Very Good, but not Great

2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Purchased this car 4 weeks ago. On a 4-hour highway trip averaged 38 mpg. Same in town. Car is very comfortable to sit in for long distances. Interior is classy and exterior paint looks great.

Complaints include fuel efficiency leaves display difficult to determine how efficient you are at that moment. Windows look great, but difficult to see oncoming traffic when backing up on a slight curve.

Most disappointment was/is with Lincoln itself. They offered a $1000.00 rebate if your car was from a competing manufacturer, but not if you were a loyal Ford owner! I've never been penalized for loyalty.

Best Features

Interior design, quality of exterior paint. Moonroof functions. Heated seats both sides.

Worst Features

Improve energy efficiency display; suggest a numbered scale. Improve voice recognition for radio. Add spare tire. Get mpg closer to stated output.

Don't give up on good gas mileage, I have the MKZ hybrid and have gotten as much as 57mpg. It's all about using the cruise control and giving yourself plenty of brake time. The display on the left of the steering wheel is more helpful in determining fuel efficiency, but I love the white flowers that grow as my efficiency improves.
