A Modern Day Long Distance Tourer
I cannot say enough of about the Lincoln MKT. I needed more size so I could drive youth here and there. It fills the bill so well. What is more, I just traded off a 2009 Cadillac xxx and my insurance went down by twenty dollars per month. It should be noted my Lincoln is the all wheel drive model with the EcoBoost engine. Tomorrow it will be one week that I have owned my car and I could not be more thrilled with my purchase. I would agree that the look is often love it or leave it, but I have always liked the styling. The styling treatment on the rear reminds me of Chris Craft boat. How can you top the chrome accents with the black metallic paint? My MKT has the six place seating. The driver's seat is the best seat, but it is also true luxury sitting in the second row heated and cooled captains' chairs. There is a even a refrigerator/freezer on the console that the divides the seats. My parents live five and half hours from the town that I work and live in and I cannot wait to make the trip to see them. I know it will be an easy drive. Call me a thrilled owner.
This is the last car I'm buying before I retire so I need something I feel comfortable and confident in. This car exceeds my expectations. The price was good and included a full 3 years of bumper -bumper warranty extension. This car was advetised as having every available option and I can't think of anything I could add to that. I wanted a car to fit an average driver and a very short driver and this will easily accommodate both. Performance is great. The mileage is not great but what I expected. The fit and finish are superb. I have a nav system fault I'm waiting to be cured by the dealer but otherwise I love this car. It's big and safe and holds a ton of stuff or 6 people comfortably.
I love a lincoln MKT.
I satisfied this car's comfort, reliability, fuel economy . I love a American car. Lincoln is my best choice. I will buy a mkt again next time. i love it. i have three his. they love it.
Overall - Nice!
Can be a little boggy in Drive, but there's always Sport mode. Other than that, zero complaints. Owned 4 Jeeps, Rav4, MKZ, and now the MKT. It is by far the best SUV I have driven. The exterior can be a deal breaker for some, and I was neutral on it at first, but it definitely grows on you. It sounds like they are going to stop making the MKT, which is disappointing.
This is Not a Town Car
This car is like a ford escape, yet its presented as Lincoln, nothing about this hideous looking car is Lincoln.
Fun to drive.
My experience with cars.com was a-1. I watched the site for the car I wanted and it finally showed up and I bought it. The dealer was great to work with. Great process.
Love this Lincoln!
Despite the negative reviews that I had read online, I decided to test drive the Lincoln MKT and form my own opinion, and boy am I glad that I did! I traded a 2011 Cadillac SRX Premium for my 2013 Lincoln MKT AWD Ecoboost w/Elite Package and I love, love, love this car. The interior is beautiful and classy with all the bells and whistles that you could ever want. Leg room is great, controls and touchscreen are easy to use when navigating through the many features, and I like the option to switch between Normal, Sport and Comfort modes. Power is amazing, sound healthy, shifts well and handles great. (I must have been a racecar driver in a previous life)...the blind spot monitor is great in city traffic as well as on the freeway. I get many compliments on this vehicle with most people saying they never even heard of the MKT! That's a bonus...not a lot of Lincoln MKT's around yet. Two have shown up in the parking garage since I've purchased mine. The only complaint I have is with the driver side arm rest on the door which has split at the seam. I was also disappointed that my model came with 19" wheels instead of 20" chrome...and a fixed glass roof instead of the powered moon roof. Obviously wasn't a deal breaker for me though. I have previously owned an SRX, Nissan Armada Platinum, Infinity QX56 and a Lincoln MKS. This MKT is by far the most value for my money. I have received more compliments and turned more heads on its' appearance than any other care I've owned and I truly enjoy driving this vehicle everyday. I haul three kids all over the countryside on a daily basis (and still have room for each to bring a friend), and still have room for groceries and shopping bags. I have 52k miles on it already and we have taken it on two vacations. I've had no problems or issues other than a trip to the dealership for a recall issue that was promptly corrected. Give Lincoln a try....you will NOT be sorry!
Still impressive after 2 years of ownership
I leased my 2012 MKT new in April 2012 - now has 34K miles on it and other than having to replace a tire - the car has only had to have the scheduled (free) Routine maintenance. It rides great, has all the options you can get on similar vehicles from other "high end" makers - I get asked yet "When did Lincoln start making that model. it's cool" so for the negative people that say it's "ugly" I say looks are subjective - I personally like that it's different and stands out in a crowd of "boxes" It's fast, handles great and rides great - Sync wasn't that hard to get used to, I think it's easier than the system in my German car. If more people would test drive this vehicle, they'd buy it over the higher priced alternatives out there. I'll be leasing another MKT when my lease is up.
New 2013 MKT
We hated to do it, but knew it was time to trade in our 2008 MKX; it had served us well, and was getting tired at almost 100,000 miles. We found a local dealer with a brand new 2013 MKT; it has the 4 bucket seats, and the third row, and all the other bells and whistles. Initially, the technology can seem overwhelming, but it becomes intuitive rapidly. The car rides incredibly well, is very quiet, and has one of the best pedal responses I have ever been acquainted with. 5 out of 5!
Cadillac owner tries Lincoln
Had Cadillac SRX and CTS wagon but need more room never owned a Lincoln, this car has room to spare. If you want 3 rows of seats(for grand children) has great comfort, very good power with turbo and AWD, gas mileage good for this large vehicle, towing rated, Sync system touchy and not intuitive, like the loading room with 3rd seat down and unbelieveable with all seats down, front and second row seats very comfortable, 3rd row comfortable but not allot of head room, tail gate does not have adjustable height so beware when opening in the garage. Handles very nicely and great for long drives.This is right up there with the Cadillacs
