Gorgeous — tHIS IS A GREAT CAR! I WOULD RECOMEND IT TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE! It handles great It's beautiful! It's from Ford Motor Co. You should look into buying this car! It's much classier than the Ford Edge. It has great fuel useage, and it's AWD!

My Mkx — My personal favorite feature on this vehicle is the automatic opening and closing back hatch. Might seem strange but with my broken wrist it was a god send! I love the color, White Chocolate with cream leather interior, the HUGE sunroof and it's overall comfort. i was leary buying an American made vehicle at first but don't regret it at all. Ok...so the gas milage isn't the greatest but at least I can use regular fuel and not premium.

Great Mid Sized Suv. — Excellant ride. Great creature comforts. Love the Panoramic Vista Roof. Gas mileage is not the best (16/24 per EPA) but about 50% better than our Tahoe Z71 4WD. Lots of room and comfort. Overall great vehicle for a family of 4-5.

Its a full luxury ride, not some entry level bs.

Cons

stock fuel economy sucks, but can be tuned to be better

My First Lincoln Before I Turn 30.. Why Not? — It's a Lincoln with a Duratec35 powerplant. I've owned the 2.5 v6 Duratec in a Contour, as well as a 3.0 in a Contour and a 2005 Escape. I love these engines, hi-redline and full of torque. Fortunately Steeda has some parts I can buy like a TB spacer, CAI, and an x3 tuner ($800 for all 3) they add over 35 WHP.. not bad.

One Of My Favourites For Comfort And Versatility — After driving a first generation Nissan Murano, I was really hoping to acquire another one - however the next gen Murano was not yet available so I test drove the Ford Edge and really liked it. I then looked at the Lincoln, because I preferred the "look" of it and got mine in late 2008 - and have not regretted my decision at all. It is a very comfortable and roomy vehicle with excellent performance (for a CUV) from the 265 HP V6. The heated, and cooled seats, provide good support, although a little more lateral support would be nice. In almost 63000 km of driving I have had NO problems with this vehicle and have come to really enjoy all the amenities such as the Sirius radio, the navigation system and the panoramic roof. I would highly recommend this vehicle and, in fact, the next generation looks even better (for 2011) My one and only quibble about the MKX is the inability to select gears on the six speed automatic.

Awesome Luxury, Low Maintainance. — I like this car mostly for how it handles and how it looks. It has been very easy on maintenance. This car is very luxurious and comfortable. This car has made my family feel very safe, yet I enjoy driving it.

Great Luxury Suv With Excellent Handling — I sits up high but is not too large and gets around in traffic easily. Has 20+ miles per gallon on the road and has all of the luxuries you would expect in a Lincoln. Leather seats, navigation system, and back up sensor work great.

Pros

Easy for me to get into with a left leg that does not bend.  Right height for easy entry with my bad Right knee.

Hated to change from driving Porsche 911 daily but found this vehicle to be sporty, fun and I am delighted with it.  Never regretted the purchase a moment.

Cons

driver seat awkward for my tiny wife.  So I get to drive, Yeah!

Family Sporty Suv. — Fun, eager performer, great quiet comfort and luxury level. Great little truck when needed. Super for long trips. Perfect handling even at 95 MPH! I would buy another if this one gets killed. Passengers rave over comfortable rear seats which recline nicely.
