I was in back of my Mkx in driveway of my sisters home. I was trying to get the tailgate door to open and it wouldn't open. I tried three times to open with the release button. It would not open. So I went opened and stood at the door to press the release button from inside twice and it still wouldn't open the tailgate. As my sister was coming out of her home she was yelling for me to move move because I had not noticed that the Mkx was rolling out of driveway. With me still standing outside of it. I finally just feel because I couldn't keep up or jump in to stop it. I fell to cement in middle of street. My sister kept yelling for me to move as the Mkx was rolling and the wheels were turning towards my legs. Thank god it didn't run over me. This was a horrible and scary experience. My sister got in the Mkx to get it out of the street. She said it was in reverse. It was in park for a fact as I was in the back for minutes trying to open the tailgate. This happened on 1426 peppertree ln 77015 where my sister lives.

1st tracking number 10849876 - advance service tract (provided to dealership for repair) on 3/16/2016, contacted 24 hr dealership to retrieve SUV. In addition to the service tract failure (indicator light showing 2 cars), now have multiple problems. Problems consist of: Cross service system fault, vehicles rolls forward & backward after stopping, and a big clunk when putting in a gear. Spoke with the (a) GM of the dealership and informed him vehicle was in for the service tract failure on 2/8/2016 and now I have the same problem and additional problem. I was on a city street when the advance service tract immediately lit up with 2 indicators on the right side of the steering wheel. Attempted to make a right turn and the cross service system fault light appeared with a tool like object on the left side of the steering wheel. While attempting to make a right turn, the car did not want to go forward, barely moving and a tiny hill to pull was impossible. I immediately start detouring away from major city street because I had not idea what was happening and I needed to get home with a senior citizen over 80 with me. The SUV had difficulty moving forward. For a 2014 Lincoln Mkx, I was informed that I had a transmission problem and apparently a call was made to the hot line to fix the advance service tract and the cross service system fault. My concern, is the 2014 Mkx a Lincoln lemon? received SUV back on 3/18/2016
