This car looks great and is FUN to drive. Easy to use technology. I get 40 to 43 mpg on my daily commute to work. Best trip so far got 63 mpg on a 5 mile trip running nearly all electric. Jaw dropper experience was a Chattanooga to suburban Maryland trip (610 miles) on ONE tank of gas. The fill-up in Chattanooga got us home.
When I purchased my previous car 3 years ago, I was certain that it would be a hybrid, and yet I went for something sporty instead fearing the "plain" lines of the Prius or the "sleepy" look of the Honda would be something I would grow tired of in short order. The idea of 50 miles per gallon continued to haunt me. Everytime the price of gas went up, so did my angst about my purchase decision. Last month I again turned to CarMax to replace my sporty red car. I was determined this time to go Hybrid and yet the more I looked at the Prius and Honda, the more those old thoughts returned. Then I saw it, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. Love at First Sight. I put on my facebook page that "Life is too short not to drive a Lincoln". 40 miles per gallon and a sweet ride is wonderful. I highly reccomd this car to anyhone who does not want to give up luxury in exchange for unbeleivable milage. Be aware that the Hybrid batteries reduce the trunk size abit and there is no pass through from trunk to back seat.
After 30 years of Honda quality and reliability, the decision to go non-Honda and hybrid was tough, but this car made the jump easy. Fabulous fuel efficiency, great styling, powerful acceleration, whisper quiet interior, and amazing technology that is easy to use. This car is fun and a joy to drive. My 15 mile commute routinely exceeds 50 mpg because the electric motor kicks in often. On level roads with speed below 48 mph the electric mode is usually engaged. The transition between the gas motor and the electric mode is seamless and barely discernible. No special skills required. The car does it all for you automatically. I fill up every 2 weeks rather than the once a week I'd been used to with all my previous cars. I am completely satisfied with this car and have received more comments and compliments about it than any I've had before.
