    2020 Lincoln Aviator Debuts

    I work on on a feature for CD6 and put my heart and soul into this beast. Aviator is my favorite vehicle lincoln has ever launched and I'm hoping others love it as well

    When vehicles powered by alternative powerplants are superior to current vehicles, people will happily buy them. Henry Ford I didn't push for a ban on horse-drawn wagons to get people to buy Model Ts.

    Full size Bronco mule?

    I believe this may be the case. I heard back from my closest guy late last night and he was just as surprised as we were. However, it appears this has gone from blue sky to steel incredibly fast. More interestingly... they are apparently comfortable investing heavily into the Bronco brand as a top-to-bottom competitor, not alternative, to Jeep. With FCA's current situation they want to be ready to pounce with any sign of trouble. Compact to Full-size with offroad chops in every model. They're investing in this "just as much as they are in Lincoln" as a "pillar of our company." If you weren't already, it's time to get excited.

    Ordered: 2020 Aviator

    Well, I put a deposit down today for the new Aviator, Black Label Flight Theme in Flight Blue. The salesman told me they’re hoping to be in around the June timeframe. Needless to say, I’m excited!

    Forget any concerns you have of it looking bland. I think it looks like nothing else on the road today (not even a wrangler). It's gonna be badass. You're going to love it, both enthusiast and casual customer.

    They never refer to the Audi Q3 as "Tiguan-based". It's a total double standard and it gets very tiring.

    Well at least they haven't cut corners on the new Corvette, otherwise you'd see all sorts of problems from electrical to warped frames and.........

    2022 Compact Pickup Details

    I refuse to believe any new trucks from Ford unless I see a giant powerpoint of a desert scene with only a vehicle name displayed on a giant screen at an auto show 3 years out. 😉

    Charges for test drive damage

    Finally resolved. No charge for the radiator work. I went in this morning, asked for the general manager, got his assistant to whom I described the situation. I waited in the showroom and the GM came down after about 5 minutes, said my truck was ready to go and there was no charge for the radiator. He also warned me there are rocks all over the frame and it will happen again. I suppressed the eye roll reflex but will look things over underneath to be sure. The only debris near the engine bay was a thin layer of dirt on the suspension wishbones. There is a frame cross member below the radiator but a rock would have to levitate nearly a foot to reach the fan, which would have kicked it back toward the engine anyway. I paid for the service I ordered, and drove away from Fritts Ford for the final time. There are other places in the area to get service if the need arises on a future visit. FWIW, since I never authorized the radiator work that was already completed, it seems they knew they were on the hook for it. Their various offers were just attempts to get me to OK the work so they could bill me for something that was their responsibility. I understand mistakes happen, but a conscientious business person seeks to proactively make things right for the customer when it does. Instead, Fritts Ford seemed to treat their mistake as an opportunity to make more money. If I was the typical out-of-state traveller in a hurry to get somewhere else, it might have worked. Thank you all for you feedback and support. Mom is stable for now, but her long-term prognosis isn't great. She beat terminal cancer 21 years ago but her body took a beating in the process. I've learned to not count her out, however. She's a feisty Irish/Sicilian fire cracker.

    Maybe the frame couldn't handle the stress of putting gas in the gas tank.

    After a little over a month of ownership, I really can't find any major faults with the truck. It really is the perfect size and it very well built (especially for being one of the first built!)

    Well, in 1984 IBM had 70% of the typewriter market...great dominance, but a bigger slice of a shrinking market doesn't do much for profits.

    If it wasn’t for Ford JLR would have gone bankrupt.

    Bronco news?

    Aside from the hybrid news Assimilator dropped before vanishing most of this I've been telling you guys for months, but no, don't listen to me!

    I just saw an article on Facebook from car and driver and what irritates me is the top sentence is Lincoln tries again with a Ford Explorer based suv. I don’t see headlines about Lexus being a Toyota based suv or Cadillac being a Chevrolet based suv, or even Audi being a VW based suv. This is the crap that causes good products to be labeled as bad.
