    Ordering a Nautilus

    Hi jniffen. Our vehicles do have a break-in period. I am not sure whether the current Owners Manuals state 500 or 1,000 miles. However, I would not have any issues taking a new vehicle on a long trip, as long as the break-in period restrictions are followed. As akirby stated, try to vary rpm/speed on long highway trips. During that break-in period: Do not drive at high speeds. I would recommend not driving over 70-75 mph (yes, over that is considered high speed) And as akirby stated, do not drive for long periods of time at the same speed. A good rule of thumb is to vary driving speed by at least 10 mph every 10 minutes during highway driving. No prolonged periods of steady speed driving. And do not use it to tow for the first 1,000 miles. I would also add...Even if not towing, I would not load down the vehicle with an abnormally heavy load...i.e. 5 passengers plus loads of luggage, rooftop cargo etc. However, a normal trip of you and say 2-3 passengers and luggage should be no problem, if you follow the rest of the break-in requirements. Hope, this information helps, have a nice trip and good luck.
  2. Hi P1. It certainly does look very nice. Good luck. 🍻

    Ordering a super duty with xplan

    Hi gang. Not sure if this helps in the discussion or not, but the information can certainly help others in the future: When an order is placed, the Dealer can and should provide a copy of the VOC (Vehicle Order Confirmation) to the customer. On that VOC, the Dealer has the ability to print (or delete) the price boxes for the AXZD-Plan pricing. That VOC can be provided immediately upon placement of the order. In fact, the Dealer can provide a preliminary copy of the VOC to the customer, with the correct plan pricing, before they even place the order. Unfortunately, many Dealerships are either ignorant of this fact, or they feign ignorance in order to play pricing games later. Good luck.
  4. Hi Legacy. It is understandable to look for online help. However, since it is a brand new vehicle with a 4 year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Warranty, the best course of action would be to make a service appointment with your Lincoln Dealership, and not to try any self-help or DIY fixes you may find online. No "Master Resets" or battery disconnections etc. etc. The reason for this is simple: If something is not working properly, there is usually a deeper cause which needs addressing. Unfortunately, many/most DIY fixes (i.e. system resets, battery disconnects etc.) will only temporarily "cure" the problem (if at all). Often just long enough for the warranty to expire. Then the vehicle owner will need to pay out of pocket for it to be repaired correctly. Also, if you will need a Lincoln complementary loaner, let them know when you call, so they will reserve one for your scheduled appointment date. Also, in the future you may want to post your questions in the Lincoln Navigator sub-forum, located further down the page, instead of here in the general "Lincoln Motor Company" sub-forum. In that way, you will get more attention from Navigator owners. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    2022 Navigator - Radio Favorites

    Hi zyaaaa. Things happen, and although not anywhere near a widespread problem, a small number of owners do report this issue occurring. It can usually be corrected with a simple module reprogramming or replacement if necessary. Call the Service Department at your Lincoln Dealership explain the situation and make a service appointment. If you will need a complementary loaner, let them know when you call. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    2023 Navigator Order Timeframe Thread

    Hi mkalbarc. Congratulations! I will take a guess that they are the cameras for the 360° view display. I am sure others will jump in if I am mistaken. Also, your new Navigator is loaded with all sorts of great features. So I would also recommend you take a quick look through the Owners Manual and Quick Reference Guide, to get acquainted with your new vehicle. Otherwise you may miss quite a lot of great stuff. 🤗 EDIT- Oooops...BL and I were typing our replies at the same time...lol Best of luck with your new Navigator!

    Can you reset defaults on touchscreen

    Hi UD. Yes, I understood what you were saying. But unfortunately, that is the way they work. If they are left on when the vehicle is turned off, they will be on when the vehicle is started again. However, they do have a ~20 minute timer and will turn off (for safety reasons). Concerning the recirculation feature: It will not stay on because it is programmed not to for various safety reasons. For example...To ensure it is not left on too long, which would lead to condensation on the windshield of the vehicle, due to the air becoming too humid. Also to ensure fresh air is eventually brought into the vehicle, for occupant safety. Therefore, recirculation is an as needed selection, and not left on by default, or as last selected etc. In fact, even when recirculation is chosen, it will sometimes turn itself off, according to the interior humidity readings the sensors report. We do understand what you wish the vehicle settings were capable of, but it is not possible with the factory programming and settings. Hope that makes my reply more understandable. Good luck.

    Can you reset defaults on touchscreen

    Hi UD. What akirby stated. The heated seats do not come on by default. Only if the Climate Control option (in the Vehicle Settings) is set to "AUTO", or you left them on when you last turned off the vehicle. If yours come on in other circumstances, there is an issue. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Phone as a key issue

    Hi HJ. I realize you know the solution, but for others: Move the keyfob to a spot further away from the vehicle. Or place it in metallic bag to keep the transponder signal from reaching the vehicle. Or perhaps park a few feet further from the garage door, if you have a longer driveway/if possible? Keep us updated and good luck.
  10. Wishing everyone a healthy, safe, prosperous and Happy New Year! Good luck.

    Clear Coat Peeling

    Hi Mickel. Have you contacted Lincoln Concierge to file a formal report? If you have not, I would recommend you do that. Well, once once you have verified that the affected areas were not repainted. If it has been repainted in those ares, then Lincoln is not responsible. Again, unless the work was performed by a Lincoln certified shop. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Clear Coat Peeling

    Hi Mickel and welcome to the Blue Oval Forums. As akirby stated, this not a "common issue". Does it happen? Yes, as with all makes and models of vehicles. But not a common issue. I would take akirby's advice and stop by a body shop to ask them for their professional opinion as to whether the vehicle was damaged and repainted in that area. While I can't vouch for either party, the Service Manager is the professional. Drop-off/Pick-up drivers are generally retired individuals working on the side, or low person on the totem pole in the Service Department. That does not mean I am backing the Service Manager 100%, just stating that stopping by a body shop you trust, speaking to the manager or owner and having them look at your vehicle (not a desk person who only checks cars in) may be a good idea. If that area of the vehicle was repainted, the clearcoat peeling issue would generally not be covered. Unless the work was performed by a Lincoln Certified Body Shop. Keep us updated and good luck.

    How To Disable Hill Descent Control

    Hi j2. Yes, that was why I stated, "It mentions Hybrid models, but the procedure may be the same for non-hybrids. If not exactly the same, my guess is it would likely be in the Settings menu > Drivers Assistance of non-hybrids." My hopes are, for the sake of the OP, that the procedure to enable/disable may be similar. At least it would make sense for the enable/disable procedure to be similar. Either way, it was explained on pages 212 of the Owners Manual, and vicinity. Good luck.

    How To Disable Hill Descent Control

    Hi bdegrand. From the PDF version of the 2022 Escape Owners Manual, page 212: "SWITCHING GRADE ASSIST ON AND OFF 1. Press Settings on the touchscreen. 2. Select Driver Assistance Settings. 3. Select Grade Assist. The grade assist lamp appears in the instrument cluster. Your vehicle determines the amount of engine motoring and high-voltage battery charging. You could notice the engine speed increasing and decreasing to help maintain your vehicle speed when descending a slope." It mentions Hybrid models, but the procedure may be the same for non-hybrids. If not exactly the same, my guess is it would likely be in the Settings menu > Drivers Assistance of non-hybrids. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  15. Hi Thisguy. I will answer what I can off the top of my head: 2. The "regular suspension" does not have the same "adaptive suspension" (minus air suspension). 3. No. Most Black Label Perks only belong to the original buyer. No free car washes, yearly detail, etc. etc., unless the Dealer offers it on their own. Especially if it is not a Black Label certified Dealer. 4. Yes, just as with any used vehicle buyer, you will get the balance of the regular Lincoln 4 year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Warranty and 6 year/70,000 mile Powertrain Warranty. Anything additional would be between you and the Dealer, and need to be specified in the purchase contract. 6. Which is better is one of those "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" questions. Both headlight systems are excellent 8. Yes, all current Aviator models are equipped with SYNC 3 (which is actually pretty good). And yes, the SYNC 3 hardware and software can not/will not handle or be upgraded to SYNC 4. Essentially, a used Black Label carries no special cachet, unless you like the looks of the interior and exterior differences which are not available on non-Black Label Aviators (nicer Black Label leather interiors, Black Label wheels etc.). So don't get tricked into paying too much more for a used Black Label. Also, just to make it clear...None of he above is a shot at Black Label vehicles or the Black Label Aviator. I happen to like them. It is simply that Lincoln states the Black Label perks do not transfer to a second buyer, unless it is specified in the purchase contract. Perhaps they will do so for a Lemon Law buyback? That you will need to work out with the Dealer and Lincoln. Just be sure to get it in writing. I am sure others will jump in with more advice and opinions. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
