    Auto Climate Control & Air Conditioning

    If the AC is not lit (on), lowering the temperature will not turn the ac on. I just tried it. Pressing the AC or AUTO button will turn it on.
  3. I don't prefer the blacked out look on a Black car either, but it would probably look good on a Crystal Copper, Rhapsody Blue, or maybe Magnetic Gray MKZ. I like some type of contrast on a vehicle, chrome on a black car is a necessity, IMO.
  4. I'm not sure how this was all completed, but my local dealer has a brand new, murdered out 2019 MKZ inside the showroom. I assume it was all done with some vinyl & powder coating. If I am out that way anytime soon, I'll check it out. https://www.lincolnofparamus.com/new/Lincoln/2019-Lincoln-MKZ-0ca2eba20a0e0ae9744ea1ff6ca234cd.htm?searchDepth=6:40

    Ford Fusion production extension.

    Well, it's official, the Fusion Sport is dead, no mas, finished. The 2020 Order Guide is out, and it's not included, errr, I mean Deleted.

    Ford Fusion production extension.

    Well, that's the Fleet vehicle brochure. So maybe the Fusion Sport is not available for fleet purchase, but will still be available for consumers. But it is not selling great, discounts are huge to get them off the lots now, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's gone. I can almost guarantee that the MKZ will keep the 6 speed trans until the new model arrives, like 99.996%.
  7. My 'A' came off early on from the AWD badge. It was so sharp that the microfiber towel would catch the pointed edge and popped it off. So I remove the 'WD' and am now hiding 50 hp. Get it?

    Ford Fusion production extension.

    I saw that information earlier on BOF. I assume since they build the Fusion and MKZ in the same plant, I guess the current MKZ will stick around until a new Lincoln sedan is introduced.

    My first Lincoln

    The MKZ should be around through 2021 at least, could be longer. Let's hope so. Congrats on the new ride, it's a great place to spend some time. Welcome aboard.
  10. I have high expectations on the longevity of my MKZ. I plan on driving it for at least another 10 years, and probably longer.

    MKZ Seat movement/noise (TSB)

    I had noticed what I felt was a shifting of the front seat when, let's say, whipping around a corner. It only feels like a very small shift (Very small) to either side, depending on the direction of the 'G-force'. It's not an everyday occurrence, but I do notice it from time to time. I thought it couldn't be really happening, but then I came across a TSB on the issue. The remedy is certainly a low tech one for sure. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this in their vehicles? It affects 2013-2019 MKZ, as well as a bunch of other Lincoln and Ford vehicles. I guess I'll mention this to the dealer when I have my speaker replaced soon. TSB- 18-2361 MKZ Seat .pdf

    Intelligent Access? (not really...)

    It's kind of like having the TPMS sensors. Just because some people can't maintain their tire pressure without some type of warning lights , we all have to have these tire pressure sensors in our damn tires. Some people can't remember to shut their car off , so now we have these 'reminder honks' thanks to them. Some people simply don't deserve to own and drive a car.

    New Brand to me

    Alright, alright, alright. Congrats and Welcome Aboard.
  14. Well, it's been exactly one year of owning this car, and I definitely am happy with my choice. I brought in in to the dealership last Tuesday for an oil chance and the Annual Detailing. And damn, when I finally picked it up yesterday, which was exactly one year to the day that I first drove it home, the car was so clean that it had that same brand new look to it, it was absolutely spotless, inside & out. I could have picked it up on Thursday, but it was raining and the awesome parts service woman said there was no need to pick it up in crappy weather. Friday was a workday for me, so I picked it up on Saturday. The only issue I've had in the year, is a current blown speaker in the passenger door, causing a small vibration, and is on order now. I am hoping that this car is as rock solid as my 07 Fusion was. Super clean Z The trunk carpet had evenly directional vacuum marks, like a baseball field. My loaner was a brand new 2019 MKZ, and I was the first driver to use it. Nothing was set up, I had to do it all, Audio, clock, and all the menu options. It was a total opposite of mine, white on white, 2.0 Reserve I, with 14 speaker Revel system. It had Sync 3 Version 3.3, which gives you a choice of display background colors, well 2 shades of 2 color options anyway. I never understood why we don't have a choice of background colors at all, give me a damn color selection already, let me match the ambient lighting.

    SiriusXM subscription offers?

    I agree with you guys on Sirius quality, it's pretty low overall, with some channels compressed more than other channels, but none sound really good. I mainly listen to my music on my Ipod Touch, which sounds awesome on most of my music. Some live performances that I've downloaded almost make me feel like I'm there at the concert, and I do crank it up. That's probably why I have a blown speaker in my passenger door, new one is on order by the dealer, waiting on it due to a delay in delivery. But sometimes I just want to hear something other than my own music, and the FM selection (HD channels too) here is a joke, which I really can't understand being that I have NYC radio stations here. So once in a while i go to Sirius for some tunage, and since it's cheap I'll likely keep a subscription.
