Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #16: 2013 Reliability Data: The Ups and Downs
Find out what cars are reliable - and which ones are a pain - as we discuss
results from Consumer Reports 2013 Auto Reliability survey. This year's
survey has some surprises, including an unexpected fourth place finisher
for most-reliable brand. Learn how reliable the Tesla Model S is from
responses for over 600 cars. Complicated infotainment systems bring down
some brands, while others also struggle to launch reliable new models. We
also discuss what all of this means to a buyer, and highlight a change in
recommended models due to IIHS crash test results.

New 2011 Lincoln MKX - Presented By Napleton Lincoln of Park Ridge.
The All New 2011 Lincoln MKX - Presented By Napleton Lincoln of Park Ridge.
Call Now for more info at 877-441-8779... The New 2011 Lincoln MKX comes
with an upgraded engine moving away from her older model, which had the 265
producing 3.5 liter engine. The MKX now incorporates a 3.5 liter engine
that delivers 305 horsepower through a V6.
Also now there is a six-speed automatic attached, which can be shifted by
driver's fingertips and together with the engine increases torque.
This does not only give the MKX 15 percent more power, but also makes it
more responsive to driver shifts and throttling. Mileage in the 2011 MKX
has also improved albeit by 1 mpg making it both most fuel efficient and
most powerful V6 offered in its class.
Other interesting changes include the chassis, brakes and resized Booster. The brakes are now bigger and combine
discs with a larger diameter with the Booster making for a firmer brake pedal. Also
available as standard are cruise control, trailer sway control, collision
warning system and hill-start assist, which allow the 2011 MKX to develop
itself as a good vehicle.
Road tests revealed some solid numbers but do not accurately depict the
MKX's driving attributes. The MKX whizzed from 0-60 in about 7.2 seconds,
stopped in 132 feet from a speed of 60 mph and took 15.5 seconds to finish
the quarter mile. In comparison to the RX 350 the MKX feels tighter, more
responsive to steering inputs and even emanates a more macho sound.
Styling of the MKX is without a doubt reminiscent of the age we live in. It
could also be described as space-age. The brash grille at the front of the
MKX makes a bold statement and LED taillights that are spilt give the rear
a great look. The new styling along with wider flares and smoother lines
allows the MKX to gain an identity of its own.
The interiors of the MKX are similarly revamped to a dramatic extent and
incorporate a range of innovative technology. The first thing you will
notice is the MyLincoln Touch, which is an audio, navigation and climate
system that makes traditional buttons obsolete. This screen based system
works with touch sensitive controls placed on the center stack along with
the steering wheel switches.
The touch controls that the Lincoln MKX uses instead of the traditional
buttons are a cool idea but require a bit more attention and may seem hard
to operate at first. But once muscle memory takes over then things get a
lot easier and the sliders actually work quite well. In the MKX it seems
that Ford has thought of everything and for those who have big broad
fingers and find it hard to fiddle around with small things they have
incorporated voice command ability. The voice system in the Lincoln seems
to be a huge stride in intuitiveness and engineers claim it responds to a
range of more than 10,000 voice commands that not only allow you to place
calls, change temperature or request a radio station but will also play a
specific song as requested.
There are three screens that the system employs to inform the driver of
various functions. One is the traditionally positioned navigation network
in the center of the console and the other two are smaller 4.2 inch LCD's
placed at the right and left of the speedometer.
The two smaller screens positioned in front of the driver are manipulated
by the buttons on the steering wheel. The right sided buttons control
navigation, audio, climate and phone settings and display information on
the right LCD. The left LCD displays the tachometer graph and vehicle
information. The 2011 MKX will come with MyLincoln Touch as standard so it
is good that the engineers at Ford have covered all bases with it.
Further interior design changes are the new dashboard and door panels,
which have a neat finished stitching to them. Authentic wood trim is also
available in different color varieties as is the option of real aluminum
Cabin ride is smooth and interior cabin is very quiet even at high speeds,
which is better in order to listen to the THX II 14-speaker audio system
that is available as an option.
