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.

Great, ----- but,

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

Looks wonderful, better than my last two Navigators which I loved. Drives great, much better than my last two Naavigators. Build quality???? So far, a dissappointment. My dealer has been wonderful in quality and timely warranty repair, but too much has needed repair. 5,000 miles and needed: new differential, new radio, 3 trim pieces, and the front brake discs were warped, and drivers seat has a little slop in the track. All is well now, but - - - Not a great start.




Finally a great suv

One year review

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

Ride quality very good, engine is strong and reliable, and has never failed to start. Polymer finish on paint holds up well. Average gas mileage is 19 mpg in combined city/highway commute in Houston, better than EPA estimate. Had trouble with rear differential and one window motor, but replaced by dealer with high quality service. Front passenger space is somewhat limited, could be a uncomfortable for large or obese people. Stereo is excellent Still not up to real quality standards. Interior fit not good in places, only one automatic window, exterior mirrors need constant adjustment, some wind noise, especially in crosswinds. Seats could fold flatter. No luggage cover




I love it

Drove an Explorer for years, looked at Pilot, Highlander, and Explorer to replace. Drove an Aviator on a whim, the family loved it! Fun to drive, pulled a trailer with no effort, ride is great, there was no comparison to other vehicles test driven. Handling is solid, seats very comfortable, even during several hour uninterrupted stretches of driving. Everyone I have had as a passenger has really liked the ride and internal comfort. Buying experience was the best I had ever experienced!

Excellent value

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

After driving Volvo's for the last 20 years due to atrocious domestic build quality and service, I was very pleasantly surprised by the high level of quality in both build and service. My fuel economy, while dismal in the city, actually compares favorably with the 6 cyl Volvo on the highway (19.2 vs. 23 with the Volvo) I have gone from hood badge to tailgate badge, tires to roof rack both inside and out looking for assembly defects and could not find a significant one. It looks nice, it drives nice and I would heartily recommend this vehicle to anyone whose needs require luxury travel with the ability to tow relatively large trailers.
