Pros

Affordable, mid-priced luxury; distinctive design; efficient EcoBoost engine available


Model Highlights

Three variants of the LINCOLN MKS are available for 2011: the 3.7-liter V6 with front-wheel or all-wheel drive and the 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine with all-wheel drive only. The smaller engine produces 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, as compared to 273 hp and 270 ft-lbs of torque from the normally aspirated 3.7L. All models get a 6-speed automatic transmission that can be upgraded to use steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The LINCOLN MKS uses a MacPherson strut in the front and independent rear suspension for luxury-level ride comfort, plus 4-wheel disc brakes, ABS, tire-pressure monitoring, traction control, reverse sensing system and electronic stability control. A rearview camera and adaptive cruise control are available. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard, but nineteen and twenty inchers are available as options.

The interior is nicely appointed, with genuine wood trim throughout. Front seats are heated and cooled and adjustable 12 ways and include lumbar support--even the rear seats are heated. Microsoft's standard SYNC system offers turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic conditions. The standard 6-speaker stereo has an in-dash 6-disc changer and MP3 capability, plus Sirius satellite radio, but it can be upgraded to a 14-speaker system, which includes two subwoofers.

The EcoBoost option also adds exclusive luxury seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 20-inch chrome wheels and a slightly different grille, rear spoiler and rear fascia.

A host of high-tech safety features are available, including Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, a collision warning system which warns of obstacles while priming the brakes, dual-stage front airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, a post-crash alert system and Safety Canopy, which deploys side curtain airbags in the event of a side collision or rollover. Other high-tech features include Pull-Drift Compensation, which helps automatically adjust the steering when confronted with uneven road surfaces or high winds. Adaptive cruise control, adaptive HID headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and a rear-view camera system are also available.


Model News

For 2011, Lincoln's LINCOLN MKS continues mostly unchanged. The available voice-activated navigation system is now paired with HD Radio, and Ford's MyKey system is also now available. In addition, a new Pull-Drift Compensation system monitors steering input and helps to compensate by automatically adjusting for both high winds and uneven road surfaces.


Value Writeup

The LINCOLN MKS is a full-sized sedan and utilizes a platform shared with the Ford Taurus, with a very roomy interior and tons of technology that is new for Lincoln, such as keyless entry and adaptive cruise control, items usually found on much higher-priced luxury sedans. The EcoBoost engine improves both performance--by 75 hp--and fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.

Summary
Ford Moor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Ford Fusion vehicles without a 3.5L engine and Lincoln MKZ hybrid electric vehicles, 2011 Mercury Milan vehicles, 2011-2012 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with a 3.5L GTDI engine and 2013 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with any available engine. The affected vehicles have electric power steering assist systems that may shut down as a result of a steering motor sensor fault.

Consequence
If the vehicle experiences a loss of power steering assist, extra steering effort will be required at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will check the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC). If dealers find any loss of steering assist DTCs, the steering gear will be replaced, free of charge. If, no codes are found during the PSCM inspection, the PSCM software will be updated, free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on July 20, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S18.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 Ford Taurus vehicles manufactured December 1, 2009, to July 31, 2010, and 2011-2013 Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured June 1, 2011, to October 31, 2011. In the affected vehicles, the interior door handle return spring may unseat, resulting in interior door handle that does not return to the fully stowed position after actuation.

Consequence
If the interior door handle return spring is unseated, the door may unlatch in the event of a side impact crash, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect all four of the interior door handles and either repair or replace them, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 16, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S02.

The driver frontal air bag may improperly inflate during second-stage deployment in the event of a high speed crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Consequence
An improperly inflated air bag increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the driver's frontal air bag module, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on June 13, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C06.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.
