Just a few tweaks and this would be and outstanding vehicle. It runs smooth and quite inside and out. I am pleased with it. Tweaks: Arm rest on doors to low for comfort Rear seat head rest in the way of a clear view and unable to remove on MKZH without disassemble of rear seat. Odometer and Trip odometer difficult to read.(Too small) Navigation system could be more friendly to use , as well as, SYNC. Average mpg 38.2 Would like to see improvement in mpg. being a Hybrid. Would I purchase it again,yes.

My 2012 Lincoln MKZ provides me a great ride and it handles very well. I'm not getting the mileage published. I have owned it for 7 months and already have 11,000 miles on it. The best MPG I have achieved on the high way is 39 MPG and I average 34 MPG in the city. The motor kicks in on my car well before 45 MPH even when I accelerate slowly. If anyone has any suggestions on how to achieve better gas mileage, please let me know.

Love this car. It's like having the best of two worlds. The comfort, safety and great MPG. We bought our MKZ in March with 22,000 miles on it and the mileage has been increasing by tenths ever since. The average now since we got it is 38.1. It is so quiet. Has all the options. Love the blind spot warning system. My only problem, I have trouble getting it away from my wife. I had a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr before this. The mileage is about 14 MPG better.

Mileage and Comfort

by from Wedowee, AL on August 11, 2013

I got 46 miles per gallon on my last tank!!! I was soooo surprised I averaged it twice. But you have to baby it to get this good mpg. Drive 55 and don't gas it on take offs. Let it use the battery as much as possible ( don't gas it). I live in a small rural town so this is an average of hwy and city miles. My husband and I look at it as a game, how good of a mpg can we get. I can't believe I can drive a medium size car which is extremely comfortable and get this great mileage. I also love oil changes every 10,000 miles. I have only one complaint with the car , the trunk size is kinda small due to the amount of space the batteries take up. This is an easy sacrifice to make for comfort and gas mileage!!!!!! :)

This is a sleeper car from Lincoln. It's essentially the Ford Fusion Hybrid, which got great reviews from all the car magazines and review sites, but with a very upgraded interior, including all the bells and whistles: Bridge of Weir heated and cooled front leather seats, BLIS cross traffic warning system, side traffic warning system, excellent back up camera, rain sensing wipers, satellite and HD radio, and best of all, 41 mgp in town (I am actually getting about 43) and 36 mpg on the highway (I am getting closer to 38 mpg). The newer 2013 model will likely be about $10,000 more expensive similarly equipped; it will be a sexier design, but for a basic entry level luxury car with excellent efficiency, super quiet ride and very good handling, this can't be beat.

I am SO happy with my Hybrid Lincoln!! Now I have only had it less than a month but I have wanted a Lincoln my whole life and I am NOT disappointed. The ride is luxuious. I just took my first rode trip and my gas milage was outstanding! I got 33.8 mpg on the highway. It says I could get as high as 35. I bought the car on the 1st of Sept, been driving all over town, and did not fill up again until the 15th also including a 6 hour trip of 318 miles away!!! I did use cruise control set at 72 mph. The book says it take a little while for the car to get used to your driving habits. Also passing was NO problem. Its a Hybrid, never driven one before this and also a 4 cylinder but it gives you power when you need it. I love all the features..heated and cooled seats, SNYC.(I did not get anything extra) I listened to my iphone music all the way with no problem. It grows leaves and flowers for good driving habits and I see the first flower starting to bud on my dashboard and that is SO exciting. I did buy the bumper to bumper warranty being how this is a Hybrid; not sure about the cost of repair of such a thing so better safe than sorry. So Very smooth ride, fantastic features!!! My husband is VERY impressed. He was extremely comfy in the passenger seat. He took a nap, kept his air conditioning controls set the way he wanted (dual controls). So, if you are considering this car, you will NOT be disappointed.

We have had this car for 6 months and it has exceeded our expectations. Driving carefully we are averaging overall 41.2 MPG and I have seen as high as 47.7 on the highway, this in a fully loaded luxury car. My wife uses it as her daily driver and loves all the features, especially SYNC which is perfect for her use. We get many compliments on the car. At a time when gasoline prices are soaring, this is the perfect luxury vehicle to own.

I dumped a 2011 Equinox and lost 1k, but it was worth it! Equinox = 17 mpg, MKZ 35 mpg average so far (mixed hwy/city) The interior is lacking (a tiny bit) in luxury but I knew this up front. My only issue is storage room inside and trunk, I wish they would have opted for a little more sheet metal, but that’s where they all are going. It is close to my old 2002 Caddy DTS.

The more I drive this Lincoln, the better I am liking it. However, still trying to figure out if the hybrid will deliver on its stated city/highway MPG. Not supposed to kick into engine mode until the speed of 47. Well, that's not the way it's working out. Upon checking the "gauge" on the dash, it appears the engine is being used well before I hit the 47 MPH figure. Hoping that changes over time. Otherwise, it's more quiet and comforable than I thought. Truck is small but the battery has to go somewhere.

Worth the money, now that gas prices increased

Love the champagne color. No one would ever know it's a hybrid. So I get excellent mileage and I will feel even better as gas prices keep on going up. Don't hesitate to buy a hybrid. I also get the feeling of luxury because of the color and the beautiful and unique tail lights. Don't care much for the looks of the grill work in the front. The price I paid was reasonable, since my Toyota Avalon cost me almost as much six years ago. I like the idea of the maintenance free (no cost) warranty, including oil changes, for the next 50,000 miles'
