I have been a loyal Cadillac customer all my life but decided to try something new I was looking to upgrade from my 2003 cts and found the Lincoln zephyr, the Lincoln is a far superior car more power and refinement. I will buy lincolns from now on.
Performance and handling, interior quality, THX system
After looking at the CTS and the BMW 5 series's I felt that they didn't stack up against Lincoln in terms of luxury and performance so I decided to go with the Zephyr, it's Comfortable smooth, and Reliable it has all of the features you need out of a luxury vehicle, I got mine fully loaded with the Navigation,Moonroof ect. $35,000 New. The seats are very comfortable, Excellent acceleration on the freeway the car just glides. Build quality is superb and haven't had any major issues, the car currently has 127,000 miles and I fully expect to get at least another 100,000 out of it, I always get compliments on it, if you are thinking about buying one you won't regret it.
Memory seats are very plush, Navigation is excellent, Dependabillity, Styling.
I purchased my 2006 Zephyr via an auction in 2009.
Sharp, sporty looking car!
Mine is dark gray & has the light gray interior.
The car had a slight worn
spot in what appeared to be a seam on the left hand side of the upper drivers seat.
In time the worn spot appeared to stretch & you could see fibers & then the dye in the leather started to come off in just that one small section.
I paid $400 to have the upper seat
It happened again & they took the cover back and gave me another.
Now, less than 6 mos. later it is doing the same thing.
The same location on all 3.
Time for a meeting with a Factory Rep.
Interior appearance and the overall design is very good.
I have a 2006 zephyer with all options have 8 thousand miles on it bought new. The chrome is peeling off of the wheels I have talked to other owners and they have the same problem. I purchased an extended warranty I was told by lincoln the wheels are not covered. I have bought lincolns for over 30 years this will be my last terrible customer service. if you own one check your wheels
WE love our Lincoln Zephyr, it handles and drives very well, hugs the curves and the ride is smooth. The only thing that I feel could be improved is that the front seats are too small for my frame on a long trip. I am 6' 3" and weigh 225. Although the Zephyr is my wife's car and she loves it especailly the GPS system. WE do like to take it on trips in excess of 400 miles and that is where it becomes un comfortable for me. Besides that I feel the Zephyr is a solid vehicle. I suppose we will need to look for a larger Lincoln perhaps a MKS, we shall see. Thanks for listening Edward & Alice Edward & Alice
Ride, performance, handling and GPS
Larger front seats, car needs to about 4 inches wider and adding 2 inches in width and length to each front seat would be helpful.
