New to the MKZ world

Well don't know where to start, just bought a 2014 MKZ Hybrid Reserve (Silver, with Hazel Nut interior). I have had it now for 2 weeks. Enjoy it very much, I am averaging 44 mpg. I am still trying to figure out if I should coast to a stop or apply slight brake pressure until I stop. Also, there is a gage I am trying to figure out, it says it is the Fuel History, it looks like it is giving me a feed back of the last 30 minutes of driving, I guess in 6 minute intervals. I miss my good lumbar support, had a Ram Longhorn. I wanted the Multi-Contoured seat option but didn't want to wait 6-8 weeks for delivery. Maybe one day they will decided to make options available to add to your car after purchase. My other vehicles are 2014 Camaro RS (my wife's car), and 2013 Ford Fiesta (my daughters car). I decided to purchase a hybrid to see what all the fuss is about getting better gas mileage. Didn't like the Volt, and the Fusion was okay but I really like the looks of the MKZ.

I hope so. Going from 19 to 44 is a very big change. The ride is good but not like my truck. But it is good enough.

The problem with hybrids right now is you won't be making your money back on it till years later, still good to buy a hybrid.

Welcome to the forum.

Shouldn't you use the brakes to stop in order to activate the brake recharging thing?

post of some pictures of your new ride if you get the chance.

Looks great and is most forgiving when it comes to keeping it clean, which for all silvers is the same case
