Lincoln is a large American division of the automotive manufacturer, Ford. One of Lincoln’s major competitors is Cadillac, General Motors’ counterpart. Founded in 1917, Lincoln has marketed itself as a luxury car brand that currently manufactures sedans, crossovers, SUVs, and other vehicles such as limousines. The most common models to date are the Navigator, Continental, Nautilus, Aviator, and Corsair.
Issues & Recalls
Lincoln has faced its fair share of defects and customer complaints, most of which came about in the 2014 and 2015 models. Ford had to recall the 2015 MKC SUVs in North America because there were problems with the fuel pumps that could lead to stalling of the vehicle.
Further, there was a recall on the same vehicle for a faulty design of the push-button start. The 2015 MKC crossovers were also the subject of a recall which was because of a flaw that could lead to the engine randomly stalling for no reason.
There have been a few other design flaws, including 2015 SUVs that had bubbles in the windshield that could affect the visibility of drivers on the road. Though Lincoln is a highly regarded motor vehicle brand in the U.S., it seems that the reliability of the car went down around 2014-2015 due to numerous oversights in the manufacturing and designs of the crossover and SUV models.
In California, the warranties on new and used vehicles, including Lincolns, carry with them until it expires. Therefore, any new, used, or leased Lincoln that has problems during the warranty period, could be deemed to be a lemon. It is always a good idea to have an attorney who can advocate for your rights when dealing with Lincoln or other powerful manufacturing brands.
