2016 Lincoln MKZ Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

It is a nice looking car, but it has multiple shortcomings. Six cylinder engine does not have massive torque and it is thirsty. Transmission is not particularly smooth and holds high RPM at highway speeds, which contributes to a high fuel consumption. Steering is not intuitive and steering wheel is hard to turn. Headlights are LED, but lighting perimeter is short and dark. Touch sensitive screen controls are slow to respond. Navigation screen has 2-4 seconds delay, while changing scenes. Though I just drove 1100 miles, I've been in the dealership multiple times for rattles and vibrations. Quality of interior materials are left to be desired. Leather on the seats bubbles and finger prints are easily shown everywhere, including navigation screen. Cooled seats only cool bottom cushion, but not seat back. Dealership said it is normal. It takes 15 minutes for the heated seats to start operating. THX audio system is a big disappointment. No matter what setting you choose, it sounds dull and subdued.

2016 Lincoln MKZ Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I was SO reluctant to trade in my 12 yr old VOLVO but despite the more sophisticated interior…..took time to figure it all out…..I am pleased with my decision, and highly recommend this sedan. It is quiet, comfortable, and enjoyable to drive ……I feel safe…also a HUGE priority….I have only had it for a month now, but I am impressed thus far. Happy with my choice.

Review

Shopper you need to be aware of the trade in value of this car. We purchased the MKZ about 7 months ago and wanted to trade it on for SUV. This cars value dropped from MSRP of 42,000 to 22000 trade in value. This is not just from the dealer where we tried to trade, but actually we couldn't find a Lincoln dealer that displayed any interest in trading for this car. KBB list the car with a ver low trade in value. If you plan to drive the car you're fine, but if you trade often stay away!

2016 Lincoln MKZ Sedan Black Label 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I bought my MkZ a month ago. It is delightful; the experience at the dealership, the car itself, the little touches that provide an experience of specialness combine to deliver the most impressive auto ownership experience I have had in nearly forty years of new car ownership. The MkZ is not a BMW, it is an American luxury experience that brings forward design and experiential elements going back more than forty years. The MkZ is unique in that it can be calibrated to ride and handle like a classic Town Car, or a responsive mid-sized car, or something in between. My MkZ is a Black Label, which is probably the best luxury/premium value in the marketplace between the unique trim like the Mark IV and V series of the late 1970s and additional services that no other luxury brand offers. Those few reviews that I've seen complain about the MkZ that it isn't a BMW - what a boring place this would be if every choice were the same. The MkZ gives the buyer who finds its qualities to be pleasing a blend of traditional American luxury, handling, and unique styling. Fully loaded, it's an absolute bargain as compared to its entire field of competition and the dealer experience is the best in the industry.

My car has the 3.7L V6 FWD - Edmunds didn't offer that combination

Review

This is a great car! For the money there are many options. The dealer (non-Ford) experience is great. The vehicle itself is amazing, responsive, elegant and comfortable. Additionally, eveyone ask about it, admires its beauty, and loves the interior. I had the 2012 Hybrid and it was great too, this one is just in another league. Glad to be a Lincoln owner.
