2012 Lincoln MKZ Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lincoln's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lincoln? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MKZ’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my MKZ's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Lincoln MKZ transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Lincoln's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
