Lincoln Mkz - A Very Nice Upgrade To The Ford Fusion —

My previous cars were a Cadillac STS and a Jaguar X-type. I really like both of those cars, but the maintenance cost was higher than I wanted to deal with. I still wanted some luxury features, decent power, but with greater reliability and lower maintenance. I found what I was looking for in my 2009 Lincoln MKZ. I got a premium THX sound system, heated and cooled ventilated leather seats, power windows, sun roof, a strong V6 engine and good body styling. It is a good car for trips with the family as well as being a good commute car. I have even done legs of vacation trips from the backseat of my car, where I was quite comfortable. My mileage has been running about 19-20 MPG, with the lowest at about 18 in traffic or with a lot of snow and as such as 22-24 for pure highway driving. The AWD system has been great. One of my other cars is a Dodge Durango, and while the Lincoln is not a 4x4 it does the best in the snow of any non-4x4 I have owned. My brother owns a similar year Ford Fusion Sport. Having driven both cars, I find them very similar. I think the seats and sound system on the Lincoln are better, the styling is a bit different, they are otherwise very similar. On the other hand, the price difference between the Lincoln MKZ and similarly equipped Ford Fusions was only about 10 - 15%. That being the case, why not get the Lincoln?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable daily driver, nice exterior and interior styling, good power, nice interior, reliable, very good AWD in the snow and rain,

Cons: drives better with mid-grade or premium gas, does not feel like a premium vehicle, compared to others in a similar class, door panels feel cheap compared to the nice seats
