Hey newbie here with a '14 MKZ Hybrid on order.

Just wanted to chime in on this one. My brother in law works for a Ford dealer so we will qualify for D plan pricing, which is $100 more than A plan. A plan is the best and is for Ford/Lincoln employees, not dealership employees.

So the pricing on my MKZ is right at $1500 under invoice. That's on a $46800 MSRP so a base MKZ D plan price might be less than $1500 under invoice, closer to $1300, who knows.

I don't want anyone thinking I'm pounding my chest about getting D plan pricing as I was just trying to answer the above posts :). In fact we'll see if I end up getting it because mysteriously, as we get closer to the car coming in, it's been hard to make contact with the brother in law and get the necessary papers and the pin # from him. Uh oh.....

Glad to be part of the forum and thanks.

I think you were talking to me? If so, I don't have it yet. It's on order and was just built a week ago on the 12th. Probably have it within a few weeks or less I think.

I'll definitely let you know on the mpg. I'm pretty anal when it comes comparing the computer vs hand calculating, yearly tracking etc., so I should be able to give some accurate numbers.

hand is always the most accurate. From what I understand most on board calculators track fuel flow not actual consumption so often times the figures are not a true representation...
Oh yeah, definitely aware of that. I just like to always compare the two but will ultimately go with hand calculation. Also like to check it over at least a couple tanks in case I'm off on the level between 1st and last fillup. I do write every fillup down though so can pick just about any amount of time or miles and check it.

Some guys put on 200 miles and fillup. If they don't spend some time playing with the nozzle to get the gas level to where they can see it on both fillups, it can start to vary 4 mpg and up real easy with just a 1/2 gallon off.

I realize most everyone knows this but just clarifying I try to do it the most accurate way I can.

I'm tracking the Z on the rail right now and it went from 4/5 eta yesterday to 4/9 this morning and a couple hours later it's 4/11 eta! I'm thinking it may be going backwards now ;)

LOL, its likely thats based on shipping projections. They wont just ship your MKZ by itself right. They're likely tracking new bespoke orders and waiting until they can fill a full rail car before yours moves out.

Keep in mind I have no idea what I'm talking about, just rationalizing based on what seems logical :D
Very true. I should've mentioned it was in Nogales, AZ when I was getting the updates so would assume the cars might have been filled already at the plant but who knows on the logistics of the rail. I'm sure there is a bunch of connections and possible waiting for other cars to fill the line for the trip North.
