    2020 Aviator

    Thanks. I didn’t even bother having them re-do the PDI. This is my fifth Lincoln purchase from this dealer in six years and I can honestly say their PDI people are completely out to lunch. extremely laid back and great to deal with but not great at the attention to detail. It’s a rural dealership that just doesn’t get the Lincoln customer I think. I would still recommend the Aviator hands down. Fully loaded it’s a fantastic bargain compared to its rivals in the luxury space.

    Yes, I did miss the sticky about the deadline. No worries though and I sure do appreciate your help. It was a LONG six months and three days! I love the vehicle but was less than impressed with the poor PDI on mine. A number of small scratches/marks on the exterior paint and plastic cladding. Drivers door card and sill marked and scratched, presumably due to the work boot-wearing transportation people. And what the heck is with all the prints/smudges on the headliner? WHO is touching it? Every Lincoln (all special orders) I’ve had has required some cleaning of the light headliner. All that said, the vehicle itself is a great upgrade from the MKX I had previously, especially since it has a distinct rear drive feel that I love.

    Help on MIA Aviator

    Similar situation here. My original ETA was October 13. Never shipped until recently. New ETA January 5. That’s 6 months and 1 week but like you I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Mr. Cyber, I believe there has been some movement on 5LM5J7XC5LGL12251 . Can you confirm?

    Help on MIA Aviator

    I haven’t got anything constructive to offer but to say I feel your pain. I ordered mine on June 28 and it was built September 20. Until earlier this week the status showed Origin Received; In Production, and now it has changed from Released; Awaiting Shipment to Received; Awaiting Shipment. Lincoln told me the looooong delay was due to the rear seat recall, but the recall still in outstanding according to the Lincoln website. Clearly a lie. All of this to say, try to manage your frustration as best you can. And also realize that your dealer is likely just as frustrated as you are. I’m just trying to stay positive that mine will be worth the wait quality-wise!!

    I believe my dealer called them shortly after the ETA date passed. The status usually changes to Released; Awaiting shipment, but mine never did. The other thing that makes me suspicious about the ‘released from flat rock’ update I was given is that the seat recall is still shown as incomplete. The seat recall is the excuse the original Lincoln client rep assigned to my file used for the delay - she told me they were going to send my Aviator “back through the factory”.

    I don’t believe so, but I’m not sure what’s worse.... destroyed by derailment or sent to the Michigan plant to be ‘re-worked’.

    Thanks. And yes, I found it odd that the dealer told me (freely) that it was in Michigan but I think all the vehicles would have their status change if they were ‘sent offsite’. Like waaaay off-site. Anyway, it is what it is...

    Dealer said his factory 'contact' told him that the vehicle was released Sunday from the Flat Rock Plant, but I'm skeptical it was a stall tactic to persuade me not to re-order. Any updates on the system? 5LM5J7XC5LGL12251

    Aviator GT Order

    I hope you all have a better experience than me. Fully loaded Reserve II: Ordered 6/28 blend 9/17 built 9/20 eta 10/13 status went to ‘Origin Received; In Production’ around build date and hasn’t changed since. I doubt delivery will occur in CY2019. Calling dealership Monday to finalize re-order. This has been going on so long I’ve been through two Lincoln Client reps!

    2020 Aviator Reserve I

    Convoy means truck I believe. Vehi-ship is the carrier and I don’t believe you’ll see any updates until it is delivered, unlike the ones shipped by rail.

    Wasting all of our time by asking for an update, but nonetheless.... 5LM5J7XC5LGL12251. Is it still holding down the concrete on RAMP 6?
  15. Professor1234

    Quality issues are very concerning

    Indeed. Placed my order on 6/28 for my 5th Lincoln since 2013 and my third Special Order. Vehicle was built 9/20 but has since been held on Ramp 6. Next Tuesday will be 60 days since build and I’m told there are thousands ahead of mine waiting to be released. Not really sure what I should do.
