You'll Like The 2011 Lincoln MKX If...

You may like the 2011 Lincoln MKX if you like to balance luxury and an impressive range of standard equipment with a reasonable price point. Even a standard MKX comes loaded with both convenience and safety features, like the MyLincoln Touch multimedia interface, or Lincoln's Personal Safety System, with dual-stage front airbags and front safety belt pretensioners, and the Safety Canopy System with rollover-sensing capability and side curtain airbags.

Comfortable and spacious! Also we took a 9000 mile road trip this year across country and our Lincoln got decent gas mileage and was so comfy!

It has an amazing ride and very comfortable seating both front and back seats. Very spacious as well. Love all the cargo space and the way you can create more car options space by lowering the back seats. The back up assistance is terrific now that I've learned how to use it. The side mirrors are hard to adjust. Steering and braking systems are good. Not that crazy about the heating and air conditioning systems. Hate the volume control bar. Overall I love my vehicle.

The mkx only has one problem that I have found on my 2011. The windshield stays fogged up. I don't know if it is a flaw in the model. We have tried everything. Even running the defrost it will fog up. Other then that one issue, I love the mkx. The driver assist is wonderful for long trips. I would by another Lincoln, maybe not the mkx.

Have had it seven years and never had a major mechanical problem. Comfortable, great looking, reliable, and has all the best features. Such feature include Bluetooth, navigation, bucket seats, anti lock brakes, sunroof, electric seats and windows, full sunroof, easy to maneuver and great in all weather.
