This is my first Ford purchase. Previouly I owned 3 Buick Riverias. I am very pleased with all tne new technology offered in the MKz. Thus far my chief complaints are I find the width of front seats about 2 inches too narrow and the engine sounds too loud,like a 4 cyl. I suspect the engine sound is the result of the fan blades on the engine. Very annoying>>>>
The technology and ride and ride are supera.
Lighted igintion switch,balanced trunk hood and o/s passenger's mirrow that assits with backing.
Having owned 2 Lincoln town cars previously, I was disappointed with comfort of seats and ride. Road noise very annoying. Lacks the quiet, lush ride I was used to. Poor use of storage space on front doors. Needs indentation on truck to raise and lower it. Trunk could be deeper.
Exterior body design, headlights, and navigation system.
I've been driving lincolns since 1959.My last car was a Lincoln.The 2009 MKZ is NOT a Lincoln It is a Ford. I would suggest that anyone considering this car should look at a Ford Model,and save between $5-$10 thousand dollars.
The MKZ drives well, is comfortable, and gets decent MPG. However, many gremlins have popped up over the last 2 months....2 broken trim pieces, replaced weather stripping due to wind noise, and multiple hard to isolate squeaks and rattles have dropped my opinion of this car down several notches. One thing to consider: Lincoln is till Ford and unfortunately you don't get stellar service due to this fact. Like the drive, not sure I'll keep it due to lots of time spent in the shop due to annoying minor issues.

improve the quality of interior and provide service appropriate for an entry level luxury car....
