Hi, after having our brand new Lincoln MKC for only 1.5moths and 1,500 miles it wont start. It ended up towed to Lincoln Service Center. Anyone else have experienced this? :frown

And what did they find out ? I have 1,200 trouble free miles after 8 weeks.
Still don't know, it just happened today (Sunday).
When pushing the start button it sounds like its going to start, but that's it, wont start. At first we thought it could be fuel related since it was running on 10 miles to empty (although it seemed absurd to us it was worth trying), so we walked to the nearest gas station, put some extra gas but didn't work. It's worth to mention that no alarm went on or anything. We have no clue.
UPDATE: We went to the dealer this morning, they told us that there was a recall on the gas pump.
DEARBORN, Michigan —Ford is recalling 386 2014 Ford Focus compact cars and 2015 Lincoln MKC small crossovers to fix a problem that may lead to an engine stall without warning, the automaker told Edmunds.
One 2014 Ford Escape SUV is also included in the recall.
The recall is expected to begin this week, according to Kelli Felker, a Ford spokeswoman.
"In the affected vehicles, a crack may develop between the fuel pump filter body and the filter cap which may result in low fuel pressure," said Ford in a statement. "Low fuel pressure may cause malfunction indicator light illumination, extended crank, no start, loss of power or engine stall.
"An engine stall without warning may increase the risk of a crash."
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected 2014 Focus cars were built at the Michigan Assembly Plant from May 1, 2014 through May 24, 2014. The 2015 MKC crossovers were built at the Louisville Assembly Plant from June 4, 2014 through July 7, 2014. The single 2014 Escape was built at the Louisville Assembly Plant on June 6, 2014.
Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module. The recall is expected to begin this week. Owners can contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
No information about the recalls has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

hmm, that was a nasty one.

Hopefully there's not anymore things of this severity that spring up, but at least they caught it pretty quickly.

Recalls do happen and are not fun. More important, how did the dealer treat you? Did they set you up in a decent temporary vehicle?
such a small sample as well. Seems like post GM fiasco EVERYTHING gets recalled, where normally this situation would of been a simple warranty job, its now a full blown recall. I mean 386 Focus/MKC's even split right down the middle is not a substantial amount of vehicles...
