Common Defects

If you’ve had to bring your Lincoln in for repair two times or more for any of the following concerns, you may have a lemon. Call 1 (833) 4MY – LEMON to speak with a Lincoln lemon law attorney and get our team of experienced trial attorneys fighting on your behalf today.

Transmission Failure

The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car.

Common symptoms of transmission failures include:

  • Whining and clunking
  • Burning smell
  • Lack of response, hesitation
  • Lunging, or jerking
  • Noisy in neutral
  • Leaking fluid
  • Premature clutch replacements

Ignition or Spark Plug Failures

Sparks plugs ignite the air-fuel mixture within an engine’s cylinders, creating the explosion required to power to the engine. While failures can be caused by improper heat ranges or chemical contamination, the most common cause of damage to spark plugs results from improper torque installation.

Common symptoms of a spark plug failures include:

  • Slow acceleration
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Misfires
  • Difficulty starting the vehicle

Emissions System Malfunctions

The exhaust system is made up of many parts: manifolds, oxygen sensors, catalytic converters, resonators, exhaust pipes, mufflers, and tailpipes. The exhaust system controls noise, directs fumes away from passengers, improves performance and fuel consumption, and is one of the most heavily regulated systems in vehicles today. California and Federal emissions warranties even require extended coverage of many emissions system components, even if a car’s basic warranties have expired.

Common symptoms of exhaust system failures include:

  • Loud hissing sounds from the exhaust
  • The smell of raw gasoline
  • Decrease in power
  • Lack of acceleration
  • Loss of fuel efficiency
  • Detached, hanging, or dragging exhaust pipe

Swollen Lug Nuts

Lug nuts are fasteners used to secure a wheel to a vehicle. This problem is simply the result of cheap lug nuts being used on wheels.

Common symptoms of lug nut defects include:

  • Difficulty removing lug nuts
  • Repeated replacement of lug nuts
  • Inability to remove the wheel from the car

Steering System Defects

Steering system defects cause serious safety problems since a vehicle’s steering system is responsible for a driver’s ability to direct the vehicle and avoid a collision.

General steering defects can cause symptoms such as:

  • Difficulty turning the wheel
  • Loose steering
  • Unresponsive steering
  • Grinding, rattling, screeching, or other noise while turning the wheel
  • Steering wheel slipping
  • Excessive vibration

Since at least 2005, Ford Motor Company trucks, including those sold under the Lincoln brand, trucks have been prone to a specifically dangerous steering system defect, known as the “Death Wobble.” The death wobble defect can result from abnormal wearing and/or loosening of the track bar bushing, steering damper, ball joints, control arms, shock absorbers, and/or struts. Most concerning, this defect usually occurs at speeds above 50 miles per hour, subjecting the driver, passengers, and others on the road to extreme danger.

Common Symptoms of the death wobble defect include:

  • Sudden loss of steering control
  • Violent front end shaking, vibration, swaying
  • Inability to regain steering control

About Lincoln

At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Lincoln.

Lincoln is a division of Ford Motor Company, headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan. Officially operating in the United States as the Ford Motor Company, the company is headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan.

The Ford Motor Company Image

Incorporated in 1903, Ford has more than 100 years of car manufacturing experience. Best known for revolutionizing the car manufacturing process with the assembly line, Ford prides itself on making “the first vehicle built for everyone.”

While Ford focuses on creating cars with economical price tags for the average American consumer, a host of problems and defects often drive up the cost of owning a Lincoln to be much higher than the sticker price.

History of Recalls

The company could win a trophy for the vast amount of recalls issued for Ford’s defective and dangerous vehicles driven on American roads. Of the ten biggest auto recalls in history, Ford takes first and second place, with the most and second most number of cars recalled in a single recall; many of them Lincolns. Ford also consistently holds a top spot as an automaker with one of the highest number of recalls issued. Ford and Lincoln vehicles continue to suffer from serious defects.

I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?

Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Lincoln often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Lincoln’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
