    Wheels for M12 lugs vs. M14

    That definitely looks promising! I'm surprised my Google-foo didn't get me to that page.

  4. Text messaging has stopped on my '17 too. Removing and re-adding the phone (Samsung S7) doesn't help.

    MKz Lug nuts

    Hi jm98. Just as an FYI - I do not believe that the lug nut issue was ever a "Recall". Recalls are generally for serious safety issues. A recall requires all owners of the affected vehicles being notified that their cars have a safety issue which must be corrected, and how to arrange to bring your car in and have your Dealership correct it.. At best, Ford simply issued a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) to it's Lincoln and Ford Dealerships that the lug nuts should be replaced if a customer brings their car in and has an issue with "swollen" lug nuts. While some people may consider the "Recall" versus "TSB" conversation a matter of semantics, the wording makes a big difference. That being said, the Service Advisor should have been aware of the issue or at least run your VIN through the OASIS system to see if there are any outstanding TSB's. However, most TSB's do not extend warranty coverage. Hope this information helps. Good luck.
  7. We also have summer and winter fuel blends. Seems to make no difference in the vibration, just the mpg. I will report any changes. It's still early with this tire/wheel change.
  8. JM... what phone do you have android or iphone? I am running a Kyocera android that is using Android 6.0.1 in my 2014. Once in a while (hasn't done it in about 6 months) I lose the messaging coming up to the MKZ screen. I just drop the bluetooth connection in both the MKZ and in the phone and then establish it as a new phone and my messaging comes back. I believe I see two questions after re-establishing the phone, I think one of them is about messaging, you must answer that properly for it to work.

    GPS Map Update '14 MKZ

    I agree, I got mine via a dealer on ebay back in June. I believe the coat was about $100 for version A9. This was the first time I updated the map SD card since I took delivery of my 2014
  10. I don't see how a change to the wheels would affect this but not sure about the West coast where you are but here we experience changes to the gas mix during winter vs summer. I suspect that this may have a bigger play for the dieseling/vibration effect that I feel as the gas engine shuts down during changeover to the electric motor. I definitely find that regular use of a fuel injector cleaner added to my gas helps the situation. Your mileage may vary.😉
  11. I got 14 MKz and never seen text message working on it. Waiting for 17 MKz Navigation system to drop in prices to swap it out with.

    GPS Map Update '14 MKZ

    These days it's not worth the hassle to copy SD map card for $40k vehicle. You never know if you run in to issues with map application and primary suspect is copied SD card.

    MKz Lug nuts

    I ended paying around $110 for lug nuts replacement that was once a MKz recall and free replacement. I am not original owner but my MKz was originally leased from same dealer and I picked it up as certified pre-owned. What surprise me that dealer was asking $250 for lug-nuts replacement. I argued that this car has been serviced from day one with the dealer. Then service guy kept insisting that no recall on it. I told that I know about recall and read about it. I was going to get printout if he kept insisting but he dropped the price down to just over hundred bucks. I wanted to get it replaced and felt it was reasonable. This wasn't about money for me but I thought the dealer service guy didn't represent Lincoln luxury service experience, if there is one. It felt like a Kia dealership but I am sure Kia treats their service customers better.
  14. Sounds good. Hopefully Ford dealer will not be pushy as Lincoln dealer for other services.
  15. R2D2, I have just replaced my bald 19" michelins with 18" Yokohama's. I changed the wheels only because I was told that I had damage on one wheel. I also wanted a smoother ride with 18" wheels (the jury is out on that one). I kept track of the wheel as rotations we we done and sure enough there was minimal damage to the wheel in question. From what I was told, I expected to see major obvious damage. It was a 3" flat spot on the inside of the decorative side of the wheel. I expected to have the small continuous vibration fixed (which it did) but the vibration at engine shut-off to electric is almost undectable every time. The delay between switchover to electric is now almost immediate, consistantly. And, I am using regular gas again! I am beside myself as to why wheels would cause this problem especially since this wheel has been rotated to the front and back drivers side multiple times. I now cannot wait to get behind the wheel and experience what my car felt like when it was new. I don't hate my car anymore but I don't like Lincoln service not knowing their product. There's lot more to the story than just vibration. Strange fix to this problem but I hope it helps others.

    Wheels for M12 lugs vs. M14

    See if this sheds any light on the question.

    Wheels for M12 lugs vs. M14

    Hi everyone, I have a 2017 MKZ 3.0 and I'm currently in search of a second set of wheels for winter tires. Since they are going to see a lot of road salt and other harsh conditions, I'm not interested in spending a lot of money on current generation OEM wheels. What I have found are 18" previous generation Fusion wheels for a very reasonable price (picture below). The wheel size, lug pattern, offset, and center bore match the current generation Fusions and MKZs. The only difference is the Fusion up to 2016 used M12 lugs where the current generation uses M14 lugs. Do any of you know if these older wheels will accommodate the larger lugs and nuts? Thanks, -Bill

    Oil change at Ford Dealer

    Hi jm98. If you have an oil change performed at a Ford Dealership, they will use the same synthetic blend oil and Motorcraft oil filter/parts as your Lincoln Dealership. The amount of oil is whatever is listed in your Owners Manual in the maintenance specifications chart (and whatever amount your Lincoln Dealer was using). To make sure the correct amount was used, always check the oil level yourself, after having an oil change performed. Good luck.
  19. The mirror just pops out. Start from the top and work your way around. Pull gently. Hope it works for you.
  20. Looking to change from Lincoln dealer to Ford dealer for future synthetic oil change on my 14 MKZh. Assuming it's same engine as 14 Fusion Hybrid. Anything to lookout for as far as amount of oil, particular parts such as oil filter and so on...?
  21. late to the thread - what the method for getting that passenger mirror off? angle it and pull from the outside? top? i've seen both on youtube at this point.

    Sensor Screen

    Hi Chris. I have two myself. That's why I asked, to make sure it was not a typo...and for warranty suggestion reasons. 🙂 Keep us updated and good luck.

    Sensor Screen

    Bringing it in for an oil change. They can look at it. I was just wondering if this has happened to someone else. Also, I have a 13 and a 17. Can't fit both in my bio. Otherwise, I would TELL THE WORLD!

    Sensor Screen

    Hi Chris. Your post states you have a 2017. Your bio information states a 2013. I don't recall if you've mentioned previously whether it is still within the 4 year, 50,000 mile Bumper to Bumper Warranty, or an extended warranty? You can try a SYNC master reset, but don't know if that will affect the perimeter sensing system. Assuming it is within the Bumper to Bumper Warranty, you should make a service appointment and have it properly diagnosed and repaired. I would also recommend taking a video next time it happens. In this way, you can show the Service Advisor and Techs the video, to avoid the dreaded "Could not replicate customers concern" wasted service visit. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Sensor Screen

    This has happened 2 times since I got my 2017 Zh. This pops up and there is no way to get it off the screen unless I restart the car. I can't do anything with the screen cause this blocks out everything beneath it. Ideas?

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    The police finally have the hit and run driver of the truck. Now to pursue justice. I won't go too much into detail, but the driver will not be escaping their crime.
