Air suspension had to be replaced the day I bought it.
Fuel pump had to be replaced.
Trunk lid pull-down had to be replaced. I got a cheap one from a junkyard. It took two tries to get one that worked, but now it works fine.
Air conditioner evaporator core had to be replaced. System was converted to R-130 coolant, as the Freon would have cost $150 just to charge it.
Needs a new water pump.
Needs muffler work.
Rear passenger side window doesn't work.
Leather seats are showing some wear.
The digital instrument panel is so weak that it is barely visible in daylight.
The fan motor doesn't work when the heater is set to "Floor." You have to run the defroster if you want heat to your feet.
The car rides like a dream. It is blissfully quiet, especially on the highway. The bolstered seats are wonderfully comfortable, and I love all the interior room.
The sound system is creditable.
It is fairly reliable.
However repairs tend to be expensive, particularly at a Lincoln dealer.
For such a big car, I get decent gas mileage--22-23 highway, less in town. I fill it up for $25-28.
I bought this car with high miles for just over $2000. The previous owners had had it dealer maintained, and had kept it in a garage. It had been repainted, thanks to hailstorm damage which was covered by their insurance.
I've had to make some repairs, but overall the car shows no sign of slowing down. My friends tell me I need a new car, but I say, "Why?" Why spend all that money for something half as good. I'll fix what goes wrong with this car and keep it on the road.
I plan on driving to Colorado this summer.
