No help on the MKZ, but when I traded my 2011 MKS for my 2014 MKZ-h, the 19" Michelin Pilot tires still had 8/32" tread with 37,000 miles on them. I would think that the lighter MKZ would not wear as...

No change. We went to Vegas yesterday and coming back when we climbed the Spring Mountain pass, the engine was just as loud. I tried without using the ACC, but I had to give it so much throttle that...

Todd,
Do you think that us "newbies" will get anything? After all, we did buy after the window stickers were edited. (At least mine was.)

Question Excessive engine noise going up a grade

We just got our 2014 hybrid a week ago. When going up a relatively steep grade, the engine gets quite loud. Is this normal, and will it quiet down when it gets broken in?

Still, on a trip...

Regarding the battery: if you are referring to the vertical bar that fills with blue, mine fills completely when coming down from the top of a mountain pass between Las Vegas and Pahrump. Whether...

Smile New to MKZ, previous MKS owner
