I have had my MKZ for 6 months now and overall it is a great car. I was looking for a comfortable car that kept me connected to the road and the MKZ did that better then CTS, BMW or Mercedes for the dollar. If you spend allot of time in the car as I do 8500 miles already and you are 6'4" this is a great vehicle. I am getting 21 MPG. The car is also very quiet. Navigation is also accurate and speech access makes it easy to use wile driving. Plenty of power both off the start and passing however transmission gets rough when you get on it. Trans is smooth during normal driving. You have to pull out the headlight switch to turn on driving lights this is poor placement as your knee turns it off.
Speech access, Handling, Comfort and interior size. It is extremely deceiving from the outside.
Remove pull feature on headlight switch. When you are on the cell phone via bluetooth and turn up the volume the next time the phone ring it is extremely loud volume controls need to be separated. GPS speech interrupts phone conversation.
