How many miles do you have on your Lincoln LS?

Hey everyone. I was just curious how many miles people have on there Lincoln LS's. I am just about to hit 250K on mine and it feels like a milestone. Every place I take my car people say how beautiful it looks, and so many people ask me how long I have had it, assuming it's brand new. I bought it with a few thousand miles on it 3 years a 3 months ago. Anyhoo, just curious about peoples miles, thanks.


  • 2004 LS Ultimate 3.9 V8 :shades:

    Wait, you put almost 250k on it in just over 3 Years?

    Mine's an '05 with 54K. I only put about 6K a year on it 'cause I ride my motorcycle all summer.
  • I have 165000 on a 02 lse i bought it when it had 11000
  • I have a 2001 and just turned 83K on it. No major problems with the car yet, just regular scheduled maintanence.

    I have a '01 LS with 116,000. bought it with 20k. It's been expensive to maintain.. but rides & looks great!
  • I have an '05 LSE that just turned 50K. She is a great car despite the numerous trips to the dealer for the failed COPS and the hesitation.

    59K on my '05. replaced the DCCV (dual climate control valve), and of course, three COPS.
  • I also have a 2002 LSE with 105K miles on it. Had no issues until it passed 100K and now it's been non-stop (COPS, fuel pump, radiator and now Advancetrac) since December.
  • Several months ago I purchased a 2001 LS V8 with only 16,400 miles on it. It now has 20,200 on it and ready for first oil change.
  • I have an 02 lse pushing around 125k. This machine is a beast looks like i just drove it off the lot. The only problem i have had with it is the ignition coils. I found if you use the techtronic shitft it will burn them out 10X faster. other than that she drives like a dream.

    Bought an 06 last year with 28k it now has 40k. Good to know others have over 250k miles on the car. I love the car and plan on keeping it as long as possible

    I bought a used '05 LS V6 back in '05 with about 22K miles. Now coming up on 215K. All the ignition coils have been changed. plugs changed at 129K.

    I have had some issues which I didn't have with my last two cars (both Nissan Altimas), The transmission doesn't shift to D5, so I get the infamous 'E' when I get up to 55-60mph, but the car still runs smoothly.

    Most of my driving is on the highway, so not a lot of starting/stopping. Probably the main reason it's lasted so long. I plan to drive it until it disintegrates...

    Wow, that's a lotta miles! :)

    My 2001 manual transmission V6 has almost 135,000 miles and I am about to perform the first tuneup. Only item I've spent much money on (besides GAS) is tires. I'm on my 3rd set. Always Firestones.

    I have a 2000 Lincoln Ls that has 125K. No major problem besides ignition coils, but now when I start the start i get a cloud of white smoke from the exhaust. Only when I start the car. Do anyone know what this could be?
  • akirbyakirby Posts: 7,665
    Is it smoke or steam? It might just be condensation in the exhaust - if so it would dissipate very quickly. If it sticks around then it sounds like coolant which would most likely mean a blown head gasket. Check the oil for milky fluid and/or check the coolant for oil. You can also get a compression test done.

    I have a 2002 LS (V8) that just hit 209,000 miles! runs great still - alot of electrical problems though.
  • I'm at 175,000 miles at this point.

    I have a 2002 LS. I have had and am still having ignition coil problems. It actually sets the check engine light on - it's a "clyinder misfire" at least that's what it's called on my car. Yeah it's a V8 so there is 8 seperate coils! at $95.00 EACH. I have replaced 4 of the 8 with Ford parts. Now I have a cylinder #7 misfire. But my car has 209,000 miles almost 210. I have alot of issues.

    You can pick up a new coil pack from any advance auto/autozone type store for $53 or so. Don't overpay for the Ford part.

    Also - if you change them yourself - just make sure the plug well doesn't have any oil or moisture in it - that is what causes them to misfires.
