    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Premium (210A)

    Power and speed to spare. The design is conservative if not "classic." It has vertical rear window separating the cabin from the rear deck, making LS look good from every angle. The car hasn't shown a spot of rust in 18 Wisconsin winters (no garage). One major complaint: after 16 years the cooling system leaked freon. Either must fix it before summer (cost: 2K) or trade it in. (A steal for 5K.) Replacement: Continental? MKZ? (Both anticlimactic after an LS.)

    2002 Lincoln LS - V6 Auto Base (100A)

    I bought this car because it was cheaper than fixing my land rover. I wanted one of these when they were new and I was 16. I'm very impressed by it. It's very fun to drive, and the way it accelerates is impressive. You don't feel it, it just happens. I wish I had the v8. Mine has 221,000 miles runs and purrs like a kitten. Quiet inside. Stereo blows, I'm gonna get new speakers and a cd player.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Premium (210A)

    Pros: V8 and your not a tool driving everyother same car.

    Cons: some exterior blems

    Advice: Buy used and an 8.

    Outperforms many! Just drive it and push it past what you think it can handle, and it will handle it. Power and stopping is great. No problems in 40k. Reliable, fun, and spacious. All for a good price even new, but i recommend buying used the value of these drops like a stone, let the first guy take the hit.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Premium (210A)

    Pros: SST Tranny

    Cons: None that I can find.

    Advice: Test drive it. Drive it exactly like you would in your everyday routine. Don't 'baby' it because the salesman is in the other seat.

    I've owned my 2002 LS for about 2 months. I bought it with used, with 44,000 miles on it. But thus far, I've been VERY impressed with the performance. Acceleration & stopping power is very good. Comfort is very good. I have not found a flaw yet. Others have posted 'wants' pertaining to more interior storage. My opinion is the more interior storage you have, the more stuff you will find when you do your scheduled cleaning. It's a car, not a suitcase on wheels.

    2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Base (200A)

    Pros: Color of the car: Gold Parchment

    Cons: Lack of Comfort, durability, gas consumption, expensive to drive. Yada yada yada

    Advice: Save your money... look elsewhere

    In March of 2005, I will turn 46 years old. The Lincoln LS is the worst vehicle that I have ever owned since I started driving at age 16. For this to be a luxury car, the designers missed the boat. I am 5'11 and 190 pounds. If I drive the LS more than 25 miles, my legs go to sleep. I have to sit sideways in order to accelerate. Obviously, I did not foresee this long distance driving problem when I test drove it. It is also a gas guzzler. If you fill the tank with gas with less octane than 91, expect the engine light to come on. The appearance of the vehicle made it attractive. However, service calls back to an unresponsive dealership, made me vow to never lease/buy another vehicle from this location. Bottomline, it was not worth the money spent. In fact, Lincoln Mercury should provide me with a 10-thousand dollar rebate on my next Ford purchase, due to the pain and suffering endured with my 3-year nightmare with the LS. Right now, if I had my choice between the LS and a stagecoach, I'd jump in behind the horse any day! Shame on Lincoln Mercury. When it comes to this car, your engineers were sleep at the wheel.
