2004 Lincoln LS Sport 4dr Sedan (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


I have always owned Fords. Generally like 'em. Stepped up with this one and what a disappointment. Lincoln forgot to pay attention to detail. The transmission takes weeks to downshift so the V-8 power is squandered. The "automatic rain sensitive" wipers are a constant irritant. Throttle tip-in acts more like a 4-cylinder turbo than a V8. The dumb "all windows down and sunroof open" feature activates if the button on the fob is accidentally pushed so the car filled with rain one night. In general, a great potential that has been wrecked by lack of attention to detail. Should have gotten an Impala and saved the money.

Best Features

Favorite feature would be the V-8 if it weren't for the lousy transmission and molasses-like tip-in.

Worst Features

Responsive transmission, manual override for the stupid wipers, lose the "all windows down" nonsense, struts on trunklid so the hinges don't intrude like on a 62 Falcon. Maybe ask the Honda folks for a little help in the details department.
