    Devin's 2014 MKZ

    Nice work, Devin. Looking good. I'm surprised that you had time to do this during tax season.😋 I guess you're not selling the car.

    3.0T Performance Modifications

    There should be more info on the Ford Fusion Forum and 2G Fusions. Same powertrain, more modders than here.

    Rodents seem to prefer Honda's wiring. So much so that Honda released an anti-rodent tape wrap for wiring: https://www.collegehillshonda.com/product/4019-2317.html It has mixed reviews on Amazon.

    Rim Corrosion

    That confirms my suspicions that a 2017 was too new to have corrosion on the rim and that something else was going on. Yes, OE wheels are absurdly expensive. That's why I take the factory tire/wheel insurance. It paid for itself on my previous MKZ and my daughter just made back the cost with her Escape when she needed a new tire and wheel. But I digress. I had cosmetic damage on a wheel repaired by a wheel repair place and they did an amazing job. OTOH, I had a cracked wheel that couldn't be safely repaired. Some cracks that don't affect the structural integrity of the wheel can be repaired. It depends where the crack(s) is and the size of it. The technician will let you know. No reputable outfit will risk the liability of fixing a wheel that isn't roadworthy. When they rejected mine, they didn't even remount the tire to ensure that I wouldn't drive on it. Good luck. I hope it's repairable. If not, the above suggestions are good ones. BTW, the wheel repair places sometimes have good used wheels in stock or have access to them.

    Dash Does Not Line Up With Door Panels

    Ha! I've been a "Zaniac" for many years. Simply the best. I've got 4 layers on mine: Z-AIO, Z-2, Z-CS and Grand Finale. It doesn't need all that, but it's addicting.😎

    SiriusXM subscription offers?

    I don't remember when that started either but in order to qualify for the 6 years of Traffic and Travel Link, the vehicle must be equipped with factory navigation. I also still get NY metro area traffic and weather on Sirius channel 133, one of the few stations of its kind left. Frankly, the traffic info on WAZE is more up to date.

    Rim Corrosion

    I have a 2017 Sport with 15K miles as well. It's a lease, so I have it since new. There's no corrosion at the rims (or anywhere else on the wheels). Do you know the history of the car? When they cleaned off the corrosion, did they also apply sealant? What did the valve stem have to do with this issue? I don't think you'll get anywhere with warranty coverage on this unless there's a specific manufacturing defect. The warranty excludes environmental causes. Still, this is unusual on such a young car. There may be something else is going on here aside from normal corrosion. I'd certainly complain about it when you go to the dealer. You could also call the Lincoln Concierge for starters.

    Power folding mirrors

    Did you read the entire thread? https://lincolnmkzforum.com/topic/1283-power-folding-mirrors/?do=findComment&comment=11218

    What’s your next car?

    Yeah, it's kind of cramped in the back. I haven't seen in person yet to determine how bad it is. A guy in my Lincoln LS club has a G80 V8 and he's pretty happy with it. They do have a Sport version but it's a porker. Almost 4700lbs.

    What’s your next car?

    I was excited about the Stinger as well. Now that I've read a few long-term reports, not so much. There have been some first-year model issues. Car & Driver. Every report I've read has complaints about rattles and creaks from the hatch. Maybe these issues will be addressed in newer models. I think I'd prefer the Genesis G70 anyway. Several hundred pounds lighter and a shot at a better dealer experience.

    Will that be on the 3:10 to Yuma?😋 I'll be heading to AZ (Gilbert) in a couple of weeks myself. Enjoy the weather.
