problem #2

  • 25,000 miles
My car has numerous parts that tear up repeatedly, within a 6 months time. Valve cover gasket had replaced twice within a 6 months time. The coil packs go up very often. I had panel buttons just tear up for no reason three times! wheel caps replaced numerous times. Overheating issues, door locking issues, battery replaced twice within 2 years time. Ac issues, (I never used my ac..at all). This car has a lot of problems on the T.S.bulletin. I contacted Ford in reference to the multiple issues I was having with the car, the company representatives told me to take the complaint to the establishment of which I had been dealing with. Then they said Lincoln is an independent owned establishment so I am totally confused by this whole ordeal, they know that they have had a lot of multiple problems out of that car. And they refuse to recall some of those (as I would say) hazardous issues. I was at the dealer 2 weeks ago, I was conversing with a rep. At the dealership and he was telling me how the Lincoln Ls was their most problem vehicle, and cash maker for repairs. (oh by the way.......I researched to find this site. To answer the question in the consumer section).

My 02 Lincoln Ls has had 2 new rear ends and now power steering pump and actuator is gone bad. I have a list of about 12 things that has happened to my car in last 12 months, and my car only has 27,000 miles on it. Not very happy at all.
