2009 Lincoln MKS Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Various radio performance concerns may develop including noisy operation, no operation, or SYNC issues. Reprogramming the appropriate module with updated software will commonly correct most of these issues.

Brakes -- Verified

A grunting or grinding type noise may be noted from the front brakes. Our technicians tell us the problem is generally caused by the front brake caliper anchor brackets which can cause abnormal brake rotor and pad wear. The repair commonly involves replacing the brake pads and rotors and updating the caliper anchor brackets with revised parts.

Drive Train -- Verified

A fluid leak may be noted from the axle area. Red fluid is from the transmission. Brown fluid is from the power transfer unit (PTU). Leaks are commonly from the axle seal and/or PTU cover seal. Leaking seals should be replaced as necessary.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The trunk lid may not latch closed, this is generally caused by the trunk latch sticking in the open position. Our technicians tell us that in most cases the trunk latch assembly will need to be replaced to correct this issue.

Brakes -- Verified

The rear brakes may drag, causing a rhythmic sound. This can be caused by misaligned or corroded brake caliper anchor bolts. Our technicians recommend to replace the brake pads and anchor bolts to correct this concern.

2009 Lincoln MKS Reviews

Bought my MKS in June 2010 as a demo car with 12,000 miles on it. It is my second favorite car of all time and I'm 70. It drives and feels more like a European car (the ride is not soft but not harsh)and handles very well in emergencies. My Lincoln is AWD and works great in the snow however, if the snow is more than 7" deep the airdam causes snow to be pushed up in front of the radiator. It currently has 61,000 miles on it and I average 22.5 miles/gal. The tires still have at least 10,000 miles left on the tread but the sidewalls are beginning to crack. I dread having to buy new tire for these 20" rims.
The car has only be in the shop for one problem; the drivers side seat control bracket broke and was replace with a new-better part. I put my own trailer hitch on a couple of years ago and have towed two large motorcycles on a heavy trailer 450 miles each way to the beach and back with no problems. At the current miles I am just having brakes replace for the first time. Odd that the rear breaks are more worn out than the front. Must be because my wife has driven with the parking brake on. Over all I'm very please with the car, but hate to think what a radio/navi or transmission problem might cost.

Check engine light comes on all the time, then goes off. I've taken it to the dealership twice and they can't find anything wrong with it. 1st they said it was the car's computer. Seems to come on after I get gas or just for no apparent reason at all. Nice car, but it makes me leary of the quality with the light coming on and off.
