Lincoln MKZ First Week Impressions

Recommended Posts

That's how I see it too and until they come up with a foolproof facial recognition system I think this is the next best thing.

So, I've had my MKZ for just under a week and 165 miles. I am VERY pleased so far, more than I expected!

I came out of a 3-year lease on a 2014 Cadillac CTS which I loved, but the lack of changes in the '17 vs the '14 led me to the MKZ. I was fully expecting (and OK with) it to feel like a downgrade (my mid-trim level CTS stickered at $58K vs. $47K for the MKZ) but it doesn't AT ALL! The improvements to the MKZ's interior for 2017 are very significant. The Lincoln is quieter than the Cadillac, absorbs bumps MUCH better (CTS had those awful run-flat tires), and feels to have the same turning circle and handling ability in normal street driving. Acceleration is noticeably stronger than the 3.6 V-6 in the Cadi. Style-wise both inside and out the Lincoln is a little more "unique" looking. I really like the pushbutton shifter!

I am absolutely delighted (so far) with my decision to go with Lincoln this time around!

great to hear that all is well with the new Z.........Indeed very quiet which allows just a hint of growl from the exhausts. Love it.

Enjoy

My reserve has 33,000 miles and is as quiet and powerful as the day I bought it. The Lincoln noise cancellation feature is great. I purchased mine as a returned rental model, and it seems to have held up well considering all of the abuse and rough driving a rental car typically gets. Leather seats have help up, handling is still great, and the car looks in showroom condition. If this holds, the MKZ should continue to look good and last a long time!

That's great to hear! I have 4000 miles on mine and don't get to drive it enough, although that's about to change with my new work assignment (135 mile weekly trip up the NJ turnpike). I'm almost looking forward to the commute.
