2002 Lincoln LS from North America - Comments

I am looking at getting a Lincoln LSE 2002 for 7000, and it has 100000 miles on it. Is it going to fall apart on the way out of the lot?

My Lincoln LS 2002 is junk, and we have had one problem after another. Ford motor company needs to step up and address these problems with this car. The car itself is a pretty car, but has major problems.

I have had my 2002 Lincoln LS for 3 1/2 years now. And I have also had numerous problems with it.

2 months after I bought it, my driver's side seat heater went out.

Replaced my valve head gasket with all new boots and spark plugs.

Fuel pump went out 5 months after I bought it.

2 window regulators (each back door).

Noticed recently that my trunk is leaking water, just now replacing the wheels since the dealership failed to mention to me that they were corroded, which in South Dakota winters, none of my tires hold air pressure in extreme cold conditions.

Center caps are junk, not worth $25 bucks from the dealership.

Airbag light is on, which means my clockspring is bad.

Also my power steering rack is leaking, which I got an estimate from Ford, and that was $1100. Yeah right, shove that somewhere.

Yes, we've had the Lincoln LS 2002 for the past six years and it has been one thing after the other. How do we go about starting a class-action suit? Anyone know? Have replaced window regulator, sway bar, engine light and airbag lights are both on. Need catalytic converter work done. For an expensive car like this, maintenance itself is expensive enough to keep such as the power coils, etc.

I have had the same problems. My airbag light is on, my sunroof has popped off track and I keep having to replace my coils. I also have an oil leak that I can't find.

The car really isn't worth all this money.

Thanks for the reviews. I was looking at a used 2002 LS, and you just made my decision a whole lot easier.

I too am experiencing coil problems, my passenger side window leaks, and my heated seats went out! WTF, LINCOLN GET IT TOGETHER!!!

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS. It looks great, but it is junk!! I'd had it for two months before it started heating up and had to spend $800 on repairs. I thought that was the end of problems, but two weeks after that the engine light came on because of an oil leak; another $500.

Also the airbag light comes on every so often, and my passenger side also leaks, but it's coming from the sunroof. Tires are also expensive on it due to the width.

After reading all these problems, I'm surprised Ford has NO recalls on this car!!

You say you restore cars? But you claim the transmission is sealed & you can't add fluid. A moment's check would have led you to widely available info. Drain, remove the plug on the side of the trans, fill. Hardly something that someone that restores cars would miss. It would probably take more time to find an oil filter aftermarket, than to learn how to service the trans. BTW, if you do, try using Amsoil, 100k mile interval per their Vegas taxicab study. Sealed? Not.
