My Lincoln Aviator has been a very comfortable smooth running car.

My200: Lincoln Aviator has been a pretty decent car. Overall it has been dependable. I have had to replace the air conditioner about 2 years ago. Three out of the four power windows no longer work which is a major nuisance. I cannot afford to have them repaired as it would involve replacing the whole mechanism inside the door. It is mostly due to the high labor costs. The parts themselves are not too terribly expensive. Also the back lift gate has a crack in it which ford/Lincoln refuse to cover under the warranty. I feel it should be covered as I have seen many Ford and Lincoln SUVs with the same crack. I feel it is a manufacturer's defect. I wish someone would start a class action lawsuit and make them fix it under warranty. Other than those things mentioned I like the vehicle. I am undecided if I would purchase another Ford or Lincoln product.

My Lincoln aviator has been a comfortable reliable car. Even though it is an older model I have enjoyed it very much. It is easy to drive and luxurious for the most part. I have had to replace the air conditioner. Only three out of the four automatic windows work but it is too expensive for me to repair. The rear hatchback panel has a crack in it. I have noticed many fords and Lincolns have this crack so I think it is a manufacturers defect. If I were able to purchase a new car, I do not think I would purchase another ford/Lincoln product.

The Lincoln aviator is a large and spacious car. It comes with so many features but the gas runs out very fast. If the gas lasted longer it would be the perfect vehicle. The sunroof is just one of my favorite features on the 2005 Lincoln aviator. If you have a large family and lots of extra spending money for gas then the Lincoln aviator is the right vehicle for you.
