2003 Lincoln LS Sport 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
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).
The Jaguar V8 engine is a lot of fun and the car accelerates really fast. The audio controls and cruise control in the steering wheel is really convenient.
Not applicable since this car has been retired from Lincoln's product line.
