Review of the 2004 Lincoln LS

  • A smooth, comfortable American sedan with a good heart, but it lacks the refinement and athleticism of its competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Confident steering and handling, optional V8 delivers plenty of smooth and quiet power, comfortable and roomy interior, optional THX-certified sound system.

  • Cons

    Manual transmission no longer offered, build quality lags behind German and Japanese competitors, not as nimble as other sport sedans in its class.

  • What's New for 2004

    The V8 Premium Sport is now called the V8 Ultimate. Minor suspension and transmission upgrades provide less noise and smoother shifts. Sirius Satellite Radio is now a dealer-installed option.

The best car i've ever

A former BMW fan, love this Lincoln. I drive a lot of miles, and it is the best. Wish they had not discontinued the LS. The most comfortable, reliable and just plain fun car I've ever owned!




The only lincoln that matters

I purchased the LS after having to put up with a company issued Taurus. I immediately got a feel for the road again. The LS is glued to the road. It felt secure on turns even high speed ones. I purchased the V6 so the pickup wasn't great, but it was respectable for a V6. I got it in Silver with Grey Leather. The wood trim really made the interior. I upgraded to larger wheels, which gave the exterior a sporty look. As far as maintenance, it was never a problem. I had it in for regular maintenance for the 40,000 miles I had it on the road.




Licoln way to go!

A nice car, not a

Vehicle: 2004 Lincoln LS Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

I purchased my LS 3 months ago "previously owned" with 24k miles. It's a nice car, but not a great car. The ride is firm (depending on the tires) and solid. It's big but doesn't feel big on the road. Exceptional ride on the highway - city driving is unremarkable. In the 3 months I have owned it, we have been in the shop 3 times - transmission, engine knock and noises from the steering column were the causes. You hear too many noises for a car that costs this much. I know I didn't pay sticker, but that's probally the reason the LS is going out of production - it's way overpriced. I got mine for less than half of sticker after only 18 months of use.




Second great ls

Vehicle: 2004 Lincoln LS Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Leased my first LS and am buying this one. Had zero problems with the first one and am enjoying continued reliability with this one. Handles exceptionally well although the performance of the V6 is just average. Average mileage in LA traffic is 20-22. Great navigation system - easy to program and use. Unbelievably good THX sound system. Heated and cooled seats are great but I don't really use them that much. Great road-trip car, extremely comfortable and silent, plus nearly 30 MPG highway (actual). Design is my only complaint - dated but still very clean. Only recommendation would be if you can afford the gas (runs premium) I'd pick up the V8/sport package for performance boost.




Thank you

My experience with my Lincoln LS has been incredible!! The car practically drives itself, and the comfort level is exceptional. My friends and family have made comments that the car is too good for me. I look forward to and look for reasons to drive the car, and my kids love to be seen with Dad in his awesome car. One of my friends daughters refers to my LS as "DeLuca's Limo", now that is flattering.
