    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Make the car payments on time, get a secured credit card by putting down about 500-1000 dollars, and if you can afford it, get a $1000 1 year loan from possibly a credit union. Make all the payments. In about 1-2 years, you are back with a decent credit rating.

    I wanted to ask also how fast he was going and why he hit the wall. Did the force of the hit cause him to hit the accelerator? Everybody has done that where you want to hit the brake but just don't. I've been know to panic more than once in my life.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    This happened to my cousin in Fl last year. Guy went around another and hit her head on. Luckily it was just as the light turned green. Guy in a small pickup drove off. He was caught a bit away from scene cause his front bumper was dragging and got caught under the front wheels. Why did he drive off? Illegal alien. No license. No insurance. My cousin wasn't hurt, but she had to pay for a new car. Don't know any other details. And the OP did say coppers got the plate number. As for following the truck? You don't know what may be waiting around the corner. Best to stay out of it and just be a witness.

    Dash Mat

    I'm surprised they don't have a power sunshade for the front like they do for the back window of some Lincolns. Wow. I think I should get out my pad and paper and come up with some plans. $$$

    At least you weren't doing 60. Good thing it was only your car and not your life. People always get pissed at me cause at every intersection I slow down and look every which way just in case. On the lighter side, can I have your sync 3 module? :) (sorry, no smiley emoji)
  6. Heated steering wheel is something you'll wish you had. Remote start in the cold temps, you get to the car and your fingers won't freeze to the wheel. But, at least the cabin will be warm.

    2017 Comparison

    Thanks for that seat suggestion. I did notice when I was checking over the car that some technician had left the LAUNCH code reader connector in the OBD 11 port. The front right tire pressure monitor was faulty. It had no reading on the display. If I do take the 17 out again, I really should just do it without a Beemer salesman riding along constantly talking to me about what Lincolns have.
  8. On my 2013, on the nav screen, there is a small icon in the upper right that is a voice balloon (?). Press that and you should be good to go. It only shows up when you have a destination set. My mistake. That balloon is only for a voice for your current direction. I am curious though if you get anything when you press that.

    Cooling Seats

    Same here. And is the heating/cooling from the whole seat or just the butt?
  11. Ok. I test drove a used 2017 hybrid today. Some things felt different. Hard to really explain. Has anyone made that jump in model years? Anyone noticed any differences? One thing I did notice was the seat controllers. When engaging front/back/up/down, there is a slight hesitation between the time I hit the button (click) and the actual maneuver. The 2013 was instantaneous. Normal for the new model? Just wondering if there are any major changes. Salesman kept saying that if there were any problems, it was still under warranty for a year or two. Not very reassuring. But then, he's selling Beemers.

  13. Just what I thought. (Yeah right. Have nooo clue what any of that means.)

    Cooling Seats

    Well, seems like a heat wave going on in the great Northeast. Forgot I had cooling seats. Works like it's supposed to. No sticky, stinky butt. This car keeps amazing me.

    Battery positive terminal

    Should the positive terminal be covered with something? Mine doesn't have anything. Also, there is something missing off the battery compartment door. One of the clips is broken and it looks like it held something.
