Pros

Fast, sharp, fun, confortable, good gas mileage, excellent.

Cons

Stop being made in 2006.  Parts may become hard to come by.
Must use premium gas instead of regular. I am finding that the 89 grade seems to be doing fine.

The Silver Bullet. (old Man's Play Car! ) — This car has a super radio/cd system. It has exceptional gas mileage potential for its engine size. It was more economical than I thought it would have. My wife likes it too.Now that is a plus. It has two memory seats, pedals, etc. I use to hate driving very much because of Gas expenses. I am more willing to drive now for no good reason. I go out of the way to drive my car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Quick and very nimble.  It was a co design and build by Lincoln and Jaguar so there are some great things about it.  It would compete against similar models of BMW and Mercedes and usually win out hands down.  Handling is remarkable.  Factory stereo is blistering.  I just put aftermarket Head Unit used factory speakers and Amp then a Sub and separate sub amp.  It was rolling concert hall with great acoustics.

Cons

Well the repair cost is high unless you are mechanically inclined can do things yourself.  Tranny is weak link but if maintained well is as good or better than any competitors.

Pretty Nice Ride — Better than average car. Nothing built in category and around same year (these were best in 2004-2006) by many competitors can match it. Acceleration, braking and handling couldn't be beat. These are a dream to drive. so comfortable and every option available. Not your typical Land Yacht Lincoln Image. Ive had 2 LS's and 2 Mark VIIIs over the past 15 years. In my opinion one of the finest Domestic Automobile. Ill probably end up with an MKZ some day again.

Sporty — The only thing I do not like about my car is it does not have much leg room in the back. But overall, this car is fun to drive and get good gas mileage. I can't complain too much about it.

The Acceleration, Braking And Handling Is Good — At the present I am very unhappy with the dealership where I purchased my car. I noticed a slight irregular shift with the transmission a few days after I purchased it. I took it back to the dealer and was told it was the traction control, yet over time it got worse now I'm told by the same dealership that it is indeed my transmission.

Pros

Drives good, quiet cabin and a overall decent car.

Cons

Rear wheel drive during the winter is the worst.

Nice Family Car — The rear wheel drive is the only bad thing about this car. This isn't a winter car so just be mindful of that. And since this is a v8 it can be a pain to fill up with grade 93 gas.

All Around Nice Car. I Will Def Buy Another Some Day!! — I love the handling of this car. Driving on the highway is the best!! For it being a v8 the gas isnt as bad as I thought it would be. Its loaded with extras and the sound system will amaze you. I have a 16 year old son and at first he says thats an old person car lol but now he loves it.

Recommended! — I loved my Lincoln! I had navigation, sunroof, everything, but the best feature was the air-conditioned seats!! Don't think you need that? Wait til you try it. Once you have them, you will always wonder how you ever did without. This car has a lot of zip in its 280 hp V8. Smallish interior but still fun to drive.
