Multiple low beam headlamp harness plugs have melted. Other running light plugs have also shown heat damage and caused the light to fail to work. Bulbs are not failing but the receptacle/plug where they connect to the vehicle shows heat damage and melting until the light looses connection. I have replaced both low beam headlight plugs already and am getting ready to replace them again. This bulb/plug design probably affects other models and probably other manufacturers too.

In states where road salt is used, Ford is recalling certain vehicles where the license plate lamp assembly may experience an electro-chemical reaction and corrosion as a result of water intrusion. Ford's list of recalled vehicles appear to be very narrow. My 2007 Lincoln Mkx (three years prior to the current recall list) has the same problem - one of the 2 license plate lights is corroded and quit working (it was rusted and fell apart when I went to replace it). I expect the other light isn't far behind. If there is an increased risk of fire, the current recall should warrant a closer look at adding more vehicles that used this component. Re: NHTSA campaign number: 14V285000 component(s): Exterior lighting consequence: Corrosion may result in a short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

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.
