- No trim specified for this review
- Beautiful look from the outside, especially in the Black Metallic paint.
- Gas mileage never getting close to 20, which is a big disappointment.
Purchased As New
This MKX is a beautiful vehicle to look at in its sparkling black metallic. The front end looks menacing and modern. The My Lincoln Touch is touchy alright. While electronics and software are enticing, they are also frustrating when they don't work well or are confusing. The slide controls for the fan speed and the radio volume are terrible. They either don't respond at all, or all of a sudden the volume is blasting or the fan goes from blasting to nothing in one touch. I find myself distracted from the road by looking at all of these screens and trying to adjust or locate things. It has taken me weeks to try to figure out the best way to unlock the rear doors so that people can get out without me having to manually open the rear doors for them. I am an electronic/gadget junkie, so I wanted all of the new and cool things, but they are very frustrating. The interior is beautiful, with good design to the dash. The center console area is a little too wide and my right knee rubs on it all of the time. The seats are comfortable, but the front passenger seat always seems to be moved up and forward leaving little room for your legs. Is it gremlins? I went from a GMC Envoy XL seven passenger gas hog which got 14-16 mpg, to the Lincoln MKX five passenger, and 8 years of new technology hoping to get better gas mileage. So far the difference is not very big for how much smaller this vehicle is and the added years to improve technology This is the second time that I have read all of the reviews on a vehicle, but went with what I liked instead of listening to the reviewers who told me to take a pass on the vehicle. With the Envoy they were right, and I regret it. I hope that I won't regret this purchase and should have bought the Acura instead which got great reviews. I guess the main reason I didn't was that the Acura would have been $55,000 plus with similar features.
