I love this car. I bought it in 2002 with 100,000 miles. I now have abour 120,000 miles. The things I love are the exterior styling, the road handling, the look I get from anyone that sees it. It is a black Special Edition LSC. It has the best stereo I have ever heard. It does not have a smooth ride, it has a badass ride!! I have had to do a little maintenance (it has 120,000 miles) but the motor and transmission is good. Most of the work has been brakes, shocks, air conditioner, relatively minor things. I consider it to be the least expensive vehicle I have ever owned, given the low maintenance expense. This is a fine car!! I can't imagine how another would turn me on any more!!
bought used and have had very few problems,car is rock solid-and no leaks or rattles, i have yet to align any of the marks i have owned (5), no tire wear whatsoever!great road cruiser it gets 24 mpg at 70 mph. i hate where they placed the fog light switch!
Bought this car from a friend who had
It garaged when not being driven. But
so far, no problems at all, I love
it. Me being a in my early 20's look
forward to saving up and buying the
new LS. Main problems: Had to
replace both power door locks, have
trouble with it overheating when hot
outside and standing still.
Keyless entry with keypad. On Board
computer. Glass Sunroof
Even with the V8 engine its
acceleration is still slow at best.
Extremly happy Lincoln did away with
the hump in the back of their cars, in
my opinion just plain ugly.
The cruise control went out within the
first year of ownership. The next item
was a tie rod end which was still
covered under the warranty. At 67,000
miles, the transmission had to be
overhauled. Also about the same time,
the alternator had to be replaced. At
110,000 miles, the automatic door
locking system had to be rebuilt. Over
the last two years, the airconditioning
system has cost me $600.00. More recent
repairs have involved replacing the
water pump and a leaky power steering
line, and replacing both front end tie
rod ends. Note that front end
alignments are a regular expense since
it chews up tires.
Great styling. The Mark VIII was a big
disappointment and could never compete.
Component reliability has been the
biggest problem with this car.
