2004 Lincoln LS - V8 Ultimate (222A)
Pros: All the tow truck drivers have commented about the pretty color.
Cons: Dies on a regular basis.
Advice: Buy something else.I purchased this as a 'Premier Certified Pre-Owned' vehicle. Less than two months after I purchased it, it dropped dead in the middle of the road. Has been back four times, they still have not been able to fix the problem. Both Ford and the selling dealer Lincoln of Dayton have said sorry about your luck. After 10 years of driving problem-free Lexus, Toyota and Nissan vehicles, I got the 'buy american' bug. Last time I'll make that mistake.
2004 Lincoln LS - V8 Sport (220A)
Pros: heated/cooled seats - the cooled part is fabulous on a hot summer day
Cons: how the drivers seat, upon exit, rolled back over the backseat passenger's feet
Advice: keep a close eye on everything, even though it's newI loved the LS from the moment I drove it out of the dealership's parking lot. Great handling, sport package is a must! Handles curves well, better than expected. Drives so great, you just want to keep going. The only downfall, the engine blew up with less than 1,000 miles on it, so it was bought back. I still find that no other car comes in a close second. The LS is way ahead of the others! I would purchase another one today! The pros outweight the cons by far!
