Looks nice, very rough trans
By Marc on


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


My Zephyr looks great. I put 20" rims and low profile tires from the start and the car looks great. The tires the dealer sold me were horrible (Nitto) but I replaced them with Michelins that are much better. Car is comfortable and rides fairly well on the freeway. I always get people telling me they love how it looks too. The biggest problem is the transmission and the poor fuel economy. The transmission has been poor from the start, with very jerky upshifting almost predictable when trying to accelerate from a rolling 40 MPH. The transmission actually jerks so hard that the car almost comes off the ground. I am really not looking forward to that repair bill that come inevitably.

Best Features

Temperature control system, navigation, seats, sunroof, and interior quality are all very nice. Stereo desperately needs an aux input. Couldn't hook up a satellite radio even though I had one.

Worst Features

Aux input for Stereo, better transmission, better fuel economy.
