MKZ

by from 37321 on November 15, 2011

The longer I own it the more I like it. It looks good, is comfortable and get good gas milage for a luxury car.

Just a very pleasant car to drive and ride in. Acceleration is great. Reasonable gas milage. Super quiet.

2012 MKZ - A disappointment

I have had the Lincoln MKZ for about 7 months. My previous car was a Cadillac SLS (2003). I thought I was getting high end but I am disappointed with the interior head room. I have to maneuver my way in and out of the car to avoid bumping my head. The noise from the heating and a/c makes it unpleasant especially on the highway - I have to turn the radio volume high. The bluetooth functionality is horrible... even when I shout, I can't be heard on the other end. The headrest block rear view and are extreme awkward and I have to lean forward to avoid them. The door for gas opens when the wind hits it right... Perhaps I'm comparing apples to oranges, but this ain't no Cadillac.

An unususual purchase for us, at least for me. I decided on the 2012 MKZ for a couple of reasons: body style and better than average horsepower with liveable gas mileage. The 2013's are nice but I we were out to purchase a small luxury car, not a luxo-barge or a sporty car. A Classy one--a 4-door. The interior could be a little more appointed and it is marginally nicer than it's sister Fusion Titanium. The psuedo-spoiler on the '13 turned me off. I think a Lincoln looks out of place with a spoiler and with the larger V-6 and horsepower drawing a higher insurance premium. --- 300+ hp makes them nervous. Besides, it'll never see the sustained speed where the spoiler would be effective. The '13 is a beautiful car, don't get me wrong, but the '12 is still kind of boxy and classier-looking. We own a small pick-up and an older Mustang Cobra and this car kind of completes our ownerhip--a grocery-getter, a hotrod and a driver. As a retired couple it fits in perfectly. We love all 3.

Love my Lincoln

by from Evansville, IN on February 12, 2013

This is the first Lincoln I have owned.....I like everything about it! It is very comfortable to sit in and it handles very well on the road.

The entire buying experience was exceptional and we drove the vehicle we bought and also drove the 2013 vehicle. We love the styling inside and out, got the mfg warranty on this vehicle. The ride is quiet and the engine has power. The sound system is premium. We look forward to many more miles of trouble free driving in luxury. We loved the 2013 MKZ that we drove, but chose the 2012 because the price fit our budget better. The 2013 model would have gotten 5 starts.

One of the best bangs for the buck used

I just bought a 2012 Base with Chrome package. Only had 19,000 miles on it and is cream puff. I love it. Considering what you can get these for off lease certified, its a great value you can't beat. Look, if you want a real nice ride with all the nice comfort features and you value reliability; don't reallyr care about the latest and greatest style, this car is for you. I'm a sales road warrior and this fits the bill,especially the wallet, pun intended. You won't come close to touching a mid size luxury Lexus, Audi, Infinity, Caddy or other etc. for what the MKZ gives you for the money. Is just a flat out fine used car for a great price.

One of the big selling points for this (2012 MKZ) was the outstanding reliability ratings. The car is quiet, smooth, and quick. I am a bit disappointed that I only get about 21mpg. My last car was a 14yo Grand Marquis with a V8. The GM got close to 20mpg and it was bigger, older, and had a larger engine. The seats are way too stiff for my tastes, but I do love that they are heated! Ergonomics is my biggest disappointment. I just can't get comfortable. Even at the lowest level the steering wheel is too high and it is at the wrong angle. The side bolsters on the seats hit the back of my arms when I make turns. This car has the navigation system and I love the back up camera! I really don't use the nav very often. Last year I drove through Indianapolis and it had me get off the freeway for about 6 miles which was a completely necessary detour. The audio features are more than adequate with satellite, HD radio, CD player, and a great "Juke Box". Unfortunately, the sound quality is sub-par. You would think with a car in this class that it would have more than just bass and treble adjustments! The sound is a bit to brassy while at the same time the bass is too boomy. Finally, this car seems to pull to the left. I took it in for an alignment and they happily re-aligned it for free. Unfortunately, it still pulls just a bit. I took it back and they said it was within specs and did nothing. That time they charged me $49. I miss my old Grand Marquis. THAT was the best car I ever owned!
