Review of the 2005 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

    Excellent performance from the standard V8, sharp 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 2005

    The AdvanceTrac stability control system is now standard and includes a new Roll Stability Control feature. The model lineup has been pared down to one well-equipped trim with separate option packages for those who want additional luxury features. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels are now standard, and there is a new chrome grille surround and slots.

Who don't love my aviator

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

I love love love my Aviator! It's the 2005, when I bought it in 2005 I knew the gas mileage was crap, but found the truck solid and full of power. I had the Grand Cherokee which was great too but the Aviator smoked it as far as performance. I have 75,000 miles on it. I do my oil changes every 3-4000 miles. I put tires on it in 2009 and I just put them on again..I never had them rotated and I failed on checking the pressure so they didn't get the wear they should of. I just got new ball joints as they were shot. That is all I've had to put it in it. It's never been to the shop for anything but oil changes and the ball joint issue. Rear door panal cracked too.




A headache so far

Vehicle: 2005 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

I am financing my 2005 Lincoln Aviator and have had it since August 2008 and I have to say that I am experiencing a major problem with my power windows not working (they are now rolled down), the stereo doesn't work, and my AC lights do not work either. I have checked all the fuses both underneathe the dash on under the hood and all checks good, but still I am unable to close my windows or use my radio. This is a very luxury and beautiful vehicle, but I hate the fact that no one seems to know what has caused this problem. Please help!




Great to drive

Fun to drive & don't take up my whole garage. Most of my driving is turnpike avg 17.5 mpg. Not bad for the Navigator look without the bite at the pump.

This is luxury???

Vehicle: 2005 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

This car has been a lot of trouble. Every time I start to like it again something else breaks. We have had problems with the windows rolling down half the time they don't work; neither does the radio or the keyless entry. We have had the gear shift replaced. The car is very noisy on the road. Seatbelt housing makes a lot of noise and back window squeaks all the time!!! The blower fan on the AC had to be replaced and the heated and AC seats quit working. The panel on the rear window cracked too. For the most part I would like to run this car into a wall most of the time.




This is the ultimate driving

Vehicle: 2005 Lincoln Aviator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

You may have higher engine noise slightly but you expect that when all its competitors have v6 and you're driving a 300 horsepower v8 that's what you get with power. It is a true shame that this SUV is coming of the market it is a one of a kind SUV




Awesome

AS this being my first SUV purchace and may i say a forced purchace (I am a real sporty performance driven girl myself) As a new mother and needing more room I opted for the aviator for not only its looks inside and out, the roomiiness and luxury sold me ... not only that 3rd row seating.... The V8 still got out of its own way...unlike its suv look alikes ( which by the way had no more room than my A6 Audi in the back) still love it one year later, It is my new livingroom. Clee
