Lincoln MKX Manual Shift Lockout

By Greg P.

Lincon needs to correct the ability on the MKX Transmission from the driver accidently selectiing (M) Manual vs (D). This is very easy to do since there isn't any detent/lockout currently from preventing this from happening. If this isn't addressed someone could blow up the engine since they could be stuck in First Gear not realizing that they are in Manual Drive and not Standard Drive.

Other Car Mfg's transmissions operate the way, with a Manual Drive Lockout, why doesn't Lincoln's?

Thanks

I agree with this. It is much too easy to shift into M gear. I put a cork there to stop from shifting into manual drive!! Stupid idea of no block.
