Used Car: 2010 Lincoln MKX Review

Review Last Updated: 8/10/12

When it was new, reviewers applauded the 2010 Lincoln MKX’s extensive list of standard features and comfortable, spacious cabin. Its great safety and reliability scores may make up for some low-quality interior materials and lackluster handling.

The 2010 Lincoln MKX is ranked:

There are lots of good reasons to choose the 2010 Lincoln MKX as your next five-seat luxury crossover. Its fuel economy is better than average, its safety scores are great and its reliability rating is one of the best in the class. Reviewers appreciated its roomy interior and its wealth of standard features.

Test drivers did have some significant complaints about this SUV, however. They noted that some of its interior materials were of lower quality than many other entries in the class, and said its braking performance wasn’t perfect. However, many reviewers’ biggest problem was that the 2010 MKX just isn’t nice enough to justify its price premium over the 2010 Ford Edge, on which it is based. Still, for buyers who want a five-seat SUV from a luxury brand, most reviewers agreed that the 2010 Lincoln MKX is a very good choice.

Other Cars to Consider

If you want an SUV with a bit more prestige than the Lincoln MKX, consider the 2010 Mercedes-Benz M-Class. It’s more capable off-road than the MKX, and reviewers preferred its on-road performance as well. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class’ reliability rating isn’t as good as the MKX’s, but its available diesel model should get slightly better fuel economy than the MKX.

According to reviewers, the 2010 Lexus RX is one of the best five-seat crossovers you can buy. They loved its above-average fuel economy, very well-made interior and smooth ride. The RX’s reliability rating is also outstanding, tied for first place in its class with Lexus’ other midsize offerings. Test drivers were quick to note that the Lexus RX isn’t sporty, but it’s hard to argue with its top-of-the-class rankings in most other areas.
