Just a few months into our long-term test of the 2017 Lincoln Continental and it already needed a month of service at the dealership. Is this a sign of things to come?

    A part of me wonders how much this car has to do with the firing of Mark Fields. I imagine a board meeting where the directors were driven from the airport in Continentals and decided to dump the CEO who oversaw this car. This is supposed to be the car to save Lincoln. The latest in a string of cars dating to the previous Continental, the LS and the MKS. All were supposed to be something different. Rather we continue to see a brand that just doesn't understand the market.
    I am starting to see more of them but every one is part of a car service. That could be fine if the car was great and that car service ride or Uber pickup introduces the passenger to a great new car. But it doesn't seem to be. Rather, this seems to be the successor to the last Town Car.

    It's clear Lincoln/Ford doesn't understand the luxury market. It's not only the products, but the dealers — it seems most Lincoln dealers are part of Ford franchises, and the Ford franchises I've visited still operate like it's 1970. We were all ready to buy a Fusion until we actually went to try to buy one and were treated insultingly poorly by multiple dealers. Inflating sticker prices and making sexist comments (while my wife was with me) are unacceptable for any brand, much less a luxury one.

    The trunk misalignment makes me cringe.

    And without an explanation on the seat bladder, what confidence do you have that it won't fail again?
