Rides better than a cadillac

I at first loved my Lincoln a couple weeks after I owned it the engine blew and ford had my car for so long the tires flat spotted and they thought it was fine for me To drive around like that Lincoln replaced the engine and it doesn’t run the same as when I test drove it I had to take it to Lincoln in Columbia to fix all the little things that followed after the engine replacement if I didn’t have all these problems I would’ve been in love with this car I love the look and I think it’s comfortable my mom says it rides better than her Cadillac so there you go


I love my Lincoln MKC. Very reliable SUV

I've owned my Lincoln for almost 3 years. My Lincoln has never failed me. My Lincoln moved us from Colorado to S.Carolina pulling a 5x8 cargo trailer. My Lincoln was a champ we were dodging hurricane weather so we hit flooded areas. I would definitely tell you the Lincoln MKC is a great all around SUV.


Worse experience ever

Known issue with coolant leaking into cylinder 2 causing car to misfire. Should have been a national recall in my opinion, but it was not. If car isn't still cover by power tran warranty, potentially have car with bad engine that needs to replace
