  1. akirby, I said I am sorry...and by the way, my name is not "Dude". I really appreciate that cyberdman does what he does, and that is why I was surprised when he "turned" on me when I made the mistake. Do me a big favor and remove me from this forum.
  2. I received this message from Cyberdman last night after I asked for an update on my new truck I have ordered. "What is wrong with you? Seriously? You are about 3 seconds from getting a permanent ban from this forum and website. One more time and that's it - you screw up once more and you will be gone, no more excuses - that is it. You have now asked for tracking in (at least) 3 other places than your own tracking thread which you already have. 2 times in other people's tracking threads and once in my sticky rules thread and those are only the ones I know off the top of my head. You have your own thread that you created for tracking. Why aren't you using it? All this time and you still have barely an idea about how forums or threads (and heck who knows maybe even the internet) works at all. Get it together, I'm not telling you again." Apparently I made the horrible mistake of asking for an update in too many different threads. I didn't realize I was doing this terrible act. I actually had forgotten about my original post here. So, to everyone on this forum I apologize. Now, is there anyone else that can give me an update on my truck (VIN 1FTER4FH6LLA03925)? If not, that is ok too. Thanks in advance.
  3. Thank you, cyberdman!
  4. I don't know if I am doing this correctly, but here is my VIN: 1FTER4FH6LLA03925

    Daytime Running Lights

    My dealer in Peoria, Illinois, says it cannot be done. He says it takes a module change. I can't believe Ford would do this. It seems they could use the same module for the USA cars as used for Canadian cars and just have a program change. Of course, I also feel they should have designed the "MY Lincoln Touch" to work correctly too.

    MKX shipping on hold

    Thanks for the information. I have phone problems with my new MKX and the dealer has no information about an update coming. You say it is already out?

    How can I get a copy of the TSB?

    Do you know for sure there is an update to the Sync? I asked my dealer and he knew nothing about it. I am having trouble keeping my cell phone connected some times. One time it stays connected and the next time it does not. I have "unpaired" it and "repaired" it, rebooted the cell phone by taking the battery out, went to Verizon to make sure the phone had the latest software installed, and disabled the auto update of the phonebook in Sync and nothing fixes the problem. I was hoping this so called update would fix my problem, but the dealer says he knows of no update.

    Nick, glad to hear you got a good one. We must have just gotten the "fluke" with the problems.

    Just Took Delivery on new MKX

    Just noticed another defect today while cleaning the car. The chrome piece that runs across the base of the rear windows in the Driver'sw side rear door does not fit correctly. It appears arched instead of straight. The rubber seal at the base of stationary triangular window is about 1/8 of an inch from the window. I can't believe Ford would let this simple easy to see problem out of the plant. They must not have much in the way of quality control. Now we have to take it back to the dealer so (as he says) he can take pictures of it to send to Ford to see what can be done. Hell, I know what to do - fix it.

    Show and Tell

    Nice rig, Borg. Thanks for sharing the pics. My wife and I took delivery on ours last week (Ingot Silver with black interior). It is a very nice looking vehicle. We have had a few issues though that are getting us wondering what kind of reliabilty we might have with this vehicle later. Here are the issues we have had during our first 100 miles since delivery: Driver's side power seat did not work correctly - dealer replaced parts to fix. Vehicle pulled hard to the right - dealer swapped front tires/wheels with another new MKX he had telling us we had a defective tire. Chrome piece that runs across the base of the rear windows does not fit correctly - it appears to be arched rather than straight and the rubber seal at the base of the rear stationary triagular window is away from the window by about an eighth of an inch. It is against the window on the other side of the vehicle. We cannot keep a cell phone connected to Sync - no explanation for this from the dealer. These are what we have found in just the first 100 miles. I worry about later. I don't want to put a damper on your delivery, but you might want to check it over good for defects. It appears the attention to detail is somewhat lacking at the Ford Plant the assembles these. Anyway, I sure hope the you and the rest of the people getting the Edge and the MKX get off to a better start than we have. Oh, one other thing - don't email Ford with a question about anything on your new vehicle. I did that and all I got was an email asking me for information like the VIn and what dealer I purchased it from. Heck, all I wanted answered was a simple question.

    2011 Ford Edge Warranty Pricing

    I couldn't get a message to send to the Two Rivers Ford email posted on here so bought a 7 Year 60K mile zero deductible from my Lincoln dealer for our new 2011 Lincoln MKX for $1015. I didn't think that was too bad of a price to pay.
  13. Thanks to both of you for the responses. Yes, it does have the My Lincoln Touch and I have now figured out that you can only play one cd at a time. I appologize for not knowing what all this vehicle has. This is my wife's car and I think we both need to sit down in it and just start reading the manuals from page one to the end and trying the different stuff as we read. I figured this would give me an option to copy the cd to the hardrive and then one could copy another and so forth, but I have not found any info on that yet. The manuals don't say much at all about the cd function. We really like the vehicle so far with the exception of the driver's side power seat not working. We have an appt. with the dealer this Thursday to have new parts installed to fix this. We hope this was just a fluke and not the sign more problems to come. Oh, we also had to have the two front wheels/tires swapped with another new MKX at the dealer as the vehicle pulled pretty hard to the right when we first got it. The dealer said that one of the tires was not tracking correctly. We will see on that on. It only had 4 miles on it at delivery. So, maybe it just needs to be driven a bit to loosen everything up a bit. Again, thanks for the replies.
  14. We recently took delivery of our new 2011 Lincoln MKX. We have looked through all of the literature we received with it and cannot find any information on loading CD's, Playing them, etc. We don't know if it is a 6 disc changer or can only have one disc loaded at a time. Do any of you know where we can find some information on this function of the audio system? Surely there must be some instructions for it out there somewhere. If any of you know a phone number for me to call Ford for info on it, please let me know what the number is. Thanks!

    Just Took Delivery on new MKX

    I ordered the trailer towing package on this and was surprised that I got a 2 inch square hitch instead of the 1 1/4 inch I thought it was coming with. I don't know if there is a wiring harness with this package as I have not found any information yet on it and really haven't looked that hard. Just thought I would let everyone know about the hitch size I received.
