    Paint Issue -Need Advice- What would you do??

    Picked up the car and they repainted the door but I couldn't really inspect it as en epic thunderstorm was on site at the time but will take a picture tomorrow and upload. Good thing my film guy will reapply the ceramic coat on my door for no charge.

    2020- Gurgling sound only when raining

    I just had this same sound yesterday during a drive to the ice cream shop and it rained out briefly and then gurgling sound from right side in same location.

    Paint Issue -Need Advice- What would you do??

    Ok, I wasn't sure how they would fix it since they said they took pictures of this and sent it to Lincoln. That made me think it wasn't just a paint in body shop fix.
  5. I decided to post this as separate thread. A new item is a paint problem where at the front of the rear passenger door right where it lines up with the front door the paint looked like it was touched up and coated over. At first glance I thought it was my paint protection film partially peeled back when I realized I didn't put paint protection film on the doors. My wife noticed it and since its pristine white and you don't see it right away. My Xpel film guy said this looks like post factory shipping company repair or during q/c they attempted to fix it and repair it. Dealer took pictures and sent to Lincoln. I just don't want problems with that paint peeling back or the clear coat wearing off because it was done somewhat poorly and I see what looks like bear metal exposed in there (the silver color). See pic below. Should I insist on a new door? What would you do?

    Ok an update to this. Had to go to dealer for the rear seat rattle and replacement of the glove box. The rear seat rattle (passenger side 2nd row) turned out to be a loose bracket which they tightened down. In videoing the noise, so I didn't get the "We cant replicate it", I noticed when the aviator goes over rougher pavement (not just a big pothole) the 2nd row captains chairs exhibit a lot of vibration where the head rest almost looks like a tuning fork when you bang it (not sound but the visible vibration). In my mind those seats are not very vibration isolated. Call me crazy ,but I'm thinking how submarines use larger rubber vibration isolating pieces to prevent machinery noise and vibration from hitting the hall. Yes I get it a $2b sub vs a $87k dollar SUV. I just keep thinking over time if that's what I see on the seat from the outside on the inside in the guts over time I hope it doesn't loosen crap up. Let me know when you go over rougher pavement if you all notice in your rear view mirror the tops of the 2nd row seats visibly vibrating like that. The glovebox leather was bubbled (almost like a pimple) so they replaced it which was nice. No bitching about that from them.

    Door Keypad Question

    Wow, mine works fine and I actually use it a lot since you can't lock it by touching the door handle. I miss my old audi's ability to lock the car by touching the door handle, because with the keypad you have to hit the spot dead on. My wife's minivan has the same feature just touch the door handle and it will lock. You don't have to be so precise like you do with this keypad.

    Good Trunk Organizer

    This one can accordion up if you want as well. Yep the lincoln one seemed a bit pricey for the quality.

    Good Trunk Organizer

    I thought I would share a cool trunk organizer I bought on Amazon. Its well made and doesn't move and I have it sitting on my old trunk liner from my Audit SQ5. So excuse the fact that the trunk liner is short, waiting for my new one to come. You can set it up in multiple configurations. I set it up for 3 and the size handles hook nicely on the Aviator hooks on the left and right side of the trunk. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RQK1J95/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Something to consider we first got the whiplash backing out from garage, hmmm, but I recall we were going super duper slow as it was one of the first few times backing out and I was being careful to see how much clearance and getting used to rearview camera view, etc. Cool scoop hopefully those pics gave you the perspective you want, if not let me know what kind of shot you want.

    I immediately thought of a cell phone rig to do this. A bit involved, but I might I have to do it if the lane keep assist really begins to bother me. I agree on the software but I also see their point as when they test it they see no problem. I can appreciate I'm sure some customers come in with issues that never can be corroborated. I will have to set up a cell phone from behind and I'm hoping the camera will pick up the heads up display to show this. The precision to do this and see the road to show the car is veering off the road is gonna be a PITA so I have to make up mind if I want to do this. I turned the rear assist back on and will see if this happens again because they said they did a self test on that as well. Does anyone have a TSB or something that references a software fix for this so I can show them? As for running boards here are some pics I just took. The Mrs is happy and my daughter is as well. I mentioned the dirty pants scenario which is for someone of my height 6', I will likely step over them getting out and the back of your pants will rub the running board so in the winter you will pick up all the dir and crap thats on running board. Having taken so many uber rides with colleagues in the large suv's, you get out and if you don't use the running board and step down your slacks catch the running board and you end up with dirt on them. Yeah I know before all the jokes, soft management boys I know but this shit happens and you see guys come into meeting with the back of their slacks all shitted up and its funny, everyone is like you ubered in a suv didn't you. Yeah first world problems I know but just sharing the truth. So I will have to get used to step on it getting out even though I don't need it. On a navigator you are up so much higher you instinctively step on it as I found during test driving that. This is lower so its not instinctive to step on it getting out. Getting in yeah you step on it. Can't explain it but you just do.

    Ok, here was my results from the dealer. 1. dealer found no issues with lane assist. Said they took for test drive. Of course on my way home the drift to the left wasn't being corrected consistently even with the green bars showing. When using lane centering it worked. So conclusion I have is it will be a PITA in this to get them to see it so I know not to rely on it. They didn't calibrate my camera because no fault code and no problem with self test. 2. They fixed the ceiling speaker because it was obvious. 3. The loose trim was fixed. 4. Rear hatch now opens with foot. 5. They didn't acknowledge a software fix for the rear brake assist/cross assist or whatever you call it when the sensor thinks a car is coming from either side when reversing and you get jerking braking from a bush on the side of the driveway. I just turned that off. If there is a TSB for this please let me know. 6. Installed running boards and like them. So my sense is the lane assist and the advanced cruise control even when set at the maximum distance in stop and go traffic isn't reliable when at higher speeds and then you come on traffic that is stopped at a red light. Even on way home a couple of times it wasn't going to stop. How do you show them that really because It doesn't fail every time but enough that I will never rely on it solely. A couple of times my wife was like what are you doing, meaning her instinct was kicking when the car wasn't slowing and I had not begun override braking yet. This with the maximum distance set for spacing between cars so the car should begin slowing earlier than if you set it to the minimum distance. I will say Audi and Benz have this wired and it sounds like some of your vehicles work flawlessly as well. Mine doesn't so its gonna be like getting something to rattle when the dealer is driving it. I like the vehicle but am disappointed that these two very important safety features are dangerously quirky for me. I will remove the danger by not relying on them. Yes we are not supposed to rely on them solely, but when I might need them its a bit disconcerting that they may not work at that moment. I may decide to go to a closer dealer as the Black Label dealer is 40 miles away and non black label Lincoln dealer is 10 miles away.
  13. I agree , my driving around with the PHEV in terms of transition between EV and non is flawless, no complaints in that regard.

    After wrap, xpel 70 tint and a ceramic coat. Never had a white car before but I like it so far. NJ tint can be an issue so this stuff cuts all the heat without drawing unwanted attention. NJ is tough, if your license plate has a dealer frame that covers a 1/1000th of an inch of the plate its probable cause to pull you over let alone tint so no reason to draw the federales. Side note go into any police parking lot and look at their personal cars and you could ticket every one of them for having their license plate covered. I've paid a ticket for that and the female officer told me that is why she was pulling me over. I was peeved about that. I digress.

    I will let you all know how the dealer visit goes. I have an appointment for Friday and I'm putting on the running boards as well. My bad on the daytime running lights, my inexperience with American cars. The daytime running lights only come on once you put the car in drive, unlike the german cars which if you turn them on they are on regardless of whether in park or not. I did not know that. Seems strange to me, but I guess from one point of view that is logical.
