new MKZ. dead battery. Dealer says i have to push brake pedal after shutting off car , or battery will die. true or false
I'd have to say false. Check your owners manual on that one.
Look at all the complaints involving the MKX and MKZ and dead batteries, Ford had admitted there was a rash of bad OEM batteries and had even issued a TSB about it, although I thought that was sorted out before your model year. It seems like your dealer is making that suggestion hoping to keep some computer module from activating when the car is off and draining the battery. You can read through all the TSBs here: http://www.lincolnproblems.com/tsbs/MKZ/ . Go through your owner's manual and see if there is anything in there like the dealer's suggestion, if not then they gave you a BS excuse.
Interesting, our 2014 MKZ has had no issues, but the wife has her foot on the brake when she shifts it to park and shuts it off. I'd say false and ask who at the dealership told you this? I would also ask them to show you in the owner's manual where it says this must be done. I would be more inclined to believe this if the service department told me this rather than the salesperson. Have you had an issue with the battery?
Our 2014 MKZ has been trouble free so far.
My 2018 MKX battery wouldn't start and I've only had my car for a few weeks. I'm calling the dealership tomorrow. I'm going to be furious if it happens again. btw, nothing was left on that would train the battery.
