Review 1 of 20

Price Paid:  $17500.00 from CarMax Towncenter (K

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 Lincoln Aviator

Strengths:
When facing the front of this SUV, you will fall in love with the smooth classy looking front frame, the shape, and angle of the head lights. My SUV is white, and the coat looks great when kept washed and waxed. Even the original Lincoln rims look good on this SUV. The seats have several adjustable positions, from low to seating up high. There is a button for adjusting the pedals to allow for vertically challenged people to a tall person. The moon roof or sun roof has a slide back cover to allow a solid interior look, you can choose to use the moon roof/sun roof button to open it at an angle or slide it all the way back; either way you can enjoy a great ride in either direction. It also has several storage areas on the door and two consoles between the first and second row of seats for small items to keep your suv clean. Wider front windshield view to avoid blind spots.

Weaknesses:
It does not have the automatac button in the rear of the suv like the Navigator,(so what).

Summary:
This vehicle was so close to being brand new; it was like a dream come true for me. Everything about it was in mint condition when I purchased it. The attention to details from the wood grain steering wheel to the fine leather seats was truly a luxury fitting the name Lincoln. For a mid-to-large size SUV, driving it is a very smooth ride. The outside sounds are so muffled out, you have to be very careful to be alert for emergency vehicles approaching you, it may be hard to hear them coming. This vehicle also has a third row seat which is very helpful when shopping for groceries at a large warehouse or other large items you need to bring home. The second row seats are split, and the handle to allow someone to access the third row seat is very simple to use to let the seat down and to slide forward.
Although the third row seat folds flat, it does leave a gap in between the second seat, it may be a slight inconvenience for some but not for my needs. I love this vehicle; (she) is silky smooth.

Review 2 of 20

Price Paid:  $21000.00 from Summerville Ford/Mer

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 Lincoln/Aviator

Strengths:
Beautiful fabricated interior, very up to date electronic features. AWD has worked excellent for me. I took this vehicle into a snow storm driving up a mountain side (not by choice) and it perfomed very well. All around classy car!

Weaknesses:
Second row seating is absolutely terrible. Electronic sensors are terrible and at this point (60,000mi) I wish I didn't have them. Transmission isn't great, but you can't expect much better after 60K miles.

Summary:
I love this car regardless of its flaws. I think its a elegant, classy build and its worth its weight in gold. I will continue to get it fixed until it becomes a hand me down car.

Review 3 of 20

Price Paid:  $34300.00 from Rodman Ford/Lincoln

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Lincoln/Aviator

Strengths:
Comfortable interior, heated and cooled front seats, premium sound system, smooth ride

Weaknesses:
Multiple warning systems glitches, transmission, tires

Summary:
Bought used with 17,000 miles. Car was like new. Very clean. At about 60,000 miles, started experiencing problems with tire pressure warning system. 60,000 miles later, dealer still can't resolve problem with faulty tire pressure warning signal. Replaced tires, monitoring valves to no avail. Recently, door ajar and liftgate ajar warning signals have become troublesome. At just over 100,000 miles, transmission became problematic - slipping at high rate of acceleration. Driving like my grandmother ever since, trying to avoid replacing transmission. Front windows have become troublesome, bouncing up and down while trying to close. This car was a solid choice through 60,000 miles, but ever since there has been one thing after another going wrong.

Review 4 of 20

Price Paid:  $42000.00 from Perry Lincoln Mercur

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Lincoln Aviator

Strengths:
Horse power. Passenger capacity. handling. Climate controls. Cargo space. Look and feel. Moon roof! DVD system. It is just great!

Weaknesses:
Light colored interior hard to keep clean with kids. Gas milage (I would not be caught dead driving a Mini-Van so this was my only other option!)

Summary:
I love this! I need to cart myself, my two kids, my girl friend, and her three kids around. The 3rd seat is perfect for kids and I have had my entire department in this car and they were comfortable. I get a lot of looks with this car. The 302 Hp V8 is great! I can easily make a night on the town in luxury and then head off to the hills with popup in tow for a weekend in the hills! I love this car! The drive is smooth and it hadnles very well. It is so quiet! It is not so imposing like the Navigator or Suburban, but meets many of my hauling needs. The climate control and everything is great! The AC/Heated seats are great! The controls on the wheel make things real easy. The seats are easy to reconfigure and easily fold away for maximum carrying capacity. It is really easy to pack 5 kids into it, toss in a DVD and make a long haul trip without even a peep from them!
