    Epic fail

    I went to the local Lincoln dealer this week and while waiting for my car, I walked thru the car lot. He had 2 MKT's sitting there. Both had been marked down $8000 from the sticker. What was more telling, both had state inspection stickers 2/12. They have been sitting on the lot for 8...

    Is Lincoln Still A "Premium" Luxury Division?

    Sold my LS- Bought an MKX

    How do you like the MKX? I almost bought a used one yesterday but decided to wait a little while longer and pay off some bills. I am planning on keeping the LS and let that be my vehicle for a while.

    MKZ Nav system voted best system by JD Power & Associates

    I believe you have missed my point, sir. Let me reiterate. In my opinion, J.D. Powers is not a valid survey tool. It is mostly used by companies to hype a very select set of criteria which is used in marketing. " Initial Quality" is not as important as long term quality. Which is not...
