I bought this car when it was 2 years old and had just under 60k on it. I just traded it will almost 300k on it. It looked and drove great but I really like the style of the 12's and found a very low miles one. I thought I better get one before they get much older. Other than brakes, tires and oils changes and a few other things by which I literally mean 4 or 5 things it was a great car. It never left me sitting and sInce the 2012 is basically the same powertrain I suspect I will be just as good.

If you have the 3.5 and the car overheats might as well go to a dealer the water pump is located inside the motor very costly repair. Not only did it not fix my problem I ended up having to get a new engine. Being a single mom working 2 jobs and having to spend almost 5,000.00 on a car with 97,000 miles is TERRIBLE!!!! I have always had regular maintenance on the car but once one thing went wrong it went down hill from there.

I sold my 392 Challenger and bought a used 07 MKZ AWD with roughly 90k miles. Turning 120k now and only an a/c clutch had to be replaced. I was ran off the road at an intersection by someone that blew a red light, forcing me to jump a curb. Surprisingly, no damage other than an alignment and wheel balancing. The power is very adequate (this coming from someone that had a hopped up (525hp) car. I get 25-28mpg, depending on the highway speed, typically 75mph. Pretty good mpg for an awd. Looks good, drives good, what else can you want?

We bought the 07 MKZ used in 08 with 5,200 miles. It gets parked for the winter and at this time has 20,200 miles on it. Between the air conditioning and the transmission problems, this car spends more time at the dealership getting fixed and I am paying insurance on a lincoln and am driving a focus loaner. The dealer just had this car for 2 wks fixing transmission, had it back 2 days and is currently at the dealer again with no end date for repairs to be finished. It has officially spent more time in the shop than my 10 year old honda odyssey ever has...Would definitely not trust this car on an extended trip any time soon.

I have over 25000 miles on this car and have yet to have a problem. This car is the most reliable and unstoppable car that i have ever owned. I live in NJ and have little country cottages up in upstate NY and going up those hills in a foot of snow and driving through the mud, sand, dirt, and grass has never posed a problem for my MKZ AWD. The AWD system is so advanced sometimes i think it does better than my LR4. The car is amazing in the bad weather and the engine is quite powerful. It is not a rocketship but it's no slow poke either. Very few people will use the AWD system like i do for example i went up dirt/mud covered roads yesterday but it is still a nice accessory to have.

I have owned car for 4 years. I purchased it brand new at top dollar. It has the Lincoln ride. Yea! I have had a few problems with it that the dealership has not been able to fix. I have had to replace the battery already. The plastic seat support broke and had to be replaced but still catches when I get out. The left front automatic window is scraping and the dealership only lubricates it. It makes a noise and leaves marks when raised and lowered. Big problem since new: delayed AC activation...Lincoln said this is the way it was made. The AC does not activate for 30-45 seconds. I understand it should activate in 8-10 seconds. Lincoln hasn't been able to determine how to fix this!

I've driven in a Cadillac CTS-V 07 love the ride, less room than the Lincoln MKZ. The MKZ has a nicer interior, the power is very good thou I'm used to the v8 power, this car has many toys that I love, LOve the hands free phone, you can hook your cell phone to the mp3 player press the line in button and speak through the speakers of auto awesome, cool and heat seat great. I'm nearly 6' and plenty of room, front and back. I just miss my Lincoln ls the v8 power, but this car has enough power that I'm very happy with this car.

I purchased my MKZ in April 2007, and currently have 34,000 miles on it. I get about 22 mpg average and at least 27 mpg on the road. I have gotten as high as 30 mpg on flat terrain with no headwind. The car has an elegant interior, and I have had no mechanical problems of any Kind. The on/off switch on the radio broke. That was under warranty, and they replaced the entire radio, claiming you cannot order just the plastic switch cap. The handling is excellent, acceleration is excellent. I drive, on the highway, about 70 to 74 mph (speed limit 70) The car has plenty of acceleration at that speed, allowing a fast and safe pass of slower cars on two lane roads.

We bought the car as a lease trade in from a dealer. AWD is great in all weather, and the heated and cool seats are comfortable. We have everything, the THX radio with NAV, moonroof and of course AWD. We are get 18mpg and 23mpg on the road. It is quiet and comfortable. Great truck space. Buy it used and you will save a bundle. Ford makes good cars, I have a 2003 Mustang Cobra as well, no problems.

We bought this car in mid-2008 at a time when dealers were hurting. It had 9,000 miles on it. We are now over 27,000 miles and the car has performed wonderfully. No this is not a European/Japanese luxury car. But it delivers good gas mileage, 23/29, great comfort and it looks sharp. It has also proven to be very reliable. As a late model used car, the MKZ can be a super value!

Replacing transmission as we speak (67000 miles). Strange vibrations since new that could not be diagnosed. Can't read odometer with sun shining on the instrument panel. Looks great, feels great and drives great. Lots of senior citizens ask about it. Replaced tires at 48000 miles. Very difficult finding tires for driving on ice for up North. Could not buy extended warranty because of miles per year. Nice size car for business but turning circle too big. Very difficult to judge rear end when backing up. Still like driving it and will probably keep 2 more years if it holds up. Little uncomfortable driving a car that had to get a new transmission with such low miles.

We leased our Lincoln MKZ as a replacement vehicle to an 2004 Honda Accord LX. The Lincoln has options galore, the fit and look of the car is appealing and the ride and performance, coupled with good gas mileage makes this a wonderful car to own. We are considering buying the car at lease end, since we are so satisfied with it. We also lease a 2008 Cadillac CTS, which is vastly improved over the 2004 CTS it replaced. Compared to the Cadillac CTS, the Lincoln is different in many ways but also just as comfortable and luxurious. We think we have the best of both worlds in our MKZ and CTS autos. As for American made, we have no complaints with either car.

Very "herky-jerky" starts caused by the transmission or electronic controls. Dealership says its inherent in the new design and and even though they acknowledge the rough ride; they say Ford has not given any warranty repair advise. Therefore, they cant authorize any warranty repairs. They say it's a problem but don't know what to do.... "poor design" i guess. I'm very disappointed and will be looking to trade out of this car soon.

Over the years (I'm 60ish) I have bought Fords, Chryslers, and Gm vehicules, now my first Lincoln. This car is by far my best car ever. It currently has 22,000 miles and each one of them a total pleasure. It drives like a dream, very comfortable and fuel economy is great. A frequent 1200 mile trip, which includes 200 mile of hilly country roads, I usually average 25.5+ miles per gallon. My only complaint is with the exterior design, the rear lights which are too large.

I always buy used cars so this was a nice find 07 Lincoln MKZ. The ride is quiet. The engine is so quiet that after starting I have to look at tach to see if it's running. The first full tank of gas I avg 33 mph with about 60% of driving over 50 mph and got 26 mpg. This is great when you only avg 33 mph. It shows you stopping eats gas. The luxury you get with this car is great for this price whether new or used.

I am 47 and this car suits me very well. This is one of the best cars I have owned. I love the comfort and style. I love the characteristic Lincoln ride and quietness. No problems yet (12,000 mile mark). Gets 27 mpg at 75mph as well. Cruises like a dream. Good cold A/C for hot Texas summers! For the money it is an excellent value. I was also able to use an employee discount feature to lower the price as well. I bought this car after driving a used Zephyr that I bought for my Mom.

This is not your grandfather's Lincoln. The sporty design is just sassy enough, yet restrained enough to be classy. I replaced my SUV and Volvo with this vehicle and found it superb in terms of overall reliability, style, handling. I get 22 mpg and the AWD performed competently in mountain/winter driving. Very pleased with it and would buy it again.

Excellent transporation for the bucks. Love the seated/cooled seats, THX surround sound stereo, nav system, common sense approach to controls and buying regular gas. Didn't need to read the plethora of manuals to operate either the stereo or nav system. Very intuitive. Engine response is good. Wish I could manually select gears. Transmission shifting software needs improvement. Very comfortable ride at the sacrifice of handling. I'd buy it again.

I purchased the AWD model in August of this year. I have driven the car for around 5500 miles so far and I have to say that I am extremely pleased. I drove the car in some harsh weather as well and this car is solid. The car takes the bad roads with no problem and asks for more. You really feel safe while driving in the elements. Lincoln did a great job with this car!! I havent had any problems with the car so far and I have wanted to post this message to help others in deciding whether to buy this car or noit like I did. As far as fuel economy, could be better. Unless your driving everyday on the highway, you will get an average of around ~20 MPG.

Superb value for the money with all the typical luxury features which would cost $3-6K more on comparable models. I gave up a BMW 740i [drove for 8 years] and have driven numerous BMW 300 series. I was looking for a smaller car since my kids are grown up and wanted to downsize with the following criteria: a] reliable b] safe c] fun to drive. The computer came up with BMW, Audi, Acura & Lincoln. When I saw the Lincoln, I thought you must be joking, but I researched all, test drove and picked the Lincoln. It's a choice I have not regreted; I am enormously satisfied with the handling, comfort, THX system and reliability. It's a sharp, sporty luxury car. Firm ride so might not fit all buyers.

I am 48 and have finally found a car that combines my youth filled desire to have a sports car with the luxury features and comfort I deserve and have earned. I honestly cannot think of one thing I dislike about this vehicle. It is priced right, I get good value, the quality is there and it is freakin awesome to drive. The only shread of issue is in the blind spots in the side mirrors and I cannot honestly tell you whether it is me or in the design. Otherwise, especially if you get an A plan, this car is the best value around.

I wanted a mid-sized sedan, and ended up looking at 35 vehicles and driving 22 times in a 5 month period. MKZ was the best fit for me, and after 1500 miles I can't find flaws. Mileage is averaging 21, and got 27.3 on a highway-only trip at mostly 70mph. I didn't opt for the NAV system or THX sound, a small Garmin GPS unit fits fine in the console cupholder. Step-in height is more comfortable than a TL, and usable space much better than an IS. Console and instruments aren't trying to be the space shuttle, just useful and tasteful and readable. We're looking forward to feeling the AWD in snow, and a circle-lake-superior trip. All cars involve compromise, MKZ is one to look at.

We bought this car about 1 year ago. It has more than fulfilled our expectations (and we have experienced about every other car in and around its class). Not a single problem so far. Very smooth, comfortable, quiet, and secure ride. Solidly built. No irritating vibrations, rattles, wind noises, or transmission quirks. Wonderful suspension engineered to minimize the “feel of the road” a.k.a. riding on a farm wagon, that several other cars in its class are lauded for (quasi-professional reviewers apparently have a unique sense of what’s appealing to many drivers who might consider buying a near luxury car). Excellent acceleration and power for other than the Datona 500. Highway ~ 27.5 mpg.

Best vehicle I have owned in 10 years. The navigation system is very user friendly. Seats are comfortable, sound system outstanding and we love the fact that we can plug in any MP3 player through a connection in the center console. Driving on long trips is pleasurable and a joy. The vehicle handles well and the ergonomic layout of the interior makes changing stations or adjusting the temperature level easy. Plus these is dual climate controls. The memory seating feature is much welcomed as my wife and I are different sizes. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone.

I purchased my 2007 AWD MKZ a month ago. I traded an Acura RSX. I tested an Acura TL, a BMW 328xi, and an Infiniti G35x. Each vehicle was good, but none of the competitors moved me: the TL felt like an Accord; the 3-series drives great but it's so common now; the Infiniti was nice, but it too is becoming common. After the 1st test drive of the Lincoln, I was sold. The exterior is subtle and classy. The interior is easily the best in its class. The car is more luxury than sport, but it's not boring. The stereo is great. Every day I have random people stop me to compliment me on the car. I am very pleased with this car. It is the nicest car I've ever purchased.

We bought the car in April and generally like the car. We have had an overheating problem three times on hot days in heavy traffic. The thermostat has been replaced but the problem is still there and they can't seem to duplicate the problem when I take it to the shop. It seems like the cooling fans don't always come on. Very troubling.

MKZ AWD driven 120 miles a day with frequent road trips avg 6+ hours in the car. Seating comfort was #1 priority, followed by fuel economy. The 10-way power seat can sit upright eleminating stress on the lower back. Average mpg 25 commute, 27 trip, city 23. Handles nicely, quick excelleration, fun to drive. The controls are all in easy to reach/use places. The upgraded convenience featrues are new must haves. Dual driver memory on the seats/mirrors programmed to the keyfob/keyless entry pad; auto dimming rearview and side mirrors; well lighted entry; cooled leather seats! MKZ has many options you can program to your liking. THX stereo system provides amazing sound. Highly recommend this car.

A Very Nice Car

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.

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.

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.

I am a prior Lincoln owner and a most recent Toyota Avalon owner. So far the two are about equal with the Lincoln feeling more solid. Acceleration is good, but the Avalon seemed quicker. Lincoln feels better on the long trips. Large back seat seemed wasted in the Avalon which has less trunk space. Lincoln handles better around the curves.

This car has been a major disappointment as we came from a 2003 Lincoln LS V8 that was averaging the same fuel economy :18 MPG. While the MKZ is AWD, it has less power and a smaller V6 engine. The build quality and the materials is way below sup bar. The hard plastics and the gaps in between the interior and exterior panels is ridiculous. The wood trim looks fake, the dashboard has this twin look going on, that seems as if you could move the steering wheel and gauges over to the other side. Speaking of gauges, the retro looking dash is not cool, its very cheap looking! Note to Lincoln: Hire some better designers and stop looking to the past. This will be a long 3yr lease.

Love it!

I did a lot of research before leasing an MKZ. In terms of style, features, and AWD, it is a great deal. This is the first American car I've owned, and so far I'm very satisfied. Obviously Lincoln still has a stodgy image to overcome, but it's on well on its way with the MKZ.

All wheel drive was not on our "must have" list, but we are pleased so far and look forward to some winter weather to really test this feature. Interior is as advertised. I like the retro feel of it. The seats are a little lower and therefore a little harder to get out of when compared to our Park Avenue. Would be nice to have some way to close the trunk other than grabing the sheet metal and hoping your hand has a good grip. The trunk opens wide and the lid itself points straight up. Akward I feel. The power is nice and the gauges easy to read. Quiet riding after a short break-in period in whick I felt the suspension was going to be too stiff.

This is a great car. I saw it online and fell in love with it. I called the dealership, I told them the deal I wanted and they acomodated me. The next day I went in a bought the car. The body style and the ride is wonderful and the interior is amazing. Affordable, and a lot of options that you would normally pay extra for come standard. Lincoln did a great job on the car, I am 23 years old and all my boys are raving about it. It has a young look to it and I think the MKZ and The Navigator are going to be the two hottest cars that Lincoln puts out!

My previous car was a 2002 lincoln continental. I loved it, but was ready for a new car. This MKZ was the perfect replacement. It is so classy looking and so much fun to drive. I looked at other cars but this one met most all of my needs and wants. And did it within my budget. It is very responsive for a 6 cyl. But gas mileage is not quite as good as my 8 cyl Continental. Averaging 21 mpg city and road. Could be it is not broken in yet, only had it for 1 month. So far I love it. My 29 y/o son even approved of my choice.

I am so happy that I got the MKZ. I never thought that I would have ended up buying a Ford car, but I must say the MKZ has really changed my mind about Fords cars. It looks way better than the Lexus inside and out, has plenty of power and a nice sounding growl from the V6 and to top it off, it even runs on regular gas! AWD is a must if you live in a snowy region. The transmission is always in the right gear and it is extremely smooth. This is a fun to drive car for me, and at the same time has plenty of luxury and comfort features such as standard heated seats. The quality of the MKZ is up to or better than the Japanese offerings. For the price of this car, it simply cannot be beat.

The interior is excellent and has a luxury feel. Love the MP3 plug in for my ipod. Very roomy car and the dual seat settings are a plus as my husband has been taking my car everywhere and it is so much easier now that all I have to do is push a button and my seat is back where I want it. The car is absolutely beautiful exterior. When I am parked in a parking lot nothing compares to the beauty. The ride is smooth on the highway and very controllable on the back roads. I travel both to work. Both feels great. Love It!

After driving Mercury Mini Vans for years I finally have only my husband and myself and was able to get my Lincoln. I love everything about this car. It is fun to drive and the gas mileage is wonderful. I am getting 29 MPG on the highway. The only drawback is the NAVTEC map disk are updated every 2 years. I purchased my car in November 2006 and received the 05 map, the new 07 map was released in December of 06. If I want an updated map Lincoln is saying I have to pay for an updated version which is in excess of $150.00. I don't like the fact that a $2495.00 option is already costing me $$$.

And at a fraction of the price. And no, i didn't buy this car because i couldn't afford the BMW. I could have bought the M5 if i wanted to, but, I bought the MKZ because i legitimately feel that it's a much better ride, much more comfortable. Much more space in the back, and a great Bang for your buck.

I bought this to replace my Audi A6 2.7T. Trying to be patriotic with my first purchase of an American car in quite a long time. The difference is shocking! No comparison. My wife's minivan has a smaller turning radius than this car. The transmission is primitive and pops into gear upon a medium to hard acceleration. The car feels light with no road grip. The sound system (I got the premium THX II) is just plain awful. The xenon headlights are only fair. This car's gas mileage is only moderately better than a full- size American SUV. The only redeeming quality about the car is the exterior appearance. Once you peel that away, it is clear why the American auto industry is ready to fold.

Excellent car. The 3.5 L engine really stands out from the previous 3.0 L in the Zephyr (which I bought one used for my Mother). Fuel economy is still down from what I would expect, but this car blows away the competition for the price. I love the light tan interior and light colored wood. I was surprised that the moon roof, when closed, doesn't add interior noise as I feared it would. I have the THX-II radio in this car and although it sounds very good, I am disappointed in the bass level, especially with two 6 X 9" "sub- woofers" with that spacious trunk as an enclosure. The bass is just not there as it is on the regular standard radio! Rock and roll requires some thumping bass!

I just got the MKZ and I have an 2004 BMW 525i. You would have to be a fool to purchase anything but the MKZ. I put the 2 cars side by side, they look the same. The standard equipment alone, makes the BMW look striped. The biggie its $20,000 CHEAPER. This is Fords golden ticket. Honestly, I would have paid $10,000 more and felt like I got a deal. I am floored by the cars style and performance.

I drove it and I was hooked, besides everyone has a BMW and I felt I had something better and unique. I love the ride, the look and the comfort. Everywhere I go, I get a positive reaction. The pick-up and AWD are awesome. And knowing my dealer has a great service department (just in case) made this purchase an easy one.

We never thought we would have a Lincoln in our drive until maybe when we retired, but once we took the MKZ for an overnight test drive we changed our minds fast! This car is simply amazing for the money. I really thought it would just be a Fusion with window dressing, but boy was I wrong. Our MKZ has incredible power and handling characteristics and the interior makes you never want to get out. Little things like real wood trim and a real clock (not digital) really make a big difference.

Unless the 05 Towncar makes some improvement over the 04, I must disagree with the comment about smoothness coming up short of the Town Car. At slow street speeds, I do feel the Towncar is SLIGHTLY quieter though. I did have an initial hi freq "buzz" at highway speeds, put a pit in my stomach as I drive 98 miles each way to work and I cant STAND noise. Isolated the problem to the triangular plastic between the RV mirrors and the door frame. Took it back, dealer sealed it, no more buzz. I looked at numerous Z's on the lot and many had same symptom...EASILY fixed, so if it happens to you, get it fixed. This was the only thing that kept me from giving a 10 to exterior & build. I love this car!

I just traded in a 2004 Acura TL and can't begin to tell you how much more I enjoy driving my new MKZ. The MKZ is built much better than the TL. I suffered through rattles and a buzzy stereo speaker with the Acura. The MKZ is solid as a rock. In fact, I would compare it favorably to the 2001 Saab 95 I used to own which was vault like. Don't listen to all of the magazine reviews. This car is outstanding! The ride is comfortable but still has a European feel. There is no torque steer, which is something I disliked about my TL. The car is appointed beautifully. You owe it to yourself to at least test drive the MKZ. It's a lot a car for the money.

I traded a Chrysler 300M which was my favorite car that I ever owned, but think I'm going to like this one more. Handling & acceleration are great, interior is exceptional, and the exterior turns heads everywhere, especially with really fancy chrome wheels. Love the Merlot color with beige interior. I'm mid 50's, sell real estate to high end buyers, and this is a great car for someone who needs a sedan, but not an "old person's car". I looked at Chrysler 300C, Dodge Charger, Nissan Maxima and a few others, but very glad that I picked this one. Priced well below the competition. And it indeed seems to have "learned" how I drive after a crash course in fast acceleration and curvy roads.

Love the looks i receive and the compliments about it. most people say they didn't know it was even a lincoln! plenty of room. sound system is incredible and like i've never heard in a car. i always find excuses to go places with it. drives very comfortably when cruising but when pushed hard she moves very quick and sometimes scary! The new 3.5 liter is a huge improvement over the 3.0L. I like the new front fascia over last years zephyr. Lincoln didn't take any short cuts with any cheap materials here. everything is top quality and soft to the touch. don't base your decision by pictures or reviews go out there and test drive one yourself and you will be amazed. Choose over comp. like Lexus Es350

I have had the car for almost two months and have driven 3500 miles. Great car, I truly enjoy driving it. Classy yet not too flashy, which is just my style.

Hot MKZ

I like the strong and smooth quiet ride. Look at the consumer reports evaluation of this vehicle, it is a best buy and best of all it is not your grand dad's car.

Great look and Smooth Ride

Great looking car, that seems to gather a postive response where ever I go. Good but not great pick-up at lower speeds, but pretty strong in the 60+ miles per hour range, smooth transmission. Interior outstanding, in both look and feel, wonderful THX system, NAV is easy to use. Ride is a little floaty but overall quite and nice. blue/black combination was my selection

Great Car, But........

My wife and I searched long and hard for an all wheel drive vehicle with class that could be serviced locally...this is it! However, the heated seats are not working and Lincoln says they won't even have the manual to the dealer until late December! I thought that a premium vehicle would get premium service! This is our only criticism so far, but it's a big one! Wake up Lincoln, your competition is listening!

Great drive

I recently totaled my Mercury Montego and found this. Little smaller than what I was getting used to but great to drive. Smooth, quiet, great acceleration. Great look

puts the Japanese in the dirt.

This is a beautiful car. It has a great ride, classy styling and will get up and go. The navigation and stereo system are easy to use. It is the most comfortable car, I have driven. I looked at Japanese and German cars, and this was by far the best value. This car is worth a look, and to all you German, Japanese yuppies this is a high performance luxury car at 2/3 the price. I think it has a better ride and is better engineered than most cars in its class. Ford/Lincoln did well on this one. I traded in my 2005 Subaru Legacy and was very impressed by ride, luxury, performance of this vehicle.

Fantastic MKZ

This car is A head turner!, whether driving or parked it attracts attention. Its sleek fun to Drive drop dead gorgeous. Lincoln has outdone themselves. I have own Lincolns since 1993.

Excellent Handling and Smooth Ride

If you had your eye on a luxury import sedan check the MKZ out, this car offers excellent handling, power and a smooth ride. The MKZ is a luxury car that is fun to drive and it has so many features for the money. In my opinion there is no better value for a mid- sized sedan.

Most any magazine review of this car gives it a bland or no endorsement. Ignore them all! Besides that cool, unique interior, this car has great specs - 6 speed trans, 263 horses - better than most BMW's which will cost you thousands more. Riding in the class of a Lincoln for under $30K?? I don't see much to criticize about it whatsoever. It has great acceleration, especially in the middle gears and a tight feel in general. It's roomy, agile and stylish - I highly recommend it. Also, the dealer experience was very pleasant. One salesperson from start to finish and no pressure at any time. So far so good. Did I mention that the price was only $28K??

Nicest car i've ever owned

Spectacular handling, very comfortable, fun to drive, a ton of horsepower, very well redesigned from the 06 zephyr. Nicer riding than the 5 series and the avalon. I am coming out of a maxima, and it does not compare to the ride and quality of a ride than the mkz. If you are looking for a car with all of these specs you have to look at this vehicle. One of a kind.
