We purchased my wife's 2015 MKZ Hybrid in early 2016 and absolutely love the car with one exception - it has stranded us on numerous occasions. It does this randomly - no problems for many months and then when you least expect it - a dead battery (totally drained). We took the car while under warranty to several dealers on several occasions and of course, they couldn't duplicate the problem. We have replaced the 12 volt battery 3 times (twice at the dealers' expense, 1 at mine). We now carry an older portable battery supply (new automatic - microprocessor controlled) jumper systems only work if your battery has at least a partial charge) so at least we aren't stranded anymore when this happens (although its a pain to get into the trunk without any power). What's unusual about this is as soon as I connect my portable battery supply to the jumper points under the hood and start the car, immediately disconnect the portable battery supply and shutoff the car, I have enough voltage in the battery to hook my automatic battery charger and fully charge the battery. In my experience 12 volt batteries don't charge this fast, although I suppose the hybrid battery could possibly be a factor. This would seem to me to be a software glitch of some kind but who knows - apparently Lincoln service centers do not. I am going to start documenting our problems by checking the status of the 12 volt battery on a regular basis to see if I can figure out what is causing this problem. I'll post any results I find to this thread in the future.
I upgraded my Sync2 to Sync3 back in January, and have been stuck with a heated steering wheel button on the home screen and having to dig through the climate settings to turn on my heated seats. Using DanMc85's spreadsheet and FORScan.org, I was able to get rid of the stupid door honking when closing the door while idling, changing the panic button from one press to two, change the auto turn signal from 3 flashes to 5, and get rid of the heated steering wheel button (don't have that option installed)!! Had to "disable" the power flow app (which I never use) because if you don't, the heated/cooled seats won't show on the home page. Got it disabled, but was stuck with my display splash screen showing a Ford. After 4 tries, it finally got the hint, and stayed a Lincoln. Man, summer is going to be a LOT better without having to dig through the menu to turn on the cooled seats... 😁
I replaced the stock MXM4s with Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus and couldn't be happier with them. Traction is incredible all the way down to -5 F. In the snow, not so much, but that is what the F-150 is for.
After having a 2020 base MKZ as a loaner for a week I'm not a fan of the new sync or I just couldn't figure it out. It didn't have navigation it had ANDRIOD auto which if I had unlimited data which I don't I would never use AND the seat doesn't move back as far as mine does (2016) and the steering wheel doesn't move enough that base Lincoln isn't worth 32k sorry the 2 liter turbo is useless it doesn't save gas and it struggles to cool the cabin
What doesn't work? The Lincoln Way app? It does on my 2016 I have Sync with My Lincoln Touch it has wifi but the app doesn't work thru that it's got to work via the satellite antenna cuz I don't have the Modem set up with a cellular provider
