2008 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

We live on a mountain with a 15% grade for 4 miles. Our last car, a Montego, performed excellently with a CVT. It lacked power and was noisy so we wanted the same car with a Lincoln trim. The MKX seemed like the best answer and they market the 6 speed transmission as barely perceptable shifting. The CVT is no longer available. Since all of the Lincoln dealers shut down near our house we bought this 50 miles away without a test drive on our hill. Big mistake! It is truly wonderful as all other reviewers say on normal roads but the transmission hunts horribly on our hill. The L setting shifts from 2nd to first abruptly when slowing around blind corners and you have to go back to D to 2nd.

Favorite Features

Extremely quiet. tThe creature comforts are all there!

Suggested Improvements

Put in the 2005-2007 Montego's CVT! Or at least put back the 2 in the PRNDL. Or imply build a Montego with the Lincoln trim level and quiet ride.
