2002 Lincoln LS V6 from North America
Nice to drive until the warranty expires
Front window regulator, ignition coil at about 80,000 K, which cost me $750.
Drivers side air bag light came on and traction control light stayed solid; I drove for a year with it before fixing both, which cost me $350.
Just rebuilt the transmission July 2009 since it simply would not engage in reverse. No noticeable damage, just wear and tear according to the shop. This ended up costing me $2900.
The same day I got the car back, there was a heavy squeaking noise from the rear right spring, which I need to address. No longer liking this car, and would not buy a Ford or American product again.
Car ran pretty well from 2003 with 44000 km until about 80 K without any major issues as all cars should in my opinion. Then minor issues until 125 K where the transmission needed to be rebuilt.
The car has its good points, but does not compare to the repairs needed to be done, the cost and how early they appear.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
