It fits our family, it is paid for and it gets us where we need to go. We don't need a new car

I like that it is paid for in cash so we do not have a car note. I like that it gets us where we need to go. We usually do not travel far. I like that it's an older call. I just have a love of that from my dad and it's a luxury car with seat warmers and electronic everything. I like that it fits a family of 5 which I closes 3 car seats. I like that when I back up or lets me know if I'm going to hit something. I'm a new driver so that great. The only thing I don't like is that it has wear and tear so we have to put some money in to fix it. Quite a bit of money

I've owned my car for close to ten years, I love it because it is a smooth ride, it is easy to adjust seats and change radio station, there are seven buttons to set your favorite stations on, it is a luxury car so there's a lot of room to be comfy in as well. Lots of trunk space, it has air shocks, the whole time I have owned my car I have had two issues, one was new battery and the other a flat tire so the make is wonderful. Plus it gets about a eighty miles per gallon.

I have had my Lincoln for 13 years of mainly trouble free comfort mileage. I use it mainly to get to point to point such as grocery store, visit to family members etc so have kept mileage low. So have had very little work on this car other than tire changes, oil changes etc. It is comfy with four doors and is still quite stylish as is a LINCOLN.l

Steering Aug 29, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 29, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V385000
Summary:
Ford is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Ford Crown Victoria (including Crown Victoria Police Interceptors), Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Town Car vehicles. The affected vehicles are currently registered or were originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Severe corrosion can seize the lower intermediate shaft which may cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and the steering column lower bearing to separate.
Consequence:
If the lower bearing separates, the vehicle may experience a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners and dealers will replace the lower intermediate shaft, free of charge. The upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing will be inspected to identify any damage that may have occurred as a result of lower intermediate shaft corrosion, and repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed. The recall is expected to begin October 21, 2013. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's recall number is 13S08. Customers located in non-corrosion states who have concerns regarding their steering will have a onetime option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired.
