@ 130k miles, every morning the driver side rear was sitting low. Starting car fixed it. 3k miles later, dash light "Check Air Suspension" would be on at start, until car was level. Leaky air bag. Lincoln estimate was $900 for repair, $700 for replace with springs. Caught it early, the compressor did not need replacing. Bought air bags & dryer rebuild kit on eBay. Works great. I recommend a new dryer, the rebuild kit takes too much time. Still need new shocks.
pump ran all the time ,now it doesn'nt
back end of car almost sitting on pavement. Visited dealer and it was fixed
The ais suspension light is on, the rear is sagging, and I can't afford a big repair.

Are suspension light comes on and sagging in back
Air leaking from bags - told it was $1000 to replace, lots of other problems other people have posted as well including: water on floorboard (rear passenger) when it rains, check engine light keeps coming on due to gas cap (even after having it replaced at the dealer), I take manifold leaking (we had the same problem with our 1996 town car), electrical issues - power windows and seats randomly work.
