Thanks, and thanks. Picked her up for 3850, wife, step son and daughter on the way, had to sell the 79 Bronco and get a more practical car. I LOVE this car.

Ditto here - welcome! Very sharp ride. I can't remember - did the LHS even have a 2.7 as an option? Or are they all 3.2/3.5's?

Welcome and congrats on the new LHS. I used to have a '99 LHS - nice car.

Something to mention is that you should not neglect the 100,000 mile maintenance requirements. Unless you know it's already been done, you are going to need the timing belt, water pump, etc. maintenance soon. A search will take you to a number of threads on the topic. Bottom line is that if the timing belt breaks, the engine could destroy itself because it is an interference engine. If you have more questions, someone else could explain it better than I. Certainly not trying to bring you down, just want you to be able to drive it for another 100k.

Enjoy the new LHS!

Some of the other guys might be able to offer some better thoughts. I've seen a variety of prices mentioned on this site. I had mine done last year (at about 85,000 miles) because my water pump failed. Since it is a '99, and the water pump went, it was time to do it all even though it was well under 100,000 miles.

You will want to make sure you get the "whole" job done at the same time for cost efficiencies. That means you should look at replacing the following: timing belt and tensioners with pulley; water pump; drive belts (serpentine/AC); and radiator hoses. Assuming you are going to have the work done by someone, it should be somewhere between $600 and $1,200 (at a dealer?), When I had mine done, it was around $800.

Depending on where you live, one of the experts from this site might be nearby and could do it for you cheaper. Good luck!

Nice looking car, good find.

That body looks best in white and black IMO, those colors seem to show it off the best.

I think they have more interior room than the new Taurus, and are close on trunk space. All that in something that's not 60" tall.
