The brakes take a bit to get used too, has a soft spongy brake pedal with lots of travel at low speeds, but when driving at highway speeds normal, I had the dealer replace the entire brake system including the lines and still the same result, we have owned the car 5 years and love the performance. Will replace it next year with a Ford Explorer AWD ecoboost.
Update Ford /Lincoln paid for new engine,Ford rep i wished I remembered her name she really showed compassion,and concerned,called me at least two times a week until the engine was replaced.i give her 10 stars. The MKT running great,. Leroy Shelley Jr
Got everything on it except, parallel parking. Self adjusting cruise control is amazing, so the the navigation system. Front brakes were replaced at 7500 miles, because of scratching sound. They will do it for free. Aside from that this car handles and performs with ease. Three hour trips are a breeze.
swivel headlights, adjusting cruise, back up camera, navigation system
front brakes were a problem from day 1. transmission slips and lurches every now and then. Four times in 9000 miles.
Have about 6500 miles on the MKT - vehicle is awesome! Styling definitely stands out-not another blah Lexus look-a-like. Performance kicks u- no-what! Lincoln definitely slammed one out of the park with this one. Style, comfort, performance, utility, technology, economy - it's all there - the total package! And guess what I forgot to mention - quality - from an American company - you already know it! If you buy from someone else, you truly are non-American. There is nothing the Asian 3 can offer that surpasses this vehicle.
3.5 L Ecoboost engine - it rocks! Fuel economy! Technology - all the bells and whistles! Sync and Nav are awesome - display leaves nothing to desire. Push button start. HID/adaptive lights. Sound system. Vista Roof! Overall comfort and functionality / utility. Just a great vehicle!
Not much. Need to increase "left leg" leg room. At 6'2", I need to be able to stretch out a bit. Fuel tank too small - should have about 450+ highway range. Need remote start! Need more instrumentation-with this price range, we need more than a temp gauge! Disable 3rd row flip & fold with cargo.
This is really a great car. I have over 9000 miles on my MKT and it's surpassed all my expectations. Who ever said this is a Ford Flex is pretty stupid. Its like saying a Camry comparable a Lexus ES350. The interior is first class the ride is smooth and quiet and most of all fun to drive. The hardware is top shelf and the interior up there with any BMW or Mercedes. Fuel economy is also very good for a car this size. I'm averaging about 19 mpg city/highway.
Great exterior looks, fantastic interior and quiet smooth ride. It is so easy to get in and out of this car because of the large doors. This car is just one great machine.
Lincoln could really blow the competition out of the market by including both the Nav system and adaptive cruise control. Add the cost to the base price nobody would blink an eye. Its such a classy first rate car it would only entice more people to take a chance on a Ford product.
