LOL Even my wife tries to tune into it....within 30 min she's like....why does it fade in and out! lol...then we choose FM and it's golden!
I listen to my own music anyways....and that offers no issues, not buying into this crappy tech,they want my business they need to sort their ***t out!
The components of the antenna that Sirius uses are different from the AM/FM antenna. I think the seriousness of the Sirius issue really depended on where you lived. I did not have any cutouts driving around my town/county or even up in the mountains - and did not even know there was a problem. When I drove down to Atlanta (25 miles away), I discovered I had a cutout for about 1/4 mile on I285. Happened in the same quarter mile stretch every time I drove it - but only on west-bound, not on east-bound of the same highway. Clear open sky, no visible cell towers or other potential interference in sight. It was weird. It did happen more often on a 3000 mile driving vacation. Typically in more urban areas.

I had mine fixed in case it became a larger issue later on - and to keep maintenance up to date.

Crazy....so my Mustang GT also runs Sirius, basically the same company I've been with them since 2011, no cut outs, no issues... nothing...possibly the antenna in the MKC needs to be replaced...I'll have it done sooner or latter, if nothing else but to keep things maintained.
In the MKC Sirius cuts out....sometimes often, or days apart...never in the same location either.
I might have it done this spring, I don't want to be up here without a 4 x 4 during the winter.
It can't be the Sirius transmission tho in my case, because the cars are feet apart yet the reception in the Mustang is suburb day in day out....crazy.
The Sirius I subscribe to is based in Canada, wonder if it's different programming from the one in the States.

I have lost sleep since buying mine. On the drive home after they had filled the gas tank every time we stop, take off or back up the gas sloshes and the vehicle bumps. It lungs forward at an abrupt stop. Now issues with losing all power and the dash goes blank. I have owned it two months and it has been in the shop 6 time this week. I hate I bought this MKC and lincoln has denied us a buy back even with our states lemon law. I have made it my mission to educate as many people as I can. I have had my gas tank replaced already and it's worse. I hope you have better luck then I am.

I think he said he has a 2015, can't figure out. Good for the 2016 owners.

Rstubb is your a 2015 or 2016? You mention you only had it two months but post about a 2015 in another post.

Unfortunately us 2015 owners took the hit so Lincoln could do 2016 better for you guys....too bad they are leaving some of those customers to suffer with their cars.

Rstubblefield,
I may be the earliest "early adopter" of an MKC on this forum - purchased in mid-July of 2014 - so I can say I've been through all of the quirks this amazing SUV has experienced. As if that isn't enough, I've been the victim of 2 rear-end collisions, one ($15,000 damage) of which put me in the hospital. The MKC took the hits remarkably and repaired nicely. I have just under 14,000 miles driven and still look forward to driving my white MKC daily. I might add that I have been a very steadfast (tough?) owner that diplomatically challenges my dealership to service my vehicle properly. I discovered early in my ownership that my local Ford dealership seems to LOVE to show me they are every bit as good as a Lincoln dealership. I disagree. They are better! You might try a Ford dealership. They have kept me very happy (I used them to repair my rear-end collision damage too!). The car is a good one. I get 22/23mpg consistently - and it still looks current and is a hoot to drive in - especially in "sport" mode! Far more people are happy with the MKC than aren't. You deserve to be happy too! If possible, I'd highly suggest using a different dealership, preferably Ford! They definitely made a difference in my attitude! I do wish you well on your vehicle!

Can't speak for some of the other issues mentioned above ("lunging", dash going blank, etc.), bit I've heard gas sloshing in the tank occasionally with almost every vehicle I've ever owned. Never was a problem - was just a variable of how much was in there and how the car was moving at the time.
