I bought this car, loaded, used in the summer of 2012. Since it only had 17,000 miles on it I really thought it would be a good car I could drive for several more years. I sold it 7 months later. As far as I'm concerned Lincoln(Ford) builds nothing but junk. The acceleration was terrible; pokey and jerky. I'd be at a stop light with no one near me for miles and the side assist warning system would starting beeping. Two months in and part of the driver's seat fell apart and a piece of the grill fell out.
Gas mileage was terrible and in the rain the MKS drove skidded all over. I'll never buy a Lincoln or Ford again.
Acceleration - go drive a Buick and see how smooth they make it. Bigger trunk. Better quality interieor.
