  1. I purposely told the dealer not to include mine, I really liked the way the roof line slopes back without them installed and it makes the X look lower to the ground to my eye.. -chris

    21" Tire Options

    Pirelli Scorpion Zero all season plus is avail from tirerack, prob is you will get less out of those than the oem but they will be great for the 1st 10k mi... My oems have 33k on them and agree, noisy as heck.. Been through this drill with 3 mkx's and 2 navigators with Pirelli's, always try for the Michelin's 2nd set.

    2019 Lincoln Nautilus

    Love the new rearview mirror ; ; ; love the darkend tail light array, the nose I personally think Lincoln is making a huge mistake making all the vehicles the same. Not a fan of the moving fan blade style wheels the direction the entire line is showing... The new cluster will prob be like the '18 Nav which will be sweet.

    This will be costly...

    Man sorry to hear, that suuuuuucks. If it were mine I would get the best touch up for the paint nicks and wet send afterwards... Since the paint is so new it can be done and never even be noticed afterwards since the nicks are quite small... -chris

    Guys, I have to check the sticker when I get it back but I got it Sept '15.. Always hate getting redesigns right away but my but my '13 MKX lease was up and I didn't want a leftover same model again for a 3rd time..

    Lincoln Loaner reviews

    This is at least the 10th time my '16 MKX has been at the dealer over the last 2 yrs, this time back for a crunching/creaking noise coming from the left front strut they replaced about 2k mi ago for an adaptive suspension error on the dash.. Have a '17 MKX FWD 3.7 stripper model again. Not a single option on the sticker in the glovebox, 39.5k. Going from a maxed out Reserve 2.7 AWD its a real downer... The leatherette blows. The only thing I like is the Sync 3 AA support, can totally use that over the fac navi. -chris
  8. Have not.. good luck, hope its a minor fix.. -chris
  9. Love the Platinum, prob my next vehicle. Just as nice as the Lincoln inside... -chris
  10. One other little thing that annoys me is that you could pause the trip counters on the previous gen, I used to use that all the time when filling up that tank... -chris
  11. One of the the things I miss from my 2011 and 2013 was the ability to change the fan speed and temperature from the steering wheel, bring that back pls... -chris
  12. Had this happen once around 10 or 12K, has to be a screw up in the computer for the active noise cancellation or the engine/exhaust note. Radio was off at the time, shut it down and restarted, nothing since.. -chris

    Have you noticed exhaust fumes in car?

    With all the other issues, this is one that I have not had... -chris
