2006 Lincoln Zephyr 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Purchased the car with all available options except I passed on replaceing the real wood interior trim with brushed crome. Put Mobil 1 Synthetic oil in and pumped up the tires to 42 psi. (The Michelins are max rated at 44 psi and Lincoln recomends 33 psi.) I averaged 33 mpg on a 400 mile trip which included mountainous terrain. Very satisfied! The car handles very well and the 221 hp V6 has plenty of pep. As far as looks are concerned, I have gotten many compliments on the exterior and interior design from friends and strangers. During my trip I observed many cars giving the Zephyr a good look and a buddy of mine who has been a Cadillac man for years is trading in for a new Zephyr.


Best Features

The THX II sound system and the air conditioned seats. The adjustable center console armrest makes finding a comfortable positon easy for anyone. The dash and center stack evening lighting is classy and makes finding controls a snap.


Worst Features

Make manual telescopic and tilt steering wheel motorized and tie it into the seat and outside mirror memory control.

Review

There are big time steering problems with this vehicle. Without four lanes forget a u-turn. Pulling into a parking space requires that you backup and correct. Hard to believe it has rack and pinion steering! The engine sounds like a tinker toy not that of a $30,000 luxury car. Forget having to accelerate quickly when merging onto the interstate or turnpike. At 52, I would I was more consumer savvy. Wrong!


Best Features

Body.


Worst Features

Fix the steering problems. Install a door handle inside the car to open/close the door. Do something with the whiny engine noise. Put real carpet in the car. Back seating inordinately uncomfortable. Make the key a size that will fit on a key chain, please. The MPG bites ... the literature lied

2006 Lincoln Zephyr 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My first American Luxury car. Considered Acura TL/TSX, Infinity and Lexus offerings. Price point and design made Zephyr most appealing, no cookie cutting. Exterior design jaw dropping gorgeous. Classy name and interior styling. Very solid build with a quality interior makes driving quite enjoyable. Love the AC in the seats (gets hot here in GA). Plesant experience at the dealership. Very quiet ride even at 70 mph interstate speed. Positive feedback in the corners, secure feeling from brake system. Overall Zephyr is well balanced when compared to competing models.


Best Features

Cooled seating, exterior and interior styling, light sage pearl paint is beautiful color. Smooth ride with sporty feedback. QUIET RIDE!!


Worst Features

Improvements are mainly things I would like added but may not be possible while maintaining price. These are as follows. XM radio, full size spare, manual gear selections, slightly more HP, trunk release lockout, back up sensors and auto tilt steering wheel. add those for under 1k and perfection!

Review

I traded in my Cadillac CTS for this car and am even more pleased. I had to get my windows tinted because I had so many people stopping by the car and riding directly next to me on the highway just to gawk.


Best Features

The rear lights and the interior.


Worst Features

Stability.
