ASE Parts Specialist and Mercedes tech retired.

ASE Parts Specialist and Mercedes tech retired. 2016 mkz 3.7 now with 60k miles. Throttle position sensor went south. Part of the throttle body. Simple job. Only issue I’ve had. Don’t understand why there is no front windshield chrome strip. Almost looks like it starting to delaminate ! Hmm Luxury car with no window trim odd I think. 3.7 pretty fast handles good. Low in front scrapes often

Sleeper luxury and fuel economy choice

One year and 23,000 mines after buying a used 2016 MKZ with 72,000 miles on it (four previous owners), I can say that I like just about everything I've experienced. I do a lot of highway driving and have made two MI-FL round trips; gas mileage is 29.5 and my bad back doesn't complain afterward. Two minor quibbles: Low ground clearance means you have to watch parking blocks or you'll scrape the fenders and the infotainment system's touch-screen virtual buttons aren't terribly responsive. This is the best-looking of the 30+ cars I've owned and I get compliments at the car wash from other customers on the color (white platinum). Maintenance costs have been reasonable and I've had no nasty surprises, nor had my MKZ left me stranded on the side of the road. If I were shopping today I'd buy this car again.

Engine issue 2016 Lincoln mkz

Bought a 2016 Lincoln MKZ about less than 4 yrs ago. I am at 77656 miles. I took it to two auto shops both stated that it needs a new engine? The coolant is leaking into the engine? I kept up with my matenance too. I read there is a call back on earlier ages, but not on the 2016. I also read this on some other 2016 after reviewing more regarding my same issue. This is not right that there is no help with this year and I hope others complain with same issues as Lincoln should do something about it.

What planet are they test driving on?

I’m reading about low ratings from other sources. DONT BELIEVE IT! I just decided to buy one, and my 2016 Mkz is fast, luxurious, comfortable and well put together. I bought a 2016 c it was the last year of the front winged grill style. The 3.7l @ app 22 mpg/city depending how I drive it, is a little lower mpg; but this car is a head turner! Never been happier with a car buy.

CPO Lincoln good value in luxury vehicle

Buying a 2-year old MKZ coming off lease allowed me to afford a luxury vehicle. And getting it Certified Pre-Owned gives me some peace of mind with its extended warranty. Has met expecations. Ventilated seat motor was replaced under warranty, that was only issue with this car.

The best looking car I’ve ever owned!

This car has met all my needs. The stylish exterior to the bright interior. I have always wanted a Lincoln car, and when this model first came out, I told myself, “I need to have this vehicle”. And I was finally able to buy one with just 30k on it. Wow! Amazing car! I will definitely do all I can to keep it as long as I can. Great job! Lincoln!
