2001 Lincoln LS V6 from North America
American made... but not made for Americans, we are hard working people!
When I bought the car, I immediately had to go to muffler man and replace the catalytic converter, and the resonator, and then I had get a transmission flush, which I thought would solve the problem of jerking when changing gears, but it didn't.
Then I had to get all new rotors and pads all the way around, and I had had to replace the inside door handle, and also 2 new sensors, and now I'm hearing some weird noise coming from around the flywheel area..
This car is really a piece of junk. I really wish that I would have seen this site before I purchased it.
It's nice because I'm used to driving German cars and this LS was very appealing to me when I saw the leather and all the wood and the nice factory stereo system.
It had a very good wheelbase length and also a very good size, but this car is hands down the worst thing that Lincoln has produced in years.
America is in a depression right now, and Bill Ford is not making it any better; he is supposed to be doing what his grandfather was doing back in his day, and that's making reliable cars for the American people, and he is not doing anything remotely close to that by distributing 100% pure junk, that looks good on the outside, but is not mechanically reliable in the engine compartment.
I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I'm going back to the German engineered cars, they really know how to treat their people, they build theirs to last, and at the price that gas is right now, that's what I need... a car that's going to last after I put $85 worth of premium fuel in the tank, instead of breaking down and making me get a water hose and suck the gas out, and put it in a German made moped!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You bought a used car with 170,000 miles that you do not know the history of. Were you expecting it to be in showroom condition?
Take a look at some of the reviews of the German cars on this site if you want to see real junk. Even Consumer Reports has had to admit that their quality has dropped to pathetic levels in recent years.
