    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    The only problem with cars like the "MKZ" is that any joe has one. It was kind of cool the first month it came out, but now it's another Honda Civic or Toyota Camry. It's no longer unique. It got old WAY TOO DAMN FAST!

    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    The MKZ is certainly not getting old in the sales dept. It is continuing to head up, especially with the JD Power results. I agree that the 08 CTS will be a great car - but the 07 MKZ has available AWD, cooled seats, no extra charge colors, options you buy ala carte, and you can get it all for under $35K MSRP.

    Yes, it shares a platform with a lot of other cars in the Ford stable and the engine points the wrong way, but many buyers don't fret about those things.

    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    The MKZ is a nice buy and does have some power and all. You won't see me in one though. As I said above, the reason is because it is getting too common and seen too often. That's where "pimping it" comes in. It's worth the money though and has a nice interior and, as you said, great options. I think a red one would be best! Okay, so maybe I would take one...

    A red one like mine? (I really should take a pic without snow in the background!)

    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    Not having driven one, I like the looks, and the idea of the MKZ. Based on reviews of the car, which talk about it's soft, coddling ride, and smooth engine, and the elegant appearance, it sounds like a Town Car for somebody who doesn't need a WHOLE Town Car, if you catch my drift.

    Now that the new CTS is out, maybe I should take one for a test drive and compare it to my MKZ.

    MKZ seems like an ideal luxury car for people who want to stay under the radar.

    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    the new CTS blows the doors right off the MKZ.i mean seriously when you compare both cars,there's no comparison .the MKZ is a Mazda.the CTS has its own body,and not to mention 304bhp DI V6.it's also a REAR-WHEEL DRIVEN CAR. Not a car with the motor turned sideways.AWD or not,the MKZ is still a FWD based box.how could somebody even try to compare these two cars???? it's like taking a Knife to a gunfight.they flopped on the Lincoln LS which i thought was a better car than the Zephyr/MKZ or whatever you call the little Mazda.

    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    Wow, there are just WAY too many people who equate horsepower to 'better'. What happened to things such as interior quality, ride quality, build quality, etc.? Along those lines, then, the Viper is vastly superior to the CTS. Which it isn't, really, I mean geez, you can melt the bodywork with those sidepipes. In terms of quality, the MKZ is rated every bit as high as the new CTS. Ride, handling, quietness, and build quality are all top notch in the MKZ. And with 263 hp, and Ford's own direct injection engines forthcoming, it ain't no slouch in the hp department, either.

    Re: CTS v. Lincoln MKZ

    From what I found on the net, the new 300 HP CTS does
    0-60....................6.53s
    1/4 mile................14.98s
    1/4 mile mph..........97.30 MPH
    60-0.....................116 ft

    MKZ with AWD
    0-60.....................6.57s
    1/4 mile.................15.10s
    1/4 mile mph..........95.10 MPH
    60-0.....................133 ft

    MKZ can hold its own against a car that has more hp (41 HP to be exact)
