Great little Lincoln, shows it's heritage by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/02/2009. Trim: 2010 Lincoln MKZ FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: First things first, its American and that pretty much sums it up. Ford has come a long way in the quality assurance area and are building excellent vehicles. This one hits all my needs, comfort, mileage, acceptable performance, and some of those "gotta have" bells and whistles.
Cons: Nothing yet.
Overall review: Love the car, enough luxury to make traveling fun again. Really like the heated or cooled seats. Nice in this hot Florida weather.

MKZ -FWD buy of a lifetime! by Toronto on 11/30/2012. Trim: 2010 Lincoln MKZ FWD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: My MKZ FWD is excellent. Best car I ever owned. I was with GM products for 30 yrs, when they took the Bail Out I liked the idea Ford hung in there and didn't need help! This car was the buy of a life time. You think your're in a BMW with the performance and ride but smoother. The excelleration is fantastic and what is unbelievable your are driving a Sporty,Luxury car and only putting Regular gas in it.The mileage is good but not having to use premium grades makes the mileage look great when you add savings of not using premium.Long drives are enjoyable and all passengers are impressed with the car.
Cons: Nothing really. The only option that I miss and living in Canada is the option of switching the speedometer from Metric to English when travelling in States.Also the speed reading displayed in Numbers would be a nice feature.
Overall review: The only problem for FORD is this car with never be outdated in regards to styling and having no problems with the car, I probably won't need a new one for at least ten years! Again the big plus with this car is it only requires Regular Unleaded gas which is a big plus in the overall cost of driving.

Very nice vehicle by Dino Marchetti on 06/20/2012. Trim: 2010 Lincoln MKZ FWD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This is a fun car to drive - Rides very good for a smaller vehicle & has a large trunk. Very quiet & economical (22-23 MPG in general driving & 27-29 on highway @ about 73 MPH) Handles well in snow w/little bear-tracking. Like the ambient lighting inside & other nice touches. Performance is very good - peppy & smooth acceleration - Fast when passing on two lane roads (Will hit 90 plus real fast.) Reliablitiy has been outstanding - Only issue a failed LED tail light covered under warranty at 36,000 miles.
Cons: Wish the steering wheel was power trim & tilt w/memory (Think that was cured in 2011?) Car is too low making entrance a bit difficult for taller people - Several have banged their heads getting in.
Overall review: This is a very nice vehicle - One of the best I have owned in most respects! Only change would be about 1-2 inch higher roof level to allow easier entrance for taller folks.

Entry-level Luxury and Decent Performance at a very reasonable cost by Greg on 01/13/2011. Trim: 2010 Lincoln MKZ AWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: + Tons of standard amenities + Heated and cooled seats + Microsoft Sync + Sirus Satellite Radio and Sirus Travel Link + Styling. This car looks great! + AWD. I drive this to work every day. This car handles very well in the snow. + NAV Package
Cons: - Gas mileage on the AWD model isn't great - Standard sound system is good, but not great. Spring for the upgraded stereo system if you can! - Driver's armrest on the center console doesn't provide enough positions
Overall review: I purchased my 2010 MKZ new from dealer stock, getting a very reasonable price on a 2010 model as they were clearing them out. I've had the vehicle for several months, and it has yet to disappoint in any serious way. I'm most pleased with styling, the decent performance, and the ability of the car to handle snow. The seats are comfortable and get hot fast in the winter. The Microsoft Sync system works well, although it occasionally misses a voice command and I need to retry. The biggest complaint is gas mileage. The AWD model is supposed to get something like 17 MPG in the city. I'm actually only getting about 14 (according to the car, I haven't manually verified yet). I do expect mileage to improve as things warm up since the car idles to warm up (obviously burning extra fuel) and since it won't be as efficient when it's cold out. Additionally, visits to the dealer for routine service are always very pleasent and professional (and free for the first 4 years!). Recommended!

Pretty darn good value. by JT of Youngstown on 06/17/2010. Trim: 2010 Lincoln MKZ FWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I am currently averaging 27 MPG which for this style of vehicle is excellent.
Cons: The fit of some of the body parts is off by more than I would expect for this model.
Overall review: I like the car and in all likelihood would buy another one.
