Very "herky-jerky" starts caused by the transmission or electronic controls. Dealership says its inherent in the new design and and even though they acknowledge the rough ride; they say Ford has not given any warranty repair advise. Therefore, they cant authorize any warranty repairs. They say it's a problem but don't know what to do.... "poor design" i guess. I'm very disappointed and will be looking to trade out of this car soon.
bory style and interior comfort is excellent
fix the herky-jerky starts in the electronically controlled transmission. This is awful and shameful that Lincoln can't do better than this in 2007.
Nice car,good handling however noise insulation could use improvment.Front suspension could be a bit softer.Interior controls are so small they are hard to find and operate.White lighting on instrument panel wash out during daylight operation.In some cases cannot be seen at all.Average MPG on hwy.26
Basic exterior design and some of the interior concepts.Rear seat fold down,pass through.Heated seats.Regular gas.AWD great in the northeast snows.
Revise instr.panel lighting,improve sound insulation,and soften a bit the front suspension.
Over the years (I'm 60ish) I have bought Fords, Chryslers, and Gm vehicules, now my first Lincoln. This car is by far my best car ever. It currently has 22,000 miles and each one of them a total pleasure. It drives like a dream, very comfortable and fuel economy is great. A frequent 1200 mile trip, which includes 200 mile of hilly country roads, I usually average 25.5+ miles per gallon. My only complaint is with the exterior design, the rear lights which are too large.
The 263 horsepower engine which burns 87 octane fuel and delivers excellent mileage
Rear lights, too big, too square. Radio functions, steering wheel control for radio should have scan feature instead of next preset.
I always buy used cars so this was a nice find 07 Lincoln MKZ. The ride is quiet. The engine is so quiet that after starting I have to look at tach to see if it's running. The first full tank of gas I avg 33 mph with about 60% of driving over 50 mph and got 26 mpg. This is great when you only avg 33 mph. It shows you stopping eats gas. The luxury you get with this car is great for this price whether new or used.
Heated and cooled seats, auto opening of windows, sunroof with remote, fold down seats so you may carry long items, radio system with satellite
On rough roads still needs more sound deadner in rear areas. Come standard with daytime running lights
