AWFUL

by sherry from California | June 05, 2020

purchased the MKX select & have had this vehicle for a year and a half. The suv had under 5,000 miles on it when we purchased it. A week or 2 after we bought it, we were driving & I felt the car jerk while driving & the oil light came on. (this was the only time the oil light came on, now it just breaks down with no warning) We pulled over & checked the oil- it was extremely low- hardly any in it. We took it back to the dealer & they did an oil change. Same thing happened a few months later. We have been in & out of the shop non stop with the same issue. It keeps eating up oil, but there is no obvious oil leak. The oil light doesn't even come on, or give us a warning- it just breaks down. We have been in & out of shops since we bought the piece of junk. They couldn't figure out the issue, so the shop was told to rebuild only the top part of the engine. Lincoln said that other cars that are our make/model have had the same issue, so they were rebuilding just the top part because they didn't know what else to do & that is what they were doing in these cases. So , I got my car back a few months (they had it in their shop for over a month) ago & had it back for maybe 2 months & BAM, I get in my car to leave someone's house & it wouldn't start... so I was stranded AGAIN. I had to tow the car to my house... again. We took it back to the shop & they said they didn't know what to do with it since we had had it in there so many times. We even took it back every few hundred miles for the oild consumption test, so we were in & out of shops A LOT. Now we were told by the corporate office to take it to a different lincoln dealer out of our town to see if they can figure it out. I just had a baby so now we have to have our family come watch him & drive an hour away to take it to other dealer. We have to start all over & we're told we need to drive up there every 500 miles. I have been dealing with the corporate office & they are rude & useless. I asked to speak to someone above the lady I'm dealing with & she said there is no one else above her. Our warranty is about to run out & when I asked if they would at least extend the warranty, I was told they can't do that. The new shop we are going to take it to also said that it could take months to figure out the problem... like a year and a half hasn't been enough time. This has been the most stressful experience I have ever had with a car. I will NEVER, NEVER buy a Lincoln again. We are stuck in a super high car payment with no help. I really wish I could get the CEOs contact info, or someone higher up. This is not right at all. I would give ZERO stars if that was an option

Exceptional !

by T-Bone from Columbus | April 14, 2020

Good-looking and surprisingly economical to operate. Overall, one of the nicest cars I've owned. The panoramic sun-roof is a wonder ! I could not be happier with it.

*****
Comfort and style

by DW shores of Lake Erie from Geneva, OH | March 07, 2020

The exterior white color shimmers in the sunlight. The interior light leather with dark trim accent colors was exactly what I was looking for. The drive of the vehicle is smooth, quiet and very comfortable. The controls to operate the cars many features are close with them either on the steering wheel or screen.
