    Traded in 2017 MKZ Select for 2020 MKZ Reserve

    I had a 2017 MKZ Select 3.0 AWD that also had that vibration at exactly 64 mph. My solution - seriously - was to go either 63 or 65 mph, and there was no vibration. It was that mph-specific in my car! As much as I LOVED that car - and I did! - when the lease ended in April of this year I just didn't want to get the same car again. I ended up, and am very happy with, a 2020 Dodge Charger AWD.

    My 2020 leasing saga

    It looks great. How would describe the difference between the old and new silvers?

    The Other Shoe Drops

    I thought the DP for '17 came with the Carbon Fiber interior trim, which I loved. Mine is the now-gone Select trim level, and I took the "Sonata Spin" aluminum trim package, which was a no-charge option. I'm not a fan of wood trim either.

    2017 MKZ Black Label

    That was my favorite Black Label color combo, stunning! My '17 is Magnetic/Ebony. Only year you could get the 3.0T in the Select trim level, which I took because I only wanted the 18-inch wheels.

    2017 MKZ Black Label

    Congrats and enjoy! I describe my 3.0T/AWD as having 400 very civilized, very well-behaved horses. What color and which interior did you get?

    End of the MKZ?

    To each his own, Jim. I MUCH prefer the look of the '17 to the droopy-nosed '16.

    What’s your next car?

    As much as I LOVE my MKZ, I don't want to get a new car that's the same as the one I presently have. I don't want a Crossover/SUV. The new Cadillac CT4 looks nice but I am not a fan of 4-cylinder engines. I only buy American brand-name cars. I am leaning toward the Dodge Challenger AWD - a big, roomy, V-6 powered coupe with a little attitude;)

    Battery short life?

    I wanted the loaner. Dropped off the car, drove to work in the loaner, and picked mine up the next day. First car I bought at Hassett was a new 1987 Mercury Sable!

    Battery short life?

    Funny, drolds, mine (also 3.0T/AWD) was replaced yesterday at 30 months and 20K miles! Hassett must be having a run on MKZ batteries;) I got a ruby red '17 MKZ for a loaner. You?

    So..how do these lease?

    Congrats! I love the color you chose. You got a fine deal, but more importantly, you are going to LOVE your beautiful, smooth-riding, comfortable, luxurious MKZ! Here's mine:

    So..how do these lease?

    Being a Ford stockholder qualifies you for X-Plan pricing also. There is a holding period requirement.

    So..how do these lease?

    I am 28 months into my 36-month lease so what I have to tell you is ancient history but my $47K sticker price 2017 3.0T AWD leased at $450/mo., 10,500 miles per year, with $2K down. This MKZ is my favorite car ever, and I attribute that to the 400-horsepower twin-turbo V-6 under the hood. It makes every single mile an absolute blast to drive!

    Wheels on mkz 3.0 awd

    I have a 2017 3.0T AWD in the Select trim level with the standard 18-inchers. To me they are among the nicest no-extra-cost wheels around, in polished aluminium with dark-painted pockets. Most other cars' standard wheels are dull looking silver-painted.

    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.
