    Automatic settings?

    Not sure if this is to what you were referring. Last Settings You can set the climate control to operate using the last climate control settings through the information display setting: Remote Start > Climate Control > Heater–A/C > Last Settings. The climate control system automatically uses the settings last selected before turning off the vehicle Automatic Settings You can set the climate control to operate in AUTO mode through the information display setting: Remote Start > Climate Control > Heater-A/C > Auto. The climate control system automatically sets the interior temperature to 72°F (22°C). In cold weather, the system is set to 72°F (22°C). The heated seats and heated steering wheel are set to high (if available, and selected to AUTO in the information display). The rear defroster and heated mirrors automatically turn on.

    Automatic settings?

    On my 2017, I set the auto temp to 'med'. I remote start the car and let it run for 10-15 minutes. Nice and toasty when I get in. But, when I 'start' the car, seat is heated to 3 lights, and steering wheel heat is 'on'. There are times where I purposely shut those 2 things off when I head in for the night, but they seem to go back to full when I physically start the car. I am assuming this happens because I have the auto feature on. Maybe this happens with certain auto settings. As an aside, every once in a while, if the car is left facing the sun or I have been driving a while and the interior is all warmed up, when I restart after a short amount of time, the a/c for the seats engages. Rare, but it happens.

    Intermittent Check Engine Light

    Well, if you get another vehicle, there would be no reason for me to stop by when I'm down there to compare Zhs and have a look at your broken gas tank cover that you fixed, and have a few brewskis.

    MKC service loaner and damage to MKZ

    Is that Bergey's? When I was originally looking at hybrids, I had inquired several times about vehicles they had. They never would get back to me.

    MKC service loaner and damage to MKZ

    Only my opinion, but it really isn't the kid's responsibility to put it in your garage. Unfamiliar territory for him. I had an aunt way back when who had the shortest garage where only a mini cooper would fit in it. I would have just told him to leave it in the driveway. I was given an MKC loaner last year for a day. Felt uneasy when I drove it. It was quick. Not used to an SUV however. I look down on people as it is without actually looking down on people.

    I went from a '13 to a '17 hybrid. '13 was quieter with regards to road noise. And the '13 has Velozza $80 tires on it compared to the '17 which has Michelin Primacy.

    Hybrid MPG

    What part of NY?

    Any ideas how low (or high) the sensors read? I.e., I'm very fearful of getting too close to the curb on the passenger side and having my wheel hit. Also, the front sensor. Same reason. Some curbs are higher than others and I scraped the bottom of the bumper on one of those high curbs.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    One can look back on their life with regards to every situation, and understand that everything does happen for a reason. Because of this event, you have 'gotten your act together' (not to be meant as you were messed up like me, and I've been to some of the best doctors...) and are on your way to something better. If he didn't hit you, you would be further in debt trying to keep your head above water. I could run off a hundred different things that have happened to me in the past and see that every bad event has caused a good and better event to transpire. Hopefully, the guy that hit you will have something better for him when he gets out. Hoping bad things for him cause he hit you, isn't the right thing to wish for.
  11. Is the change/rotation the same price?
  12. For my 17 MKZh, I am under the impression that Travel Link is supposed to be a 6 year free subscription. I bought the car used. The subscription should be transferable, shouldn't it? I asked the dealer and he said it should be because Lincoln paid up front for the subscription. I have not called Sirius yet. I just would like some input first.

    Sirius Travel Link

    Well, it seems like they extended me for only about 2 weeks. I wanted to check upcoming traffic thru the Travel Link and now it tells me that I have no subscription. Another tease. Maybe I will just call them up and tell them:

    Auto Hold

    Have no idea where to put this post. So this seems to be a good place. Does Auto Hold engage the brakes as if holding the pedal all the way to the floor? I try to always push the 'pedal to the metal' just in case I get rear-ended.

    Auto Hold

    I've gotten used to using it. Just got me thinking cause there was a cop that was killed last week in the area who was hit from behind and pushed into traffic.

    2014 stalling issues

    Hey everybody. There is a girl on the site. Whoopee! (forgive me if there are others) Other than that, I got nothing. But there are some knowledgeable people on this site. I'm sure they can help ya. Welcome aboard and I hope everything works out.

    SiriusXM subscription offers?

    Of course, you could always do the "I just bought the car" and get 3 months free. Change your name and email. I did that on my '13 for 9 months. Got the original 3 months free cause I just bought the car. When the promo was up, changed my name and email address. Told them I bought the car from my roomie. Then, after 3 months, told them I bought it back and used my real name and email. If you want free, you could always do that. Just keep 'selling' your car.

    Sync 3 Screen

    So, last nite I'm driving along as easy as I do. I'm listening to tunes by way of usb. I tap screen to go to 'New Search'. All of a sudden, the album that I was listening to (came to end and told me to browse), started playing again. At that point I had no control over the screen at all. Screen stayed on track listings, but none of the other buttons worked. Screen froze up. Nothing worked. Even the radio buttons beneath the screen, the manual on/off, track change, etc. did not work. Only thing that did was the volume knob. I could, however, change everything from the right side of the instrument cluster. But the screen did not work at all. I do not know if I could change tracks, et al thru that gauge. I did not think about trying as I try to not screw around when driving. This morning, I started the car and all was back to normal. However, I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that the screen takes it's time to boot up.

    Sync 3 Screen

    Thanks for that. However, there is no way I would even attempt it while driving. I've taken too many chances now just changing a station.

    I have not tried a reset yet.

    from prius to MKZ

    Which is what Prius drivers NEVER do.
  22. Chris109

    Who'da ever thought???

    I'll bet that as soon as you get used it driving it, you will soon be looking to getting a newer model.

    from prius to MKZ

    Whenever I'm out and about and end up next to a Prius, I look over and think, "Why would anyone drive around in that thing? One can have luxury along with great mileage." A Prius, imho, is a statement car which says, "I care more than you." Nowhere on a Zh does it state that it is a hybrid except for the "H". And after driving a Zh, one will never go back to a Prius. As for 'hypermiling'; on my 2013, I could go a couple of miles using just electric (that is with no one behind me) and get 999.9 mpg. On my 2017, I can only get 99.9. I lose 900 mpg. Bummer.

    Sirius Travel Link

    Turns out someone re-activated my Travel Link. It was not the dealer cause no one there knew how to do it. I know it could not have been Sirius. Must have been Lincoln when I did inform them that no where did it say that it was not transferable. Either that or they saw that I have 2 Lincolns. So, as of now, I call it a win. I would send out a Thank You to Lincoln concierge, but I do not want to press my luck.

    12V battery upgrade

    Believe it or not, I was serious. I thought I had heard that the remaining stores were closed. But, it will probably be soon. https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/15/business/sears-bankruptcy-hearing/index.html
