Less than 4 months and 3000 miles later 3 engine coils steering pump, ac switch and park brake $1000 in repairs and that's with the dealership covering half of everything. Still owe 8 grand worst car ive ever purchased. Put the car in park and RUN AWAY. you can thank me later.

I have had little maintenance. Bought used from a dealer as a program car with 9K. Maintenance in 7.5 years includes: set of tires, new battery, front brake pads & turn rotors, new fan belt, oil / filter chg. every 3K, and keep it spotless. Great fun to drive and comfortable on long trips.

Never again. Ford quality is poor

I put 150K on a 2001 LS without incident and then traded it for the 2006 with 5K.I have been very happy with this car in every single way and now have over 160K miles on it. The only issue I've had was replacing the thermostat. It's a bit of a challenge and the guy changing it (me) didn't get the housing tight the first time. No issues after that. Runs great, drives great, gets decent mpg and still looks good. I'd buy a new one tomorrow if they still made them.

Great car except for transmission shift points

Bought a 2006 LS in Dec of 2011, It had 62K on it and I've put about 5K on it to date (9/2013). I like the car. I wanted to buy and American RWD sedan and there weren't many choices. We already own a V8 Charger and I wanted something different. It was a Pontiac G8 or this. G8 would not accommodate my 15 y.o. in the back seat. More cramped. I did have to replace the heater control valve near the radiator. It was blowing hot air from the A/C. A disappointment on a car with only 67K on it. I've had no other issues with the car. It runs well and has lots of power and handles very well. It has a nice firm ride. Fun around off ramps. Very nice THX stereo too. If it wasn't for the trans, I'd be 5's

Worst car I HAVE EVER OWNED - If I got into all the details and probs I'd be here ALL DAY. Put it this way, check engine light was on so many times in the 6 years I owned I can't even recall how many times. Check charging alert - replaced the $200 alternator and $130 battery and STILL ON. This car is an ELECTRONIC NIGHTMARE - I wish I had got rid of this MONEY PIT before I found out my rear A-frame was rotted out beyond fixing, won't pass inspection and isn't safe. Oh and lets not forget it's 17" tires get CHEWED through like nothing I have ever seen before- can't even find a decent tire with decent tread rating all below 500. OMG I get hives just thinking about that hunk of crap 02 LS V8

Picked up a pre-owned 2006 with 32k on it. Love the ride, acceleration, and the interior. I'm tired of all the gadgetry in all the other cars. I just want to drive, not be freaking entertained. Love the SelectShift and blowing the doors off of Beemers.

I just purchased a 2006 Lincoln ls v8 sport. 78k miles for $13,000. First off I cannot believe that a car that went for $45,000 just 3 years ago was this cheap! I just got out of an 06 GTO with 400 hp so I was a little skeptical of the 280 hp v8. Premium interior, sound system, power moonroof, advancetrac, heated/cooled seats, are all excellent features. Especially the surround sound . Roomy, comfortable ride! Throttle lags a bit especially in low gears, (compared to gto) very stiff sporty suspension handles nice and most other performance is as advertised.

The 2006 LS is a great car that should not have been discontinued! The current MKZ lacks a V8 engine, and therefore, is not as fun to drive. My mother had an '02 LS and an 04' LS. The '06 is fun to drive and has great pick-up and power. The interior is comfortable and well-designed in my opinion. Like the Continental, which was also a great car, Lincoln no longer makes the car. However, if you're looking to buy a used car, then check out the LS!

This is my first luxury sedan. I've owned many sports cars and had trucks as my daily drivers. The latest sedan that I have owned is a 2006 Grand Prix, so my comparison will be based on that car. The LS is a very fun car and as it is used, it only has 4500 miles on it. The power level from the small V8 pushing 4K pounds is very substantial and smooth. The ride quality is very good and allows quick response during any situation and speed. As far as the interior goes I will have to agree that there should have been more effort from the designers in allowing more/better adjustments for the drivers seat, it just seems a little flat compared to the other vehicles I have had, inc the trucks.

This is the car I have been looking for. In a world of front wheel drive sedans the rear wheel LS is a breath of fresh air. I had the fortunate experience of driving my new LS back to back wih my brother in laws BMW 535 IX. The BMW was a little faster, a little quieter and a little more agile - but not by much. Certainly not enough to justify the huge price difference. The LS handles well and looks good. I had the pleasure of driving a 2003 V6 model on a solo road trip from Florida to Michigan a few years ago and never tired of getting back in after a long days drive. A great driver's car. My 2006 V8 is even better and I like it more each time I drive it.

The Lincoln LS is the absolute most fun vehicle I have owned. I love taking this car on long distance trips more than I do our Lexus GS430. The seats are the absolute most comfortable I have had the pleasure of sitting in. The styling is great, the interior is even better. This is the second LS I have owned. THe only downfall I see is repair costs when something needs to be replaced. Every part on this car seems to be more expensive than the average car...including oil changes. Nonetheless, I would buy a third LS!

I have had my LS since April of 06. Bought it brand spanking new. I traded my Mercury Mountaineer for it because I wanted a car something sporty for a 40+ yr old female, good looking. It growled at me at the dealership showroom. The performance is excellent. It will git up an go. The color, Silver/Platinum nice. Now, the only problem I have is the rumbling noise in the dash. Supposedly it is coming from air in the heater line?

I have always liked the design of the Lincoln LS. Its smooth lines and luxurious interior give a lot of imports a reason for concern. The lines look very similar to that of the Mercedes Benz E-Class of recent years. Though at this point you will only find it used, buying one will be all but disappointing. I found a 2006 with 7900 miles on it and it's incredible. The V8 power kicks when you need it, the interior has every amenity you can possibly need and the overall appearance of the LS is solid. Rumor has it that Lincoln will introduce an MKS in mid 2008 (They have the MKZ and the MKX now). Is it reintroduction if the LS? We'll have to wait and see.

I never thought that this car had everything I was looking for, but it does and I still look forwrd to driving it. In the last 10 years I have had 6 BMW's (an M3 and the rest 5- series) and 2 Saab's. To be honest, the beemers were overhyped, the Saab's were awesome, but were always in thw shop. This LS is great. The looks are understated and the motor has a strong powerband.

This is my second LS. I bought a 2000 new and the 2006 new. I call this review, "close" because just like Ford they almost get it and then drop the ball. Example, the front of the vehicle is spectacular, so is the side of the vehicle. The backend....boring. The back lights look like the were formed by the Keebler elves with a cookie cutter. Engine, wonderful. Transmission, has a mind of it's own. Fit and finish ,more rattles than a maternity ward...Great comfort. The cas is a overall fun car that was overpriced by 10k.

... and you wouldn't be in such terrible financial shape! This vehicle replaces a 1992 STS, and has every option. At $47k, I'd rather have a Lexus, but at $35k, there was nothing on the market comparable. Average fuel consumption is 22 mpg in suburban driving. An outstanding package in an understated, yet elegant product.

The 2006 Lincoln LS is the ultimate luxury automobile.It hugs the road as it cruises along its path. Comfort is realized in every mile that I drive, being underscored by the wood trim, satin nickel accents, outstanding entertainment center, voice recognition navigation system, and smooth ride. I truly enjoy every minute that I am in my car; the price and options are value driven. The auto industry has lost a competent vehicle upon the demise of the Lincoln LS.

This car replaces my 2001 LS V8. I love it. Can't believe I waited to trade up my other LS, as it had almost 108K on it. It is a true shame that Lincoln decided to discontinue this car. For the price, this car blows away 3&5 Series BMW, Lexus, Acura and all the others. Everyone who rides in this car can't believe it is a Lincoln and finds the complete luxury experience that you would expect from higher end vehicles. I bought the Elite Package with power everything, heated front & REAR seats, THX audio with Navigation, HID lights etc. The engine is smooth and quiet, not to mention 280 hp is more than enough to get in trouble. The car by far out handles most cars of this weight and class.

The car is sweet on the highway, at 70 mph i can get 28 mpg, at 60 i get 29 mpg, at 45 i get 32 mpg. In the city i get 19-22 depending on stop lights and traffic. I wish the display showed instantaneous MPG readings, instead it just shows average. the radio plays CD's but not MP3's. Stereo Rocks, nice sound. The trunk does not always "pop" open when i hit the button, i have to lift it (really no big deal) Brakes squeak, i don't know if it would get better if i stuck different pads on it, i have not tried, but i asked about it. I should have gotten the GPS built in, but cash was an issue.

I feel this car competes with BMW and the Japanese sport sedans in performance and styling. My second car is a late model Corvette,this car has great acceleration and handling characteristics,is almost as much fun to drive as my Vette. The Lincoln LS has been discontinued and my decision to buy was the great value, 11,000 in discounts made this the best value for a great handling and preforming sports sedan.

I finally got the car I've wanted for 4 yrs! Traded in my Avalon, for a sporty and more comfortable car. I've tried BMWs (3,5,7) and the 3&5 were painful to sit in, the 7 was maybe equal but a few k more... The Lexus, Toyotas, Nissan, Acura, Honda, Infiniti never had the right mix and most had too much lumbar support that couldn't be backed off enough (my Avalon had front bench seat). I don't expect to get the high miles I've gotten with my Toyota, but I sure am going to have a lot more fun and comfort when trying to get there! I know I irritated lots of salemen with 30+ test drives, but I put on the miles and I don't want to sacrifice if I don't have too and I don't!

Headlights kept filling with water when it rained, the rear windows failed open on a ski trip, the light in the stereo last about a week. They replaced the headlights three times with headlights that filled with water, told me I didn't know how to operate the stereo four times until they finally replaced the whole unit. Repair the windows twice. Then the plastic imitation chrome started flaking off the interior panels and the sun roofed leaked. The car started to idle like a D-10 CAT in a coal mine. Called in quits after a year and a whopping 8,000 miles, lemon lawed it and gave it a new home in the dealers junk yard. That was the same year Ford was "At Ford, quality is job one".

I recently purchased a 2006 LS Ultimate. This is my second LS. I had previously owned a 2002 LS V8 Sport. We were so impressed with it that when looking to refresh our car this year, we considered only the LS. We decided to purchase new because the Ford Family pricing (in Canada) and other incentives brought the price in line with what we wanted to spend. I love this car. However, I don't love everything about it. The rear seat leg room is poor. The fuel economy is merely acceptable, but the Premium (91+) requirement means spending even more on gas. The interior is beautiful, with real wood trim and premium leather. Power adjustable everything with memory is great with two drivers.

My last two cars were Jags (XJ and S- Type). I thought the LS was a poor copy of the S-type, but huge rebates lured me to take a test drive . I was shocked. The 2006 LS corners and handles better than my S-Type with less wind and engine noise. The 3.9 V8 has a sportier feel than my Jag's 4.0. The interior is less "euro," but still clean and luxurious, with a few nice touches my Jags didn't have. When I learned I'd get an extended 6-year drivetrain warranty AND $14,000 reduction off the $43K sticker ($29,000 !!!), it was -- "duh"-- impossible to pass on such an excellent value! If you can live without a European nameplate, buy this car while they last and bank your money.

$27,000 out the door with heated seats, sun roof and adj. pedals. Yes it looks like a Galant and a BMW at times. It is a steal and sure its not the greatest car on the road. However the Mercedes snobs best do a search on the Merc E350 and it is true that the Mercedes is the bomb when its not in the garage or on the side of the road. And who needs the $100 oil changes and the expense. The Lincoln takes care of you for the first 12mo/12K miles on maintenance. Yes I would like to have had more features on the inside- slightly wider seats in the front, better basic radio with less controls and a better dash layout. Sure I'd like to have another 50 hp too. But Lincoln treats me like a star.

I have had three LSs which should tell it all. I love the handling and elegant styling. Although all three were similar looking there have been many changes & improvements, most notably interior storage. My only complaint is the weak transmission. The first two LSs have had to gears replaced. But the dealership took care of it promptly and the cars were fixed to my satisfaction.

Lincoln has always been one of the stronger US brands. The LS is an amazing car. I test drove the GS300 and the Infiniti M35. When equally equipped, each car has a similar sticker price. BUT, the most I could get off of a Lexus or an Infiniti was 3- 5%. I was able to get almost 40% off a new LS. The car is not worth it's sticker, but what car is? When you factor in the discount, this is the best car for the money. The resale hit is non-exsistent when you make the right deal. Highly recommended.

I love this car to tell you the truth, but I'm going to be forced to buy a German vehicle next (maybe Audi or MB). It's overpriced, there are more features on a M-Benz C230 Sport Sedan than on this vehicle. Not so impressed with leather. Pretty nice handling. I've also noticed that D Waters is right! My LS Doesn't only blow dust in from the back rows, but from the front rows as well. It might attract more business if it's called a V6, cause no one really wants a very weak V8, they want a Powerful V6. Luxury options are too pricy, and I might say the exterior is, well, ugly. However, the Interior is pretty nice. On an overall, I would recommend a BMW 330i or a MB C280 or Audi A4.

Traded in my 02 LS for the 06 LS. What a shame that Lincoln has decided to table this car - it is simply fantastic. Compared this car to the BMW 5 series. The Lincoln has as many, if not more luxury features at a fraction of the price. Handles smoothly and has great looks. It is a real head turner. Lincoln finally corrected the lack of interior space and added 17 inch wheels. The gas mileage is not great, but it is not terrible either. It is comparable to other cars in this class. The LS is a blast to drive and it will not break the budget. My out the door price before the trade was $33,268.

I purchased my Lincoln LS just a few weeks ago and so far I'm very impressed. The interior is not flashy, Ford calls it understated, and I appreciate the visual smoothness. Power and driving experience are exceptional and make the car fun to drive. The interior is comfortable for a 6'1 driver, with plenty of seat and steering wheel adjustments. I'm getting tons of honest compliments on the car and as many requests to take it for a drive. It's too new for me to comment on gas mileage but if I can get 20 MPG average with this smooth and fast V8, I'm more than happy. The Audiophile sound system is awesome as are the chrome 17 inch wheels. The leather is stiff but I hope it softens with time.

WOW

What a shame Lincoln has decided to table this car. It is terrific. I am big fan of this car - I just traded my '02 LS for this one!! I liked the way my '02 handled - this handles better! In addition, this car is a headturner. You cannot go anywhere without somebody doing a double take as you go by!!! Obviously, I did not buy this car for gas mileage, but it is pretty competitive with other cars in its class. I did compare this a BMW 325xi and the Lincoln has more luxury features at a much better price. My out the door price was $35,427. I wish Lincoln would have continued to make this underrated gem. It is great to own an AMERICAN luxury car.

Lincoln LS: Disappointment

When we first got the car, I was somewhat (not very) excited, but now I'm just disappointed. There are several pros and cons. PRO: The seats are pretty comfortable in the front. CON: In the rear seats, I noticed that this strange mix of dust and dirt blows in when you open the vents. PRO: At times, when you're slowly inching along (around 30 mph), you can get 40 mpg( the average is 16 mpg). CON: the radio is awful. PRO: So far, this car seems to be quite reliable. CON: The rear seats are very uncomfortable. CON: It was way overpriced for what it's worth. (another)CON: This car just can't seem to stay in competition with foreign automakers. We're soon going to switch to a Mercedes S65 AMG.

As Good AS My 3 and 7 Series

After two months this is the Ultimate Driving Machine. On par with my 1997 BMW 328ic and 1999 BMW 740i. Great balance in performance and luxury. Gas mileage was better than expected at average of 24 MPG. THX/NAV system sounds excellent and NAV system is user friendly. Interior very classic and comfortable.

As good as my 5 series

I have only owned this car for 2 weeks, so I can't judge reliability yet. However, after owning 2 BMW 5 series sedans, I can say that this car is their equal in terms of comfort and performance. This may relate to my driving style, which is not real aggressive, so I appreciate that the suspension on the LS is tuned a little softer. Car is a joy to drive, front seats are very comfortable, and reports from the back seat are that there is plenty of room. The wood grain interior accents get lots of compliments. Stereo sound is excellent (audiophile option). Gas mileage is not great, but I knew that going in (still, in mixed driving, I am averaging 18 mpg). I would recommend this car.

I had a 2000 and 2001 LS. With Lincoln's unwise demise of the LS, I decided we needed the last of the breed. As my (2000) LS has over 100K miles and the 2001 had only 60K, we traded in the 2001. We got Dark Cherry with black interior. This car is light years ahead of my 2000. Granted, mine has the V6 and the '06 is the V8, but acceleration is quick and plentiful! Fit and finish is second to none. The car is very tight. It handles better than my '00. The interior is as a Lincoln should be. With the tilt/tele steering wheel and adjustable pedals, it is easy to get the correct position. The NAV is easy to use, and the directions are easily followed. The THX system is outstanding!

This is my third LS and I absolutely love it. All have been the V8, so can't really comment on the V6. It's sporty enough and responsive enough to be a great car, and for the type, I don't think it was that expensive.

Sexy car! It just doesn't like to go slow (or maybe that's just me when I'm driving it!) Gas mileage stinks, but we didn't buy it with economy in mind. It's not real roomy inside and the trunk space is lacking, so no long road trips for more than 2 people if you like comfort! It looks great, it's fun to drive and it's good to know I'm driving an AMERICAN Luxury car. I feel proud pulling up to any of the competition.
