2013 Lincoln MKX 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Lincoln was once a proud brand and builder of significant American luxury cars. The brand died altogether more than 20 years ago but Ford has not yet caught on to this news.

The MKX is an appalling vehicle. The exterior and interior design are both revolting and non-functional. This is Ford Edge remodeled by Stevie Wonder. It is beyond me how, in 2013, a carmaker could offer such a poor design. For example, none of the buttons or switches inside are logically placed or obvious to use. Buttons on the steering wheel require removing your hands to access. Buttons are the dash are microscopically small and usually take many attempts to operate. The touch screen is just a mess.

Best Features

The motor is ok and has adequate power. Unfortunately, ours has terrible throttle tip in which causes frantic lurching in parking lots. The stereo sound is ok but operating the stereo on screen or via the steering wheel is a disaster. Ride and seats are very comfortable and seat adjustment is excellent. Also, heated and cooled seats are fabulous.

Worst Features

Restyle the interior and exterior. Add very basic features like nav, sunroof, and auto headlights. Fix the rear visibility which is the worst I have ever experienced. Add a backup cam. Remove the horrible chrome which reflects sun from all angles. Improve the mileage. I could go on all day.
