Lincoln's lost their build quality

Vehicle2003 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewWith 21 years and 400K miles driving Lincolns, I loved them and bought the '03. More annoying issues with this car than I've had in 20 years. Vibration at idle is built-in and can't be corrected. Compared to older Lincolns,the car has poor acceleration from low RPMs with poorer gas mileage and a smaller gas tank.Contrary to the manual-duplicated pages-doesn't have DSP.Left out an AM filter so the AM reception was a return to the '50s. With a fix,dash now rattles. Gas tank cover wouldn't open. Lincoln won't communicate. Comparing features, Lincoln designers have done next to nothing in 10 years. I take that back-- they took the quality out.
Best FeaturesRide quality is still great.
Worst FeaturesA GPS option that doesn't require a Sprint telephone. Build something I can trust again.Take builder's responsibility for your quality and quit blaming the dealer for every issue. A regional Lincoln rep said "Did my dealer instruct me on how to open the gas tank?"
