Cons: No cargo cover.
Advice: Just take one out for a test drive one.The Aviator is as near perfect as possible. My wife and I love everything from the way the vehicle sounds on start-up to the way it maneuvers for u-turns, parking, etc. to the impressive horsepower and smooth ride. The seats are extremely comfortable; sight-lines are great; and, the overall appearance makes me look back everytime I walk away from the vehicle. We purchased a white Aviator and added factory chrome wheels. I am not the only one who looks back at the vehicle . . . I frequently see other people doing a turn-around to check it out. My advice is to try it . . . you'll love it! We bought ours the same day we test drove it.
Pros: The appearance of the vehicle and comfort of the ride.
Cons: gas milage
Advice: Go for it!Finally, a mid-size SUV that truly represents the Lincoln name! The Aviator rides like a dream. It's smooth and has power! The interior is gorgeous! Leather combined with the walnut and satin nickel bring back elegance and style to the SUV. There is nothing I would change about the look (outside & inside) or the ride of this vehicle!!
Pros: Smooth transmission and acceleration
Cons: whining rear end
Advice: Ask why does the rear end make a whining/droning soundI own 2 Lincoln Aviators. One is smooth and quiet, the other has a whining/droning sound coming from the rear end. My brother also has the same problem. Ford/Lincoln/Mercury kept my car for ten days and told me they have no fix for this problem.
Pros: I have covered it.
Cons: A little high in price.
Advice: For those into roomy luxury SUV's, it puts the competition to shame! I highly recommend it!I have to admit. It is a little too high-priced. It is even for a luxury SUV. However, it rides smooth. It has plenty of power. It has enough cargo and seating room. It has a lot of standard and optional features. It has great traction. It puts other luxury SUV's in its class to shame! It includes the Acura MDX. Its 5-speed AOD with lockout is a plus. It is great overall for a luxury SUV. I highly recommend it!
Advice: It will be the best SUV by far you will have ever purchased!I test drove this incredible vehicle and decided on the spot to purchase it. It was extremely comfortable, it also handled bumps and pot holes incredibly well. It also blocks out the sounds outside so well that you feel like your in your own little world with this wonderful edition to the SUV market.
