As a long owner of Ford/Lincoln products this car is very understated.
Very quick for a 4 door with the 32 valve/285HP V8.
The only issues I have had with the car in 100,000 miles is coil packs which are covered by ford for 10yrs or 100.000 miles.
If you buy one used, check with ford. They have replaced all of them.
The other concern was the cooling system.
IF the car has over 75K, I recommend cooling tank and plastic pipe-like hoses be replaced and whatever else the service technician may recommend.
I alway recommend transmission fluid service every 40K or so to keep the additives fresh.

I now have 179,000 kms on this POS and its still "nickel and diming" me to death.
The front end is rattling again after it had front struts, sway bar links, and tie rod ends installed at 145,000 Kms.
The E-brake light is on and beeping.
I don't use it so I don't understand why it would need service.
The traction control switch fell through the hole in the console for no apparent reason.
I had to replace the power steering pump because it was leaking badly.
The oil pan is leaking again, at least I think it's the oil pan.
The coil packs (5th set) are due to be changed again because the car stutters at times and that lets me know the coil packs will need changing soon. FORD - you suck!!!

I purchased my 2005ls in 2006 with 20,000 miles on it. Now has 60,000. Nice body style but... Buyer beware! I have had a lot of trouble with this car and its in the shop again today. Always a problem with coils, the engine and other things. Reliability is very poor. I believe there should be recalls for these problems. Can any one help?
Let me start out by telling you guy the story on this car. I bought this car really cheap from a friend that owns a pawn shop. The car is a 2005 Lincoln ls v6 with 61k. I took it to ADVANCED AUTO and ...
Well, my wife's '95 SHO is really dying and we've been driving just about everything on 4 wheels over the last year and the only thing that she feels approaches the SHO's ride and power (without spend...
