    2021 Lincoln Aviator Production Information

    Adaptive steering is my most used "didn't know I need it" option. After long days at the hospital, it keeps me centered on the drive home. On nights I have the Audi, I realize how much that system does for me. It isn't perfect, but it sure does work well for me.

    Identifying Build Issues on the Lot?

    Hmmm, don't tell that to my car, He thinks he is the boss over the two Germans. Oh wait he is, I have not had any problems, no bad paint, no gaps, and thinking about ditching the Q5 and getting him a sister. I've counted 51 horror stories between here and the 2020 Aviator FB page. That is actually a pretty low number. The Aviator was a master piece for Lincoln and some bean counters pressed it and lost. Most of the really big issues I've seen have nothing to do with installers, there were a few pinched drain lines and such at the beginning. Ford admitted to issues and said they totally blew the roll out. You don't hire thousands of new workers and think they will be skilled experts after watching some training films and standing beside an experienced installer.(unless you live in a glass house)

    Aviator Black Label GT Feedback so far

    I guess I should feel very fortunate to get a good one. Sorry to hear about your issues. How many miles were on it when you picked it up? I had about 52, I'll give them the benefit of using those to get everything right.
  5. I would never have believed I could go 1 month on a tank of gas, let alone two plus. I think the hybrid reviewers have a bad tester. I've taken people on rides to show them the transitions between modes. They are totally blown away. Note: If you mash the peddle to the floor there is an obvious jerk when you go from either single mode to hybrid. I'm a fairly aggressive driver and am used to torque from my Mustang. Maybe the reviewer drives a Prius as a daily driver😁 I'm at 3240 miles right now, here is a screen shot of my lifetime MPG
  6. So far, it has been better than anticipated, I love every bit of it. I have a quip, but it is merely that, not a complaint. When towing an empty trailer you can really hear it back there bouncing around. I think they did not focus on the road noise from the back. The good news is it does tow very well, and towed effortlessly pulling 5K lbs. So far my all electric range has increased by about 3 miles. I have 19.6 miles to work, and usually have 6 miles of range left before a quick top off (2 hrs). I have two areas I kick it hard to go from 25 to 80 on short freeway on ramps. The engine runs about 2 minutes total. Since February, I'm averaging 85 MPG, thanks to COVID I haven't done any recent trips out of state. I am getting better with the brakes, which helps with the electric range. I average 85 to 120 MPG on normal traffic work days. If I drive exactly the speed limit on the freeway, I get about 140MPG lol. I've been really good, still using my last fill up in March with 190 DTE.

    Decision Time, Aviator or not?

    I doubt they will be readily available at the end of summer, but are you sure school is going to reopen? With the wave of protesters doing their thing, we will either have a large COVID outbreak or a CDC with egg on their face.

    are new orders being accepted now

    2021 order banks open June 11. Other than color options, the only thing a MY20 will get you is a quicker devaluation. If you plan on holding it for 7 or more years, get a 20MY, if not I'd hold out for the 2021s around the corner. JMO

    SIRIUS/XM Trial Subscription Change

    LOL, I wish they wouldn't install this anymore, like the mullet, XM radio is a thing of the past. They replay the same content over and over. It would be nice if they just had a really good app support firmware. I use the Lincoln plus Alexa app and it is far better for me than XM.

    2020 Aviator Check Engine Light

    Yes. It came on three times for me when the charger was hooked up longer than 12 hours. Probably a software glitch. It always went away. I snap a pic and will let the dealer look at it. Take a pic and save it, so the dealer doesn’t give you the didn’t happen shrug.

    First Quarter Update Aviator GT

    If you have a portrait mode, use that in bright light standing about 10 feet away, then crop it to make it look like a close up.

    First Quarter Update Aviator GT

    You are doing pretty good, how hilly is your area. I'm pretty much flat with a few hills. Mine continues to get better as I did not use the electric for the first two weeks while I was getting the engine broke in. I wanted 500 gas miles before I took it on vacation. This virus ended that idea.

    First Quarter Update Aviator GT

    Mileage on all electric varies just like gas. Under 40 around mostly flat town, with minimum red lights ( you use brake coach to teach how to only use regen coming up to a light) I get 26-28 Miles. On the freeway driving 80 or so, I get 18 and my normal mix to work is 19-23. It really depends on how you drive. It takes a tad over 4 hours on level 2 and about 10 hours on 110 (Level varies by what side of the garage I get) I'm planning on installing a Level 2 charger for two in the middle when the wife upgrades to the Mach E.
