You'll Like The 2010 Lincoln MKS If...

If you like this new Lincoln's look, especially its heritage-based "double-wing" grille, there's not much to dislike about it. With an agreeable balance of performance, efficiency, room and value, and front- or available all-wheel-drive, it lacks only most rivals' rear-wheel drive and a prestigious import nameplate.

My trusty Lincoln mks. I enjoy all the automatic features regulated by sync.

Unfortunately, the Lincoln mks model is no longer manufactured. However, I have enjoyed mine since I purchased it new in February 2010. I like the n sync feature, which allows you to give commands to your vehicle to change the climate, give you navigation directions, play the radio or your recorded CDs. The car is very comfortable. It rides very smoothly with no outside sounds. The outside body of the car has the curb appeal package so it is quite attractive being that it is tuxedo black. I plan to keep my Lincoln at least until 2020. I have only 75,000 miles on it. My next car will probably be the Lincoln continental.

Had problems with my turbos and engine. Replace a new engine runs great. Car is very comfortable and spacious which is great for me because I am tall and there's still room in the back seat. Car is really fast, I have an Ecoboost engine. It is fully loaded has GPS, Bluetooth connection, heated and cool seats, panoramic sunroof, and back window sun screen.

I love the body of my vehicle as well as the interior. I enjoy the smooth ride. I like that it has four doors. I like the nsync program that allows me to tell the vehicle things to do such as phone a person, change the climate and navigate me to a location with which I am unfamiliar.
