    Just picked up my MKZ about a week and a half ago. It's the 3.0t AWD Reserve model with the Drivers Package. Has a little over 36k on the odometer. I traded in my 2009 Hyundai Genesis 4.6 for this so the trend shows I prefer fun sedans. I absolutely love this car and the way it drives. The upgrades are coming in time. Just wanted to say hello!

    Be Safe out there

    I was seriously thinking of driving my car from NJ to TX for my June trip, my car needs miles on it. Then I came to my senses, and booked a flight. ✈️

    Sweet ride! The paint looks absolutely brand new. In fact, I first thought it to be a 2020 model. Great find. All the best!

    Hello All, After a 3yr. stint with my 2017 MKZ Reserve, I ultimately decide upon getting another MKZ, only this time around I bellied up to get many of the options I declined on my 2017 Lincoln Reserve model. My 2020 Reserve offers both the Luxury & Elements packages along with the vehicle standard MKZ Reserve features, this as well as the optional 19" chrome wheels. I had been pondering over whether to go for the 3.0 TT motor, but eventually convinced myself on another Hybrid model which had proven itself maintenance-free throughout the past three years not to mention its exceptional fuel efficiency. I definitely feel the Revel ULTIMATE!, (20 speakers) sound system was certainly worth getting, as well as the massaging front seats. The moon roof offered was simply part of the lux package, as I don't particularly feel it's something I will get much use of to any great degree here in Fl. however, the automatic rear window sunscreen on the other hand is definitely a keeper. Ha! Living here in the Sunshine State I opted for the Tri-coat Platinum White exterior paint this time around in contrast to my previous model color Magnetic Grey, with once again the Cappuccino interior. In conclusion, I'm somewhat sorry FORD Motor Co. has decided to move away from producing these sporty luxury sedans to concentrate on SUV's and such, but as they say, "It is what it is". All the best! & as usual, stay safe!

    Another MKZ- (2020) replacement

    Congrats, and it's easy to understand sticking with another MKZ, and a well equipped one at that. Best of luck with it.

    Hi Lee. How cool are you expecting them to get? Even when working properly, the cooled seats (it is not "seat A/C") will generally not get your "butt cold" like an air conditioner. They will cool a warm/hot sweaty caboose, but not make it cold. We obviously can not determine over the Internet how cool they are getting or whether they are cooling properly, so if you think there is an issue with your cooled seats, make a service appointment. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Sync 3.4?

    Once it was confirmed that it was possible to go back to 3.2 or 3.3, I took the plunge and updated my 2019 MKZ Hybrid to Sync 3.4.19274. Took a couple of days to work out the kinks, some notes are below. Vehicle: 2019 MKZ Hybrid Reserve II If you follow the Cyanlabs instructions, it sounds like you only need to install the 3.4.19274 update if your already running 3.2 or above. This is only partially true as some files from the map updated are needed with 3.4.19274, so you can either update from the startup process (which will add a good hour to the time) or create a separate install for the missing packages and perform that (more information on which packages you need below) after or during the 19274 update. Even with the map updates, there is a missing package from the normal Cyanlabs process. This is the updated voice file from 19274 and will prevent some Voice Navigation features from working. The missing file is 5U5T-14G391-CK_1571081000.TAR.GZ and can be added after the update and is for North America (US English, French Canadian and Spanish) only. I don't know what the alternate languages would be, or if they are available. You can add it by creating a new autoinstall.lst file and placing the file above in the SyncMyRide directory of your USB Stick. [SYNCGen3.0_ALL] Item1 = 5U5T-14G391-CK Open1 = SyncMyRide\5U5T-14G391-CK_1571088381000.TAR.GZ Options = AutoInstall The APIM firmware updates are not required on the 2019 models (see one possible exception below) and are only required on the pre 2019 models if you want to add the Wireless Apps, Calm Screen and Radio Logos (not to be confused with Sirius XM logos and seem to be for Europe only). If you have a 2019 all should work. These are my non-updated firmware versions from the 2019 MKZ Hybrid Reserve II. Secondary Boot Loader - GB5T-14G376-AA Strategy - 1U5T-14G374-DA Calibration - 1U5T-14G375-DA ECU Configuration/Sound Profiles - GB5T-14G379-AA ECU Configuration/Illumination Strategy - JB5T-14G379-BA The only 2020 feature I did not see working was the album art in Sirius XM. I saw this working in a demo of 3.4 (https://youtu.be/wxjmmj4Wp0U?t=214) but it does not work on my car. I need to do some additional discovery to see if this is a APIM firmware update, a FORScan mod or an update to the GraceNote packages that are not present. Before with 3.3 I had sporadic Sirius XM channel logos (maybe 1 out of 8 showed), but after the update, all stations in Sirius XM that I checked now have logos. A big improvement there. With Android Auto, I now get the turn information and speed limits on the IPC (with the Hybrid, its the right IPC) when running Google Maps (but not Waze yet). With Apple CarPlay this does not seem to be working. (YMMV) On my MKZ hybrid, I had it configured via FORScan to show the heated and air conditioned seats and steering wheel on the home screen. This is only partially working after the update. The heated steering wheel icon still appears, but not the seat icons. At times, a button appears (but is not able to be pressed) showing the icon for the Power Flow app, so this may be an issue specific to the hybrid models. On a side note, resetting the setting in FORScan to not show the seat and steering wheel buttons, now has the effect that Sync now remembers which screen I was on when I restart, so if I left off in Navigation or XM, that screen reappears when I restart the car. This may be present in previous versions, but I just noticed due to previous configurations. I like it better and will be keeping it this way since the physical seat buttons are always visible anyway. Calm Screen works by enabling the setting in FORScan (7D0-02-03 - X4XX XX) and can be accessed by Settings -> Display and a large Calm Screen button now appears. It can be turned off by tapping the screen. 19274 adds lots of new Navigation commands that will not work without all the correct packages aligned. In fact, some previous navigation commands will not work without the correct voice files. If you go into the Bezel Diagnostics -> APIM -> IVSU Versions, you should have the following versions and can download and install any missing ones (or use from another package): 5U5T-14G381-CJ 5U5T-14G381-CK 4U5T-14G423-CA 4U5T-14G421-CAB 4U5T-14G422-CAC You can now also use apps (Waze, Pandora, IHeartRadio, Sirius XM) wirelessly (no longer USB tethered). Waze works this way with Apple, but not Android. I do not know if this is APIM firmware restricted, but I think it is. My FORScan changes are all working as expected, with the exception of the APIM based one I used for the seat icons on the home screen.
