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


Review

I have owned this Zephyr for 2 years now. All in all it has been a good car for me. There have been some issues,however. Since day one of ownership the car has idled very high after sitting for more than a couple of hours! It takes several minutes for the car to idle down on its own! Have been to the dealer and they say all is fine! My mileage is now dismal and I believe it is due to the high idle every morning and afternoon. 2006 was the only year this particular engine was used.I've talked to other owners of 2007-08 models they have no problems. They also have more power as Lincoln added about 43 horsepower! A friend drove my car and thought it was a 4 cylinder!


Best Features

Great exterior design!


Worst Features

More headroom with sunroof option. Better quality of leather. More soundproofing in general. For 32,000 car could be a bit better.

Review

Bought the Zephyr a year ago with every available feature except the Nav system (have cell phone GPS for that). The projected TCO is $0.45/mile so far with the factory 5 yr maintenance plan. Driving has been a pleasant surprise: smooth, quiet ride yet agile handling when needed. Mileage has ranged from 19 to 31 MPG with 23 MPG typical per tank full. The THX II delivers a satisfying volume and quality of about any style of music I know of.


Best Features

Quiet and smooth ride when crusing, adequate power for most driving conditions with a satisfying exhaust note when pressed. Transmission holds appropriate gear in hill climbs without upshifting unnecessarily.


Worst Features

Instrument/entertainment cluster LED displays not adequate in sunlight. THX II sound system should have adequate equalizer controls.

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


Review

Bought Zephyr used with only 11k miles. Fully loaded with every option. Like the cooled seats (Houston is hot) killer sound system and tremendous storage with rear seat folded down. Adding door protector strip to avoid dings. Could use a little more power and engine sounds "busy" when accelerating. Gas mileage averaging around 22.5. Don't like the tilt steering, GM is much better.


Best Features

THX sound system, HID headlights, cooled seats and perfect paint. Navigation system is very good and very easy to use, low wind noise with sun roof open or tilted.


Worst Features

Improve tilt and telescoping steering to GM standards. Needs UV glass to reduce glare. Needs oil and amp gages and get rid of idiot lights!

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


Review

I previously owned a Cadillac Deville and was considering the CTS as a replacement. The Lincoln, with front- wheel drive, proved to have a more appealing interior design and layout and caused me to re-think my original plan. The Lincoln offers a stylish dash and cabin and sporty exterior looks. It is definitely not a Town Car and is a nice replacement for the Lincoln LS. The smooth 6-speed transmission provides a nice ride and good gas mileage. Lincoln has obviously gone back to the drawing board to try to attract a younger buyer and compete for some of the import shoppers in this segment.


Best Features

Heated/air conditioned seats, interior styling and materials. Smooth shifting of transmission, ride, handling qualities.


Worst Features

Power Port for rear seating area. Slight increase in engine power.
