Beautiful car that costs a lot; looks good in your local FORD garage... that's where it will be
My LINCOLN LS V8 and the FORD dealership are breaking my heart! First week I owned it, windshield wiper arm broke off... during heavy rain (nice). Took three trips in to FORD to get replaced.
Several months later, the advance track (traction control) went out. I live in Minnesota... it was December. Took 2 trips to FORD to figure out what was wrong.
CD's started getting stuck in player. FORD checked it multiple times and said there was nothing wrong with it. After several more complaints, FORD sent in Alpine stereo to be fixed. My LS was supposed to be under warranty. They told me I would have to pay at least 10-15% of the cost of repair.
The day they had my car in the shop to re-install my radio, they brought it back to me and the A/C no longer worked. They were also supposed to change my oil and A/C filter. They didn't change the A/C filter, because they forgot to order it. I called them and asked if it was possible if they forgot to hook some wire back up causing the controls to not work. They agreed it was possible. Inspected wires and said my car, "must have fixed itself"! Awesome. Only the A/C still didn't work all the time. Once the car gets hot it kinda works in driver's side, then not at all. Not even the vented air comes in. I think FORD broke my A/C. They claim there is no way. But they had my car for just a few hours and the A/C had NO prior problems. Estimated repair $650.00. Very conveniently, my car is JUST out of warranty, too.
I went straight to my local FORD general manager and asked for his help. He offered me nothing. I told him I am 27 years old and this is my first and last FORD vehicle. I am very heartbroken.
I love the look and the feel inside and out of this beauty!
Handles beautifully and is fast! Get compliments on it all the time.
Just wish the mechanics lived up to my expectations of a LINCOLN.
I think my main problem is my local FORD dealership.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
