Lincoln Motor Company is a subdivision of the American automotive maker, Ford. With a line of full-size luxury sedans, cross-overs, and sport vehicles, it was founded in 1917 and named after Abraham Lincoln. This line of luxury vehicles often finds itself in direct competition with Cadillac and BMW. Lincoln’s MKZ was the first hybrid car ever to be introduced at the same price as its gas counterpart.
Even with a beloved American history, Lincoln vehicles are not without defect. If your Lincoln has gone through repair attempts with no solution, you may have purchased a lemon. Such a transaction may entitle you to protective measures under both the California State and Federal law. Consumers residing in California’s Oakland Alameda County area should contact Kaufman & Kavicky, LLP for a consultation regarding cash or replacement compensation.

Even the Lincoln brand may experience these defects in their product:
- Crack on the lift gate
