Do Not Miss This One! by The Raminator, Palm Springs on 06/19/2012. Trim: 2013 Lincoln MKT 3.5L with EcoBoost AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I have combed the professional reviews of the MKT - both before and after buying it, and find that I get irritated by the niggling comments made by the reviewers. I have driven BMW 5 series, Lexus RX series, Jeep Grand Cherokees and a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. What comes closest to the MKT is either the Porsche or the BMW sportwagon. The sheer joy of driving in either is equalled if not exceeded by the driving experience of the MKT. It is a big car, there is no doubt about that, but it handles like a BMW and accelerates like a Porsche or a BMW. It is a sheer delight to drive. The technology and the Sync system work as advertised. I think this car is at the top of the list.
Cons: gas mileage and the fact that if you like to accelerate at all you can quickly be in red light territory
Overall review: I think this is a great car if you're in the market for a BIG hauler. I know it isn't for everyone, but I also think it is way underrated, and in the large crossover segment of the market, for sheer fun to drive, as well as luxury and features is has been sorely underrated. This is a great car.

"Great Luxury Car" by An MSN Autos Consumer on 06/14/2012. Trim: 2013 Lincoln MKT 3.5L with EcoBoost AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: EXTREMELY quiet at all speeds, outstanding ride. Excellent engine with the EcoBoost engine. The engine is eager at all speeds. Love the sparkly black paint; it looks very classy.
Cons: Several fit and finish issues upon delivery. Pieces not lined up, a spot of rust on the roof, inoperable ambient lighting in the cupholders, misaligned steering wheel pad. Car is less than a week old. Will all be fixed at the first servicing.
Overall review: Except for some inital quality issues, I absolutely love this car. Comfortable, super quiet, very smooth ride. I look forward to driving it for many years.

Fun to Drive by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/27/2012. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: From day one through 25,000+ miles it has been trouble free. On top of that the service has been outstanding. One example, the Arizona heat got my battery, they replaced it immediately. When I bring the car in it comes back spotless. The ride is great as is the acceleration.
Cons: It's a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
Overall review: Excellent car with great service.

MKT Positives by Bob on 08/21/2012. Trim: 2013 Lincoln MKT 3.5L with EcoBoost AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: MKT with EcoBoost V6 - Great handling, tons of room, great acceleration +++; light use of gas peddle in town @ 12.5+- mpg, cross country, flat ground moderate speed - 23+- mpg. Having fun driving this one, expect mpg to drop. Traded from Jaguar XJ Super V8 whick got 16-18 in flat town areas and 23-25 highway. Love MKT overall but miss better mpg with performance vehicle.
Cons: Can't enjoy performance without major suffering of mpg.
Overall review: Still a +++ for me
