This is my first Lincoln and I'm pleased with it.

Since purchasing my Lincoln MKZ, I have driven the car for over one year under many different driving conditions. I have not encountered any problems with my car and I'm pleased with it. Lincoln owners get individual treatment at the Ford Store dealership, so when I bring it in for routine scheduled maintenance, I never have to wait and the quality of service is excellent.

Easy Car to Migrate to from an Older Big Sedan

It's quiet, it's comfortable, no repairs and for me the high MPG is great (and it's entertaining to try to maximize mileage, the dash gives a lot of help). Design is handsome though conservative, and the material quality seems to be up to the expected standard of Lincoln (this is after all a gussied-up Fusion). No rattles yet! You have to rev the whee out of the 2.5 liter 4 for real acceleration, and since it's a CVT the revs just go to max and then sit there. The sound reminds me of little European sports cars from the 70's, with their under 2-liter 4s. Cooled seats are nice. No rear air vents.
