    Headlight and fog light issue

    Yes, that seems to be a lot of condensation. I see a little bit when I was the car, but your pic shows a lot more than I’ve experienced.
  2. I've always ordered the bare wire power cord and wired it into the fuse panel. You can use a voltage tester to see which open fuse ports in the panel are "Switched" depending on ignition. The best bet is to use one of these (link below) Just crimp the positive wire to it, and ground the remaining wire. https://www.amazon.com/Uriveusa-Circuit-Adapter-Holder-Upgraded/dp/B01LFXA5YQ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2KB8YYF6GHS3B&keywords=fuse+adapter+for+car&qid=1578327730&sprefix=fuse+adapter%2Caps%2C131&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFQNEoyQzQ0Wkk0Q1QmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAzODgwODFZVFgyODlJUUdRWjQmZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDMyMDczOTMzTE5aUlNMQUNOMjQmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl

    Aviator Accessories - Floor liners

    I had a Aviator loaner that them. They were pretty nice. They were more rubbery than the plasticy weatherTech ones that I have for my Audi. I’ll probably get them for my Aviator.

    Detroit Free Press Slams the Aviator Again

    As someone who was quoted in the article - they are not taking our concerns seriously enough. My climate issue was a problem the first time i reported it and they shrugged me off. I was back today at the dealership to deal with this a second time -- this time with documented temperature readings (116 degree console). Four men were sitting in the car with digital thermometers today. I was the one pointing out the temp sensors in the headliner that are probably showing (no reading) for the climate system - pushing the HVAC to crank the flow and temps to max all the time. This of course was because of a pinched sunroof drain tube (in production) that caused a leak into the cabin and probably fried the cabin temp sensors. How long was rain flowing into this car in the 3.5 months it sat in lots in Chicago and Detroit before it was delivered? Not sure. But Lincoln as a company needs to step the hell up and snap to the owners who are voicing concerns about the issues with this car. I want to state that there are people with worse problems with this car than I have, but no matter the issue, the most annoying thing is that i got shrugged off with my complaints. I was back today - pissed off and told them If i can do more scientific testing of the issue with no technical understanding of the car - they better exceed my rudimentary tests to figure out the problem.

    Aviator hood will not close

    I did screw down the bump stops and still had to slam down the hood, but got it to close. 👍

    Aviator hood will not close

    There are bump stops. I'll try to screw them down a bit to see it lets the hood drop just enough to close. Thanks for the recommendation....

    Aviator hood will not close

    Yes, Also tried pulling the handle once it's 1/2 latched - it just releases it (figured it might crank it down tight)
  10. Opened my hood to dry underneath the lip and panel gaps after washing it this weekend and the the hood would not close. Literally tried 20 times. Finally got it to close. Drove and parked it and 20 mins later got an app Alarm alert that the hood had been opened. Figured that was another false app alert - turns out the hood popped itself while parked. WTF!?? Still can't close it again....

    Hitch Cover

    My Hitch and adapter are currently attached to the car and Auto Start/Stop does engage. The bumper cover is not on, but i believe that an "adapted" cover with hole for hitch receiver will fit back on the car with hinged plug cover open - not sure about adding a jumper though. I will confirm tonight for you.

    Lincoln Aviator Roof Leak

    I got word the leak was caused by a pinched drain tube. They have unpinched or replaced the tube and put tons of water on the roof. No water ingress is evident anymore. So it was a simple fix.

    Lincoln Aviator - Lease or Buy

    I leased, mainly because it's a first-year model - and my choice seems to be a smart one since i have a major leak in the car that showed itself in the first 600 miles. Still no verdict on what is causing it. I'd much rather have them take more responsibility in the car since they technically own it.
