Bought MKC in November and have a little over 4,000 miles on it (most miles from Indiana to Florida on vacation). Wife left work this evening with temps around 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Not far from work low tire light warning on, battery light on and no power steering. She could hardly drive it without the power steering. Got car pulled into gas station. When I arrived I started the car and could hear a whining noise from engine compartment. Opened hood and whining noise coming from alternator. Called Lincoln 800# and they dispatched a wrecker to haul it to the dealership. I am very disappointed in having a problem this early on with our car.
