    Battery short life?

    2017 3.0 AWD too. My battery was replaced this past June with about 19K. They ran some diagnostic test that took about an hour, and it indicated to replace it. With every car I have owned that came with Sirius, the sound quality was poor. You can go to their site and request to refresh the signal which may help a bit. I called them up and had them do it, but I think you can do it yourself too. Sounds like you got a nice one. I bought mine used too with about 15K, but it didn't have all the goodies - but it does have the drivers package that was a must. Good luck!
  2. I just checked mine, and it is Build 19205. Guess it must have updated via WiFi too!? I thought that it had to be running the whole time for an update?
  3. Of course, the same day I post that I haven't heard the noise, it was back yesterday afternoon.🙄
  4. I haven't heard mine now for quite a few days. They did replace the front passenger side door panel, and I found several of the push pins loose on the trunk panel cover. Not sure if that had anything to do with it or not. Might be more relate to our temps cooling way down.

    Bad Gas

    You might want to ask the service station to document their findings as much as possible to prove that the gas was bad - if that is indeed the case. It could be used as evidence if you end up having to go to small claims court, or if corporate asks for proof.
  6. Yep, I know that sound quite well. But, this is not what it is. The windows were all up. The biggest problem is finding a time when it is happening to get to the dealer right away so they can diagnose the issue.
  7. Hi All, I have an ongoing issue with a strange noise from the passenger side rear door. I have had it into the dealer a couple of times, but it comes and goes to where they have not been able to track it down. It seems to be temperature driven, I guess in the range of 70 to 80 degrees, and often can be heard with the engine running at around 3K RPM. We have also heard it quite a bit while doing interstate or highway driving - 70-75 MPH. Does anyone else have this issue/noise? I have checked around the inside of the door and the outside and have not found anything obvious. Thoughts?
  8. Agree that it is very annoying. Sport mode helps bit for me.

    Found out 2017 Premiere 18" Rim is bent.

    I had a crack in my rim that I ended up getting repaired. So far, no issues.

    Extended Warranty

    I recently had the Lincoln Protect added to my warranty. There are several mileage/years options. You might try calling the Lincoln concierge and see what they can offer. I attached the info sheet for reference. Good luck! 2019 Lincoln Protect - Premium Care Extended Warranty Brochure.pdf

    Weird Radio Issue

    Well, it was in to the dealer for more squeak/rattle issues, and they were finally able to replicate the radio issue. They are ordering a new radio!

    3.0T oil change ?

    Finally got around to doing my first oil change. It was really easy. I haven't ever seen a oil plug like this one. There is really no reason not to do this yourself it is so easy! The filter looked really dirty. Maybe they always look like this? Hopefully the dealer did actually change the oil as they said and not just reset the oil change gauge.

    Battery Drain?

    The battery on my '17 died this past Thursday. I was heading home from working out, got in the car, and all I got was a clicking sound and some noise from the rear speakers, which was odd. I tried several times to get it to start, and finally for some reason it turned over enough to start. I got home, left it running in the garage, and called the dealer. I drove right there and they did the 2 1/2 hour test and installed a new battery. The car only has a little over 18,000 miles. Now I am concerned that I have some sort of a battery drain issue??!!
  15. One more dumb question, when the temp is turned up to a point where the AC does not need to run, should the AC light stay on or turn off? Mine stays on. Thanks!
