2nd American Car in 38 Years
By Bob H on
2010 Lincoln MKZ 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
After 35 years of buying Mercedes, BMWs, Jags etc, I wanted to buy American in '07. My thoughts of the 07 mkz after 3 yrs: /no service problems whatsoever as compared to multiple problems with above mentioned cars /euro cars needed tires after 23-25k miles. got 45k+ in MKZ /no ugly, hard to clean BRAKE DUST on wheels /REGULAR gas! /ride not as smooth as cars mentioned /seats not as comfortable /not as much fun to drive NOW, my initial thoughts on the 2010: /seats more comfortable /piping around seats have TOO MUCH CONTRAST and detract from look, except for gray leather where piping almost matches /smoother ride & more fun to drive /much closer to euro cars above! /SAVED $
Regular gas, no brake dust ugliness, tech features
Ford: Lose the harsh contrasting "piping" on the seats or make it an option. Dark lines around light colors look ugly and out of place. I think it detracts from a refined look. (Vanden Plas Jags had it and it still looked weird) The grill is too teethy, refine it more. Otherwise, great work!
