Hello all --

I am finally able to make public my latest video on the 2017 Lincoln MKZ 3.0T AWD. I've had this video on my channel for a while, and I'm excited to get it out to the public. I truly hope I can help someone with similar issues in finding a resolution. Its a LONG video, and my final thoughts are pretty much my favorite part of any video I've done.

I hope you enjoy my new format, and the content in the video.

  • 2017 Lincoln MKZ Brake Squeal

  • 2017 Lincoln MKZ Headlight Condensation Issue
  • Michelin Primacy Tire Blowout Issue
  • 2017 Lincoln MKZ Domelight Issue

Oh one more comment about the video -- check out 6:00 minutes I show an MKX going into some sort of HVAC test mode.

Will review, looking forward to the excitement.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Good video.  Well done.  Good looking car, but sounds like you got a complete lemon.  Not my experience with Lincolns, but I'd be extremely pissed off if I were in your position with that car.

Thank you! -- Some of these issues were in fact "a fluke" while others like the brake squealing and dome light, I've been contacted by people asking how I got them fixed. I'm just hoping that this helps people.
