I purchased a 2010 Lincoln MKX and am dissatisfied with the dual climate control air conditioning system. The system in the automatic mode does not cool the vehicle as stated in the manual. This was witnessed by service manager at the Ganley dealership in cleveland as well as a regional rep. They state the system is working within ford's parameters. Flaw is that if the temperature outside is above 80 degrees the inside temp of the system is set at 70 or 72, when the temp inside the vehicle hits 80 the fan speed will reduce, and the vehicle will not cool in a reasonable amount of time (20 minutes? )as the manual states.I cannot safely drive and dial in the manual a/c.
The exterior look sold the vehicle, looks and drives like a $50,000 vehicle/
Dual climate control, a selling feature but does no work as described in the manual. Proof is there,the vehicle does not cool down using the automatic mode.Summer in Cleveland is hot an humid, temp outside above 80. temp inside will only decrease to 80, then the fan goes low and no comfort.
