2010 Lincoln MKT Owner Comments

  • 300 miles


Within weeks of getting my 2010 Lincoln Mkt the brakes were acting strange and making a grinding sound. I felt that the stops were getting dangerously unresponsive. I took the car in for service and after putting 50 miles on my car was told they could not find anything wrong. I took my car back and the brake problem got worse and everyone who rode in my car would comment on the noise my car made as I applied pressure on the brakes. I took it back and was told that another model had experienced the same problem and that they were just going to replace the brakes. After a few days the noises and my discomfort driving the car began again. I also know someone who has the same car with the same exact problem, that Lincoln has been unable to remedy. It is obviously a problem, I hope that none of us are hurt due to whatever the problem is.

The contact owns a 2010 Lincoln Mkt. While driving approximately 35 mph he noticed that the vehicle was pulling to the right and he could feel vibrations throughout the entire vehicle. He also heard a grinding noise whenever pressure was applied to the brake pedal. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the brakes were repaired. Approximately one week later the failures began to recur and the vehicle was taken back to the authorized dealer where the brakes were repaired again. Upon receiving the vehicle from the authorized dealer the vibrations and pulling toward the right continued to occur. While driving approximately 35 he heard a loud bang and the vehicle pulled sharply to the right. The steering wheel then became very stiff forcing the contact to drive onto the emergency lane and turn the vehicle off. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer where he was informed that there was a failure within the steering column, computer system and tie rods. The vehicle was repaired. While driving approximately 30 mph down a slight decline he heard a loud bang. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where he was informed that the rear wheel driving system failed which was repaired. He also stated that the brake failure continued to occur and the vehicle continued to pull to the right. The failure mileage was 1,000 and the current mileage was 11,000.

Repeated brake failure starting December 16, 2009. Occurs every time we start using the car after it has sat for awhile until brakes are pumped up or several stops are made. 2 front calipers were leaking but problem continues. We have a complete timeline of events available.
