"I bought this car used as a replacement runaround vehicle. This car has been GREAT! Great power, great looks, luxury and handling. I've heard horror stories from other about issues they have had with this model, and all I can say is you got to give these cars service, treat them right and they will treat you right. Expensive? Don't know as I have only had to replace tires and the oil changes, but plan on spending for upkeep.....it's a luxury car! Want cheap get a lesser vehicle..."
Cons: "Little rear leg room. If your under 6' no worries."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"I have owned my 03 lincoln ls for over 7 years now. I have no complaints its a great vehicle it handles excellen. Still looks beautiful. And that 3.9 v8 picks up and goes. Wish lincoln had continued making them."
"I feel like I was part of the birth of this car! Working at Ford on the launch of this vehicle I understood that it was their first attempt at an entry level Lincoln in 2000.
As I worked with the marketing office I was impressed with the team spirit as they included members of the manufacturing teams for the launch to ensure we had a flawless execution! Never in my career had I ever seen that happen!
Enough of the history.. This is by far the best car I have ever owned!! I have owned new cars before but have NEVER owned own one that I wanted to keep after 100,000 miles. It has been the most reliable and dependable car EVER!
The styling, which sold me, the driving dynamics and dependability/reliability make this a car I will never sell! Yes, I have had it at the dealer for every 3,000 mile oil change, check up for the normal 15,000, 30,000... etc., and brakes pads. I have had suspensions replaced and that is the only expensive repairs other than normal wear and tear!
Why they discontinued building this outstanding vehicle is beyond me! The styling is timeless. The dependability is outstanding. I just invested in new Michelin tires to illustrate how much I love this vehicle and will keep driving it as long as I can! It has taken car of me and I have taken care of it!
The BEST car I have EVER OWNED!!!! I am 61 ... So that is quite the endorsement!
My only regret, I did not order heated seats as I live in MI."
"Iv own my 03 ls about 7 years now. Got it with 49,000 miles and its now at 84500 It's been a good vehicle. I think it's well built and designed. Iv never had any mayor issues. I say It's all about maintenance you have to take care of it so it will take care of you."
