I almost bought a 2006 Lincoln Ls & took it to my Mechanic & he also ran a computer diagnostics on it too & he told us to walk away from these type cars. They will cost you loads of money to fix & it basically runs on a computer system like 6 if not more. So if anything goes wrong with this car your looking at lots of money to dish out & it will break your bank/ pocketbook. They are very nice cars, not worth the price and money in the long run, if this type car runs into any problems. The engine coil goes out in these cars quite often. That’s about $450 including labor for each coil & the front struts run on a computer system as well & cost around $450 each side to fix. Not worth it! Your better off with a Honda.
I bought it with 82000 miles. Less than 4 months and 3000 miles later 3 engine coils steering pump, ac switch and park brake $1000 in repairs and that's with the dealership covering half of everything. Still owe 8 grand worst car ive ever purchased. Put the car in park and RUN AWAY. you can thank me later.
I have had little maintenance. Bought used from a dealer as a program car with 9K. Maintenance in 7.5 years includes: set of tires, new battery, front brake pads & turn rotors, new fan belt, oil / filter chg. every 3K, and keep it spotless. Great fun to drive and comfortable on long trips.
I put 150K on a 2001 LS without incident and then traded it for the 2006 with 5K.I have been very happy with this car in every single way and now have over 160K miles on it. The only issue I've had was replacing the thermostat. It's a bit of a challenge and the guy changing it (me) didn't get the housing tight the first time. No issues after that. Runs great, drives great, gets decent mpg and still looks good. I'd buy a new one tomorrow if they still made them.
