Upon driving north on rt. 95 in ga our pan aramaic moonroof unexpectedly exploded. There was no apparent reason. No debris was present and environmental conditions were not extreme. ( sunny day about 72 degrees f). The explosion was very loud and alarming creating a risk of losing control of the vehicle. Bodily injury could have resulted if the moon roof cover was open and chards of glass were shot into the vehicle. We have not contact the manufacturer yet , but plan to. There was absolutely no warning of this. It was sudden, unexpected and explosive. The tempered glass was shattered and glass was missing from all along all 4 sides of the moon roof. Very scary. I assume this is due to a manufacturing defect.
I purchased this vehicle 6 months ago and have had nothing but electrical issues since. The front lincoln emblem and the rear driverside brake lights do not work. Also, the heated driver seat stopped working. I have read the lighting issue is common.

In 2015 a recall was done to repair the power steering failure issue. In october of 2021, while driving the vehicle down the highway, the power steering went out making the vehicle almost impossible to steer. Had the vehicle towed to the dealership where they verified the issue and pulled code u3000 for steering gear failure. With 68827 miles, i was charged for the entire repair with not one mention about the extension to the power steering recall. The parts and labor that were charged were those mentioned in the recall. Fast forward to november 2022, had the vehicle towed to the same dealership for the same issue. Lights on the dash were present, and concern verified that the power steering was completely inoperative. No communication with the unit told me that the power steering control needed to be replaced. Again there was no mention or advocating involving the power steering recall that involved this exact issue. This time was told that they installed a part that was used in the previous repair so again i had to pay the entire cost. Currently, there are no issues with the vehicle but i have been looking to sell it because i have not driven it much due to the cost of these repairs. It was during my research to sell that i came across all the recall information on my vehicle and do not understand why all of these costs were not covered and why the dealership did nothing to advocate for me.
The steering assist warning message came on and power steering failed twice in less than a week's time on my 2015 lincoln mkc. It first happened while turning left and later in a parking lot at low speed shortly after i’d started the car. I could have had an accident had someone been behind me. I could not even steer the car into my driveway. Oddly, the problem would go away after turning the car off and restarting a short while later. Nonetheless, it's dangerous. I took it to a lincoln dealer, and the problem did not resurface during a diagnostic test or test drive - and no malfunction codes came up. So, i was asked if i wanted to come back and get it or they keep it a few more days to see if the issue came back. I went to pick it up, and no sooner than i turned it on to leave the lot, it did it again. They kept the car, but it was end of day so there is no word yet. Other owners of mkcs, mkts and mkzs are reporting the same problem, with no real fix. They also took this car to the dealer a year ago to address the current recall issue, but they have yet to fix it, saying they do not have the part and would call me when they do.
