2001 Lincoln Continental Owner Comments

problem #3

Feb 182008

Continental 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Coil spring on left front strut broke, rubbed through sidewall of tire causing blowout. Wife was real lucky this was in town at low speed. Could have been catastrophic on freeway. Parts are real expensive $450 each side plus one new tire, I'm going to get both sides done because I don't trust the other one now. I have the parts ordered. I will save failed part.
