your new car
« on: January 17, 2019, 08:18:51 am »
Scott, how is your new MKZ so far?  My wife has driven only Lincoln or Mercury cars since 1980. Well there were 2 Mustangs in that span. We have had great results and never regretted buying any of them. Hope you enjoy similar results.    Dave R.

1969 R code Mach 1 4 speed restoration. My occasional driver.
Formerly:

1998 plain jane 6 cyl. auto (her DD)
1974 fastback 4 cyl. auto ( her DD)
Seems to be a pattern here.

I still have less than 400 miles on it, but so far, so good. It's quite a change from my Charger SRT8. It has about the same HP (400 for the MKZ vs. 425 for the Charger), but it's MUCH more refined and comfortable.

She looked at the MKZ and liked it very much but after wheeling her '00 Mustang GT vert for 120K miles she was ready for something that would get her out of the driveway in the snow. Her GT was miserable in a couple of inches of snow. She wanted something with a higher line of sight for a change. So she chose the MKX. Loves it. The MKZ is a great ride.   Dave R.
