This particular vehicle is very classy looking, very comfortable, has all the amenities your u would want but I unfortunately bought used. When I bought it drove fine but then started to grind/clunk front driver side tire area when turning left and backing up. My partner then realized after going under the car that it did not have a front Drive line. A month later I. Driving and come to a California stop and when I stepped on the gas there was a loud noise from under the car and then car would not move just made a loud ringing noise when shifting the gears but will not actually engage. Very sad because that outer vehicle is really nice. I still don't know what's wrong with it.

Its loaded electric seats windows heated rear window mirrors and seats, 6 airbags plus more comfort in front to rear to 3rd seat in rear. The all wheel drive automatically uses 4 wheel drive when needed due to road conditions. Anti lock disc brakes and onto center lets you know when oil needs changed, vehicle service and any other thing you need to keep your vehicle safe.

We love our 2003 Lincoln aviator. We bought it used, with only one previous owner. Not many mechanical problems, just common repairs from wear and tear. Rides very nice for long road trips, great for weekly shopping trips and amazing in the snow. Glad we found this great vehicle, it is a keeper.
