Mine must not work. I guess when i goto the dealership im gonna have to sit in a 2014 and see. Because I saw a 2013 f250 and there seat coolers worked alot better than mine too


I will admit the back is weak compared to the butt cushion. I do notice it cooling more when I get in when I am all sweaty. LOL

Included is a link for spreadsheet of 6 different cars (4 being MKZ Hybrid and Fusion Hybrid + Nissan Altima) & also a gas mpg savings calculator on second tab of excel sheet

 

Figured Someone may stumble upon it and its way easier then making up your own.... like i just did.....

With the very high priced Fusion Hybrid I have on order and the pretty descent priced MKz Hybrid I have on the sheet (No Heated Steering Wheel/Rear Heated Seats/Premium Floor Mats/19" Wheels/Panaromic Roof) the payment same term at 60 months is only $54.23 more a month for the MkZ Hybrid.....  :happy feet:

I didn't look that close at the titanium after they couldn't get me a white platinum one I decided to move on.. That's when I got lucky with my special order that the guy didn't take delivery

The deciding factor for me between the HyTi and the MKZ was the fact you can only get a Black leather interior in the HyTi, which I will not own.  Not just because of the added heat factor here in north Texas, but the "sitting in a cave" feel I get when surrounded by all that black.  I have never understood why manufacturers have the take-it-or-leave-it attitude on certain option packages.  Besides, the leather in the Z is sooooo soft and comfy.  :)

Really?  Seems like if you can afford the $8k difference in price it's a no brainer.  :)  I'm with you though.  I don't particular like black either but I will say that in the long run it does hold up better.  Light colored leather doesn't handle jeans well (they turn blue-ish over time), and the surface creases that leather develops are much less noticeable on black.

Okay, I guess I miss-typed. I should have said that the black only interior was the deal killer. Price was not a factor in my decision on which to purchase. Options and looks won out with the MKZ. I agree light leather requires more work to keep nice, but if taken care of, light leather looks fantastic as it ages. :)

Ford announced today a recall for the MKZ Hybrid:

Separately, Ford said today that it is recalling 7,329 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid cars to reprogram the powertrain control module. It said a manufacturing error in a sensor could cause the module to incorrectly think the car is in neutral and allow the transmission to shift out of park without the brake pedal applied. This could cause the vehicle to move unexpectedly and violates government regulations regarding theft protection and rollaway prevention.
Ford said it is not aware of any accidents, injuries or thefts related to that issue. The recall covers 2013 and 2014 MKZ Hybrid cars built through Sept. 24.

They also announced two more recalls for the Escape with the 1.6 engine relating to fire dangers. If I hadn't gotten the Hybrid, my second choice would have been the 1.6 Fusion. So glad I got the FFH.

Oh wonderful!  I looked on MyLincoln and yep, I am being recalled for this issue.  Fanfriggintastic!  :ohsnap:   I guess I will have them perform the express window up TSB and let them try to get my DRLs working while the computer is hooked up.  Thanks for ruining my Thanksgiving B25Nut!!   ;)

I logged into MyLincoln yesterday for the first time and the recall notice was the first thing I noticed.  I also saw them mention it on the news last night.  Doesn't sound too serious, but it looks like they'll be able to address it while my car is in the shop getting the bumper fixed.

Well, I give Ford two thumbs up for doing this before something bad happened to someone. They found a glitch in the very complicated system and they are fixing it before someone gets hurt.   :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

The one thing I always notice when I drive my wife's Fusion (vs my Genesis) is the auto-tilt of the steering wheel upon egress. Does the MKZ have this?  That and HID headlights..


Edited by Aquineas, 27 November 2013 - 02:05 PM.

Bordeaux Reserve Ford Fusion Titanium ordered 5/6/2013, Window Sticker 6/22/2013, Built 6/28/2013, Delivered 7/12/2013.

 

I'd rather you tell me something I already know 1,000 times, than not tell me something I don't know once.

There is supposedly an exit mode that my dealer enabled when we were going through the settings on my car, but nothing moves for me when I get out.  I already have the steering wheel as far up as it will go and the seat as far back as it will go so that probably has something to do with it.
