2012 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

the MKX is a bit of a sleeper - we test drove MB, Audi, BMW, Volvo before buying. Simply put to get teh same level of equipment in the equivalent import would push the price into the $70k range IF it is even available. For under $5ok the MKX gives you heated front AND rear seats, cooled front seats, Nav, blind spot and cross traffic warning system, adaptive cruise, HUGE sunroof, adaptive HID headlams, rear view camera, remote start, rain sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, heated and telescopic steering whee and collision controll. Try pricing and Audi, Volvo or BMW with all of those


Best Features

Adaptive cruise- if you have never used it before try it. Cooled seats are a must here in AZ. Very impressed with build quality - this is my first American made car (MKX is built in Canada actually) and I this car is very impressive. After 16months not a single issue, rattle or squeak.


Worst Features

seats could be more supportive for long drives. SYNC can be frustrating - needs to be re thought.

2012 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

After 2 months of shopping, we traded in our 8-year old Volvo XC70 for the MKX.
It matched our driving style perfectly (suburban errands and roadtrips in Minnesota), and is every bit as solid as our Volvo.
Loaded it with every option except the "cargo convenience" package.
AWD was a must, as were heated seats.
The MKX is only one of the group (Lexus RX350, Acura RDX, Volvo XC60, etc) with the higher ride of an SUV, without the attendant "roll" and bumps.
Noticeably quieter than the others.
The MYSYNC system works very well, but you MUST have the salesman walk you through the features, and limitations of the voice-activated interface.
The two-tone leather interior is sharp. Avg 19 mpg


Best Features

MSYNC command: "I'm hungry" It works! Bluetooth interface to iPhone is impressive for calls and music. The Navigation display shows a graphic of the actual highway exit or turnoff sign you're looking for. Rear seats are heated and recline. Push-button seat fold feature seemed extravagant until I had to load groceries in a downpour. Almost zero wind noise, and very little road noise...probably due to 20" wheels. HID headlights that bend into the turn are actually more beneficial than I thought they'd be.


Worst Features

The rear window wiper doesn't fold out, making window cleaning more difficult. Could use a couple more display options for Tach, Fuel, and Temp. The instantaneous MPG display is confusing...and worthless. The DVD describing the systems was useful, but a MYSYNC video would be even more helpful. A few scenes of drivers using the voice interface would help new owners get the nuances and cadence of the system.

2012 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I have just traded in my MKX after owning it for less than a year.
The new Lincoln and Ford MyTouch Sync is a disaster.
This system was pushed to market far to soon - very disappointed in Ford.
The system is buggy and slow.
Do not purchase any vehicle with the Ford or Lincoln MyTouch.

2012 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Bought this vehicle last April and have about 6K on it.
I've owned several SUVs and this is one of the best.
It is quiet, a great highway car.
I got the Adaptive Cruise Control and this is a super safe option that makes long highway trips a breeze.
MPG is in the hight teens around town and I've gotten 22-24 on trips.
The side safety light indicators in exterior rear view mirrors are great.
The front seats are quite comfortable and the Heated-A/C option in the seats is great.
The insync system takes quite a while to learn but is very functional,but too many steps..less steps & more buttons would make it easier.
Online travel info --weather, road delays is just OK, value is questionable,


Best Features

Adaptive Cruise Control, won't buy another car without it. Comfortable ride, plenty of power off the line and when passing. Good interior design, quiet, colors blend well, seats are comfortable on long trips. Very reliable so far, it just runs. Voice recognition is better than my wife's Lexus 350, but still not perfect.


Worst Features

The rear cargo cover is a cheap piece of cloth with bungie cords at the edges. My old Acura MDX roll-up cover was ten times better. This cover really cheapens the car. Front seats could travel just a bit more to the rear. Fewer button/selections in order to accomplish a task. For example, Add a trip odometer reset button versus multiple selections. Keep on working on the voice recognition system, not BAD, but could be improved. I'm not in love with the front grill design. Cup holders in doors could be a bit wider.

2012 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I just purchased my 2012 MKX and took a trip to the UP of Michigan.
The first day about 100 miles from home the GPS quit giving audio commands. Called dealer, said it was software problem and only way to fix was remove battery cable to reset system.
Second day GPS was in split screen mode with map/turn screen and map screen went black.
Had to pull over and turn off car to reboot system. Fourth day, tried to put Copper Harbor, MI in system, couldn't find it. Coming home 8inch screen locked up and remained on after turning car off.
Finally after several restart atempts, I shut off the ignition and waited about 2 minutes and the screen shut down.


Best Features

Stero system awsome! Very comfortable seats


Worst Features

Daytime running lights, Some type of headlight on indicator and major software upgrade on GPS system
