My apologies for such a blunt first post here, but, I need some advice and/or opinions on a car. I'm considering picking this up this afternoon. http://holland.craigslist.org/cto/4945879674.html If the car checks out, I just wonderered if I could get some insight on common maintenance? I'm capable of doing most anything on my own. I've been a proud owner of a 2003 Lincoln LS8 and have done quite a number of extensive repairs and maintenance in it. This forum has been very helpful. So yeah, what are the common failures? Suspension wise? And how about the transmission? I believe the one in this cts I'm considering is the original with 340k miles on it. I've found several replacements for a few hundered so that's not too bad if it were to fail. How about the engine? What commonly fails or needs replacing there? With the Lincoln LS it's the cooling system plastics, coils and plugs, tranny solenoid, etc. I appreciate any advice and input and thanks for your time.
