2016 Lincoln Mkx - fwd- loses balance when accelerated. Its wobbles/ swirls when stepped on the gas on a city street or on a highway. When we brought the car in, Lincoln dealership services foreman, adviser and director claimed its their Mkx fwd normal characteristics. The dealership did not disclose this defective design at the time of purchasing. There are no fixes, and the Mkx AWD does not have this problem/characteristics. We have contact the corporate office and the manager said they trusted their services engineers that its the normal characteristics of the Mkx AWD. Both the adviser and the corporate manager said for us to report to our insurance company if we got into an accident because of this defective design. We bought a very expensive car, but unable to use its abilities, because it is unsafe to accelerate. Who would buy a very expensive car and afraid to step on the gas? Lincoln needs to disclose the Mkx fwd- defective designs that they claimed to be the normal characteristics to their customers at the time of buying. Or they need to stop putting the eco boost eng on the fwd Mkx cars.
