    2017+ maps

    Curious on the map software on the 2017 and after models. To the best of my knowledge Lincoln did away with the SD card updates. So where is the map info on our systems? Is it live and current all the time or it is hard coded at the factory and you have to pay for yearly updates via cd or dealer flash. Have found that sometimes it cannot find some places where Google nails it in seconds
  2. Would say that if you like the 4cyc go for it. If thinking about the 6 I would go for a 2017 and get the upgraded 3.0 twin turbo. More powerful than the 3.7 and better mpg. I average between 22 and 23 with my 3.0t driving 75% hwy. good luck on any choice. If and is not important to you you may even consider the hybrid, 40 mpg

    Just want to say thanks!

    Do it!!.....Get the mkz. Same color as mine and I love it. Am sure the Continental is amazing but I cannot get over those spaceship looking seats and the rear end is not my cup of tea.

    Oil change price, impressive

    Lincoln is to classy but it would be a great ad if they put up service charges to remind buyers of other makes what it cost to maintain once free service runs out.
  5. Seems every few days I get reminded what a great choice I made buying a Lincoln. Emailed my dealer today inquiring how much an oil change costs. I am due for my first one in about 3000 miles. my great sales guy replies that an oil change, wash and tire rotation is $55. I was shocked on what a great bargain this is. My Mazda I had befor this was almost 80 for this are service. Again Lincoln proves that you can have a true luxury car without the crazy upkeep cost that is typical with most premium brands. Know people who drive bmw and audi who would kill to get a simple oil surface under $250.

    Haha......No kidding. While not economy priced a year old Lincoln is one of the best bargains out there. I paid $15K less than what it went for just one year ago new. Lincoln CPO's are very good deals. Was happy to let the previous owner take the big depression hit.

    Metal chrome trim cleaning suggestions

    Awesome, thanks for the tip. will get some!
  9. Anyone have any suggestions on what to use on the metal chrome trim around the windows? Although very new it looks like my trim has some age imperfections. Would like to clean it up and wax. So far soap and water, detailer spray and spray wax have not helped improve its appearance. Want it to look smooth and brite

    Regular vs Premium Gas

    Just for fun I filled with mid-grade 89 to see if there would be any difference from 87. I feel no performance difference however have noticed that so far about half way though the tank and I am getting 1mpg less. Not exactly scientific of course but so far I notice no gain in spending the extra $4 or $5 per tank for the slightly higher octane #

    3.0T turbo?

    My understanding is that the twin scroll turbos like mist modern ones come on between Low 2000 to 3000

    2017 3.0T AWD mpg update

    Figured it would be a useful bit of info for those considering mpg when choosing which engine to go with. My driving habits are about 85% hwy @ about 75 to 85 mph and the remaining being city driving. After one and half weeks or so am averaging 22 mpg with a high of 23. When I was doing city only the first few days was at about 16 to 17 mpg. Of course we all want the highest mpg we can get but all things considered I am happy over all with 22. It is after all 400hp and awd. In comparison my fwd 2013 Mazda cx-5 was giving me 27 mpg. So for the modest loss in mpg I think it is more than a fair trade. Especially fair considering that we are using 87 octane. After doing the simple math our 6 twin turbo cost nearly the same to drive as the sea of turbo 4 bangers out there that produce less power and require premium gas at almost a buck more a gallon or $15+more per fill up. Not going to lie, I was kinda hoping for 25 mpg but at 22 I am above the combined windows sticker estimate and I have never enjoyed driving a car so much.
