    2020 Aviator Reserve I

    Other feedback and the presence of the Ramp code seems to indicate that it was transferred to a train and it’s status was “In Transit, Passing Rail Yard” then “In Transit, Received at Junction”, but no location info is known. So, I was hoping this locator could tell me what train company and car ID? I could then possibly track the progress via the train tracking system. Please provide for 5LM5J7WC9LGL21021, if possible. Thanks!!

    Is there any way you can tell me if this has been put on a commercial train and, if so, what company and car ID? I’d like to track the progress if at all possible. 5LM5J7WC9LGL21021

    Sorry to ask again, but are you able to identify on what date it was built? That would be very helpful in telling how long it’s taking. Thanks if you can! 5LM5J7WC9LGL21021

  6. I too am surprised that such items weren’t noticed during the purchase review of the vehicle, but I highly value the post because mine is just now being built and I’m trying to gauge the potential improvement in quality since earlier builds. So far, I’ve seen little to no info on any built with VINs later than the 8000 range. Thanks for the info.
  7. Dealer says it’s been built and shipping soon but couldn’t tell me build date. Any info you can provide would be very appreciated. 5LM5J7WC9LGL21021
  8. For those of us trying to determine the progress in addressing these production issues, could you tell us what model you have and the build date, if you know it?

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    Sure there still would be. It would allow for those wanting it to save fuel. OEM could even charge for it, if desired...and for those not wanting it, the ability to either not have it or, at least to default it off, would be a competitive advantage for the OEM . Those that want it, use it (or buy it, if that’s the OEM approach) and those that don’t want it, don’t have it forced on them (or have to look for a viable workaround...OR chose a competitor’s vehicle without it). WIN, WIN for consumers and OEM!

    2020 Aviator Start Stop :-(

    I agree that it can be needed in some cases, but who is that fast at disabling it when truly needed or whom “knows” that they will definitely need it disabled (except when they just plain don’t like it). My point is an argument as to why all such features should be tested as worst case REGARDLESS of whether it can be left off at restart. I definitely was NOT recommending that it be forced on people as always on. In fact, that’s what they are “basically” doing now. My suggestion would allow the OEM to decide whether to provide a permanent off state since it would have zero impact to the EPA rating. And the same for any other such “features”.

    Tech Warranty

    Thanks for the feedback, bbf2530! (I understand what you’re saying akirby, but I don’t listen to the insurance salesmen either. To me , an extended warranty is basically some “ease of mind” pre-paid repairs, whether you need them or not. But they’re truly worthless if they never even pay hardly anything due to the deductible and the sales people love a high deductible so they can more easily use the approach which I mentioned. So, if I buy one, I don’t give them ANY wiggle room and this has worked well for me in the past. With today’s complexity vs quality, a longer period with a zero deductible will almost certainly pay off before it expires...and if not, I’m still happy because it means I had a great vehicle.)

    Tech Warranty

    Does Ford have zero-deductible ESPs? (I’ve had dealers that would fix things at a cost just over the deductible and say other issues were fine, so they could hit me with the deductible again when I returned to fix the other issues.)

    Better yet, the EPA should test ALL vehicles with ANY such mileage affecting capabilities in their worst case state (in this case, with start/stop set to off) regardless if it can be defaulted. Then there would be more consistent ratings and the incentive for the OEM is to either force capabilities like this on the consumer or provide the off feature and take the rating hit. (I’d call this better “truth in advertising”)
