1000 gizmos on this thing than you can imagine. I had hoped that I was getting them all repaired and wouldn't have any more problems but I am starting to replace some things a second time. This car is extremely complex. Some of the parts are designed by Jaguar. When luxury features fail, you don't just lose the feature, you lose basic functions.

I bought the car with 23000 miles on it. After I had the car six weeks, it was in the shop. I had to replace a coil package...$800. I was told my warranty would not cover it?? I have replaced oxygen sensors (twice), ignition coils, and wheel bearings. The check engine light STAYS ON as well as the ABS light. It is now currently in the shop for ETC FAIL SAFE MODE. I will NEVER buy another Ford product!!!!!!

GAS GOBBLER

Review

I just bought a Lincoln LS 2003 V8 and man does it drink da gas. Im using 93 octane and can only afford to drive around da block. I want to put 20" inch wheels on it but I don't even know if I am going to have it this long cause I can't afford da gas. Please tell me if any one is having the same problems. I've drove V8's before but this is a bit crazy over 3 days I spent almost 100 bucks in gas and only went around the corner. Yea its nice inside but the sits are not right for me I am 6'4 and it seems like it was built for 5'8 person.

Yes, this car was built to compete with the European sport luxury sedans, and not only complete, they topped them! If not for the transmission it would have been top rated overall but slipped a bit as it's not so great at low rpms. But it is one of the smoothest transmissions you will operate and on the highway it shines! Great power @ upper speeds too! This car is rated as one of the TOP 5 safest cars of ALL TIME! I love it's understated elegance and the engineers put some work with the all aluminum fenders and hood and putting the battery in the trunk to acheive a 50-50 weight balance and is one of the reasons for the superior handling. The alum. J-8 eng. is sweet! The Jaguar platform too!
