Purchased As New
Owner and driver since February 20th 2010. Adaptive cruise and adaptive HID head light is a must, the best feature available.
I normally carry 5 passengers, but having the third row power fold into position as needed is great for my old bones.
Sync Voice activation at the push of one button operates almost every feature and works great. (The commercial says "hands free" but you do have to push one button before speaking).
Heated/cooled seats work great.
Dual rear seat dvd's that work from the dashboard NAV screen, now that's integration. You can actually play three different movies in this car with out disturbing the other movie watchers.
EcoBoost is a wonderful motor, powerful - yes. Economical - not yet I'm only getting 13-15 mpg in city driving but I still hope for improvement with only 3k miles so far.
Blind spot monitor works as intended.
Self park feature is great because you can't see to well out of the rear (read on).
Complaints - rearward visibility with the rear headrest in place is non-existent. The rear view camera, back-up assist and B.L.I.S. are required in this car.
The front armrest are uneven and when placed in a comfortable position may cover part or all of your beverage holder. That being said I ordered this car the way I wanted it and this is my first brand new car in 32 years so no one is going to be drinking anything in this 60k car until I make the first spill ;^}.
Overall I love it. I will say that if the Ford FLEX had the Adaptive Cruise and Headlights options available I probably be driving the FLEX. I did compare them side by side - handling, available options, sound insulation and quality of materials used in the LINCOLN justified the 10k price difference to me. My only sacrifice was 3rd row headroom and because my smallest kids are aged 3,9,and 10 I fell I have 8 years before the smallest grows out of the 3rd row. By then the 18 and 17 year old will have there own cars.
Last and not least but it is most controversial is the look. Hey you either love it, leave it, or tolerate it. It is the Corporate face of LINCOLN and it is here for at least three to five years (product cycling? )
