Nicest Car I've Owned So Far

Sometimes you just have to strike while the iron's hot! The low to no interest rates were what closed the difference between a wish & a must have. The engine is unbelivably smooth and strong and the ride is the closest thing I've ever been in that doesn't leave the ground. Handling - excelent, braking excelent etc. It makes you realize how close we are to having cars that will actually drive themselves. Interior aminities. . . well what can I say, it's an American Made vehicle that has and does everything the others wished they could, wanted to but couldn't. This car is quality through & through.

Leased a 2008 for my husband's car and loved it so much, we paid the residual to keep and then traded in my Mazda for a 2011 model for me. Smooth ride, feels like sitting in the lap of luxury. Synch is great and navigation has all the bells and whistles, which are very user friendly. By far the nicest car I have ever owned. Had for nearly a year now, and still no negatives to report. Rattles and road noise are my pet peeves and so far, none to report. Still enjoying every mile.

Great Ride

by from Northern Michigan on February 1, 2013

A much better ride and no wind noise compared to the Mercedes I traded in. I am now sold on Lincoln AND it's made in the good old USA

I have had luxury cars in the past (Jaguar, Corvette etc..) but I have to say I just bought a pre owned Lincoln MKS and it blows the other brands away. The quality is amazing, the plus leather seats, voice controlled nav, heated and cooled seats, REAL wood trim, I mean I think I will always buy a Lincoln from now on, this is the nicest car I have ever owned, I'm not one to write reviews but I had to tell others what a great car this is!

Impressive handling and style.

This is my fourth Lincoln and I like it the best. Still have a Towncar that is great. Reminds me of the characteristics of the Mark VII. I wasn’t looking for this model but after driving one I wanted it. Love the transmission and handling. It has lots of tech goodies also.

Great exterior design! Love the color (gold leaf metallic). Lots of head and leg room inside. Seats not the most comfortable and the headrests are tilted too far forward (no adjustment). Nice size trunk but opening too small. Hard to get items in the trunk.

Amazing car. Performance is amazing for the money. I love using the paddle shifters. I've heard negative reviews about them, but they are fun to use and fast in response (owned a 2006 Grand Prix GXP and there was gear change lag). It's pretty easy to pass cars with this car. The car drivers like a dream. Hear little to no road noise. You don't feel bumps in the road, so the suspension is amazing. Also, it handles well on the corners. Having AWD with 19 inch tires helps for safe driving in horrific Western NY snow conditions. I have yet to slip or spin out in a snow storm (have cruised by many others off the road with this car in storms). MPG: Rated at 25 highway... Crusing at 55 I've gotten 31 MPG before. Combined is rated at 20 MPG, and driving it enthusiastically I average 22 mpg, when i have driven for economy I have gotten 23 MPG combined. One way to work for me is 40 miles highway and city... Also, if you're good with paddle shifters you can improve MPG if you know how to change the gears for economy. Many reviews state this car lags in luxury, and I fully disagree. The car warns you of a crash, and you can set how far away you want the car to warn. The adaptive cruise control is great. It slows down and speeds up amazingly. Cooled seats are nice during the Summer. Navigation works well, and can be used though voice. You can even listen to pandora from your phone on the amazing 19 speaker sound system. love the dual panel moon roof. lastly, there are so many snesors on this car, it is near impossible to hit something backing up without hearing them, and when parking or driving slowly forward it warns you if you're near another car or object. Comfort: I've read complaints about the front not being comfortable. i don't see this I'm 5 feet 11 and fiance is 6 feet 4. We are perfectly comfortable in the car. Both seats have all power adjustments., and driver has memory. Back seats have lots of space with heated seats, and a sun shade. The trunk is huge, but the opening is odd, so it can be frustrating to get stuff out. There is a cool button on the trunk to open. As long as you have your key it will sense it. This is the same with unlocking the doors, no need to get key out, for it will be sensed. Then get in with push button start. However, remote start is odd. It works well from far away, and with the rain sensing wipers on will wash snow off your windshield while it heats up. The odd thing is once you open the door the engine shuts off. Reliability... I've had to have the heat pads on heated seats changed, and I hear this happens often. Also, the heat shield bushing broke (Ford needs to use better bushings 3 of 4 2011 and newwer cars of theirs I've owned bushings have broken). This is a huge problem with the 3.5 litter ecoboost (friends f-150 had the same issue, reviews on line, and mechanic said so). My Ford mechanic offered bolting it on with a screw, which makes more sense than paying for a new one (not covered under warranty) to have a new buching break. However, he complained it will be a pain during oil changes. If I buy a luxury car again in the future it will be a Lincoln. Beautiful luxury car, with fun features, and performance galore. Also, when compared price wise against competitors Lincoln is generally priced lower.

2011 MKS Rocks

Bought my 2011 MKS two months ago. I NEVER saw myself in a Lincoln -- I've owned Lexus for 10 years -- but the saleswoman I was dealing with insisted I give it a test drive. After that 20 minute ride, all I could say was "Wow!" The MKS outdoes the Lexus in every parameter. Comfort, power, handling, quietness, ride, acceleration, brakes -- the MKS is superior in every way. Fit and finish are excellent. The paint is a mile deep, and the leather is gorgeous. The air conditioned seats, automatic brights, proximity warning "radar", headlights that move with the steering wheel, stereo system -- all are superior to the Lexus we have owned and loved. The ONLY complaint I have with the car -- and it's a small nit -- is that the dashboard has developed a single squeak that manifests itself on rough roads. Otherwise, this vehicle has been flawless. My wife and I LOVE this car.
