Great price, excellent features and amazing performance!

2012 Lincoln MKZ Base

My 2012 Lincoln MKZ drives well, and is a great performing car. The interior is very lavish with all push buttons on the 'dash.' It sync all my music, hands free calling so you won't be distracted while driving. If you have kids the turn down back row seating is a must! You can carry large loads and camping equipment always fits perfectly. Anti locking brakes and rear reverse is a must, especially if you have a young driver, it totally adds to safety. I must say my favorite feature is the side window with the extra ' mirror view' when changing lanes!

My vehicle has an attention getting body style, sunroof, and fog lights.

2012 Lincoln MKZ Base

I bought my Lincoln MKZ used with approximately 20,000 miles. I have had no problems with the car except that I backed into the rear drivers side door. It was very expensive to get fixed. The performance is outstanding. You can choose automatic transmission or shift option. The shift option uses a lot more gas than the automatic. The car is fast. The reliability is 100%. The comfort is the best I have ever had. The suspension is smooth. I love the heated and air conditioned seats. The radio will sync with my phone. I love my car.

Comfortable ride, great safety features and very comfortable.

2012 Lincoln MKZ Base

My Lincoln is a very comfortable driving car, the heated and cooled seats are the best. This was my first car with the backup camera and when I get into a vehicle that does not have it I miss it. Being able to program the placement of the drivers seat for 2 drivers is also a nice feature. I have noticed a small vibration when traveling at 60 mph but no warning have some up for it to be serviced. I would purchase this vehicle again in a heartbeat.

My car is great it has a moonroof

2012 Lincoln MKZ Base

I really love my car it is an all wheel drive and drives really good in the winter. I have had no issues with it except for having to replace the battery every year. I also love the backup camera that is in it with the beeper. It also has great gas mileage. You can change the radio station volume on the steering wheel as you are driving.

Love the color of the one we chose and the leather seats aslo. It is the best vehicle we have purchased in a very long time. It will serve us well for many years to come

Best car I ever had will get another one

2012 Lincoln MKZ Base

I love the classy look of the MKZ. The inside is very classy as well. It is a very reliable car for me. It rides very smooth on the highway. The one thing that I have is that the heating and cooling elements on the seats went out last year and it is 900$ to fix them. The leather gets hot in the summer on your legs stick.

- Bp P
