1988 Lincoln Mark VII LSC 5.0 V8 from North America
An impressive 5.0 under the hood of a luxury car!
Transmission required a rebuild.
Air suspension light on.
Trunk rusted and began leaking.
Climate control requiring replacement of the entire A/C system.
Leather seat on driver's side cracked/ripped.
Cup holders broken.
Driver's power door lock broke.
This car pulls away from any stoplight with authority and stops easily for a car of its size.
Received many compliments on the styling.
Handled our Hawaiian roads beautifully.
The car rusted easily between the corner of the rear windshield and trunk, causing a leak.
One day the single serpentine drive belt broke without warning; an easy fix.
I made the most common mistake of that time for this model, which was using the heater, then selecting air conditioning. Shortly thereafter my air conditioner became out of service and the climate control lights would blink. I'm told it's a common fault for this model.
The car would lower to the ground occasionally while parked overnight due to a fault in the air suspension. I enjoyed this car so much, I traded it in for the next version, the Mark VIII.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
