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


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.
