  1. Lincoln makes mudflaps for the 2016 MKX. No drilling is needed and the existing plastic fasteners are used. I thought they might help keep the dirt from accumulating so much on my MKX. The Allure Blue is a beautiful color, but I find it shows the dirt. http://accessories.lincoln.com/exterior/splash-guards/kit-mudflap-11301.html http://accessories.lincoln.com/exterior/splash-guards/kit-mudflap-11302.html I wrote down the model number and found them for 20% off on Ebay. Lincoln wanted $20 a wheel to install the mudflaps. I saw from the instructions that they install with a single tool to extract the existing plastic fasteners. I had one of these tools that I used on my motorcycle panels, so I thought I would do the job myself. I'm happy to report the plastic fasteners pulled out and the wheels didn't have to be removed. Be aware that the rear mudflaps did require one screw each on the bottom, which is already on the car. Each mudflap installed with five fasteners too and they used the existing plastic fasteners. They do seem to keep the sides cleaner and the rear gate is also kept cleaner. Overall, I'm quite happy with them and how easy they were to install. It took me between five and ten minutes per tire. Here is the link of the place where I ordered. 99.88 for all four mudflaps and free shipping. (without the 20% code from Ebay) http://www.ebay.com/itm/191818106707?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  2. Are you serious?? I didn't know mmoretti doesn't even own an MKX - then why does he/she post here? That is the most pathetic thing I've heard in a long time. Thanks for the "ignore" instructions.

    MKX Insurance Rates

    In rural Northeast PA, I pay $268 every six months. This gets me two levels above the required minimum - 250/500 with a $500 deductible. PA registration is $36 or $48 a year - don't recall

    MKX Body Side Molding? Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down?

    I guess I'm the minority on this subject, but I wanted to avoid the dents and dings at all costs. I installed a molding I found on Ebay. There were three types available - a black, a chrome and a painted one. I went with the chrome and after putting masking tape on the MKX, cleaning with an alcohol towelette and applying the primer (which was a small tube with built-in applicator) the molding appplied with a 3M sticky back. It compliments the existing molding on the rocker panel. $129.20 http://www.ebay.com/itm/For-LINCOLN-MKX-BODY-SIDE-Mouldings-Moldings-Trim-CHROMED-ABS-2016-2017-/351665796103?hash=item51e0ea3407 Attached is a pic

    Does anyone finds the park assist to be lousy?

    I have used it many times and it has worked 100% of the time. I use parallel parking 9 out of 10 times, but use perpendicular parking sometimes. I have never used the function to get out of a parking space, but I'll give that a try too.

    Wife's Happy w/ 2016 MKX But Wants Roof Rack Rails

    Jeff, Here is a FordParts site that sells the roof rails for the 2016 MKX.. There is a separate listing for right and left sides. Also, it breaks it down further to builds before and after 10-15-2015. Bad news is they are $501.47 for builds before 10-14 and $560.88 for builds after 10-15. Double that for both sides. Then add in labor - which looks like it would involve removing the interior roof to mount screws to hold down the rails. http://www.fordparts.com/Commerce/CatalogResults.aspx?y=2016&m=Lincoln&mo=MKX&initSearch=1&keyword=roof%20rack#

    I have Sync3 and have blue lakes. Is this a Sync limitation that you are encountering?

    Battery Issues?

    I have no idea what I did. I was playing around with the buttons this morning, but can't figure out what the cause of my battery problem was (or is).

    Battery Issues?

    I've had my MKX for nearly four months and the battery has worked trouble-free. I want to correct my previous assumption that the battery is bad. I originally reported that my battery went dead in the first week, but now I'm convinced it was due to operator error. In that first week, I was trying out and playing with all the buttons and switches. I think I left the inside light(s) on. I think the MKX was "chiming" when I exited the vehicle, but I didn't recongnize it. When I went to use the car several days later, it was dead. The monitor I had on the voltage was from the OBDII interface and that voltage is somewhat lower than the voltage taken at the battery terminals, which has been 14.2-14.4 volts.

    Would you purchase another MKX

    Would I purchase another one? Maybe. Although this is the most technologically advanced car I have ever owned, who knows what else will be available in 3-4 years. The Lincoln brand is not a deciding factor for me. I'm quite pleased with this vehicle and am glad I bought it. Would I recommend this to someone else? At this point in time, I would absolutely recommend this vehicle to someone else. In fact, I have and one of my friends got theirs from the same dealer.

    Battery Issues?

    During the first week of new ownership, my battery was dead too. I took it in to the Lincoln dealer and they said the battery checks out fine. I have been tracking the voltage twice a day since (as they requested) and it is a little low. I took it to my mechanic and he said the battery could be bad or one of the CPU's is putting a drain on it. He couldn't tell more without keeping it for a couple days. I imagine I will replace the battery if this happens again, as that is a quicker fix than trying to locate a source of drain.

    For Anyone Contemplating Lincoln Mudflaps

    While I had them on my Ebay watch list for some weeks, Ebay emailed me a new discount code every 2-3 weeks. The one I used was 20 off 100. If I get out today, I'll post pics.

    MKX order tracking

    Good question. I have no idea what it really is - what you said sounds about right.

    MKX order tracking

    The invoice date was on the second to last line of the window sticker. One of the other posts on this site explained that it was the invoice date. I'm not referring to the last line which is apparently the date the window sticker was first printed.

    Thanks for the info. I imagine I'll have to contact the dealer to help me out if I don't have any success.

    MKX order tracking

    I just discovered this forum today. I ordered my MKX on 12-15-2015 and ETIS was updated today with a build date of 08.02.2016 which is same as you. I see your window sticker says "Convoy" for "Method of Trans" too. Let me know if you find a way to track delivery.
  25. Hi everyone, I ordered an MKX on 12-15-2015 and the links posted on this site allowed me to locate the build date of 2-8-2016. Now I have to figure out how to track delivery. Looking forward to the forum. Mark
