I bought a 2009 Lincoln MKX in March. The power lift gate problem occurred in May. It is an intermittent problem which typically occurs if I don't check to make sure the gate has stayed shut. I had an 08 MKX with the same problem. I have contacted Lincoln Customer Service about this problem and they have informed me that they are unaware of the issue. However a quick google took me to the Ford Edge Forum where there are many complaints about the same occurrence going back to early 2008. I called my dealer about the problem and was told to bring the car in the next time it happens. I explained that the problem is intermittent. The reply I got was "if it's a problem with the wipers, bring it in.". Right now I have a problem. I am hoping that this video will help to place the responsibility for fixing the problem where it belongs, with Ford so that they have the problem. UPDATE Nov 18th 2009
I may have solved the problem due to the help from other owners who have experienced the same problems. I did the following things;
1) I deactivated the power liftgate,
2) Switched off the engine and then
3) Restarted the engine
4) reactivated the power liftgate.
This seems to have solved the problem. Clearly it's a computer malfunction and resetting the power liftgate seems to have done the job. I guess the question still remains "Why didn't Lincoln Tech Support know this?".
The gate has operated flawlessly since the reset but will it stay that way and when will it happen again and what will I have stored in my cargo area and what will happen to it if the liftgate fails to remain closed once again?
The problem re-occurred last month Aug 2010. It only happened once and in the same location as this video. But I'm keeping a very close watch.

"With a car-based chassis and attractive styling, the 2007 Lincoln MKX is a
fresh alternative to more established luxury crossover SUVs; however, its
questionable brakes and so-so cabin furnishings leave it a few steps behind
the leaders in this class." (Edmunds.com)

in Beijing. The Lincoln MKX Concept hints at a global SUV that will become

2010 GMC Terrain Two-Level Power Hatch Demo
Our new 2010 GMC Terrain has many convenience features, not least of which
is the power rear hatch that can be set by the driver to open to his or her
choice of two preset heights. The "max" setting opens the liftgate far
enough that I can stand beneath it without bonking my head. I'm 6'2" tall,
and my tape measure indicates that there is about 6'4" of clearance. But
this opening height puts the handle and power close button at an
uncomfortable reach for my 5'6" wife.
No problem here. Simply twist the control knob to "3/4" and the hatch will
stop 6 inches lower. It's quite simple to go back and forth between the
two, and wherever you leave the control knob you'll get that opening height
no matter how you trigger the power hatch, be it the main roof-mounted
trigger inside, the release just above the rear license plate, or the
button on the key fob. It's pretty handy.
