2003 Lincoln LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I went with the LS V6 for price
reasons, and my only dissapointment is
that I couldn't get the 17" rims with
the 6-cylinder.
I've driven previous models with the V6
and the improvements for 2003 are very
evident. The throttle actuation is
smooth and the power is sometimes
surprising when accelerating from a
stoplight. The engine gets a bit loud
at higher RPMs, but is always smooth.
The ride can feel a bit soft sometimes,
but, never floaty, it always feels
connected to the road. The suspension
is well-damped and does a great job at
dealing with bumps and imperfections.
While it's not a hard-core sports
sedan, it always stays planted in the

Best Features

The AdvanceTrac option kept me out of the ditches this past Winter. This is a must-have feature. The pwr tilt/tele steering column offers infinate levels of wheel position. I like being able to change bands, vol, and presets without having to take my hands off the wheel.

Worst Features

Color match on the black interior needs improvement. The doors are a slighly different shade and gloss level than the materal on the Instrument Panel. The quality of the leather that came with the base pkg is not on par with this segment. It has a cheap feel and appearance.
