2000 Lincoln LS V8 Sport V8 from North America
It's a great looking car, but not built for time, this car will nickle and dime you
Replaced 4 coil packs.
Transmission stalled and a spring needed to be replaced.
Airbag spring is out, which means the driver's airbag will not deploy.
Thermostat went out.
Hydraulic cooling fan is not cooling the engine fast enough, causing the engine to overheat.
The trunk compartment hatch detached and does not function.
Constant condensation in fog lamps.
The chrome from the rims have peeled, allowing constant air to leak from 2 tires.
When there are no problems with the car, it has good power and handles extremely well. The stereo system inside the car is the best I've ever owned, including BMW's. The best part is the curb appeal. The car looks sharp day or night.
For the first three years I had few problems. However, once the car hit 90K miles the American craftsmanship showed. I have spent $6,000 on repairing this car in the past 18 months, and another $4,500 would be needed to get it to performing as it should.
Lincoln dealers suck. The two I've dealt with never complete work when they say they will, and never solve the problem the first time. Lexus, Audi, and BMW take much better care of their customers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
