03 Lincoln LS 3.0L V6 questions?
The thing that turns me against another Lincoln is that they don't have a performance, rear wheel drive, V8 car to sell me.

there has always been a pretty close version of a ford sports cars as a Lincoln, the mark VII was close to a fox body, the mark VIII was pretty close to a SN95 mustang, at least when they missed the mark on the LS, they also made an equally bad choice on the Tbird.
its definitely time for a RWD car with the new mustang motor again, they could do just like caddy does with the CTS, and use the regular V6 and then throw there beast of a V8 in to it as well, i would settle for a MKS with a 5.0. in Australia, they have a boss 5.4 Falcon, which is pretty much a taurus (size wise, not platform) and the 5.0 is expected to replace the 5.4 because of their newer emission standards.
hell, right now, i would even settle for a RWD version of the 3.5 ecoboost!
Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).
A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.
There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.

2005 Lincoln LS Reviews
COPS have had to be replaced twice - seems to be fairly typical based on other owner comments. The 5R55 transmission has had problems, primarily with the solenoid pack for the lower gears. Even after a complete rebuild it has never worked quite right. Other than those 2 problems, the LS has been a joy to own and drive. Annual maintenance cost me considerably less in adjusted dollars compared to my 2 Pontiac Firebirds (1968 and 1977 models).
Since the COPS (coil on plug) and the 5R55 tranny were basic design flaws, there's really nothing that could be done about them other than regular checks and repairs as required. In 10 years and 84,000 of driving, I've had no other problems with this BMW killer. As with any vehicle, you have to have routine maintenance completed on the manufacturer's schedule.
One other factor is the capability of the mechanics assigned to work on your car. I found 2 dealers (both Lincoln only) who really knew the car and always returned it to me in tip top condition. 2 other dealers (Ford only) worked on the car and just didn't seem to really know what they were doing.
I've belonged to the Lincoln LS Sports Owners Club (LLSOC) since before buying my 2005 LS. Of course, all the members are enthusiasts who love their LSes and are really into driving performance vehicles. We routinely discuss problems we've encountered and offer each other suggestions on how to address those problems. Being actively involved with LLSOC and participating in their forums has helped me maintain my LS and keep it running at peak efficiency.
I believe this Lincoln model has an undeserved reputation for poor reliability. There were problems with the 2000-2003 models - no question. But Ford kept working on the LS till they got it right. The 2004-2006 models were very much the BMW killer that Ford intended the LS to be. I wish they were making a comparable model today. I'd buy it when my current LS finally gives up the ghost. So far, I see no indication that will happen before 200,000 miles!

Failure Date: 08/18/2010
2000 Lincoln Ls problem: 2 induction coils need replacement. Rancho santa margarita Ford history: engine stopped on highway and on road home took to dealer and after inspection put auto in garage. Can not drive safely. One coil was replaced under warranty. Called Ford cust. Svs on this issue. They offered 12 month warranty on work. Thought "offer" was unusual; wouldn't dealer offer at least that? request: please review reported frequency of this problem for potential recall. . I submit this is a design flaw and safety issue and not a maintenance or wear & tear issue, unless owners' manual describes how I could have prevented or recommended time interval for inspection. . Research indicates this is the most common problem on model and caused by the gasket. This issue is on record with Ford in at least one bulletin (TSB 00t03 /9/2000 pcm-drivability complains).

Ford Lincoln Mercury~manufacture warranty extended on ignition coil - but each time ignition coil goes out it causes numerous "other repairs" costing $900+ each time. ~ vehicles begins to run rough, the temperature gauge goes to top, the car looses power (while in traffic even though foot on accelerator) will not accelerate~ 5 times in less than 11 months~ these "other repairs done each time ignition coil is replaced should be covered under extended manufacture warranty. (incidents June 2009/ October '09/ January 2010/ March 2010/ April 2010).
7 Engine problem of the 2002 Lincoln LS
Failure Date: 05/15/2009
My 2002 Lincoln Ls v8 has broken down in numerous ways. All ignition coils have had to be replaced, two window motors, airbag connector clip, my tie rod ends are bad, my car has actually shut off completely while driving up the 15 north three times while my son was in the car with me and now my transmission has completely stopped working. When it came to fixing the airbag connector problem Lincoln told me it was fixed and I went to pick up my car and it was still doing the same thing the three beeps so they fixed it for free and then told me my instrument panel on one side was burned out but the lights seems to work on it when I turn them on. They wanted to charge me 800 dollars for that but I refused. The ignition coil replacement was roughly 1000 dollars and I am waiting on my estimate for my transmission. Both window motors were 200 dollars a piece. I have had numerous taillights replaced and actually had a door lock jam closed on me. I truly feel that this car is a safety hazard for me and my son if it turns completely off at 65 miles an hour on a freeway with my son in the car.

Have a drink, beauty, he said. We clinked glasses and knocked over a glass. I was bent over with cancer, his penis was right in front of my face, I began to slowly caress him, at that moment I felt how they. Approached me from behind, lifted my skirt and the penis entered my pussy. They began to fuck me in the mouth and pussy.

By the way, about George. Are you really so serious with him. Tanya closed her eyes and moved to the beat of some music: - Mishka, I seem to have fallen in love. For a long time, however, he had to break it, everything in his head that evening in the steam room did not leave. He had big psychological problems on the basis of his work.
