Feeling/hearing this thud

Finally my wife also heard it.

While driving from a dead stop and it could be at any speed up to 40 mph, I'm hearing this thud right behind me and I can feel it in the seat. I checked everything in the cabin and nothing is loose.

Only happens once in a while and I'm trying to determine if it happens when the mkc has been sitting a while.

It's almost like someone left a bowling ball in the trunk and its slamming against the trunk lid but it's right behind me.

We have an appointment with Lincoln on Sept 4th but wondering if it could be the transmission.

Thoughts?

Sounds like a tranny issue, and may simply require a software update. I had this happen on an '08 Sport Trac (when new). When slowing down/stopping, there would be an extra "push" from behind. It was the transmission, and the simply updated the software.

Sounds like my drive shaft (Ford Explorer) which needed to be greased.

You neglected to note what drive train you have.

Is it a 2.0, 2.3, AWD?

Right.

Makes sense I think to have dealer check that rear drive for something slipping or loose. I rented an Escape AWD the other day and heard a clunk similar to what you describe also coming from the rear. Most of the time it was when backing up slowly while turning, but always low speed.
Since it was not mine of course I don't have a definitive diagnosis for you.

Does not sound like anything to keep you off the road but should get addressed soon.

Transmission

2015 MKC 2.3 AWD. Started off as clunking and hard shifting, now at 48k miles transmission is done! I'm lucky to have a warrantee. I have only owned this vehicle 4 months and it's been in the shop 4 times now.

Sorry to hear that. Mine is going in tomorrow, but in my case, no hard shifting, just this thud (43,000 miles) and should be under the CPO warranty.

Took the service tech out for a ride today and he heard the noise, but wasn't to confident that they can locate and fix.

Hopefully I'll know within a day or 2. If by chance they can't fix for whatever reason...bye bye MKC,

Sort of an update.

Lincoln claims that the thud is the transfer case caused by different tires on the front/rear.

About 6 weeks go we changed the fronts and not the backs as they were still good. The thud noise started a few weeks ago, but has been happening more now.

Not sure if they're yanking my chain, but they said before they will consider anything else, I will first need to get new
tires for the rear. Ended up at a local tire shop who has heard about this with Suburu AWD's but not Lincoln.

So I ended up having the local tire shop order me 2 of the same tires they installed in July and should have them on in a few days.

Hope this helps, otherwise, the Mrs. will be turning into Godzilla when we bring the the MKC back to Lincoln.

Stay turned.
