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.

2015 Lincoln MKX Concept First Look
2015 Lincoln MKX Concept First Look
The Lincoln Motor Company unveiled the MKX Concept at Auto China 2014 in
Beijing. The Lincoln MKX Concept hints at a global SUV that will become the
third of four all-new Lincoln vehicles due by 2016. It is designed to
capture the attention of consumers worldwide.
This execution communicates adaptability to different road conditions,
combined with crafted execution and attention to detail.
Defined by an aerodynamic, sloping teardrop roofline, the Lincoln MKX
Concept's modern silhouette lends to its sporty personality, which is
highlighted by wide shoulders flanking its recessed rear windows to
heighten the design. Dynamic side undercuts, a high beltline and 21-inch
machined aluminum wheels further enhance the well-proportioned design.
The roof over the rear was lowered to give the vehicle a sleeker shape.
Highlighted by a panoramic glass surface that lets natural light fill the
cabin and integrated roof racks, the floating rear spoiler houses the
center high-mounted stop light and hides the antenna.
The Lincoln MKX Concept offers a new interpretation of Lincoln's signature
"Concept vehicles are defined by every design detail," said David
Woodhouse, Lincoln design director, "and this MKX Concept shows how
Lincoln's thoughtful design philosophy continues to evolve. The Lincoln
brand was built on vehicles with stunning design, and the MKX Concept is
the latest example."
Lincoln's aggressive signature split-wing grille accentuates the front end.
The artistic interpretation of the grille features horizontal lines that
continue as strips of LED accent lights below each headlamp. These strips
of light glow sequentially as part of Lincoln's updated approach detection
feature - one element of the Lincoln Experiences package.
Lincoln Experiences, a technology-driven suite of features introduced on
the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKX small utility vehicle, is designed to create a
warmer, more personal luxury car-owning experience. Anticipating and
responding to a driver's needs and preferences, Lincoln Experiences offers
a warm embrace that begins as a driver approaches the vehicle and continues
upon entry and vehicle start-up.

Ford Edge VistaRoof Problem Fix - Part 1
Some Edge-owners have some problems with a blocking vistaroof of their Ford
Edge. Instead of completely close the roof stays open some inches. It is
the result of an decalibrating failure of the roof steering. This video and
2 further parts show how to fix that problem to recalibrate the roof
That video only make sense when you look all parts in right order.
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.
