  1. The dealership completed my first oil change on my 2016 at just under 9000K miles in mid-March. I checked the oil last week at about 10,800 miles and was surprised how low it was, see the picture for reference. I was also a bit surprised how dark it was as well. Even before the oil change it was never this low or this dark. Took it to the dealer and not surprisingly, I was told this is normal. (I'm already skeptical of the dealership for other reasons) This seems a bit off to me and the last two cars I owned (one of which was an Ecoboost Ford) never went thru oil this fast. In fact, I've never owned a car in 25+ years that burned thru a quart of oil in 1800 miles. I have the 2.0 engine and it runs fine, no smoke or burning smell and no drips on the garage floor, so i'm stumped. Anyone else have a similar experience or words of wisdom on this?
  2. The rear speakers in my 2016 w/ the THX system are almost inaudible when you have the fade settings set to "0" or the mid-point on the adjustment screen. Since it was only recently I ever sat in the back when the radio was on, I have no idea if this is how it has always been since I took possession a year ago. You can manually set the fade to where you hear them when listening at a normal volume, so it doesnt appear to be bad speakers. Further, I brought the car into my local dealer for unrelated small issue that turned out to be a fuse. I asked them to look at the speaker issue as well and the dealer explanation was inconclusive. The new service manager didn't have the info on hand when I was picking up the car (after 5 days) and was clearly a non-technical person. She told me they were going to order a new "radio" (her words, !!!) and call me when it came in. That was over 2 weeks ago, haven't heard a thing. Since it took them 4 days to find a blown fuse and come up with this non-diagnosis, I'm really not looking forward to taking it back for something so minor. Overall, this service department has been a real disappointment. That said, has anyone else noticed this in their MKZ? Could it just be how the balance/fade is programmed? Thanks.

    Use of bike carrier/rack

    Does anyone have experience with using a rear-mounted bike rack (see attached) on their 2013 or later MKZ? I'm concerned that the black plastic or composite material on the upper third of the trunk-lid will get cracked due to weight and/or scratched by the clips used to attach the top portion of the rack. The one photographed is listed as a match for the make & model, but In my mind I need a little more assurance. I don't have a trailer hitch, and would prefer not to install one just to carry around my bike. My car has the pano roof so top mount racks are out of the question. Any info is appreciated!
