    One Less Lincoln Dealer

    Yes the email said they will still be able to provide service.

    One Less Lincoln Dealer

    My Lincoln dealer also sells Subaru, Mazda and Ford. I've been notified that they are giving up their Lincoln franchise. Oh well!

    Door Latch Recall

    They said in the letter, if you have to close the doors multiple times for it to latch, then its possible the door could open while driving.
  4. I guess it could be frustrating. It didn't bother me much because it was under warranty and I always had a loaner MKX when they had the car. Oh, the service staff at my dealership were just great.
  5. arthurmac I dug out the Repair Order Detail to make sure I had the correct number. Here is what it says: "Customer states check for vibration between 45-50 MPH without brakes applied." 1 KIT - CLUTCH REPAIR CV6Z*4A232*A $352.28 Remember, they replaced a number of other parts before this resolution did the job.

    Poor gas mileage on 3.7 awd!

    A 300 HP AWD non-turbo engine is not an economy car.

    New NHTSA Recall Number 19V632

    Thanks for posting this. Ran the VIN on my 2014 and it's not affected.

    Auto Climate Control & Air Conditioning

    In my 2014 I activate the AC and Auto settings. I then set the temperature I want to maintain and forget about it.
  9. I don't have an Iphone or an answer to your specific issue. As far as SYNC is concerned... I have a 2014 MKz my Motorola phone is android. It displays and will also read my text messages flawlessly.

    Clunky Shifting & "Dead" Spot

    Scott, I have a 2014, 3.7L AWD (non-turbo 300 hp) I have tried BP 87 and 89 each for about a month. 87 was terrible. 89 was better but, I still had some issues of the type you mention. When I went to BP 93 (my station does not have 91) all the little issues went away.

    Ambient Lighting reverts to default

    I had that problem with my 2014. I seem to remember there was a dealer fix or perhaps it was fixed in an update, but not sure. Artie, drolds1 had the same issue with his 2014. Perhaps he can remember what fixed it.
  12. Like drolds1 said, the basic 4/50 warranty.
  13. My car was still under the factory warrantee at the time. It didn't cost me anything and I got a loaner car (MKx) when they were working on it.

    SiriusXM subscription offers?

    I am lucky that I have a few really good HD Radio stations (WNEW HD-2 is one) in my area. I have satellite radio but don't really "need" it for music.
