Most Unreliable Car I ever Owned

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

Review

I regret the purchase. Lincoln does not stand for quality or luxury. It's just a Ford with a different emblem. It's eaten two batteries in less than 9 months. Ford & the dealer are not standing behind this flawed product. The thing is assembled in Mexico where Ford has quality control issues. The interior finishings are sub-par for a "luxury" car, but fine if it was Ford branded. The touted 1 year maintenance plan is actually a downgrade from a 3 year plan that use to be inclusive. The only good thing about the car is the smooth ride. But that is because it has a Jaguar suspension. But it also has Jaguar electrical systems which are chronically flawed, hence its taste for batteries.

Favorite Features

Very smooth ride due to the use of the Jaguar suspension system.

Suggested Improvements

The death of two batteries in 9 months is ridiculous for a supposed "luxury" car. The lack of "luxury" level quality customer support is appalling. The only thing Ford (It is just a Ford) got right in terms of luxury was the price. Never again will I purchase a Ford product.
