    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto LSE (221A)

    Pros: Engine and handling

    Cons: Small trunk and a few minor paint defects (fixed under warranty)

    Advice: Carefully inspect the vehicle prior to delivery

    The car rides and handles very well. I like the 'cockpit feel' that it provides. High RPM performance is very impressive (e.g., passing on the freeway), but low-end performance (e.g., stop-and-go driving) is just average. Still, it is a lot of fun to drive. My car is the LSE which has very little exterior chrome, enhanced ground effects, larger wheels and stiffer suspension. It does handle better than the standard LS with only a very minor difference in ride quality.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto LSE (221A)

    Pros: Road handling

    Cons: Sub-par fit and finish

    Advice: Listen for whines and insist on repairs. That isn't the 'way they're supposed to sound.'

    This is our 2nd LS. The first was good, but had the problems of a 1st model year. This one has a better finish. Xlnt ride and power. Good value for money. Lighter paint colors are better. The black exterior paint is very poor. Transmission is a bit hesitant when shifting. And both cars had some degree of rear-end whine (though the new one got a Ford recommended rear-end replacement at 5K miles and now has very little whine). Very quiet and smooth ride with good stability on all sorts of roads. Test drive a few and you will notice that some have more wind noise than others. The exterior fit is not always tight. Interior plastic parts and trim should be upgraded by Lincoln.

    2003 Lincoln Navigator - Ultimate (220B) 4x4

    Pros: Air Suspension and 4X4 systems

    Cons: I don't like all the plastic trim. Just adds weight

    Advice: BUY it

    We love the new Navigator with the independant rear end. Went 4X4 last weekend and did figure 8s around two trucks stuck in the sand, and I did not have off the road tires. The 4 wheel low is really powerful with the all wheel drive (positraction). The navigaiton systems works exactly as promised. The room is great. We have 6 kids at home and use all the seats. The back seats can fit my 6' 4' son with 4 to 5 inches of head clearance and his knees do not hit the seat in front.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Base (200A)

    Pros: convenience of steering wheel radio controls

    Cons: Needs more console/cup holder space

    Advice: Be prepared to buy a good set of winter tires!

    Liked it the moment I got in! Loved it the moment I drove it off the lot! The only thing that could make this car better would be convertible top!!!

    2002 Lincoln Town Car - Cartier (300A)

    Pros: THE RIDE

    Cons: MILEAGE

    Advice: DRIVE ONE AND GO WITH YOUR FIRST INSTINCT

    MY WIFE AND I BOUGHT OUR FIRST TOWN CAR ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO. IT WAS THE CARTIER EDITION AND IT WAS LOADED TO THE GILLS INCLUDING THE MOON ROOF. THIS CAR WAS FLAWLESS. IT WAS A 94' WITH 50,000 MILES ON IT, AND DROVE LIKE IT JUST CAME OUT OF THE SHOWROOM. I TESTED THE CADDY'S AND BUICKS, BUT THEY WERE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS THE TOWN CAR. COMFORT, STYLE, DEADLY GOOD LOOKS AND ONE OF THE BEST ENGINES EVER MADE MAKE THE LINCOLN TOWN CAR THE BEST LUXURY CAR AND THE SAFEST AND MOST PLUSH ON THE ROAD. PERIOD. ANYONE THAT SAYS DIFFERENT HAS NEVER DROVE OR OWNED ONE. GOD BLESS.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Base (200A)

    Pros: Auto adjust seats & steering wheel. Great controls on the steering column

    Cons: Lack of interior storage space (doors, glove box and console)

    Advice: Check it out on the entrance and exit ramps.

    The LS V8 is solid and fits like a glove. The steering and handling are effortless. Braking is steady and does not experience any 'fade', even after repetitive braking. Acceleration is smooth. The front seat controls customize the feel. Honestly, I have fun driving this vehicle. It makes curves, ramps and turns exciting. I first saw it over two years ago. It caught my eye back then and I just had to seriously check it out when I was ready to buy. I'm glad I did!!
