Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Performance: quick/fast pick up. Handles like a sports car, responsive steering, tight turning radius..no 'top heavy' feeling of a sense of an eminent roll-over...as felt in many/most SUV's. Very quiet, NO road noise, comfortable seating...makes for easy enjoyable drive. My previous car-a Lincoln 5.0L v8, 17mpg town, 25 hwy. This Aviator has same 'improved' engine. Only Disappointment: even using Lucas Oil, premium+octane booster. STILL: 11.4 mpg..town, hwy, uphill, or downhill consistently!
second best vehicle ever
Cons: mileagemileage could be a little better
