Real Word Review of the 2010 Lincoln MKS
By doc81 on


2011 Lincoln MKS 4dr Sedan AWD w/EcoBoost (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


I bought an MKS in December 2010, after three years of exhaustive online comparisons, Edmunds reviews filled with disdain, New England Automobile Shows and test drives. I was looking for 3 basic criteria in a new car: V-8 power, Rear-Leg room for my in-laws, and a Large Trunk which would easily fit my golf clubs. The MKS does all of this in spades!! The leather interior far surpasses the Ford Taurus. Only the BMW 760Li, Audi L8 and 2009 Infinity M45 were comparable...for $20-80K more! Overall, the MKS is a spacious full-sized luxury car, that errs on the side of technology rather than interior detail for less than half the cost of a comparable European luxury sedan.

Favorite Features

The Twin Turbo (Ecoboost) absolutely does 0-60 in around 5 seconds. On the highway, tramp on the pedal, and you are instantly doing 100mph, thanking God that you had two hands on the wheel and weren’t turning at the time! No compromising trunk space for rear seat comfort as you do with the TL, CTS, STS or Genesis! Six (6) foot 50 and 70 year olds enter the back seats comfortably and coo about the heated front and rear leather seats…and my golf clubs and cart fit horizontally, without me having to angle them! Real World MPG 21 mixed, 26 NJTPK, (24.5 with GWB). Not having to spend $20,000-$80,000 more for a little bit more leather or wood!

Suggested Improvements

Heaven help the Europeans and Japanese if Ford ever decides to add a little bit more detail and leather and wood to it’s interior. It won’t take $20,000-80,000 of it!

Doc, you are right on. Good advice about holding the wheel tight when you "tramp" on it. You can get to twice the legal limit much faster than just about anything else out there!
