I purchased my MKT new in March of 2010, loaded with every option except the power 3rd row seats (mine are manually operated). I have about 38K miles now and have had only one issue to be repaired under warranty...a control module in the transmission that affected the 'radar' cruise control and the transmission. Other than that the car has been perfect.
The Ecoboost engine give you incredible power, from acceleration to passing it is hard to imagine a 3.5 L. V-6 giving you so much. While I test drove other models with the standard engine, which if fine, the Ecoboost makes a huge difference in power.
The ride is firm, yet comfortable, the only 'ding' is the 3rd row seating which can only be inhabited by Munchkins or very small children. Handling is great considering this is a 5K lb SUV Crossover. Braking is strong and consistent. The 'radar' cruise control option is incredible...I can use it in rush hour traffic commuting in Dallas...it adjusts speed to the traffic, applying brakes as needed. A great option to have.
The self parking feature works well, though I have used it only a couple of times.
Due to the rear roof line the storage space (& 3rd row head room) is not as great as you would think. But...I like the styling and for me the trade off is worthwhile.
Overall I am very happy with my MKT. It has been the most reliable car I have owned and I highly recomend it for consideration.

I chose this over the BMW X5, Acura MDX and Mercedes R 350 because:
EcoBoost - very fast
2 sunroofs, 1 that can open
Has paddle shifters
I love my car

It's comfortable. Has a ton of space. Great for the family. Great to drive.
