1999 Lincoln Continental Repair Question
Driver seat track assembly
Is there a problem with choosing a used driver's seat track assembly over a new one? Is this such a common problem with this car that there's a good chance I'll have the same problem with the used one and have to replace it again?
I've gotten several quotes from repair shops and they have all quoted me replacement and labor costs of around $1,000. I asked my main shop to look into a used one but haven't heard back from him. . . I think he's stalling. I've researched it myself online and found several available, all with a 30 day guarantee. I'm just worried I'm being penny wise and pound foolish in opting for a used one, even though it's at least $400 cheaper. Thanks for any info you can give me.
I have a 1999 Lincoln Continental, 8 cylinders, 123,000 miles
Before getting a different one, have you checked to make sure the motor is the problem? It could even be a bad switch not sending enough power to the motor. If you haven't checked that, I would recommend it. After that, I would save the 400 dollars and get the used one with a warranty.
