    Small Update Mod

    WOW, that is pretty low for the dealer to do something like that. The upgrade looks great. Good luck getting the dealer to fess up and make it right.

    Fixing small scratches in plastic door trim around windows

    I just used Plastix on all the black plastic pieces last week and it made quite an improvement.

    Rim Corrosion

    Never heard of pothole mitigation. 🤨

    Rim Corrosion

    Tire was replaced this week. They gave me a 25% credit, so it ended up costing $198 out the door. I think I may have a slight leak in the drivers side rear that I am keeping an eye on. I suppose it could be cracked or bent too since it is on the same side as the cracked one that was repaired. :-(

    Rim Corrosion

    It is basically a bulge in the sidewall where it has probably been weakened from hitting some of the big potholes around here. I'm hoping that the rim was not bent also.
  7. So, now I have another odd electronics issue. Sometimes when I start the car, the radio is on the same station as when I shut it off, but the "button" lights up a different station. Any thoughts on this?

    Rim Corrosion

    The rim was repaired today. It was also bent a bit so they straightened that out as well. Total cost was $140. Hopefully this will be then end of that problem. I was asking them about another rim with a small bit of road rash, and the guy noticed that the tire had a "bruise" on the sidewall. Now I have to shell out more $$ for a new tire 😞

    Sync Freezing Up

    I had it in last week and they replaced the APIM and the FPIM. It has not froze up since, and my phone is not connecting/disconnecting all the time now. I am hoping that this solved the problem. Sadly, now the first little door on the console is out of alignment, I supposed because they had to remove it.

    Rim Corrosion

    Well, after checking around a bit, it looks like these rims are pretty hard to come by. The ones that are out there are already reconditioned, so who knows what kind of damage they may have had. I decided to take it in and see if it can be repaired. I have an appointment next Wednesday. They said that a repair cost starts at $140. it is on the back side of the rim, so I am not too worried about how it will look. I am more concerned about how long the weld will last.

    Rim Corrosion

    Thanks for the links! There is a place in town that does rim repair/welding. They have good reviews, although there are only 5. They said it would run around $150 to repair it. The crack is on the inside, so there would be nothing cosmetic. Has anyone had a repair done like this? Thoughts???

    Rim Corrosion

    Well, I got the car back from the dealer yesterday. They had it for two days to replace the APIM, and then had to order another part (FCIM)at the last minute. The first day they called to say that they could not find any leak. I told him again that I know there is a leak because I am adding about 5 LBS every 3 or 4 days. When I picked it up he had bad news. The rim has a crack, and he showed me a video of it bubbling when they sprayed soapy water on it. They can have the new rim installed in a couple of days - total cost - $1,037.38! I about passed out. I asked if he could help me out on the price and he is looking into it. He also mentioned the possibility of finding a used one. I am also going back to the dealer that sold it to me the end of last November to see if he will help out. It has been leaking since I got it, but with all the big pothole problems around here I am not sure he will go for it. I am going to also check around myself for a used rim.

    Rim Corrosion

    Thanks for the thoughts! I actually had two rims replaced on my 2017 MKC under warranty, so I know my dealer is willing to work with me. I can see no damage at all on the rim - no road rash or anything. And, the drivers rear wheel is also loosing air, but not as fast or as much as the front. I am not sure why Discount Tire replaced the valve stem. Maybe it was just a precaution and easy to do since they dis-mounted the tire. I am not sure how they cleaned the corrosion or what they did to seal it back up. Good idea to check with Lincoln concierge if the dealer balks. I will let you know how it works out.

    Rim Corrosion

    I have a 2017 with the handling package and thus the nice rims. I bought the car used with a little over 15K miles. I have one tire that is loosing up to 10 lbs per week. I went to Discount Tire and they said that there was corrosion on the rim causing the leak. The tire was fine. So, they said they cleaned off the corrosion and put on a new valve stem. Well, it is still leaking. I have to take it into the dealer next week to have the APIM replaced and am having them take a look. Is anyone else having this issue? Any thought as to whether or not it would be covered by warranty - or maybe a partial coverage?

    Headlight Error

    The steering wheel memory issue and the headlight error were supposedly fixed with a reset/update. APIM is on order.
