Guilty as charged (I asked PF to set this up, thanks)! We got it a week ago, $2k off list. Not a great deal (especially because all the rebates and other deals don't apply to the hybrid), but right in line with the Edmunds TMV calculator. I was in a weak bargaining position, I wanted the electronics package (backup camera + THX), but without a sunroof (I need every mm of headroom I can get). Only could find one at any dealer in the area.
To rub salt in that wound, we got a mailing from Ford the week before, $750 Best Buy card for any Lincoln purchase!*
I had been considering the FFH, but I wanted leather, can't get that w/o a sunroof in a FFH, so this worked out fine for me.
So far so good, still learning the ropes, getting 36 mpg around town on first tank. Good combination of ride and handling, firmer than my '96 ES300, but better handling.
#6 of 19 $38K w/Ultimate Pkg Possible

Had out of state (AL) dealer agreed on $38K in white w/ult pkg, lists at 41,370 but went local (FL) and paid a grand more. Didn't want to drive that far and re-hassle trade that was kept separate. Awesome gadge-gration and near silent and silky smooth ride, bravo Lincoln engineers!
You'll save about a grand if you locate & buy from dealer with car on their lot. This is because the original dealer keeps holdback (on ours it was $815). Also, swapping/finding car means that dealer passes on fee to pick up/swap on to you, other than that they all pay the same for the car.
Kudos to Ford & Lincoln for not being greedy and charging no extra for a hybrid. Only had it a few days and we love it, can you tell? Guiltless luxury abounds.
#7 of 19 purchased MKZ hybrid in November

I got an MKZ in November that included moon roof and navigation packages for about $37.9k The car has performed as advertised, although the mileage has been about 35 in the cold weather. Handles well, even in the snow, reasonably peppy, and very quiet, with smooth ride, but not too mushy.

I know it's a bit past Feb 4, but I'll bite -- 11,000 miles since I purchased in mid-November. In all, it's been a very good purchase. Great comfort, few quality issues, real-world 38 mpg (winter E10 gas). My only real complaints are poor dealer support for a luxury brand, a few options that should've been standard, sunglass holder that needs cushioning installed, and mud guards that don't match the contour of the rear bumper. Bottom line is that except for the dealership, good luxury value I wouldn't trade for any car out there.
