Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

I am considering a Lincoln Aviator to better occupy our needs until which time that I can find a Porsche Cayenne Turbo for sale with the desired colors, and equipment. Does anyone have any experience with them, and have any real world experience with them. My time with them has been limited to a week or less, and I am hoping for someone with real world experience.

Re: Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

This particular Aviator is a combination of the correct equipment, condition, and miles that begs my consideration despite the fact that I truly do not need two additional cars in the fold.

Re: Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

I thought you'd be lining up for the new Escalade?

The Aviator was only modestly different than the Explorer/Mountaineer of the same era, albeit a pretty good SUV.

Having said that a huge upgrade from your 2000 Mountaineer.

Good luck finding a clean one, they were not overly big sellers.

have you consider the Navi germeezy? or it is too big? the Aviator is a model from 2002-2005 maybe you could look a 2005 Navigator, IMHO that was the most beautiful SUV in that time

Re: Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

My interest is truthfully limited to this particular car due to a combination of condition, miles, and equipment.

Re: Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

Well, we used to own two Mercury Mountaineers (I think those were MY02 & 04 - but I'm not sure on that one). The '02 was the first vehicle we leased after we moved to the States. It was our rental right after we arrived and my mum loved it so much that leased one a week later..

So while I can't comment on the Aviator, I can tell for sure that the Mountaineer was a very solid SUV and we had no issues - neither on the 02 nor on the 04.

Current rides:
2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Black Label
2017 Audi Q7 Prestige

Re: Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

iirc the Mountaineer had a kind of AWD system but the Explorer's was more of a 4wd
no idea what the Aviator had


it'd be interesting tho
if they bring out a New Aviator while you still have this one
& its value goes UP from your purchase price

Re: Lincoln Aviator Experiences?

My sister had a Mountaineer of the same era and, while I was too young and frankly didn't care enough to know what the exact problem was, her car seemed to develop some serious electrical issues towards the end of its lease.

Enough to turn it in early WITHOUT a replacement ready.

I woud get it simply for the 4.6 DOHC. I had one with a supercharger on it. (bought it that way) Crazy fun!!!!!!!

They can develop some annoying little issues but it is a pretty solid truck.
