Quiet, comfortable ride with good visibility and control. Makes long trips comfortable.

Leaked coolant without warning and caused engine failure at 80k miles.

Loved The Car But It Failed To Warn Of The Coolant Leak Which Ruined The Engine — Loved everything about it except the engine failure as I drove cross country. If I had been warned that the coolant had leaked out I might have been able to avoid engine failure/seizure. Other than that, I thought it was a great car.

Most Desirable Mid Size Suv. — In doing research into my next vehicle, I found almost unanimous praise for the RX series from Lexus. I know 3 people with these vehicles, and none would even consider selling their RX. And with their reliability, they probably won't have to.

Pros

Always owned Lincolns. This is the first import, And I'm extremely pleased. Very quiet, comfortable, and smooth for an suv. Other than regular maintenance, There has been NO issues! NONE, NADA, ZIP, ZILCH !

Cons

For an suv, it's on the smaller side, not a ton of cargo capacity. Gas mileage could be better, but it is full time AWD.

All In All, I Wouldn't Hesitate To Buy Another One, Tho They Are Kinda Pricey. — Very nice vehicle, tho on the high end, especially being the Coach Edition. Comfortable on long drives, very smooth on the highway, and extremely quiet for an SUV. The sound system is incredible! Excellent acceleration, and braking is more than adequate.

Pros

Of all the cars we have had and driven, this SUV drives like a luxury car, not a SUV. Landrovers are rough, other cars drive rough, this is a very smooth riding car.

Cons

You will get spoiled with how much it is like a good riding car, if you ever get a different type SUV.

Love It. — This car has excellent acceleration. It drives like a dream. It is wonderful on long trips, comfortable front seat and back seat as well. Great on gas in town and highway miles. Has huge back cargo area to throw kids surf boards and soccer balls.

Solid, Worth The Price — Great car. Kind of a chick car though. Performance is good all though the ride is not smooth. You feel all gear shifts and the brake is really touchy. This car is not the sporty car that's fun to drive. It simply gets the job done. It has tons of cargo room. Pretty much the perfect SUV.
