2001 Lincoln LS 3.9 Liter V8 from North America
Worst car I have ever owned
Had to replace the alternator 3 months after I bought the car. Cost $500.
Rear window regulator had to be placed 6 months after I bought the car. Cost $250.
New brakes and rotors.
Replace fuel filter twice. Cost $75 each time for a total cost of $150.
Car just went into the dealership this morning for hesitation problem. Diagnoses was valve cover gasket leaking oil extremely bad into spark plug wells and needed replacement; cost $1300 plus the cost of a tune up (new spark plugs, etc.). Total cost $1600.
Overall this has been the most disappointing experience I have ever had in owning a car. Like so many others, I was drawn by the looks of the car, but the repair costs have definitely made me regret ever purchasing this vehicle.
Since I have sunk so much money into it so far, I plan on keeping it a couple more years, then trading it in for a more reliable Japanese nameplate.
Anyone even considering buying one of these cars, should turn and run as fast as possible in the other direction.
It's no wonder the American car manufacturers are losing buyers and can't turn a profit. Their cars are by far the most unreliable on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
