I came up behind a very beautiful blue Continental. While waiting for the light to change I noticed that the "i" was missing in the Lincoln name on the rear deck. How did that happen?

The rear badges are just using a double-sided tape to stick on, and thus easy to remove with heat and a little jiggling. If the glue quality was poor enough, it could of simply fell off and the owner has yet to even notice.

Found that my "beautiful" 2017 Continental is NOT a quality car. (My two 1998 and one 2002 Continentals were better quality and better cars, period.)
1. Replaced passenger window up/down switch.
2. Driver door "groans" when open all the way. Replaced parts in door but still groans.
3. Driver seat (standard seat, not $1000+ seat) can't be adjusted comfortably. Front of seat too high and rear of seat two low. I'm sitting in a wedge. 👿😡 (seat, not seat back)
4. Steering wheel loses its up/down memory. Goes lower and lower after each use. If I don't set new memory every few days, I end up with the steering wheel down in my lap.
Quality??? Ha!!! Our other car, a 2015 Sonata Sport 2.0T Limited, no problems since day one. None. Nada. All at half the price of my 2017 Continental.
Been thinking of trading for a loaded 2018 MKZ if quality improved, or a 2018 Sonata 2.0T Sport, (only if I trust their new 8 Speed transmission).

I have found the fit/finish on Continentals to be superb. The very early ones has some panel gap issues but that was quickly corrected. I think the quality of materials and assembly is extremely good.
I have had two warranty-covered issues, however. When I first got the car, I discovered that the memory seats did not work properly. The steering wheel and mirrors responded but not the seat. That required a new power seat module.
A few weeks ago, the electronic instrument cluster developed a strange pixelation. That required a new cluster. I was very apprehensive about having them tear into the dash but actually it was a relatively easy job. The top half of the dash comes off and the cluster is a plug-in module.
I hate taking my car to the dealer but I must say that in each of the above cases, they did an excellent job. They made sure the seats, floor and steering wheel was wrapped in plastic to avoid smudges. They parked the car in the back of the lot where it would not be exposed to door dings. Each time, I received a Lincoln loaner. They even gave me a nice gift of wine glasses.
