I'm a coupe kind of guy. I like to be low to the ground and have a grip of where all my tires are. The idea of an SUV has never really intrigued me... that is until I test drove the MKX. It was small enough that I felt like I still had control of it and large enough to handle any extra storage we may need. I loved the black interior with natural colored wood grain trim. It's the perfect combination in my opinion. On top of the black exterior. For an '08 the features are pretty outstanding. The white dash lights are very nice as opposed to the green or amber I've been so accustomed to. The ride is very comfortable and the cooled/heated seats make it even more comfortable. The interior lighting is bright, but it's not annoying to the driver. The only thing we had come up with it is the speed sensor went out 1500 miles after owning it. Fortunately, the dealer put a 3000 mile warranty on it, pretty surprising for an 8 year old vehicle, and it was covered. Otherwise, it was about an $800 expense. Regardless, I love this SUV. I'm very glad we held out and went with Lincoln. Even though I'm a Toyota guy, I have always liked Ford, and I figured Lincoln was the way to go if I wanted all the features.

Could've had a V8!!!!

I bought it used. Beautiful vehicle. Took it home decided to give it a a good wax job and to my surprise the rust was eating it up. I took it back to the dealership for help with this. Nothing, it has 54,000 miles on it and they told me to contact Lincoln. No help there either. About a year later, I receive safety recalls, rust corrosion because the 2008 was not sealed properly. So check your gas tank straps and cooling system for excessive corrosion. Took it for inspection, even the covering on my shocks are ate off by rust. The entire frame is extensively rusted. Lincoln said to have it inspected. I did. Yes it's extensive Ms dumbass for buying this vehicle, but no safety issues so nothing will be done. I call bullshit!! This vehicle has been nothing but a money pit. BEWARE!! I will never buy another FORD product.

After several horrible experiences with European vehicles, I decided to buy domestic again. I dig the clean crisp styling, strong stance, & front grill reminiscent of Lincoln's past. The ride is firm yet comfortable, it handles well, & mileage is decent. The sound system is great. The clutter free instrumentation with retro gauges is pleasing. The cabin is roomy with plenty of cargo space. Quality leather seats are comfortable. Fit & finish is top notch inside & out. It could benefit from a rear view backup camera. The silver painted interior plastic looks like silver painted plastic. I really like the MKX, it is safe, stylish, reliable, & comfortable. It will likely be a favorite of ours.

I looked at a lot of SUV and crossovers and I liked the MKX best. The combo of style, performance, and features made it easy to "buy American." I like how it drives; more of a sedan feel rather than a truck- like drive. Cooled seats in Texas set it apart from all the others. I really like the Ipod hookup, satellite radio, nav system, and hands free phone functions. And they are all integrated & work perfectly. I averaged 19 mpg for the 36k miles I had it; and the 6 cyl had plenty of zip. Only negative is that the battery died after 2 years but the quick response I got from the dealer made up for even that one negative. I am spoiled and will not go back to a lesser vehicle.

Before I bought the MKX, I was about to buy Nissan Xterra. And then My dad recommend me to buy Lexus RX350 or Lincoln MKX. After I drove both then I bought MKX. Now MKX has 24K mileage, without any trouble, just oil change 3 times. Ah right, there were one problem at 22K, its steering wheel vibrated while pushing brake from 70 MPH to 0 MPH. After went to dealership for tire rotation, then the problem is gone with no charge any penny! Very happy to have MKX!

I wanted a vehicle that could tow up to 3500 pounds and not drive like a noisey / bouncy truck. This car is awesome! I've had it over a year now, put 15,600 miles on it, and it has operated flawlessly. To make it perfect, I've added an aftermarket backup camera and additional matching wood trim to the "Plain Jane" painted areas around the radio / center console areas. I love that it can quietly / rapidly accelerate and briskly corner without leaning. Year - end rebates, bonus cash, and generous dealer discounts made it irresistible.

Fun car to own

Terrific car to own and drive. 21,000 miles and getting 17+ around town 24 on the highway. Great in snow and ice and on trips. We take 700 mile trips frequently and always enjoy the ride. Only negative is the hard seat cushions. Handling is good, mileage better than expected and overall performance excellent. Dealer experience is excellent. They went out of their way to satisfy me with the PTU problem and fixed it when other dealers were having difficulty.

When I first laid eyes on my 2008 White Chocolate "Tri-coat" Limited Edition and was 'in love'! It was everything I wanted and more. I had shopped extensively, and being used to high-end vehicles, was amazed at the array of options that came with the MKX. Exterior/interior were gorgeous! I've had it almost two years now, and still get stares while on the road. We all know what they are, so I'll decline to mention them here, again. However, after only two years, my lovely car must go. It seems to stay in the shop more than in my garage! The service dept seems clueless, too, with this SUV. So, I hate it, but I'm looking to trade. I envy you guys who are not having trouble. Beautiful car!

As far as the exterior style goes, nice lines, sharp looking! Here comes the bad news! It has a horrible exhaust noise that sounds like a cow ready to give birth! The ride is smooth if you're on a newly paved road, but at higher speeds, turn up the volume! The MKX needs to be find tuned, there are just too many squeaks and rattles for it to be marked Lincoln! It's a glorified Ford Edge! Too bad! Nice looking!

My wife and I really like this SUV. It does the job, comfort, style and MPG. But when towed behind our Motorhome by the book, several times we have arrived at our destination with a dead battery in the MKX. The dealer's' say no problemo, there is nothing wrong with the suv. Just blank looks no solutions.We like the SUV but...

This is a great car and I truly enjoy driving it. Had a major road trip from mid south up to Niagara Falls and back this past summer. The MKX really shines on road trips, with plenty of power and quiet comfort. (Amazing - no road noise! No sqeaks or rattles!) Its a V6 but it has all the zip of a V8. The satellite radio, sound system, MS Sync, power and USB ports are all terrific. Couldn't do without them now.

I have now had my MKX for 1.25 years. I cannot say enough great things about it. The creme brulee color and the light tan interior still look brand new. I love all the features can't say enough about the sync (makes me lazy). I have numerous people try to buy it from me. This is the most luxurious sexy fun car I have ever owned. My 12 year old and his friends LOVE the rockin' steroe system. I can't believe it is stock. My gas mileage continues to improve with each oil change. I am now getting 24 hwy and 10 city. Would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone.

We were looking for a vehicle large enough to carry 4 passengers and luggage to and from the airport. Turns out this car was that and also great to drive. Very comfortable ride and all of the amenities. Navigation works well. No service issues over 2 years. We were going to buy a less expensive crossover, but were glad we didn't. "Sync", however, is annoying. The usb port for the ipod is great, no wires, charges the ipod. Voice commands aren't worth the trouble. The indexing tells you each time that it experienced problems and you need to go their website - right! The phone would not stay connected with the bluetooth. The dealer and tech support were no help. Overall, great car.

Actual gas mileage is 19.1 from inception. Car gets a lot of compliments. Paint job is much better that wife's similarily priced Toyota. Sync is superior system, the phone quality is crystal clear.

I traded my 05 Expedition 4X4 for the MKX. We all love our new "Lincoln" as my kids (8 & 3) lovingly refer to the MKX. It is an exceptionally stylish car with very sharp look. Recently we took it on our first overnight trip. The rear seat comfortably held 2 car seats and the center arm rest was perfect for their cups. The front seats are very comfortable, as my husband and I are very tall 6'2 and 5'10. He is now looking at the Lincoln truck!

MKX quality far exceeds any that of the 2004 Saturn VUE I traded in. It is the perfect fit for my requirements; a versatile vehicle that's not too big with just enough extra convenience "stuff" to make it comfortable & fun. Great for country living with city style!

Although I love the looks and feel of this vehicle it has been nothing but a headache. Always in the shop. It is wonderful to drive when it is running! Service department seems to have no clue on what is wrong. Can anyone say lemon? it is unfortunate that I have had this experience because I had my eye on a Lincoln for a long time before I decided to buy one. Now it seems I made a huge mistake. I am thinking about getting a more reliable vehichle and just giving up on my pretty Lincoln. I need a car that is dependable because I have an infant and I don't want to be stranded on the side of the road again. So sad

This car is a pleasure to drive and especially to look at. I have never had a vehicle get as many admiring looks and compliments. Here's the "but" from the title. Ford is having a tremendous problem with the PTU in the Edge and MKX. Mine has been back 4 times with leaking seals. Ford has no idea how to correct the problem. I am very disappointed with the company. The car is absolutely wonderful but the experience is being ruined by the mechanical problem that Ford cannot fix. If they finally get it right the car will be wonderful. Take a look at the Edge forum on Fords site and see just what I am talking about.

What an incredible car. We had a 2006 Cadillac CTS. Had to move to something not RWD and a little bigger. Looked at the Edge, looked at GM products, as I was a GM loyalist, but nothing compared to the MKX. Great styling, superb comfort, cool features, all rolled into one little sharp CUV. I could go on and on about this vehicle. We usually change cars it seems like every couple of years. I don't see us giving up the MKX. Oh I almost forgot, zero interest as well. Now who doesn't love free money! What a super value all around. Always looking forward to the next time I get to drive it.

Four months of driving and I still have problems with knocked knee caps on the dash. I took it in hoping that there was a recall on the tail gate lifting cylinders as any time below 32 degrees it only lifts 3/4 open. Slow learner took me two head knocks to remember to push up to load, so I have to open back gate before taking things out of the house. My Town and Country does not have this problem. Dealer said it works when in the shop and would do nothing to fix the problem. As a new stock holder I hate to write this but as a tax payer I more understand why some companies should go out of business.

Aggressive, yet very inviting, approachable appearance of the car. My wife now has a black MKX and I chose the White Chocolate for keeping the car clean looking. I'm a Buick owner (3 Regals) for the quiet and comforting cars they build. My wife wanted the Lincoln MKX. On the drive home, I instantly fell for the new levels of quiet in this Ford product - didn't believe it at first. No creaks, no sounds, and all the way around well functionally constructed design. Whether finding a comfortable seat, accessing the cargo bay or opening up the Vista roof, all are a pleasure.

Always a Buick owner. Quiet, rubber soft quiet tires, yet with power are my likes. Hated Ford products due to the incessant noise. No longer. I bought a black MKX for my wife and on the drive home, turned around and bought another 5 days later. Incredibly roomy, well thought out access to all seats, great sync features, good sound system, and the leather seats look tight yet flexible for seating.

I researched and drove just about every mid sized SUV out there before deciding on the MKX. It came down to the Lexus RX and the MKX. No question, the MKX is a better value than the RX, especially with the year deals out there. I bought the MKX the day before Christmas. We took it on a long trip the week after Christmas that involved roughly 2,000 miles of driving. FL to NC to VA and back to FL. The driving was a good mix of interstate, around town and curvy mountain roads. I could not be happier with the performance and handling! We averaged roughly 24 MPG on the highway, 18 around town. Right on the money per the window sticker. This car is everything I expected and more!

Looking for a lot of features packed into one vehicle that you can buy for $36,000, (with elite and ultimate packages), this vehicle is a good value. We have driven BMW and Mercedes brands for the past 20 years. This vehicle is no match. Buying a two year old ML320 is a better value. Especially when the Lincoln gets 17.5 MPG highway. My wife would drive just about anything. If I don't have to drive this car more than once per week, that's plenty.

Fun to drive - always gets excellent reviews and comments from others. Had the vehicle for 11 months, driven over 20000 miles, average 23.5 mpg and did I say it was AWD. Love the phone, sunroof, interior, and open space. Also, I tow this vehicle behind my motorhome for over 10000 miles with no problems.

I bought my MKX a month ago. I was going to buy a Toyota Highlander Limited until I drove an MKX. I love the MKX. It is very comfortable to drive for both my husband and myself. We are both over six feet tall. The heated seats and phone system is great. I have plenty of room for all of the items that I have to carry for work and for my two year old. I am averaging 18.65 MPG overall. I am very happy with this.automobile

My wife has been driving a Lexus 350 (3 different year models) for nine years.With nothing exciting about the Lexus styling anymore, we jumped to the Lincoln MDX. We sure don't miss the Lexus for a second. For a man, the Lincoln is a much better fit. I don't have to contend with the pull-down skinny armrests any longer when I drive it. And the features have it over the Lexus by a mile. Don't have to pay an extra $3500 either for blue tooth as in Lexus. Lincoln's phone sync is great. Gas mileage is better than Lexus at 24mpg on road, and the sun roof is fantastic. I love this crossover and will get one myself at the end of 2009.

Have 2800 miles on the car and I absolutely love it. SYNC (very easy to use), THX sound and Sirius are outstanding. Cooled/heated seats, very quiet & comfortable interior, headlights that move with steering, power liftgate are major additions. Engine/transmission powerful and smooth. Comparing my Limited with any competitor was not even close from a value perspective. This was a great buy. Mileage better than I thought - 19 around town and 22+ on the highway. Handles equally well in town or on the highway - a true pleasure to drive. Seats 4-5 people more comfortably than any of its competitors. Insurance cost was surprisingly low. Don't overlook this car. It is awesome!

Superb Limited Edition

You know this is a special vehicle if I traded my '04 Mercury Marauder and '08 Ford Bullitt Mustang to get this. I have the AWD Limited Monochromatic version with all the goodies. Great looking black grille and two toned interior set it apart from the rest. Drives great and has enough power to accelerate when needed. Great ride height. Built very well. All doors sound solid when closing. Uncluttered engine compartment. Easy access through the powered rear hatchback.

Great Luxury, Workmanship, Handling

The MKX is our second Lincolon product and third Ford product. Traded in our 2005 Aviator, which we loved, for the MKX. Which we love even more! Ford/L makes a great product. Its really sad to see all the negative press that our American car manufactures recieve. I, for one, don't get it. We looked around at all the alternatives in the crossover market and found the MKX hard to beat. Now that we have been driving it for two weeks, we are extremely satisfied. Great ride, very nice and comfortable intererior,great sound & toys and what a great sunroof! Fantastic! Next best thing to having a convertable. Well done Ford/Licoln. If you're looking for a new crossover, we highly recommended this one

We love this crossover. Rides nice and interior features are excellent. Had car for about 2 months and the only problem we encountered is the automatic trunk opener. Opens and doesn't close. It goes down and up and not closing properly. Been at the dealership twice already.

I drive a state vehicle for work and my wife has a one mile commute to work so our personnal vehicles have very low mileage. We do take a trip from Boston to NJ to visit the grandkids on our free weekends so we were looking for a real nice vehicle to make the trip a little easier. We searched around and decided on a MKX. It has already made four trips to NJ without any disappointments, it makes the journey so much more pleasureable. The MKX has not disappointed us one iota. But I have a question on the wheels, has anyone else noticed the chrome is seperate from the aluminum wheel? The Navigator wheel looks the same but it is one piece. And I have heard of the chrome on the MKX wearing off.

This is our first purchase of a Ford factory car and now we would consider another Lincoln at a later date. We enjoy driving this SUV because it is not too big or too small. It is very well built, good looking and has the feel of luxury. People are constantly saying that they like the way it looks and ask us how it drives. We tell them it has a very smooth drive and that it has terrific features.

The wife and I purchased our MKX about three months ago and love it. We also test drove Lexus, Infiniti, Acura and others, and found all of them to be over priced with no more features then the MKX. I was at first skeptical to buy a Ford product, but now I am glad I did. The MKX has met our needs with room, comfort, excellent ride and price. My wife loves the Sync system, NAV system and THX sound system.

I leased this Linclon for my wife who has her grandchilders at time. She is extreamly happy with the car.She can put both of the grandchildern in the rear car seats without bending. The car has 7,000 mile and never been back to the dealership for any reason. I enjoy driving this & when I take it on a trip I get 25MPG plus. Around town it gets high 17 or low 18. I like this Lincoln so well that I am considering the new 2009 or 2010 Lincoln MKS for my business car. P/S I also own a LS 430 Lexus.

We have never been Ford product fans, but fell in love with the MKX at our local auto show in Nov. This was 5 months after we purchased a 2008 Lexus RX350, which is our 7th Lexus. The Lexus was for my wife and I traded in my convertible after falling in love with the MKX. We both love the MKX. It is much more comfortable on long trips than the RX. My wife took the MKX over and I drive the RX to and from work. We get many positive comments on the MKX. We have the black with the 20" chrome wheels. The Sync is awesome and much, much better than the similar system in the RX. We love the Vista roof and all the goodies. I'm pretty confused when the "critics" call this inferior!

Brought the car while I was up in Virginia on a visit. Owned Fords and Lincolns for a long time. This one by far is the best. My wife drove it back while I drove our old Ford van back. She loved all the gadgets, I call them toys for adults. So far it preforms just like they say. I go for safety more than gas mileage.

Love this SUV!

I have had my MKX for almost a week. I was coming off a lease on a Ford Freestyle. I was looking to upgrade a bit and test drove so many SUVs...Lexus RX350, Acura MDX, Cadillac SRX (more wagon like), Audi Q7, Mercedes R (again..more wagon like) and didn't really consider the MKX because I wasn't thrilled with my Ford. I test drove the MKX and fell in love. The ride is fantastic, price was great. Love Sync. So far extremely happy with my decision.

This is an easy crossover to love. Excellent acceleration and power curve. Great visibility. Glorious sunroof! This great machine handles like a dream come true with the ultimate package with it's 20 inch wheels. Great steering feel and a quiet cabin. The interior and controls are well thought out and very comfortable. Brakes are better than people say but have some progressive fade. Body roll is minimal for the height of the vehicle. My husband is 6,5" and is comfortable driving. Styling is fine and it's very easy on the eyes! All in all we love our MKX!

My lease was coming up on my landrover Lr3 so instead of emotional decisions (not good) I did my homework. I narrowed down a yearlong search to Lexus Rx, Lincoln MKX, and BMW X5.The BMW was only OK on the inside, after 3years in my LR3 I didn't want any sporty black plastic.I wanted wood,leather and comfort.I couldn't decide so I dealed on both.While I had to drop alot of toys to get the price I wanted on the Lexus, I actually added stuff to my MKX(dual dvd's in headrest)plus my maintenance is free. My kids (three boys) LOVE the MKX.The comfort of the back seats that recline,big sunroof,and awesome THX surround sound. I couldn't be happier! Geez, I forgot to mention the sync :) LOL

I have 2,000 miles on my 2008 MKX. I have the front wheel drive with both the Ultimate & elite packages. Car gets a lot of compliments. Fun to drive, smooth ride, no problems. Vapor Silver color is very sharp. Technology is impressive and works very well. Panoramic sunroof is like a convertible. Gas mileage a little less than what I hoped for but much better than my Aviator. I compared to MDX, RX 350 & new Murano - this is best ride and value for the money. Ford Lincoln Mercury got it right this time!!

Have 1300 miles on car. Have owned several Fords-no problems. Bought this car to keep several years-wrong move. Very disappointed. Engine has loud single pecking noise at cold start after auto choke shuts down. Getting worse. Service department & Ford engineer hears noise, don't know what is causing it and that nothing can be done about it-say some do it and some don't? Also, constant struggle with steering- pulls out of road-wears me out to drive it. Feels like it doesn't have power steering at times. Service dept has checked and says normal for FWD-I have owned other FWDs that did not do that-a little stiffer steering I expected but not this. Bad move buying this car-lot of money wasted

Leased my 08 MKX now for a month and it is a pretty good vehicle. I have enjoyed driving it. I get lots of compliments on the looks of the MKX. The car is comfortable to drive and generally easy to manuever. Read below about the brakes. Powerful THX soundsystem is awesome. Roomy for passengers. Overall, I can recommend this vehicle. It just needs to fix a couple things to be considered an elite gotta have vehicle.

Compared the Edge to the MKX and the MKX is a better value and better looking. Bought the MKX in March with the 20" chrome wheels and black exterior. Looked at an another MKX with the 18" wheels but the 20" looks extra nice. The monochrome limited edition completes the package! Average 18 MPG in mixed driving with no problems at all. Really like the telescoping wheel since I am very tall. Lots of rear seat room as well as room behind the rear seats. Good size for a family of four. Was worried about not having AWD since I live in snow country, but the FWD MKX did extremely well in our last major snowstorm!

We live on a mountain with a 15% grade for 4 miles. Our last car, a Montego, performed excellently with a CVT. It lacked power and was noisy so we wanted the same car with a Lincoln trim. The MKX seemed like the best answer and they market the 6 speed transmission as barely perceptable shifting. The CVT is no longer available. Since all of the Lincoln dealers shut down near our house we bought this 50 miles away without a test drive on our hill. Big mistake! It is truly wonderful as all other reviewers say on normal roads but the transmission hunts horribly on our hill. The L setting shifts from 2nd to first abruptly when slowing around blind corners and you have to go back to D to 2nd.

I've had such good experience with this car, I had to send in another review. Gas mileage has greatly improved. Pure interstate driving yeilded 25 MPG and around town at 16 MPG so I'm very pleased for this sized auto. Comfort, fit and finish all very good and the ride gets better everytime I'm in the car. Now, my wife has discovered the MKX so she's driving it whenever possible. She like the great visiability without the big SUV size.

I kept coming back to this car for its overall value, fun factor and genuine interest in how Lincoln could put all of this in such an affordable package. I can use this as a family car or just go out for a ride by myself. I do my homework when it comes to cars and I feel I was well rewarded.

I researched the MKX and the Edge to death and decided on the MKX because of all the "bells and whistles". This car is so much fun to drive. Coming from an Expedition, this car still has a lot of room to transport two kids and all their sport equipment. I love the quiet ride and being wrapped in luxury. The Bluetooth capability is awesome.

Well, gotta tell you that this car is great. Ford just might have a winner here. Sure its a re-packaged Ford Edge, but they pulled it off. Fit and finish are perfect. Ride, handling and preformance are what you'd expect. Well worth the extra dough over an Edge. I considered other crossovers, but they came off to me as either a station wagon or a small truck. Performace is better in the Lexus and couple of others which was nice but not important as the MKX is better priced. The MKX will get out of the way and run with any of them. Now, I only have a 1,000 miles with half that coming on a road trip that gave me 19.4 MPG. You gotta give MKX a look.

After being sure that my next car would be the Acura MDX, I drove the Lincoln MKX at my husband's request...and now I own a fully-loaded Limited Edition MKX. I found the MKX to have a softer, quieter ride, better visibility, and easier to use features- -not to mention an amazing panoramic sunroof. With the addition of SYNC on the 2008, the deal was sealed. Although many do not consider the MKX a competitor for the MDX, a side-by side comparison reveals a more luxurious feel and all the option--for considerably less. Although many feel American cars are not as reliable..I decided not to trade my 1999 Navigator with 165,000 that is still going strong!

Researched and drove a number of crossovers before purchasing the Lincoln MKX. The MKX was quieter and handled better than the Lexus RX 350. The MKX, in my opinion, is a better value-offering more options and toys than many other similar crossovers. While the MKX is slightly longer than the 2008 RX 350, the new 2009 RX 350 will be 5" longer in 2009 and a new design. While some have complained that the MKX seats are too firm ,we actually like the firmness.The Ford Sync and the navigation systems are fantastic. Very user friendly. Climate controls are extremely easy to use and uncluttered. Great acceleration. Brakes are a little soft. Gas mileage somewhat disappointing so far, but all SUV's are

First time buying American in years, and what a huge upside surprise this vehicle has been. Quality of build (interior and fairly tight exterior), has been very strong. Engine is very quiet and a lot stronger than expected. Ride is outstanding, almost sporty for a crossover. Power a/c seats, power liftgate, combination touch pad unlocking on driver door. We love this truck!

The more I drive it the more I like it. My MKX is epuipped with the Sync system which lets you tell it what you'd like to hear or who you'd like to call through Bluetooth. I've got a 160 GB hard drive connected to the system and can voice command my entire music library which is absoulutely amazing. I actually like the firmer seats that some of the reviews reference as a negative. They feel very German (I had a BMW that had very firm seats). The interior is great. Materials are quite nice and the ride is very quiet. My neighbor that has a 2007 M-B ML 63 AMG wants to trade in for the Lincoln (I'm not kidding).He can't get over the sound system and the Vista Roof. I would definitely recommend
