    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    Good plan. But wouldn't it be simpler to have a tone/alert activated when the driver's door is opened while the car is running?

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    Unless it has been addressed, what I don't understand is there is no alert if you open the driver's door with the engine running. There was an instance where the person didn't realize the engine was running when he exited the vehicle and he died from carbon monoxide poisoning later. I mean the tone will activate if the car is left in 'ignition on', so it should only be a simple software fix. His keyless car killed him while he slept. New legislation could save others
  3. This is the area where Lincoln can make some serious headway. Having dealers who are pleasant to work with and treat you like an adult.. I hate it when the rep says, "I have to go with you." Then tells you where you need to drive. Walked out of two Ford dealerships with that kind of treatment. I'm hoping in around 2022 or so, I'll be looking at the Lincolns again. Have to keep my current Volvo S60 for several years. As long as it behaves.
  4. I felt they made more money on the used, since there isn't a C/R report to tell you what they paid etc.

    Continental Delivery Delayed

    Nice wheels, OK the whole car is beyond cool. Here's to many enjoyable, carefree miles and few issues with your new ride.
  6. I too was more impressed with the strap. To if the had three or more log chains (if they could do the job), would have made it more dramatic. I wonder if they experimented on how fast to pull a d when to stop since it appeared they were near the end of track.

    New Escape

    With the two picts, I reminds me of the cartoons watching as a kid with the car smiling for some reason. The bottom one looks like a caricature.

    Oldie but a Goodie!

    Planning to do much to it? For example, rims and tires etc.
  9. Well, one can only ho- Na, forget it.
  10. Wait, you order in August 2017 and took deliver in January 6, 2019? You have the patience of a saint.
  11. I won an Alexa unit last year. Once I powered and set it up, I felt it was only there to "help" me buy more things from Amazon. Turned it off, put it back in the box, never to take it out again.
  12. Worse is even HD radio is not available unless you move up a trim level or two. It's what stopped me from buying the MKX a few years back on the one I was looking over. Plus there's no monthly fees etc. But the owner of the HD technology wants too much for the chips etc.
  13. Also, it's sad to see the Taurus is no longer made, being at the Chicago plant. Three decades, (yes, not contiguous) is pretty impressive.
  14. Actually it's to test the sound system to ensure it can go loud enough to cover up the rattles and squeaks. 😄
