Acura is only good for people that want a reliable and affordable luxury sedan/SUV, thats all. Lincoln is starting to be better with the improvements in design and features, they still have a way to go, so far on track to beating acura.

Lincoln is also for people who want affordable luxury

Except its not all that reliable. It still has some ways to go. They are far down on the food chain.

and thats where acura swoops in to steal their customers, i'd love to see what the conversion is like of people transitioning from a Lincoln to Acura.

Likely.
Eventually people will get fed up, ask for a buy back if possible and move on. Or get out of it some how.

it depends. I've met many owners who were happy. If you just happen to get a car thats bad it'll taint your reputation of Lincoln. And Acura is easily within reach for many.

I have also met a lot of happy owners, but it's understandable that a forum like this would attract more people with complains, so we see it more here. Probably gives people the ideal most MKZ's are like this.

BTW who said anyone was transitioning from Acura to Lincoln or vice versa? Both of them are wallowing in the same position, its likely a lateral move...

I will say Lincolns have more sex to them than Acura. Id rather drive an MKZ than a TL or TSX...

They compete in similar price markets. Just under the germans that is.

So I could see some people cross shopping them.
