2003 Lincoln Aviator Premium Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Its a pretty good bet that the transmission will need some work. At about 35k miles, mine needed to be overhauled while on a road trip out of state. Ignition coils were recalled and I would recommend just getting all 8 original coils replaced, BEFORE they go out, which eventually they will. Overall, I've enjoyed owning this Aviator but now that it's well past the Lincoln warranty and extended warranty expiration, it's time to let this Aviator get some rest before it puts me in the poorhouse.

Best Features

Very smooth ride, v8 engine, climate control seats, instrument layout and illumination

Worst Features

Reliable transmission, more 2nd row legroom, more durable upper lift gate panel (had it replaced 3 times due to the mysterious crack that all Aviator and Explorer owners are familiar with)
