Ford has lowered the MPG rating of the Lincoln MKZ hybrid. Ford says that approximately 200,000 customer s are affected, and those customers will be given cash payments.

The adjustment applies to vehicles other than the Lincoln MKZ hybrid, but for those who have the MKZ hybrid, they will be getting payments of $1,050.

The problem is from an improperly calibrated dynamometer that was used to determine fuel economy ratings.

“We apologize to our customers and will provide goodwill payments to affected owners. We also are taking steps to improve our processes and prevent issues like this from happening again,” Ford CEO Alan Mulally said in a statement today.

I bought my MKZ Hybrid on Wednesday. I'm wondering how I prevent from getting lost in the 'gap' of buying right before the announcement. While I signed all of the documents, I haven't registered it yet...

FWIW, I used lower calculations for my selection process when deciding on which car to buy due the the real world MPG feedback I was reading online. Don't get me wrong, I still want my $1,050.00! :)
My sticker says 45/45/45. I signed all the docs and drove off Last Wednesday night, (6/11). The revised MPG were released two days later on Friday, 6/13.

I haven't checked with the dealer yet, I am waiting for them to call me when the registration paperwork is ready.
I third that motion. Please post when/if you receive your $1,050 check.

I double checked with the dealership and they said that I would be hearing from Lincoln directly.

I just received my check today, (9/8/14). Lincoln had a couple of my address numbers inverted, so mail was going to the incorrect address. I think the check, (FedEx) was sent to the 'wrong' address originally.
