    I am interested in knowing what people are paying for their MKZ hybrid. Thanks!

    I know of someone who just bought one so (hopefully) they should be posting about their experience shortly

    Guilty as charged (I asked PF to set this up, thanks)! We got it a week ago, $2k off list. Not a great deal (especially because all the rebates and other deals don't apply to the hybrid), but right in line with the Edmunds TMV calculator. I was in a weak bargaining position, I wanted the electronics package (backup camera + THX), but without a sunroof (I need every mm of headroom I can get). Only could find one at any dealer in the area.

    To rub salt in that wound, we got a mailing from Ford the week before, $750 Best Buy card for any Lincoln purchase!*
    *excluding hybrids... :mad:

    I had been considering the FFH, but I wanted leather, can't get that w/o a sunroof in a FFH, so this worked out fine for me.

    So far so good, still learning the ropes, getting 36 mpg around town on first tank. Good combination of ride and handling, firmer than my '96 ES300, but better handling.

    Had out of state (AL) dealer agreed on $38K in white w/ult pkg, lists at 41,370 but went local (FL) and paid a grand more. Didn't want to drive that far and re-hassle trade that was kept separate. Awesome gadge-gration and near silent and silky smooth ride, bravo Lincoln engineers!

    You'll save about a grand if you locate & buy from dealer with car on their lot. This is because the original dealer keeps holdback (on ours it was $815). Also, swapping/finding car means that dealer passes on fee to pick up/swap on to you, other than that they all pay the same for the car.

    Kudos to Ford & Lincoln for not being greedy and charging no extra for a hybrid. Only had it a few days and we love it, can you tell? Guiltless luxury abounds.
  • I got an MKZ in November that included moon roof and navigation packages for about $37.9k The car has performed as advertised, although the mileage has been about 35 in the cold weather. Handles well, even in the snow, reasonably peppy, and very quiet, with smooth ride, but not too mushy.

    I know it's a bit past Feb 4, but I'll bite -- 11,000 miles since I purchased in mid-November. In all, it's been a very good purchase. Great comfort, few quality issues, real-world 38 mpg (winter E10 gas). My only real complaints are poor dealer support for a luxury brand, a few options that should've been standard, sunglass holder that needs cushioning installed, and mud guards that don't match the contour of the rear bumper. Bottom line is that except for the dealership, good luxury value I wouldn't trade for any car out there.

  • Why is Lincoln using PLASTIC HUBCAPS on a $41K Hybrid car??????? This is deceit, fraud andI feel totally cheated! In this time and age it's not what I expect from a "Luxury" carmaker... Plastic Hubcaps...Really??! I will consider suing Ford for fraud!
  • texasestexases Posts: 5,424
    They're doing this because people want the chrome wheel 'look', and chrome over aluminum tends to peel and flake after a while, causing air leaks. The 'hubcaps' conceal a regular alloy wheel. You can get straight alloy wheels if you want.

    My girlfriend is looking into leasing a 2011-2012 MKZ Hybrid. With the 2013 MKZ about to come out, what is the best rates that people have experienced? Do they even have lease deals on the 2011? The dealer told us that Leases only started on 2012 models.
  • texasestexases Posts: 5,424
    I don't know about lease rates, but is there no way she can wait for the 2013? It'll be quite an improvement, I understand. But I like my 2011...
  • kevin111kevin111 Posts: 991
    Thank you. She has a lease that expires at the end of May, which is the issue.

    I agree the plastic wheels are disappointing. Also, unsure but my 2012 MKZ Hybrid does not track well on open highways. I have to constantly keep hands on wheel and steer the MKZ Hybrid to keep in center of hyway. In other words, wheels slightly verring right or left the MKZ heads in that direction. Also, steering seems very stiff as well as the ride feeling very stiff and jolting. The MKZ Hybrid is one month old maybe needs a greater break in period.

    Mine has no problem on the freeway, I'd make sure the tires are correctly inflated (buy a high quality gauge and check first thing in the morning). If they are, I'd have the dealer check all four wheels for alignment. As to the ride, it is firmer than some, that's not a problem for me.
  • Hi - I ordered mine in Sept. Have been continually stonewalled about realistic delivery date since. Customer care seems to be "care-less" and it's hard to become a customer if they don't deliver. What's the hold up? :confuse:
