2005 Lincoln LS Ultimate 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My car had all maintenance records and all original paperwork. It was a special car that had been extremely well taken care of. I love this car, it is still perfect on the highway, no sounds whatsoever inside. Has powerful pickup when needed and still has a beautiful exterior line. I love it.

2005 Lincoln LS Sport 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Memory seats/mirrors etc.. CD Changer Ability to go from 55 to 90 in a blink.


Worst Features

I liked the electronic shocks in the 90's Tbird SCs. When you drove normal, the car was touring and when you braked, turned hard or accelerated the car stiffed the ride for performance. I think others like Mazda did this also. Bring rear wheel drive sedans like this back to Lincoln.

2005 Lincoln LS Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

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!!!

2005 Lincoln LS Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

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?

Review

I'm the not so proud owner of a '05 LS V6.
This car has been a royal pain since I bought it. It's got 130K kms on it now.
I can't keep coils or catalytic converters on it to save my a_ _.
I contacted Ford 3 times and all I got was lip service from there complaint desk.
I've been stranded so many times and spent so much money on this piece of garbage in repairs it's ridiculous.
I was planning on buying a MKS but after all this pain it's not going to happen.


Best Features

Absolutely nothing!!!!


Worst Features

Don't buy a Lincoln.
