Hi from KS

Hi. New member here from the KC area. I just bought a new '15 Reserve Fwd in Ruby Red last week. We drove to Salina, KS (180 mi) to pick it up. It was a heck of a deal, and they gave me > KBB Excellent Trade-In value on my '14 Edge. I liked the Edge, it was just very basic in terms of options. I actually prefer the seats in the Edge. The MKC is loaded with everything: Tech package, THX, etc.

I really like the MKC thus far. I've added front 20% tint, paint protection film on top of rear bumper, eFe Pro Dry S open-ended filter, screen protector, and the Lincoln cargo (slush) mat.

It appears I'll eventually need the modem recall -- as I have that message in the app. The hands-free liftgate seems pretty finicky -- works about 60-70% of the time with a kick. Any tricks here?

My last Lincoln was a '10 MKZ AWD Ultimate. I think THX sounded better in that car because the main speakers were in the door instead of dash. Bass response was also better.

Welcome to the Forum!
I had the lift gate issue with my 2016 MKC.....sometimes it just would not work,and sometimes it did....took it in, they reprogrammed it and never seen another issue with it.....it's a GREAT feature when it works right....not too fast, not too slow with the foot and it works great!

Welcome to the forum! There are no special ricks to get the gate to open, I suggest you 'practice' at home until you get the feel for what it takes to be consistent...practice will make perfection.
