"It's a Ford"on by tjmile1
Pros - From the Lincolns I have test driven, this is probably a comfortable vehicle.
- Good factory stereos and Sync
Cons - It's one of the ugliest looking cars I've seen.
- It will depreciate more than anything else out there.
- Expect quality issues with rattles and squeaks
- Ford engine design (designed so you can't do the maintenance, even if you want to)
Summary From what I've read, and the Lincoln's I have test driven, this is probably a comfortable vehicle. Lincoln interiors seem chintzy to me though. For what they charge, they don't match Japanese makers. There's no doubt they have decent tech, but my Mercury (the 2008 I bought new) had rattles and squeaks that couldn't be solved by the dealer within a week of driving it. Several mechanical and maintenance issues within the seven months I owned it (I dumped it three weeks ago) Don't bother lecturing me on the difference between Lincoln and Mercury, there's not much difference at all other than the level of trim and like I said, it ain't all that impressive.
Ford is a horrible company. They sold me a lemon and wouldn't do right by me. I won't bore anyone with the details, but let's just say a Japanese dealer gave me $1000 over KBB trade-in book, $4000 more than my Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealer was willing to do (I was going to give Ford a second chance on a different vehicle, but they refused to even give me trade-in book value). Ford dealers are old school crooks as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure they have many fans, but I've owned many cars (American, Japanese, Korean, Italian, German, Swedish), and Ford (Mercury) is the worst I've owned.
Why would you waste your hard earned money on a Lincoln. I can name several better cars in this vehicle's category, but I won't bother. I"m not trying to sell another brand in particular, but compare closely Mileage, power, interior, resale value. If you do you won't buy a Ford product.
Pros its pretty
Cons its probably pretty horrible too. fords are the worst cars ever! they might as well change their name and start from sctratch because theyve burned too many people that shelled out good money for their cars. i'd rather buy a kia!
Thanks for your submission!
