Poor Quality: Cylinder, Transmission and AC Problems
By natefromaz on
2004 Lincoln Aviator Ultimate AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
I bought a brand new Lincoln Aviator in November 2004 and it now has 82K miles. The quality of teh venhicle in general has been bad after he cross 60K miles. In general the engine pings and the check engine light comes and off and when we come to a stop light, the AC starts blowing hot air. The check engine light came steady on at 78K miles and when I took it to the dealer, it was diagnosed that left side cylinder head and transmission needs to be replaced and there is no warranty and I was given an estimation of $5500 for the cylinder head and $3500 for transmission. I called Ford customer care but they said that they cannot help or cover for these costs. Don't buy Ford!!

Improve quality. Ford should cover the Cylinder and transmission replacement beyond the four year warranty. Owners cannot be expected to spend $7500 for Cylinder and Transmission replacement just after 80K miles. That is very poor quality as well as not being customer friendly in not covering the major repair costs.
