Keep moving... by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/09/2012. Trim: 2000 Lincoln LS V6 Automatic, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Great styling, good in the snow with traction control. Drives great when it's running well.
Cons: This has been the least reliable car I have ever owned by far. I have owned the car for a little over 4 years now and put 45k miles on it. Every 6 months something breaks on the car. The valve cover gaskets leak (known problem), shorting out the $100+ coil packs and causing misfires. The problem is that you need to remove the intake manifold to get to the 3 on the passenger side (very expensive). I've also had to replace the water pump, a $150 radiator hose, coolant tank, tie rod ends, window regulators, inside door handle. There is even a foam! gasket that keeps water out of the engine. Well, when they leak (I've replaced it 4 times now), it drips water directly on the rear coil pack!
Overall review: Please look elsewhere for a car, unless you are a mechanic or have lots of money to burn. It runs great when it's running well, which is rare. I even ran out of room above to list the cons. Awful gas mileage, must use premium.
