Editor's Overview

The Lincoln MKT exemplifies the saying, "It's what's inside that counts." While the bulbous exterior of this big crossover SUV may not suit everyone's taste, the luxurious interior is hard to resist. With seating for up to seven, commendable power and high-tech safety features, the MKT is a luxurious way to haul passengers and their stuff.

It is very comfortable, drives nice. Do not like that it honks when I leave it running and close the door. I like a lot of the safety features that it has. I have had a few problems, but luckily I had coverage that covered the issues. I really liked that I was able to get a lifetime oil change when I purchased it. I do not like that the nearest Lincoln dealership is 3 hours away.

Had third row seat, great for larger families. All wheel drive is great in snow. Drives like a car. Leather interior is standard with a/c and heated seats. Lower ground clearance is a con. Ecoboost offers great power. Built in navigation and voice commands. Optional headrest DVD players and 120v plug.

Fuel System, Gasoline > Delivery > Fuel Pump Aug 24, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 24, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V621000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with 3.5L GTDI Ecoboost engines and 2013-2015 Ford Taurus Police Interceptor vehicles. A component within the fuel pump electric module (PEM) may overheat causing a loss of electrical power to the fuel pump.
Consequence:
A loss of power to the fuel pump will cause the engine to stall or prevent the vehicle from starting, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel PEM part number and replace the fuel PEM, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on December 1, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S31.

Electrical System Mar 23, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 23, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V172000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Lincoln MKT vehicles with a limousine or hearse preparation package, manufactured March 6, 2012, to March 10, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the vacuum pump relay may overheat due to an internal fault or contamination.
Consequence:
If the vacuum pump relay overheats, there is an increased risk of a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the vacuum pump relay with a new electro-mechanical relay, free of charge. The recall began on July 6, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S10.

Power Train > Axle Assembly > Axle Shaft Jul 1, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 1, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V393000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles manufactured September 2, 2010, to November 30, 2013; 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured August 25, 2011, to November 30, 2013; and 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured September 12, 2011, to November 30, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention circlip may not have been properly installed, and as a result, the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving and without prior warning.
Consequence:
If the halfshaft and linkshaft become disengaged while driving, power will no longer be transmitted to the wheels, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, if the parking brake is not applied before exiting the vehicle, the vehicle may roll away despite the transmission being placed in 'Park', increasing the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage, free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S10.
