2000 Lincoln LS V8 from North America
After owing, I regret trading in my BMW
Air conditioning compressor line leaked. Cost $800 to repair.
Rear window regulator failed. Repaired under warranty. Dealer did admit they see many LS with bad regulators, but no recall.
Rear wheel bearing failed at 50K miles.
Air conditioning malfunctioned by blowing hot air out driver side while blowing cold air out passenger side. Took dealer one week to repair under warranty.
Wheel lug bolts have a steel decorative cover which easily bends and makes bolt removal very difficult. It becomes impossible to use proper socket for removal.
Center interior console is made from plastic which squeaks and rattles if used with quality and finish not consistent with brand name.
I wanted this car since I saw it in 2000.
It has tremendous power and handling characteristics.
Interior is comfortable.
Split drop down seats are terrific.
Fuel mileage for V-8 is good (city 22, hwy. 27)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
