    2019 Due ?

    Along those same lines, I ordered my 2017 3.0T/AWD in the Select Plus trim level because I did not want the low-profile tires that come with the 19-inch wheels (no moonroof either). I couldn't have ordered this in 2018 let alone 2019. Losing flexibility in configuration will result in losing sales.

    Twin Turbo

    I have the 3.0T with AWD, but a Select trim with 18-inch wheels and no Driver's Package. I was a little hesitant that the engine would overpower the "base" chassis setup (without the Torque Vectoring, sport suspension, etc.) but have had no issues.

    Have my 2018 Reserve 3.0T AWD

    That's my favorite color combination, it suits the MKZ "to a T".

    Have my 2018 Reserve 3.0T AWD

    Congrats! The 3.0T makes this car an absolute thrill to drive! What color combo did you choose, and which wheels?

    2019 Lincoln MKZ Order Guide

    I felt the same way about my '17. I wanted the 3.0T AWD, but not the 19-inch wheels. In '17 I was able to order a Select trim with the engine and wheels I wanted but for '18 the 3.0 was only available on Reserve trim which included the 19s. I understand simplifying the order process, but it forces a customer to take something they don't want, or perhaps makes him look elsewhere.

    I didn't see the white-trimmed seats or the carbon fiber trim mentioned

    How to make voiced navigation commands louder?

    That did it! Thank you so much!
  10. There must be a setting but I can't find it. I can barely hear the navigation voice commands over the radio. Is there a way to make the voice commands louder or to lower the radio volume when the navigation lady is speaking? Thanks very much!

    Absolutely! I have mine just over a year now and I love it more every day. I wouldn't change a single thing about it. The 3.0T with AWD really makes the car!
  12. Absolutely stunning in that color combo! Congrats and enjoy!

    Loose steering wheel recall

    As far as I know they're all built at the Hermosillo, Mexico plant.

    Loose steering wheel recall

    I typed in my VIN and it says I have no recalls. Mine was built in Feb. 2017. Does that make sense?

    Lincoln MKX Loaner

    Brought my MKZ to the dealer for it's first oil change yesterday. I don't like the idea of someone else driving my car so I didn't avail myself of the "concierge" service, but got a loaner vehicle instead - a 2016 MKX Black Label 2.7T with only 6,500 miles on the odometer. Put about 90 miles on it driving out to a client and back. It looked great in black, and the quality of the leather was better than my Select trim MKZ. Power was more than adequate but nowhere near my 400-hp car. It was quiet on the road, but a little noisier than the MKZ. Most noticeable was the feeling of a higher center of gravity which required much slower speeds on highway entrance and exit ramps. I guess I am just more of a car guy than a crossover/SUV guy!
