"I have had my LSVS Sport since 2001. This car was purchased for my wife, and was a very reliable car. Only problem we ever had was with the dealership that serviced it. They claimed they repaired thing but didn't. I only found this out after they closed and I had to got to a different dealer.Once they fixed the valve cover gasket and a couple of coil packs good as new.This car gets an average of 25 mpg with my spirited driving( just ask a few mustang GTs how well it performs). Interior quality is great leather is quite supple and comfortable.Even thought she now is my daily drive( beater) love my LS, I talked my sister into buying one."
"Great fun to drive.
V8 oozes power smoothly and effortlessly. Handles smartly. I hit road debris and blew the right front tire at 65mph. Was able to easily slide the car through traffic off to the roadside. Car looks great and is comfortable for a big guy like me (6'5").
Front end doesn't absorb bumps that well so you feel them alot. Had to have some brake work done at 50k. Car has otherwise been repair free.
Leather seats, power seats, sun/moon roof, assorted power things and sound system all great. Enjoyable interior look."
"My 2004 Lincoln LS is a joy to drive. The soft but firm ride makes it seem like the car is cruising on the highway. Steering is easy but responsive. The interior and design of the car are still pleasing to the eye even though it is almost ten years old. I love the power of the V8 engine - this car can definitely move when you want it to :) However, since I bought my car (used) in August 2008) I have had to have coils replaced on my car twice (8 then 6). Note engine coils are a problem with this car model thus it was covered under a special warranty that extended to 10/100,000 per a service bulletin. As a result of the coils going bad, I had to get a new catalytic converter. The catalytic converter was covered under my 8/80,000 warranty. I have had to get a tune-up twice - once at 45,000 miles and again at 85,000 miles. I bought my car at a used, thus I paid much less than I would if it were purchased new. If I had bought it new, I would be very unhappy. Considering the engine coils problems, I could not justify paying full price. The special warranty for the coils will soon end for my car. I don't want to risk the cost and aggravation of replacing coils every few years and the potential damage to the catalytic converter since I will have to pay out of pocket. I will be saving up to buy another car. BTW, 2 people I know with the same car have also had problems with their coils."
