    • Hello all, just purchased a 2016 mkx select with reserve options and was built registered and owned in Canada. Has almost all options of the reserve and was originally a lease vehicle. Looking forward to this forum as I have a 2002 Chevy Avalanche and have been part of that forum since 2006. Has great info as I'm sure this one will.
    • Just picked up a 2008 MKX Limited and I am enjoying it very much so. I downsized from a 2006 Cadillac Escalade that I had been working on for the better part of the last 2 years. Everything mechanical was done from all maintenance items to new transmission, diffs and all body work. The buyers offered me a deal I could not refuse so I sold it. I have always liked the look of this first gen MKX buy didn't really like all the chrome but when I saw the one I bought with the black grill, it made a big difference. Mechanically its a 9/10 with great dealer maintenance history. Body wise it is a 6/10. Definitely got a few parking lot dings and a small front fender scrape. The big issue is the front roof panel between the windshield and glass roof. It has rusted under the antenna and is letting in water. Body shop will fix that this Monday.  Outside of the body work that I will get done over the next few months, I plan on upgrading the stock navigation and fixing the lumbar support in the drivers seat as it seems like the bag is popped. The only other item I want to fix right away is the passenger headlight is letting in condensation and the projector bulb looks crooked in the housing. I see plenty of headlight assemblies but since I have the Limited, I cannot seem to find one with the etched Lincoln logo. I think It would drive me crazy if I did not replace it with the same one. I will scan through the pages here to see if I can find anything otherwise I will make a post on it. I was very active in my Cadillac forums and know the drill :). I look forward to learning and sharing on this forum.    Thanks   Ray
    • Hello.  I'm wondering if anyone has ever experienced a clicking in the steering on the front passenger side of the vehicle while turning at slow speeds and also while stationary in their 2013 mkx?    I have replaced both CV transaxles, both control arms, both sway bar links, both strut assemblies with KYB quick struts, both wheel bearings, and all of the brakes including calipers within the last year.  However, the clicking is still there.  Any suggestions?  Thank you in advance!
    • Thank you both…do y’all have a Repair Guide download recommendation, the one I found range from $130 to $15.  Like to have the real factory repair manual.  
    • I had Michelin’s that did this at 21-24k miles. Went back and was told that that's normal. The way they achieve a smooth and quiet tire is to use soft rubber on the outer tread layer. (Tires are constructed of several different layers of rubber, each with their own specific characteristics.    Anyway, after the soft layer it wears off, (>20k), it goes into a hard rubber layer to give tire a long life. But hard rubber is noisy and rides hard. Nothing you can do about this.    I'm running 20" Pirelli Scorpion's now. Nice and quiet. When they get noisy, I'll just replace them.   One brand I've used, a little noiser and a little rougher, are Bridgestone Duelers. Excellent longevity that doesn't change when they age. 
    • Professional photographers will use paste wax on chrome for car commercials to prevent glare. They just leave it dry & dull, and don't polish it.     You could try this and see if it helps (quick but temporary).
