I got my 2016 MKC Reserve with 10,000 miles and have had to replace the battery 5 times, about every six months. I’m really concerned about keeping it after the warranty expires, although I love the car. They always tell me the battery had a bad cell, but 5 times? I’m afraid where it will leave me next.

I am not sure why they replaced the batteries since you didn't mention the history leading to it being dead. It is not uncommon for 'battery drain' from his model and they had a firmware update to fix it. Ask if any TSB helps solve your issue.
I personally had the issue and I found this out because the car would sit for perhaps a week without being driven. They updated some firmware and replaced the battery. Not sure why they replace the battery but perhaps the car does damage to it. I might suggest you go to a different dealer if your not happy or call corporate if they are the only ones near you.

I have a 2017 with the same specs. Bought it off-lease w/ 18000 mi about 4 months ago for $29K. CPO so has the extra long warranty (6 yrs, 100,000 mi). I tried Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Lexus, VW, Jeep, etc. Only the Lexus was as quiet but their high pitched turn signal click drove my hearing aids crazy. Lexus also rode a bit harsh. The MKC does have some wind noise unless you open a window before closing the doors. Wish it did the window opening automatically like my Mercedes CLK Cabrio.


Just made three trip to NC from FL in the last month. Put 6000+ miles on it. Ran and handled well even in the mountains. Got a bit over 26 mpg. My butt did get sore (seems to be a problem for me with leather seats) so I had to sit on a small seat cushion.



Things I don't like about it:


1. Heat from sun roof makes the AC work harder. and lets the car get hot when it sits in the sun. You can feel the heat coming off it. Had it tinted but didn't help much. Since I don't use it perhaps I will have it painted the same color as the car.

2. Stupid plastic chrome trim on the dash will blind you with glare if the sun is at the wrong angle. (Had the front door windows tinted which helped a bit but there is still a lot of glare)

3. Key fob should have an off switch. Had the fob in my pocket and managed one morning to open all of the windows and another time to open the rear hatch. Lucky it didn't rain and I was in a low crime area. I have a little pouch now to shield the fob but an off switch would be so much better.

4. Navigation repeats the same warning to obey traffic laws and follow the indicated route over and over again. Drives me crazy. Also it doesn't even allow the passenger to set the destination when you are moving. Its routes are not always the best and it doesn't seem to know about new roads. (Had it updated when we bought it). Going to be taking my old TomTom with me in the future.
