How many miles should I expect a 2010-2012 Lincoln MKT to last before it dies?

Asked by May 31, 2013 at 11:21 AM about the 2010 Lincoln MKT

Question type: General

I'm considering buying a 2010 or 2012 Lincoln MKT but I want to know how long I can
expect to keep it. I want a car that is going to be dependable for years. Is it a car that
typically "dies" at 100K, 200K, more? I have no idea and I'm wondering if I should buy
this car or go towards a truck like the F150 or Nissan Titan.

Dependable is all relative. As long as you take care of it and put some money into it when need be, it can last up to 300K miles before it needs major components replaced. Buying domestic vs Asian, truck or car has no real bearing anymore. They are all made out of metal, plastic and rubber.

Maintenance is your key to success...oil changes, tire rotations, filters, wipers, alignments & whatever else is described in your manual. My father has a Lincoln LS (not sure on year), but it has 135k miles on it and runs like a champ! We love our MKT!

Even with proper maintenance and proper care I can't say the same for mine. With 95,000 miles it's hae 3 turbos replaced (and it only has 2). Plus numerous other issues. I'll never buy a Lincoln MKT again, this thing has soured the Lincoln name for me. Left my son and I stranded during the hurricane even though it had been to Shumacher Lincoln just weeks prior.
