The Lincoln MKX is an absolute dream to drive and is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever ridden in.

I love my Lincoln MKX! It rides so well. The seats are luxurious and so comfortable. It has great take off power and the control is fantastic. I can get in and out of a parking space with no problem. I love the blind spot light on my mirrors and the beep when I have an object coming up beside me when parked or backing out of a parking space. I also love that the back hatch is button powered and the back seats are controlled by buttons. I highly recommend the MKX.

This car is very reliable. Good in the snow. I have not had any problems except with the shifter inside the transmission but it was taken care of through warranty. The dealership gave me a loaner while car was getting fixed. My children feel the back seat is very roomy.

I haven't had any major problems. I enjoy the comfort and smoothness of the ride. Has a lot of up to date features. Especially like the heated seats and steering wheel as well as being in the back seats. The only downside is getting use to the different blind spots.

Air Bags > Frontal > Driver Side Inflator Module Feb 26, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 26, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V123000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles and 2017 Lincoln Continental vehicles. In the event of a crash, the driver's frontal air bag may not fully inflate or the air bag cushion may detach from the air bag module. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Consequence:
During deployment, if the air bag does not fully inflate or the cushion detaches, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag module, free of charge. The recall began June 16, 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17C02.
