Since it’s a brand-new vehicle, the 2009 Lincoln MKS has not been crash tested yet by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The safety equipment you'd expect to see in a car the caliber of the 2009 Lincoln MKS is all present and accounted for: multiple airbags, including side curtains, stability control, and so on. While the 2009 Lincoln MKS has not been tested, the Ford Taurus on which it is based scored very well in government crash testing, earning five stars in all four test categories.

Consumers could also consider the Lincoln's optional adaptive cruise control a safety feature, as it helps to maintain a safe distance from traffic while engaged.

The Ford/Microsoft SYNC system also encourages safe, hands-free operation of Bluetooth phones and hardwired MP3 music players.

The option of having real-time access to weather through the Sirius system can also help drivers steer clear of dangerous weather (or toward it if one happens to be a storm chaser).


The 2009 Lincoln MKS provides a strong, safe environment for passengers, but it hasn’t been crash tested yet.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
