Pros looks, cabin electronics, confort, style
Cons processor of the head unit
Pros All luxury features are standard; power lift gate. auto start, heated and cooled front seats, keyless entry, etc.
Cons MyLincoln touch is slow, buggy, requires to many "button" pushes to be safe (and keep your eyes on the road). Do away with the screen and "bump" buttons and use toggle switches and buttons. BUGS, BUGS, BUGS
Summary Drive to the store, the car is good, no problem. Use MyTouch for anything and you will hate your purchase. I heard about an update in 2012 and it had better be good. It takes more work and eyes of the road to use than regular dials. Buggy beyond belief. Slow, sluggish, horrible. All four aspects of the touch screen have had an issue. As for navigation, 95% of the time I use Google maps on my phone to find my address of destination, pull over to the side of the road (you can't enter an address as you drive, even if you have a passenger) and then enter my address for my destination. The nav system can't find a point of interest to save its life. And the voice commands can't understand a word. My wife and I used the voice command to find "Five Guys" and all it could say is "use common words." It doesn't get more common than "five" and "guys." They should have not released this system the way it is, it had to be tested and found to be problematic.
Pros power. ride. quiet. tech. love the seats. warrenty, price.
Cons i don't know of any yet
Summary the ride in this vehicle is so quiet i thought there was something wrong when riding on the highway at 120 km/h. i could hear a slight ticking and i thought it was coming from the car. it was actually my friends watch....how many cars can you hear a watch ticking in at 120 km/h? the reviewer just didn't learn how to use the car and instead complained about it. the mytouch sync can easily be upgraded to get fixes, although i haven't had to do this. sure, if you press on the screen like a mad man as soon as the car is started and don't wait for it to respond you will see a little lag, but the truth is it works fine. i am surprised at how well the system recognizes speech. the car has great power and handling, i am surprised by what it can do. the reviewer also mentions fuel economy, new cars always take a while to get to the rated economy and mine is what i expected and is especially good on the highway. BMW is more expensive and much heavier and has no acceleration compared to this car. don't listen to the reviews...try the car yourself. it is solid and is built like a tank, no problems so far.
Pros The car itself is very nice, roomy and comfortable. Handles well, ride is stiff and you feel all bumps, especially with the most expensive wheel package.
Cons The stiffness and bump translation aside, the BIGGEST problem with this vehicle is the BlueTooth! The static is UNBELIEVABLEY BAD! We've had it in the shop four times and the service techs and even regional engineers are stumped and only mildly interes
Summary I feel bad that I pushed my wife to purchase this vehicle. A good phone in a car these days is required, especially for an executive who needs to make use of drive time to catch up on calls! The Lincoln MKX does not offer a good phone sync at all, as described above. We've been put off in a hundred ways - maybe it's your phone... is your phone one of the approved phones?... let's reboot the system... Oh, well.... The Ford people are clueless here and the stonewalling is devastatingly dissappointing since I own Ford stock and really wanted to support the company by buying Ford product. Lincoln is supposed to equal LUXURY. The ride should be smoother and the phone should be flawless. If you have a $2000 pair of binoculars but they poke you in the eye every time you use them, it doesn't matter the value of the binocs, you can't get past the poke in the eye! This Bluetooth problem is just like that. A poke in the EAR!
