2005 Lincoln Aviator Luxury AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
I replaced my Lexus with an Aviator 3 years ago. It only had 10K miles on it. Besides general mte. have replaced rear brakes and tires. Rear window panel cracked 2 yrs ago and was replaced under warranty. Has now cracked again (not under warranty). Dealership told me that Lincoln was aware of this problem but was not helping with replacement anymore. Was told yesterday (at 56K miles) that water pump was leaking. My husband likes this vehicle better than I do. But I drive it 95% of this time. I consistently get 17 mpg on a combo of city/highway driving. When my husband drives it the mpg goes down because he has a lead foot and loves "floor it" after a stop.
interior and exterior classy look.
These are things I am not crazy about. This vehicle is not for tall people. Leg room in 2nd row is not good except for children. Wish I had gotten bench seat instead of buckets. Not as comfortable as my Lexus and does not ride as nice. Driver's seat was very stiff until I got it broken in.
