Water pump failure: Lincoln Mkx 2007 driving down the road at approximately 55 mph, car was running great as usual when suddenly I lost all power except lights. At that speed, thankfully I had enough time to get over two lanes of traffic with no power and coast off the road. I had to car towed to a local mechanic where master certified technicians are working to replace my engine. The car had just been serviced for oil change, air filter, routine maintenance two weeks prior to this engine failure. Mechanic found that the water pump failed leading to oil and coolant in the engine. This car 122,000 miles on it and has been meticulously maintained. There is a class action suit over this, but I was never notified by Ford or by my dealer (oxmoor Ford Lincoln) that there was a potential problem with the design of this engine. The water pump is inside the engine. When this fails with no warning it causes the engine to fail. This has lead to a cost to me of $6000 to replace the engine. I spoke to heather at Lincoln quality today (case #11395985) and she said, "unfortunately we have nothing to offer you except our sincere apologies." This is not acceptable customer service. I was not asking to recoup my entire loss since the vehicle has miles on it, but they could offer something to a (former) lifelong Ford customer.

  • 40,000 miles
I was driving out of the parking lot suddenly anxious about the gas pedal because however hard I pressed it, the car wouldn't move ahead. I managed to get onto the main road with the emergency wrench coming up along with the driver airbag and zero mileage for the car indicating. However, this was lucky because it didn't happen on highway, I was extremely stressed out standing in the lane to turn to highway. I changed my mind, turned around, and returned to the parking lot at a crawl. I understand now that this is a common issue with the Lincoln Mkx 2007 due to the fact that the Ford opened a claim website related to just this problem. No wonder recently I have been bombarded with the letters to renew my factory warranty as soon as possible. Just as I paid off my car last January, it started breaking on me. Is it the reason why you make your cars to last only during the period of the 5-year factory warranty?!now, to change sensor on the pedal cost 400+ and I am afraid to drive Lincoln Mkx because of this safety issue.
