2004 Lincoln Navigator - Ultimate (220A) 4x4
Pros: Rack and Pinion Steering
Cons: Engine power - (Not up to par with the Escalade)
Advice: Assure that your Dealer service is on par with other vehicles within this segmentSignificant upgrades to both ride and handling versus the previous model (1998-2002). Excellent Interior. Tasteful exterior styling. Initial quality was lacking for a vehicle of this price range/market segment.
2004 Lincoln Aviator - Luxury (300A) AWD
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.
2002 Lincoln Blackwood - Base
Pros: THE OVERALL FAVORITE FEATURE IS THE AC/HEATED SEATS.
Cons: THE SOUND SYSTEM
Advice: GOOD LUCK ON FINDING ONE WITHOUT AND ELECTRICAL PROBLEMSGREAT SMOOTH RIDE ,I JUST WISH THE GAS MILEAGE WAS BETTER. THE APPEARANCE JUST TURNS HEADS ALL OVER TOWN.
2003 Lincoln Town Car - Cartier (300A)
Pros: Eight way adjustable seats, both driver and passenger.
Cons: No daylight running lights.
Advice: Buy a Towncar now!The more I drive my Lincoln Cartier Towncar the more I enjoy it. I just about have all the amenities a person could desire. The smooth ride and lack of extraneous noise, along with a excellent 6 CD, tape, stereo sound system, makes travel something to look forward too. The centralized steering wheel controls are not only convenient, but also a safety factor. The fact Lincoln met government safety requirements and has radar/ultra-sound protection when backing the vehicle, gives one that extra feeling of confidence. Both my wife and I love the multiple seat setting ability, the push button trunk lid, extra valet key and plush seating space. Our Lincoln seems built solid, looks gorgeous and shouts 'quality'.
2003 Lincoln LS - V8 Premium Sport (222A)
Pros: The power from the V8 engine
Cons: I liked every thing on the car
Advice: Buy a New 2003 they have 3/36 oil changes and fluid replacementThis is one of the best lincolns I have ever owned, I've owned a 93 Mark 8 and a 98 Mark 8 and Lincoln has learned from those vehicles. They truly have put together an automobile that can compete with the Japanese and European sedans.
2003 Lincoln Aviator - Premium (110A) 4x2
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!!
2002 Lincoln LS - V8 Auto Sport (220A)
Pros: The V8 performance & styling
Cons: high octane gas required
Advice: lease one for three years then turn it back after the leaseWhen I purchased my LS I had been working at a Lincoln dealer at the time as a sales manager. Never thought I would buy a ford product but did, only because of the great lease program at the time, as far as styling and performance the LS is great, but as far as durability it is terrible, I was the used car manager and saw two year old LS and was not impressed at all, and even the ones that came in for service, a mechanic asked me why did you buy one, last time I buy a ford product.
