I wanted a 5 speed manual luxury car for under 11k & the LS was the only choice not under year 2000 .I had this car for 2 years .The good... car handles amazing great suspension shifts are strong brakes are tight stops on a dime gas mileage not great and requires premium but I drove this car hard so I don't think that helped .Seats are very comfortable for long drives especially. The bad...this is what i had to fix.... armrest cover,cup holder cover, shift boot, coolant overflow bottle, heated seat,various bulbs & airbag sensor. Fit & finish is cheap for this luxo cruiser. My 01 mpv & 02 protege 5 dash looks better, lincoln's is very ford taurus. Common for 00 lincoln is oil leaking into the plug jackets which shorts out your coil on plug and it will give you plenty of engine headaches, parts are expensive & odd size 17" tires.
