2003 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car, even with a v-6 it hauls ass. It is also a chick magnet, everyone at work wants to take a ride in it. the only problens I have had are the transmission kicking really hard while down shifting from 2nd to 1st gear other than that this car is great all around. Oh one other thing it could use a air conditioner that gets colder quiker.


Best Features

the whole car is my favorite, with its sharp lines and chrome exterior to its rich leather and kickin sound system.


Worst Features

more aftermarket parts would be great more standard features and mabey a slight redesign for the next model year and drop the v-6 as a standard and put the v-8 as a standard then make a more powerful v-8 for the LSE model

2003 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I went with the LS V6 for price reasons, and my only dissapointment is that I couldn't get the 17" rims with the 6-cylinder. I've driven previous models with the V6 and the improvements for 2003 are very evident. The throttle actuation is smooth and the power is sometimes surprising when accelerating from a stoplight. The engine gets a bit loud at higher RPMs, but is always smooth. The ride can feel a bit soft sometimes, but, never floaty, it always feels connected to the road. The suspension is well-damped and does a great job at dealing with bumps and imperfections. While it's not a hard-core sports sedan, it always stays planted in the curves.


Best Features

The AdvanceTrac option kept me out of the ditches this past Winter. This is a must-have feature. The pwr tilt/tele steering column offers infinate levels of wheel position. I like being able to change bands, vol, and presets without having to take my hands off the wheel.


Worst Features

Color match on the black interior needs improvement. The doors are a slighly different shade and gloss level than the materal on the Instrument Panel. The quality of the leather that came with the base pkg is not on par with this segment. It has a cheap feel and appearance.

Review

I found the V6 model to provide excellent performance and handling. This car is fun to dive while still providing an upscale image of a Lincoln.

Review

I intended to buy a 4.2 Jaguar or a BMW 540 or 530 when I stumbled on the LS V8 Sports Model. What a find! This car compares very well with either in terms of performance, styling and surpasses them in comfort and value. Nimble, lots of power, and all the conveniences only an American luxury car can deliver. This car is a winner. Seats four comfortably, big trunk, THX sound system, right size.


Best Features

Style, rain sensing wipers, ample power, value, covered routine maintenance


Worst Features

Boost gasoline mileage.
