Lincoln MKZ: Test Drives
If the driver pushes down on the accelerator about 1/4 inch the MKZ will easily jump about 10 MPH just like that. Even when the MKZ is going up a hill. The interior of MKZ is wonderful. It is, one of the most comfortable cars I've ever been in. The front seats have so much room. Even for my 6'3" frame with the seat pulled all the way back. I had to bring the steering wheel towards me so I could comfortable reach the wheel. While at the same time the lady in the back seat had plenty of room in the back seat. I know somebody who has a 99 Town car and that MKZ put's that car to shame. The test drive lasted about 15 minutes as the lady guided me around downtown ATL.
I went over some pretty nasty pot holes and the MKZ soaked up the holes like they weren't even there. Also, some genius left the A/C seats on full blast and I froze my butt off. I couldn't figure out why I was so cold but I didn't have the main car A/C on. Also, the MKZ had 0 torque steer. Maybe some people might find some if they are doing 100 MPH, but during the drive the MKZ was as straight as an arrow under hard acceleration.
Now I can fully understand what people are talking about when they complain about the wide turning radius. It is way to wide !!! During the test drive I had to do a U turn in a gas station to return the car to the mall. The radius was so wide I had to stop; back up; turn the wheels and complete the turn in order to complete the U-turn. Well that's might be a small detail. I know if I was in my old Escort I could have made that turn no problem.
At the end of the drive the lady showed me the trunk and it was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. I really really think that Lincoln has a hit on there hands and I think they've got a winner. All I have to say is I had my heart set on the Fusion/Milan I might have to save a few extra pennies and get a MKZ. If the MKZ cannot impress people enough to make them think that Lincoln can run with Lexus I do not know what will. MKZ is a wonderful car. One would have to be a complete fool to not seriously look at this car. And to make things even better The MKZ is $100 cheaper than the Zephyr
