2010 Lincoln MKZ
2010 Lincoln MKZ
Based on the same platform as the Ford Fusion, the MKZ is Lincolns entry into the entry level luxury sedan segment. This is a category already stuffed with models from all of the top auto makers from the US, Germany, and Japan. Any car would have a tough time in such company and the MKZ manages to stay above water, even in such company.

This model, once known as the Zephyr, isn't' the fastest car in its class. Though it won't be at the back of the pack either. The fusion chassis it rides on was rated Motor Trends car of the year for 2010, so the MKZ is already doing pretty well for itself. Power comes from a 263 HP, 249 Ft. Lbs of Torque, 3.5 liter V-6 engine feeding its power through a 6 speed automatic. Standard is front wheel drive, but an all wheel drive option, controlled electronically to transfer power side to side and front to back, is available as well.

New for 2010 is a Sport appearance package. This finally offers 18 inch alloy wheels to this model. The package also included sport tuned suspension and a host of other options.

Good news -- it seems the bow-wave grille doesn’t hurt aerodynamics, as Ford announced the 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is rated at 41 mpg in the city. That's an identical rating to both the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid and the 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid.

Adopting a youthful, sporty image worked wonders for Cadillac, so it's no surprise to hear that Lincoln has decided to pursue a younger demographic with its new marketing campaign.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain all weather driver side accessory floor mats sold for use in model year 2006-2011 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, 2006 Lincoln Zephyr, and 2007-2011 Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured November 9, 2007, through October 31, 2010. The affected floor mats may move and possibly interfere with the accelerator pedal.
Consequences
The floor mat could shift such that it could interfere with the accelerator pedal, preventing its return to an idle position, which could result in unintended vehicle speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will install new replacement mats, free of charge. The recall began in July 2014. Owners may contact Ford's customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S07. NOTE: Vehicles built after October 31, 2010, while potentially equipped with the same floor mats, are equipped with a Brake Over Accelerator (BOA) feature that prevents simultaneous accelerator and brake application, allowing the vehicle to be safely stopped by pressing firmly and steadily on the brake pedal.
