2005 Lincoln LS from North America


It was my dream car, however, I don't think that it has been worth it


I have owned my 2005 LS for two years. It has usually, but rarely run correctly.

I have had to have the rack and pinion, ring and pinion, the power steering pump, and FIVE of my six engine cylinder coils replaced.

I've had one transmission leak and two oil leaks.

The driver's headrest, ashtray, and door locks have also had to be repaired.

This afternoon, it has started blowing hot air only. I think that the thermostat is either stuck, or I have bigger problems now...

General Comments:

I am severely disappointed in this car. I understand now why Lincoln discontinued the LS model.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

We have a 2005 LS Lincon.

I have been a dissatisfied customer ever since I drove it out of the lot. So far this car has had to have coil packs, advance track light blinking on and off like a tornado light, all new brakes, and a 3 way air conditioning valve replaced, "the oil change required" light will not go off, probably a green wire in one of the 3 power boxes it has. Let's not forget the 650.00 high intensity headlight.

I will sell, trade, burn, or scrap. Anyway this little ordeal has cost me so far 3500.00.

Could have been better..


The ABS is faulty and has been in for repair multiple times. The ABS will kick in when making slow stops no matter what the road conditions. Service department can never "duplicate" problem. The ABS light will come on and go off at random times, even on the driest of pavements.

The car is starting to make creaking noises when I go over bumps and turn the steering wheel. Noise comes from the driver's side. That should be the next surprise on my list.

The A/C and heat smells horrible on the car. The dealer suggested to replace the cabin filter on the car. It did not fix or help the problem. In for service for this issue, and the service dept. manager told me it was due to moisture? Told me there was no way to fix it. It is truly embarrassing for a car so beautiful to smell so horrible.

General Comments:

The car cabin is quiet and the ride is smooth. Other than that, the car has some issues that should have been worked out before it ever hit the production lines.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

It is most likely mold growth after the drainage hose got clogged. Do a google search on getting rid of AC odors. There are plenty hits.

I own a 2004 Lincoln LS. The air conditioner went out this summer and it took over a month and a half to get it repaired. The local Ford dealership used all of their master technicians to no avail. The problem was finally repaired when someone came from the Ford main headquarter. As of now, I have paid out a little over 650.00. This is not the end of my story, the brakes are now malfunctioning. My first and last Lincoln.
