Hey there, thanks for writing in about your 2007 Lincoln MKX. Unfortunately, without hearing the noise or conducting a few tests firsthand, it is not possible to determine the cause of your concern. Since you say you are hearing the noise under the car, it could be a problem with the suspension or brakes. If you want to have this checked, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the vehicle's noise and help you move forward with repair.
