Review: 2009 Lincoln MKX

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2009 Lincoln MKX.

Whenever a Lincoln comes into our garage, we grab iPods and CDs, looking forward to driving around and listening to music because of the excellent THX audio system. The MKX also has Sync, so we could hook up an 80GB Zune and ask the system to play whatever artist we could think of.

With the latest package of cabin tech toys, the MKX also provides useful information in the car, such as the location of the cheapest nearby gas and traffic jams. Movie times and sports scores might be a little more frivolous, but either could come in handy, if we weren't so engrossed by the audio system. A more luxurious ride would have been nice, as we wanted to spend a lot of time behind the wheel of the MKX.

Check out one of the best values in a tech car.
