"Ive had Chrysler 300, Avalons, Camrys, Mazda Millenia, and have driven many many more.
This car LOOKS SEXY, drives so so nice, accelerates NICELY, sounds great, handles and responds like a dream.
I LOVE the sunroof.It is amazing, people stop and comment on the car all of the time.They cant believe its a Lincoln."
Pros: "Nice interior, 33 mpg on the hybrid for me,"
Cons: "rough ride on some freeways"

"I searched and searched for a car with over 30 miles to the gallon but that was not an economy car. I handed on the MKZ. I am very happy with the interior seats, noise (lack of) and gas mileage. The leaf fuel economy icons are fun to watch "grow" with good mileage. Sound system is very nice and the seat warmers/cooler are great. The wood trim takes the interior up a notch for sure. I love the feel of the steering wheel.
The car is sturdy but runs rough on the freeway which I found surprising for a Lincoln.
As a former Camry hybrid owner, I miss the following:
Keyless Entry - I had to get used to knowing where my keys were and having them in my hand to start the car.
Turning radius - The Camry turning radius was great. I end of doing a three point turn to make a U-turn.
Trunk opening - I miss having a trunk to pops up when you open it.
Navigating system - Though they tout the Sync system, it does work with every phone. In fact, only BMW as I know it has the system that will actually read the text and emails which again is something they tout. Also, the actual map is laid out so that it is hard to read the names of the west/east and north/south streets. They are all listed horizontally even if the street appears vertically on the map. In the Camry, you can touch the map and more it to see an area that is not in view.
All in all, I have learned to live with these issues."
Pros: "fun to drive,excellent ride, great highway mileage"
Cons: "pricey, front wheel drive, rapid depreciation"

"Overall, a very nice car--the best riding, best handling unit body front drive car I've ever been in. I had a series of rear drive vehicles--Camaro Z28, two Lincoln LS, a Mustang GT, and wanted the amenities without giving up a precise drive. Tested an MKZ Hybrid on an extended three day test drive, weak handling and too much internal distraction, along with the (since corrected) programming that required the gas engine to run at all times above 62 mph soured me on it, but when I changed my focus to the EcoBoost model with the 19" wheels and handling package, I was convinced. Positive control of the six-speed with the paddles in Sport mode, excellent handling and steering response--and still 34 mpg on the highway. Tough to argue with. I picked the car I ended up buying almost randomly from the twenty or so that the dealership had on hand--wish I had paid just a bit more attention and gotten one with the moonroof and a dark interior; the sand colored leather driver's seat is showing some wear in less than two years. Only other issue is the chronic Lincoln problem of rapid depreciation--even with only a four year loan, I still am slightly underwater twenty one months in--did have a little negative equity from the Mustang that made that a bit worse. If all goes as planned, two years from now I won't care much about that."
Pros: "Value for money, appearance, comfort, mileage"
Cons: "Nothing worth bringing up"

"Everything you'd expect in a luxury sedan and more. Mileage is most impressive. Styling turns heads. Panoramic sunroof is amazing; almost as terrific as a convertible. Seating comfort in all 4 most used positions is excellent unless you are related to Paul Bunyan (rear center position is iffy as in almost all sedans of any price!). I am particularly put off by the comments by "expert's" regarding the infotainment system in Ford and Lincoln products. The system is easy to master, and once done is better than any other manufacturer, including GM, Chrysler, Mercedes, BMW and Audi.
The magazine we all turn to for ratings and evaluations is amazingly biased! This magazine loves On-Star; have you ever used it? Paid for it? This sedan is great package and a major advance for Lincoln."
