New towed needed

Two years ago we bought our 2012 Jeep Liberty Limited because it met all of our needs at that time. Since then, though, our needs have changed, and we'd like to get something that is more comfortable and gets better mileage.

Yesterday we looked at a Focus. On paper it is great, but it is a bit more difficult getting in and out than I'd like (too low to the ground). Also, the backseat is pretty small, although we were surprised to find that even with the front seats pretty far back there was still enough room for two adults to get into the back seat and not feel like they had to store their legs elsewhere.

We would prefer a 4-door-sedan to a wagon or SUV. Anyone tow a Lincoln MKZ?

Thanks, Dan. Yes, I had read that thread. Don't know if the extra bulbs were factory or not, but our Jeep has an extra bulb in each tail light for the towed lights. We had the Blue Ox baseplate and Invisibrake installed for us, and I don't know what part they did and what part they were able to use.
