7/8/2011 - FARGO, ND
(02) LINCOLN LS ISSUES. (110,000 MILES CURRENTLY) FORD/LINCOLN SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS PRODUCT. THE AMOUNT OF PROBLEMS FROM MANY CUSTOMERS AROUND THE COUNTRY IS SIMPLY AMAZING. FOR FORD TO NOT SEND OUT RECALLS ON THE LS IS SIMPLY A LACK OF PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS. THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS ARE NOT ISOLATED TO MYSELF BUT RATHER BY THOUSANDS AROUND THE COUNTRY. - CLOCK SPRING REPLACED 2 TIMES. $600 EACH - TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS, UNFIXED AT THIS POINT. WILL COST $3,000 + - WINDOW MODS REPLACED 4 TIMES. $400 EACH TIME - ENGINE COILS BAD. $600 FIX, AND STILL DOESN'T RUN RIGHT. - THERMOSTAT ISSUES. REPLACED ONCE FOR $300 AND DOING IT AGAIN. - BOTH FRONT INSIDE DOOR HANDLES REPLACED. $400 EACH TIME. THESE WERE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO FAIL AFTER TIME AFTER SEEING THEM! - LOUD "CLUNKING" COMING FROM FRONT PASSENGER WHEEL. LOOKED AT WITH NO ANSWER WHY. - CAR HAS SHUT DOWN ELECTRICALLY DRIVING DOWN INTERSTATE MULTIPLE TIMES ONLY TO START UP AFTER SITTING A WHILE. VERY DANGEROUS DUE TO LOSING POWER STEERING. NO ANSWER TO WHY.
