She has a no pressure approach and a Can Do attitude...WoW. I am so glad I met her. Go see her for your next car purchase. I so glad I did!

This car is perfect for my large family. It drives great and provides me with a sense of safety. There is so much room in the back.

Great handling and riding car, but then it's a Lincoln. It has a CD player in it, which was a main consideration. The stereo is fantastic with 3 extra speakers in the front compartment. I'm a long time customer of Lincoln and will continue to be.
super service.knowledge of product,very fair trade in value,,plus the ford f150 was superior to the other brands that i looked at as far as my needs were concerned!!
An amazing car!

What a great vehicle. The technology built-in is amazing. The fuel economy on the hybrid is absolutely incredible. You can hardly tell when it's running on electric or on the gasoline engine. Why this technology does not take off is beyond me!
Great place to purchase a vehicle. Everyone was very helpful and easy to work with. We have bought several vehicles from Watermark. We would not go anywhere else.
Fairly reliable car with a lot of nice features.

The ride quality is harsher than what you'd normally expect from a Lincoln but as a result the car feels very planted and competent with spirited driving. Power delivery is nice through the auto transmission although it is a shame that it doesn't have any kind of gear selecting. You get PRNDL and that's it, no + or -. The car drives quietly but the engine growls nicely under load and it always feels like the car is ready to get moving. The AWD also works wonders in all kinds of weather even with only all season tires. The navigation still works fairly well on road trips and will get you to most places reliably and the THXII 14 speaker stereo is one of the best I've heard in a car and there is an aux jack in the center console. Cooled seats are great on hot days and heated seats are great in the winter. Trunk space is pretty good with the deck height being reasonable so loading and unloading is easy.
All this said I've had some expensive problems with it: The transmission cooler lines burst within a few months of buying it at about 120k miles. The fuel injector on cylinder 2 would get stuck shut when the car was restarted after having warmed up (it would drive perfectly fine as long as the engine was allowed to cool all the way down) causing a heavy misfire and limp mode. Finally the bearings on the rear driveshaft for the AWD failed at about 140k miles after a year of making a whirring noise. The driveshaft was a $1100.00 job and the part is only made by Ford, there is no aftermarket for it. The car drives less lively without the AWD so I chose to repair it anyways and supposedly the driveshaft was updated because a small percentage of MKZ's had the same problem.
Watermark Ford Hyundai in Marion IL is the best place to buy a new or used vehicle. Joseph Biermann was very knowledgeable and professional throughout my buying experience. I purchased a New F-150 and Joseph made the process as simple as answering a few questions to figure out what I needed in a vehicle, signing the papers, and then driving away in my new truck! Go see Joseph for the best vehicle buying experience!
Very comfortable seating - reason we changed cars

The car is fine - a smooth ride and great seating. We purchased because we already own another Lincoln which we like and which we still have.
Received incredible customer service. Tom Madden, the salesman I dealt with, was so polite and highly professional. Worked with me, answered all my questions, followed up with a phone call to see if I had any further questions regarding the vehicle I purchased. Five + star rating in all areas of service. Thank you Tom!
Most luxurious car I've ever owned

Beautiful car. I love how it handles. It reminds me of my Escape on turning and control, just a lot smoother. Exterior is crazy attractive, as is the interior. Overall, just a beautiful vehicle.
I walked into Marion Toyota at 4pm and instantly greeted by Jerry Rambeau who made me feel I was the only customer there. We chatted that I had seen a Camry was interested as a second time Toyota owner. His attention was totally on my needs, background and how best he could suit my desires in a vehicle. Being a widow and semi retired Jerry got to know me as a friend, person and lastly a buyer. Drove the 2017 Camry, traded my 2013 and took so many office and detailers people into late hours to help me drive off with my Christmas gift to myself. The Christmas spirit is alive and so moving with this facility and my special new friend Jerry Rambeau. Will tell all my friends no one can exceed his qualities. Thank you and GOD bless the kindness of your human heart, Jerry.
Very reliable car

This car meets every expectation we were looking for. My daughter had a massive stroke and the car holds her wheelchair and is easy for her to get in and out of car.
Bought a 2018 Accord Hybrid last year and very unhappy with the vehicle and lack of support Honda provided. Traded it in for a Lincoln MKZ and the ride is night and day in favor of the Lincoln. What a comfortable ride with every amenity you could possibly want. I got the Hybrid and love it!
From the moment I first saw the Continental on the turntable at the 2016 auto show I knew I had to have one.
Had to wait until someone else took the initial depreciation on one of the first 2017s to be able to afford to make it happen.
Acquired mine 10 days ago and I’m completely blown away by Ford’s flawless execution of this awesome vehicle. Every day spent behind the wheel it impresses me in some new unexpected way.
So glad to see this amazing machine get the recognition it deserves w the recent #1 rating in the luxury category - if that doesn’t impress you, let me remind you of a couple of “slightly” more expensive sedans it beat out for those bragging rights: Mercedes S Series, BMW 7 series, etc.
And did I mention I get 25 mpg on the highway burning REGULAR fuel w its nimble 335 hp twin turbo EcoBoost V6??
Go back to American luxury and buy a stunningly beautiful Lincoln Continental - you will NOT be disappointed
I think this car is great in every way, I just hope it holds the test of time and wear and tear. So far this car has been great the suspension is amazing bumps are gone over very smoothly and lightly. This vehicle has tons of power and the awd makes it that much better. I had a Lincoln LS this is a very big upgrade that was well worth it.
Great car for the money with all the bells and whistles ahead of the time, features on my 2011 are now on the newer cars in 2019 heated front and back seats ac seats in front all and all a very good car..
Just bought the third vehicle of my adult life here. Everything went great, the entire staff was helpful and welcoming. Derrick Hobson was our salesman, he did a fantastic job. He was very friendly, informative, and was able to answer all questions we had! Even helped me set up my phone with the android app for the car. Will definitely do business here again
I love my MKZ

This car is my style, sleek, elegant, conservative, fit for The FLOTUS. It has plenty of leg room in the front and back. I love my air condition and heated seats. The back up sensory and camera make it safe me. This car has many luxury features and the best sound system.
