Lincoln station wagon. One can only imagine what kind of image those words create in your mind, but chances are they don’t include a single guy on vacation…unless you’re up-to-date with Autobytel’s “Living With…” series. This is where we steer away from the traditional automotive review format and, instead, focus on how a vehicle lives up to the needs and expectations of busy, daily life. So, to put the 2010 Lincoln MKT to the test, I hopped a plane to Washington and spent a week with my girlfriend, documenting what it was like to take her extended family – including little kids and a trike – to the park, what kind of mileage the MKT offered during a trip over the Cascade mountains, and what her folks would think of this big-fanged domestic hauler when it rolled up their farm’s gravel driveway. It was a fun-filled week, one that delivered more than a few surprises.
