Noise and Brake Hell
By C. Murias on
2003 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Since I bought the car I had to have the front brake pads replaced, transmission fixed, back window fixed and recently the front hub barring, with only 35K miles. Before I had the brakes replaced they squealed and after the brakes were replaced they squealed and continue to squeal. My brake pedal itself makes a rubbery squeaky noise, which the dealer has told me there is nothing wrong. After taking it in about 5 times, they tell me that this is a common problem and known defect and there is nothing they can do about it. I would not recommend this car, especially if you do not want to have a car in the shop all the time. It is nice to have maintenance free car, but come on.
I like the auto headlights, the reverse sensor, and the ride is nice.
Fix the brake problems, make the trunk larger, and get the car to a more reliable and resale value.
