Most Dependable Entry Premium Car, Two Years In a Row
The LINCOLN MKZ is the “Most Dependable Entry Premium Car” for the second year in a row according to J.D. Power and Associates.*
“The Lincoln transformation toward becoming a world-class luxury brand is underway,” said Ken Czubay, Ford Motor Company Vice President, U.S. Sales, Marketing & Service. ” It’s personally gratifying to our Lincoln-dedicated team that third-parties are seeing the results of the Lincoln team’s long-term quality focus.”
This year’s study was based on responses from almost 44,000 owners of 2008 model year vehicles. The three-year, new-car dependability survey covers 202 different problem areas that may occur within eight major vehicle categories, such as engine and transmission, seats and exterior. The rankings are determined by the number of problems reported per 100 vehicles.
And seven new or significantly refreshed models are planned in the next three years. The Lincoln team continues to push even harder to deliver class-leading technology, standout vehicle design and new powertrains, all with an eye toward long-term dependability.
