The invitation to “Date Night” from Hassett Lincoln of Wantagh meant an opportunity to not only test-drive the 2014 Lincoln MKZ, their sleek luxury sedan, but to cruise around the town with a new car for the night.

At first look, I notice the stunning design that is the signature Lincoln split-wing front grill.   Our salesman, Doug Hacker, gave us the full concierge treatment, introducing us to the MKZ ‘s luminous dashboard with safety features galore, driver assist technology, Bluetooth wireless and the advanced audio sound system. Now we’re ready for a good time, as my wife and I — music playing loud—were on our way to celebrate my birthday.

Hello, Again: Brooklyn

In the video below you’re going to meet Amar and Rachel. These two love birds are long time New Yorkers that have driven the streets of Brooklyn more times than anyone cares to count. However, when Amar and Rachel took a drive through Brooklyn in the new Lincoln MKZ the other day they were able to see Brooklyn in a new light.

Watch the video below to see what we mean:


Pretty cool, isn’t it? The sun roof on the MKZ essentially turns the car into a convertible and uncovers what you normally would not be able to see.

If you would like to take the new 2013 MKZ for a drive like Amar and Rachel, stop by Hassett Automotive in Wantagh, NY. Any one of our sales team members would love to accompany you on a test drive and tell you more about this beautiful car.

See you soon!

New Lincoln MKZ and MKS go to war on Potholes

With winter now behind us, you might think that bumpy, pothole filled roads are gone for the time being. However, we’ve noticed that a lot of roads still have many potholes, and my tires have not really been appreciating them very much. In fact, I’m surprised I haven’t popped a tire one of those bad boys yet.

Thankfully Lincoln has developed some ground-breaking technology (no pun intended) that is sure to give you some peace of mind whenever you drive on pothole-covered roads. Essentially, the new Lincoln MKZ and MKS have a computer system that is constantly monitoring road conditions, and whenever it notices something like a pothole, it adjusts the suspension appropriately.

USA Today explains this technology very well. “When the system finds a pothole, it instantly tightens damper control to prevent the wheel and tire from sinking all the way in. The system is so quick that the experience of the front wheels allows for quick calculations knowing the rear wheels are about to pass over the same hole.”

And according to Brian Naspinsky, Lincoln Vehicle Integration engineer, the system “is always active, and it underpins the expanded dynamic capabilities of the new MKS.” The new 2013 MKS and MKZ are available now at Hassett Automotive! Stop by today to take one for a test drive and see how smart, sexy, and sophisticated these vehicles are first-hand. See you soon!
