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


Review

I owned an early 2000 LS V8 and enjoyed the car so much, I ordered a 2003 model as soon as they were introduced. The LS does everything well. From outstanding acceleration to responsive handling, this car exudes poise and class. I should also mention that I bought a new 2002 Thunderbird -- the LS's kissing cousin.


Best Features

Powertrain and suspension are superb, but the little things are nice too. For example, moisture-sensitive (adapative) windshield wipers, electronic parking brake, heated AND cooled seats, fold- down rear seat. etc., etc. Look closely, and you'll discover what a great value the LS is!


Worst Features

Add a lamp to illuminate the inside of the large storage compartment in the center console. It's hard to see in there when it's dark outside!

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


Review

The strong points of this car are its performance. Acceleration and handling are both excellent. This adds up to a very safe high performing car. If you drive freeway this car allows you to get on and through spaces in traffic without any effort. The car tracks very stable and predictably at all speeds through varying tightness and undulating turns. The interior is clean and logically laid out, good rear seat room nice view with theater seating, very good stereo and easy to use NAV system. 7000 miles and no issues. Dealer has performed oil change no charge, the 3 year 36000 mi free maintenance is a great bargain.


Best Features

Performance including acceleration, handling at all speeds, steering quick but has enough feed back , THX nav, exterior styling, interior is well laid out and easy to use, 3 years / 36000 mile service


Worst Features

Brakes are a little soft then engage, alloy wheel style.

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


Review

The LS is billed as a combination of luxury and performance and delivers both, especially performance. The V-8 is smooth and has plenty of power and torque, but the most impressive thing about the car is the handling. It's responsive, goes where you point it and corners like it's on rails -- a real thrill to drive! I considered earlier models, but the refinements in the 2003 model sold me. Lincoln obviously listened to owners. I have no regrets so far and would recommend the car. Test drive one and find yourself some curves!


Best Features

The quiet growl of the V-8 when you punch it; superb handling; cooled seats; 60/40 fold-down rear seats; overall appearance; automatic wipers; quiet, smooth ride on the highway -- 70 mph feels like 50.


Worst Features

The seats are comfortable but could be improved with softer padding on the back and more support. The glove box needs to be redesigned.

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


Review

It is a great car to drive EXCEPT in the snow. The car will fish tail.


Worst Features

Make the car all wheel drive. The drivers seat goes back too far when the car is shut off. The person in the back seat can very uncomfortable if they are unaware of this option.

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


Review

We've had the car for a couple months now and its so much fun to drive. Our son drives a 97 Mustang GT manual and this LS could probably beat it in every driving category. The LS has "balance" that the GT just doesn't have. The real-wheel drive together with independent rear suspension really make a difference. Under "severe" conditions I always feel confident in the LS; where in the GT there are many times that I have to "back-off". Lincoln has done a good job in making the suspension, brakes, & wheels very light so that the car absorbs these bumps without transferring the force into the steering wheel or drivers seat.


Best Features

Low threshold to accommodate my big feet. Auto-windshield wipers that actually work. Air cooled seats for Houston's hot & sticky summers. Auto- manual transmission for when I really want control. Rocket like power under the hood. Silky smooth brakes. Seat, etc. setup on the keys.


Worst Features

Adjust the drivers seat to accommodate the heating/cooling machinery so that it doesn't "poke" the driver's bottom. Changing the air-conditioning filter should be a "do-it-your-self" job.
