    I traded in my 12.7 second '17 MKZ that was my favorite color burgundy velvet for a brand new 2020 pearl metallic white. Both have the 3.0 AWD twin turbo but the new one has every option except for heads up display and panoramic roof, I did get the moonroof though. I wanted to keep the '17 but the MKZ is dead after 2020 so I wanted to get one brand new while I could. A friend of mine bought my MKZ so I know it has a good home. I seriously wanted the copper burgundy that closely matches the one I had but you can't get the terracotta bridge of weir leather with that color and I'm sick of plain black leather, it's nice but didn't want it this time. So white was it, the Revel Ultima audio system is both awesome and horrible all at the same time. If you have a very good recording it sounds competition levels good, playing the demo that is included in the system blows your mind, then you hear music on the sat radio and it's bleh... too much sounds over processed. Music off the iPod sounds mostly awesome. Is it worth the extra cost with the luxury package, yes. The adaptive suspension, seems no different than without, the adaptive jewel looking headlights are cool and seriously light up the road, the lane keeping is creepy, the adaptive cruise control is the same as I had in my 2013 Taurus Limited except it can stop and go, the massage seats make the seats a little less comfortable than those without, same as in the Taurus except the massage is a lot better in the MKZ, it does as described. The proximity sensors all over the car can drive you crazy when you park in your garage. There is a vibration while driving at 65 plus that feels like a wheel is out of balance so that needs to be checked out and the rear window privacy shade rattles. I hit 1000 miles this week after 5 weeks and mileage is averaging 23, power is excellent of course but I did have boost cut occur once which is very un-nerving. I don't know if I'm going to tune this one or not, the plus of the tune in the last one was an increase in mpg as well as performance, on vacation last year we averaged 32mpg for 500 miles going 70mph. I love the car so far, the dealer better be able to figure out the vibration, I HATE vibrations! 🙂

    A great bunch of posts... Since I started this in May my now 16 month old MKZ has 5550 miles on it - a whole 1000 miles in 4 months! But we can now go to the store for shopping and some restaurants are open and have outdoor seating which we have been enjoying 2 or 3 times a week. Plus, I had 5 stents put in 3 weeks ago for now I get to drive 30 miles 3 times a week for cardiac rehab. Yay me!! Take care all, and drive safely!!

    Hi Loki. Congratulations! She looks great! Best of luck and many happy, safe miles! EDIT - Loki, do you know there is a button on the dashboard to manually turn off/on the "proximity sensors" on an as-needed basis?

    Enjoy it! I turned in my 2017 3.0 for a 2020 as well. Same reason: there won't be any more, although I did come very close to getting a Genesis G70 3.3 Sport. I have the same color interior, which we love. I still don't know why they restrict exterior/interior color choices. If I want a green plaid interior with purple exterior, that's my business. Back in the day, you could get whatever you wanted, no matter how hideous. Mine is Silver Radiance. I've had too many white Lincolns. Silver was never a favorite of mine but this is different. I hope they can cure your vibration easily. I've had it up to 90 and it's vibration-free.

    2019 3.0t AWD / DOES NOT NEED TUNE!

    After 4 months of ownership I really believe you do not need to tune this car. What I’ve done is a drop in K&N air filter, put the car in sport mode and this thing flies. Seat of the pants it feels somewhere in the mid 12 second quarter mile pretty easy. Pulls like a freight train.

    Replacement seat cover - 2013

    Hi mhc. Which seats? Driver (bottom, back, both)? Front passenger (bottom, back both) ? Rear seats. All? If the seat covers are still available, you can order them through your local Lincoln or Ford Dealer's Parts Department, or any online Ford Parts seller. Another option would be to Google "Automotive upholstery installers in my area" and find an automotive upholstery shop in your area. It will be cheaper than buying the factory leather seat covers. I know, I did it for my 2007 MKZ. In addition, keep two things in mind. First...that any factory 2013 MKZ seat covers that are still around may be up to 8 years old already. And leather dries out. Second...if you have an upholstery shop replace the seat cover/covers, you can have them do it in a color/texture matching, high quality vinyl. It will save a lot of money and no one, including you, will be able to tell the difference. I would also recommend Katzkin, but they do not make replacement upholstery for the MKZ. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Weird electrical issue...

    It's great that you have good people at the dealership, and mechanics that take pride and make the effort to repair your car. That makes a world of a difference, and it sure helps when it's all covered too.

    I should add that the car is covered by a Ford extended warranty so these repairs have not cost me anything. Also the local dealership is friendly and professional. I think they are as motivated as i am to get this car repaired properly.

    Correct. You said Drivers Package wheels and those only came in silver in 2017/8. They're also included with the Magnetic Package, which was optional on 2.0s and included with the 3.0 in 2020.

    Hi Teleologist. That is the "19 Fully Polished Black Alloy" wheel, which is included in the Monochromatic Package. I believe it was a 2020 only option package. Good luck.

    Just an update, I'm at 130,770 miles and still driving great! Brake pads still don't need replacement, and haven't had any more repairs required either.

    I purchased my 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid in September of 2016 with aprox 38,000 miles on it for $14,000. I now have 112,000 miles on it. Brake pads were replaced by the dealer prior to my purchase. The only repair it has required was replacement of a malfunctioning Seat Heater Control Module this summer. Brake pads are still good. I live in southeast Michigan and drive it year round. I put Goodyear Assurance tires on it twice now. Got about 50,000 miles out of the first set. Twice they have helped save me from what would have been devastating crashes on Grand River Ave. Both times involved drivers turning left in front of me, requiring evasive maneuvers that I didn't think the car would be capable of. I was incredibly impressed with how the car responded. I have not had any issues with winter driving, just need to go easy on the throttle from a dead stop in icy conditions. My Winter gas mileage is around 37 mpg, and in the Summer I average around 41mpg. I am a proponent of letting my car heat up before driving in the winter. Call me crazy, but I believe in being able to see out of my windows before entering a roadway. I drive with my windows and moonroof open whenever weather allows and use my seat heaters/coolers regularly. I'm not big on using A/C but will run it when it's very hot, with or without my windows down. I drive within 5 miles of the speed limit(5 miles over), and I don't try to Hyper-mile it. I do drive with Forward Vision though, I don't accelerate to red lights, and almost never need to brake except for stop signs/signals and prior to turning.It helps to pay attention to traffic in front of you! I do avoid driving on the freeway when possible and not too inconvenient, but that is purely for my sanity, not because of improved gas mileage. Not crazy about the Sync system, but can navigate it quite easily now that I am familiar with it. Really wish that there was a way to delete the Sirius radio options though. I've owned at least 16 different cars during my 36 years of driving: mainly Fords, a few Mercurys, a Nissan, a couple of Chevys, a Cadillac, a Honda, a Volkswagen, a Toyota, and even a Dodge(lapse in judgement). They were: Sedans, Coupes, SUVs, Hatchbacks, Station Wagons and Pick Up trucks; but my 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is one of my favorites of all time. Probably second only to a 1964 Ford Falcon Futura I owned way back in the late 80s! Would love to hear from other owners that have surpassed 100k and how their mileage and repair history is!
