I replaced a 1996 Subaru Legacy with a new MKZ. I wanted greater comfort with the safety of all-wheel drive, and the MKZ met my requirements best. It is very comfortable to drive, has plenty of power, and gets good comments on its appearance. So far, after 5 months, I have had no problems at all with this car. I would recommend it to anyone.
Seats can be adjusted so many ways that it is easy to get comfortable. Cooled seats are great in the summer, and I added a remote starter to cool and/or heat in advance as needed. Good leg room, better than my Chrysler Concorde.

A great driving car...nice smooth engine with strong acceleration...The interior is a home run...the prettiest that I've ever owned...No bugs at all after 6 months...My only complaint is disappointing fuel economy...about 17 mpg average including hwy.
This car is great so far. Drives smoothly. The nav system is useful as well as cool. The interior is just a little too plasticky. Having the Sirius radio built in is a real improvement over the add on set-up in my old car. Power is good but it's not as peppy as my Grand Prix GTP which has 20 less horsepower. I did read every review on here before buying it, so thank you to everyone that took the time to post.
Nav system, Sirius radio, memory seat. The dark interior with the silver highlights looks great.
Could use an OnStar like system or at least Bluetooth. Interior parts could be improved a bit. For $37k, they really should provide a trunk net, I just ordered one, it's going to cost me $42 and ten days of my laptop and books rolling all over the trunk.
I'm really impressed with the MKZ's styling and overall design. The ride is smooth but stable though acceleration isn't as strong as the Acura or Lexus I test drove.The interior is clean and well laid-out with everything within easy reach and easy to see. The THX certified stereo has nice sound. Hours of MP3s can be loaded into the 6 disk player. I have to say, for the price, I feel you can't beat the options (standard or optional) that are available. There's lot of American cars that really do compare in quality to the Japanese. They'll have a tough row to hoe to convince everyone to pass up the Acura or Lexus lines but I think they're well on thier way.
