2009 Lincoln MKZ Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Bought my Lincoln used and got a great deal on it thus my high marks on value. However, would never buy this new because I believe Lincoln could've done better compared to the competition. First off is the trunk problem that many complain about. Poor design - you can live with it though. Second - the interior is definitely more Ford than lincoln and could use some more upscale touches. The OEM Brakes are a bit mushy but replacements improved that drastically. Now the good - car feels solid and handles wonderfully with a nice ride and quiet interior. The navigation and SYNC work flawlessly and make this car a true pleasure. 70K miles and no problems whatsoever.

2009 Lincoln MKZ Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We were happy with our Zephyr, so when the time came we traded for the MKZ. We were happy with it until 3,000 miles (yes, thats three thousand), when the traction control light came on. Dealer changed a sensor, after which the car wouldn't go over 30 mph. We were told they had a bad batch of these sensors, they are on nationwide back order. That was two weeks ago. We have no idea when we will see the car again.


Favorite Features

THX stereo


Suggested Improvements

Stock parts for the cars you build so you can repair them when they break.

Review

After reading Edmund's review, the Acura TL, Lexus ES350 & Maxima, mentioned in review, all cost more and require premium gas. The MKZ does not, trunk is larger in MKZ too. It is great, change the oil, put gas in it and enjoy the ride. Fun to drive, quiet to ride in, good radio and blue tooth adapts to your cell phone. I am well pleased with car. Air condition seats are really fantastic in the South, in the summer! You just wouldn't believe it unless you try it!


Favorite Features

Plenty of power to pass, blue tooth phone, cruise control features, back up alarm, quite ride, low wind & tire noise, heated & cooled seats and puddle lights. You can set outside mirror and seat position for 2 drivers.


Suggested Improvements

Remote trunk to actually open trunk instead of just unlocking it. Also would be nice to have something to grab to close the trunk. Adjustable pedals would be a nice.

Review

Upgraded from a 2008 Fusion to this Lincoln. This is a nice car.....period. Plenty of power, excellent road feel, comfort, AWD excellent in snow, stereo rocks.! Wish gas mileage was better (avg 21), but can't keep foot out of gas. NO complaints so far.


Favorite Features

Heated/cooled seats, NAV system, 3.5V6


Suggested Improvements

Make Lincoln stitching in headrests standard. 18" wheels / tires. More power.
