Owners Reviews/Reflections

Thought I'd open a thread here for sharing ownership experiences. . . Whatever thoughts pro/con you care to share. Be helpful, maybe, to note your model specifics, mileage, & date rec'd.

I think this is a good thread, it's nice to hear what people think once they learn where all the buttons are and get in sync with the performance and handling.

2.0L FWD /19"wh-Cont tires / 1030mi // rec'd 07/09/14 [Tux-Ebony/reserve-tech-wh]

Strangely, Lincoln hasn't requested my doing a video review along, maybe, Big Sur, nor did they ask me to race the MKC in competition . . Go figure!! .

Do know, it's sleek, it's comfy, it "plays nice" with my iPhone, & it's a kick to drive!
Seat AC works well & general car cool down is very fast . . a deal-breaker for me.
Ride not silent, but very quiet . . low volume audiobooks @ highway speeds, no problem.
Bluetooth is awesome! Initially, had problem switching back to Bluetooth from Sirius, but, after repairing 2x's, no problem. SYNC system fine, in general, except for annoying volume discrepancy in modes.
USB used only once, but worked quite well indexing a 64gb iPhone in, maybe, 2mins. Did not require re-indexing when reconnected after 30min break.
Navigation better than expected once I discovered the Sync Destinations app.
Steering wheel controls, fine; voice ctrl & cruise ctrls took couple days to familiarize.
Technology pkg much more useful than expected.
Love the kick ctrl liftgate, expanded moonroof, auto-folding mirrors, shelf in glovebox. Initially, didn't like cup holders as too small for sports koozie . . .but insulated bottle fits fine & with koozie on top keeps ice even better.
Quick acceleration for passing . . cornering, OK. Find have to take one exit ramp slower . . might be transitioning from small sedan to SUV. Trying Sports Mode, next.
Gas for the first 1,000 was 24.7MPG . . Like the capless system.

Some things, initially, thought not working (welcome mat, auto-folding mirrors, kick liftgate) are auto disabled under certain conditions or do not activate unless other conditions met. Also, was very concerned when 2fobs wouldn't show the keyless code, but that was solved when away from the garage where there's an apparent conflict with the garage door opener.

So . . . In case you missed it, I kinda like my new car . You guys like yours?

Great post. Makes me want to get our MKC even more. Do you recall the build date and how long it took to ship after it was built?

What are the last 8 digits of your vehicle's VIN, and when were you told that it was produced? Is it to go by rail or convoy...that info is on the factory sticker?

FUJ08786 and the build date on the window sticker shows 120140718, so it was produced on 18 July. It shows rail for method of transportation. The last information I have is that it is waiting shipment.

I will be super peeved if my vehicle takes almost 3 weeks to ship?
Not acceptable!

Thx!! Appreciate the feedback!
Mine was built mid May & didn't ship until mid July. It was a dealer's order & not sure what the intervening factors were back then. Hope you'll be enjoying yours soon!

Sorry, correction . . shipping was mid June rather than July.

I love mine so far. The only thing I have noticed is that I do have to remove the cargo cover to fit most larger items in the back. No issues or problems with anything.
