  1. Just out of curiosity, has anyone recently traded in a vehicle for their Lincoln purchase? If so, how did the value compare with KBB trade-in values? I know there are a ton of variables in this but with supply so low values of used cars have increased substantially.

    VIN Tracking

    Good news from the dealer! It arrived via railcar on Wednesday. However, we're not sure when it will arrive at the dealer for us to take delivery. The order tracking site says 21 July but that's 2 weeks from when it arrived in the city, so I'm guessing sooner.

    VIN Tracking

    Still no luck with the site. I enter all of the info, but constant Lincoln logo refresh. However, the dealer just let me know it's on a railcar heading our way. So good news.

    VIN Tracking

    Thanks. I have the order number and the VIN. Dealer said, "it's built but waiting for the chip." Not sure how accurate that is. I got the link to work a few days ago but now it's just reloading the Lincoln logo. I'll try again later.

    VIN Tracking

    I got nothing when I ordered my vehicle from the dealer. I signed the N999 sheet but that was it. Didn't ask me for my email or any of that stuff.

    VIN Tracking

    Much appreciated. Guess I need a few more posts.
  7. I heard there was a user or there is a website to allow you to track your order. Who or where can I find that? I saw the Ford tracker site but since ours is a Lincoln it didn't work.
  8. I guess I need to ask my dealer what we actually ordered. Paperwork was signed on March 10th. I got a screenshot showing the vehicle has a VIN (shows 2021) back in May but if the dates align, then we should be getting a 2022, right?
  9. My wife and I ordered an Aviator Grand Touring back in March. It's loaded save for the suspension and towing package. MSRP is $82,000. Now the Senate finance committee has proposed an update to the federal EV Tax credit. The $7,500 max rebate based on battery size remains. Two new additions are as follows: 1) +$2500 if assembled in USA (which the Aviator is) 2) +$2500 if assembled in a factory with union representation (unsure if the Chicago plant is) So the Grand Touring could now be eligible for $12,500 federal tax credit. That really makes it a steal. But there's a catch: max MSRP is $80,000 meaning our Aviator would no longer be eligible for the tax credit, at all, if this passes. The luxury package effectively becomes a $16,000 ($12,500 + $3,300) option for us as that's the singular option we could have eliminated to bring us under the $80,000 limit. Talk about a big time bummer. The EV credit was the reason we decided to go ahead and get the Grand Touring. It's a completely different financial consideration if we're not eligible for the tax credit anymore.

    Aviator Pricing

    Oh we definitely did. You also have to factor in the cost of AWD since the Reserves we've looked at are RWD. That also plays into the fuel consumption calculation. The thing you have to watch out for is the tax credit hasn't been calculated in the purchase price; meaning you're still paying interest on that $6,534 until you get your rebate. Which if we buy now, is next year. So ~12 months at whatever the interest rate is. We're very familiar with the tax credit as we have a PHEV now.

    Aviator Pricing

    Hey new here and just got done driving a high end reserve I with a low end grand touring. My wife and I are leaning towards the reserve but we're curious what kind of pricing others are getting on their Aviators. Dealer has this one listed at $65.5k (ocean blue, reserve I, convience package, luxury package, tow package, 22" rims) and sticker is $70,055. Is $4500 the going discount or should I be able to do better? Thanks!
