BEST ALL-AROUND CAR I'VE EVER OWNED! ! !

Before purchasing my 2015 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, I was blissfully nieve. I had thought hybrid cars were sloth quick. I had also mistakenly thought that Lincolns were for Old Geezers. . .WRONG ! ! ! Lincoln redesigned their fleet and their MKZ had become their force to be reckoned with. Sexy styling, quick throttle response, luxurious interior styling, with a perfect meshing of every conceivable creature comfort/option. Having enjoyed 40+ mpg with my Hydrid, I became a believer. If anyone is searching for a a car that will surely alter their perspectives in a most pleasant way, do yourself a huge solid, and check out the 2015 LINCOLN MKZ HYBRID (FWD) ! ! TRULY A GAME-CHANGER!

Best Vehicle I Have Owned

I bought the car two years ago (2017) with 24,000 miles on it. It now has 53,000 and I have had zero issues. Quiet ride, sensors all the way around, lane changing sensor, back up camera, etc. Nice leather interior and lighting. Zero problems. Averaging 39 MPG which is great for a vehicle this size. A friend has a Ford Fusion Hybrid (same platform) and he has over 140,000 miles with no issues - including the hybrid battery. I plan to drive this car into the ground!
