Review of the 2004 Lincoln Aviator

  • A surprisingly enjoyable luxury sport-ute that takes all that's right about the Navigator and applies it to a smaller, more manageable package.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class-leading power from the standard V8, excellent handling dynamics for an SUV, stylish and feature laden interior that's doesn't sacrifice utility.

  • Cons

    Interior lacks the rock solid build quality of equivalently priced luxury SUVs, engine noise intrusive at high rpm.

  • What's New for 2004

    Lincoln changes the name of the Aviator's high-line trim level from Premium to Ultimate. More substantive improvements include the addition of Roll Stability Control to the optional AdvanceTrac stability system to ward off rollover incidents during panic maneuvers. The previously optional tire-pressure monitoring system is now standard. Additionally, dealer-installed Sirius Satellite Radio is available on Ultimate and Luxury models equipped with the optional Audiophile stereo.

I love the aviator!!!

Vehicle: 2004 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

I bought the 2004 Aviator brand new, almost 9 years ago. It has been the most reliable of any car I've ever had (and I've had many). It feels luxurious on the inside, even after all of this time. Lincoln got the fit/finish on this one right. It has been such a gem to own. I will drive it until it dies. I really wish Lincoln still made them. I would buy another after this one is done. That's how much I love it. I've owned many other SUV's and never had one this dreamy and reliable. Can't say enough good stuff about it.

I hate this vehicle

Vehicle: 2004 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

Purchased this vehicle used about a year and a half ago. Never really liked it but it was in our price range and had all the amenitied that we required. We owned a Chevy Tahoe prior to this but it did not have a 3rd row seat which is what we needed. Here are the things that I dispise about this car. 1. Even though we have owned this vehicle for over a year still can't get used to the window controls in the center console and the seat controls on the door 2. Even though we've owned this vehicle for over a year still haven't gotten used the fact that is doesn't automatically unlock all the doors when you turn it off, I curse this vehicle everyday for this very reason!!!!!!!!!!!

We purchased this beautiful SUV because of it's mid size and appeal. It was fine until it hit 75K miles, the engine froze up, & had to be replaced. FORD was not willing to talk to us, and very rude, the AC hardly blows cool air, the radiator cracked, it is constantly in and out of the repair shop. FORD has no interest in customer service, never will we buy another FORD product.

Vehicle: 2004 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

When i first saw this vehicle i liked it right off the bat. The amazing exterior design of this SUV caught my eye in an instant. I drive this car every day and it never fails to impress me. The 302 horsepower really gives you power and makes you feel like you are driving a sports car. With this SUV you get the best of both worlds. You get the features of a luxury SUV and the features of a sports car with its amazing handling. Very good buy. I definitely recommend it.




Unhappy with 2004 aviator

Vehicle: 2004 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

I've had the car for almost 6 yrs. This is the 3rd time that the applique on the back of car has cracked. Also, my extended warranty just expired. Now car is at dealer with oil leak and thermostat problem. In the past had to have transmission repaired, the driving gear fixed. Air conditioner problems. Not happy right now. Third row is useless. Small space. Also when third row up, now trunk space. Have 3 kids so it's a problem, because not roomy.
