    2018 Lincoln Navigator Black Label
  1. This uTube video review mentions he checked that the headphones were ~$50. I found the review very interesting considering all the negative comments I’ve been seeing.
  2. I see the Build & Price tool is now (01-24-2019) available ... seems to me to need a little work, but good start. https://www.lincoln.com/luxury-suvs/aviator/2020/
  3. These new hi-tech vehicles are actually rolling computer networks (several interconnected computer control modules). Have the alleged defective assembly’s been confirmed defective? If they were not actually defective you may actually have a defective control module or network connection issue throwing erroneous failure codes. I had 3 driver side headlight assemblies replaced due to headlight going out before they finally caught a headlight control module failure code and replaced the control module.
  4. I think the new 2020 Aviator is supposed to have speed limit sign recognition available.
  5. Our salesman at Westpoint Lincoln was very helpful. He helped us get a look at a Burgandy Velvet Destination Theme (the day it arrived before it was delivered to the person who ordered it) and actually mentioned X Plan possibility and helped checking that I could qualify. He is now a used car sales manager there. It is not unusual for dealers to add things to their inventory cars with very high markups (like tinting, etching, etc.) but will give away or reduce to cost rather than loose a sale. Since we ordered our Navigator at delivery they asked about etching, wheel warranty (those are very pricy wheels), extended warranty, etc. We declined all except for the Ford ESP full coverage to 6yr 60k miles (all that tech gets real expensive to fix/replace). I shop Ford ESP on internet ... there 2 or 3 dealers that will sell them at significant discount ... and take those to my dealer who inevitably, one way or another, will match or beat.

    Military Rebate on Navigator

    Since Ford-Lincoln dealerships can not sell Black Label and have all the Ford lines to sell I suspect they get fewer Lincoln unit allocations (especially hot selling models like the 2018, 2019 Navigators) than the Lincoln - only dealers. If this is correct, I would expect a Lincoln only dealership maybe more likely to honor an X plan purchase especially if you are willing to order and wait for it to be built. We wanted Black Label (the Destination theme sold us) so had to go to Lincoln only dealer (about twice as far as the Ford-Lincoln dealer we had dealt with before). The dealer had no problem doing our order on X plan.

    Lincoln Way iOS app issues?

    Working on my iPad Pro and my iPhone X. Is your app up to date?
  8. I would suggest a close look at the third row seating if you expect any adult use there. From my view the Navigator is unmatched in room (especially leg and foot room) in the third row.
  9. We really like the restyling of the 2018 Navigator; The technology all up to current best available ... question was if the premium price on Black Label worth it over Reserve with the options we wanted ... the we got to see a Black Label Burgandy Velvet with Destination Theme —— game over, ordered one. Delivered in April 2018 and we are very very happy with it. Color and interior is a highly personal preference but I think one will know it when they see the one they want.
  10. True that within Texas toll roads, tag read or license read will charge the same amount to a toll tag account but will take many days longer to post for license read. I am not sure same will apply from out of Texas charges or if they will even do license reads. Then there are places that will read NTTA toll tags but do not read license plates at all (DFW, DAL ... ). I do feel that the total lack of any acknowledgement or concern from Lincoln and from the tolling authorities is unacceptable.

    Cold air intake

    FYI: from 2018 Lincoln Navigator Owners Manual third printing July 2018 ... Automatic Transmission Adaptive Learning This feature may increase durability and provide consistent shift feel over the life of your vehicle. A new vehicle or transmission may have firm shifts, soft shifts or both. This operation is considered normal and does not affect function or durability of the transmission. Over time, the adaptive learning process fully updates transmission operation.

    Black Label benefits?

    Locking the drive mode

    I have noticed that when I set to EXCITE mode which is 4 wheel drive (‘4A’ in lower left of instrument cluster and ‘EXCITE’ in lower center) it stays 4 wheel on restarts (4A).
  14. <Begin Rant> I have had ZERO luck getting any definitive information. Lincoln Owners Manual (2nd printing) indicates to place in the dotted frit area to the left of the camera assembly above the mirror.. can not get any knowledgeable confirmation of there being a problem ... just people reading the manual to me or saying 'Ghee ... I haven't heard of any problem'. Much the same from the NTTA (North Texas Toll Authority) ... mount as instructions say (under mirror mount). If it does not work, bring vehicle into one of their locations (Dallas area ... I'm in Houston) where they can check for a windshield location that will work (if any)... If it doesn't work ,, nothing more they can do (for this I'd have to drive 4 hours each way) but they really don't know of a general problem. I have tried pretty much all possible locations. Right now I have a tag under the mirror as NTTA instructions say.... it does not read. Fortunately NTTA and the other tolling authorities in Texas share their databases and when the toll tags don't read they bill by the license plate even across the tolling authorities... just takes a week or so longer to show on my account (at the proper discount rate) and where toll tag read would be required (like DFW or DAL airports, were I still living in Dallas area) I won't have access. <End Rant>

    Extended warranty

    Ford ESP ... you configure it as you like (Miles/Time) and categories of coverage (I get it configured to essentially fully extend the factory bumper to bumper coverage to 6 years / 60000 miles). Some dealers will discount it (check on the internet... there are a few Ford dealers that will discount them .... I use prices quoted there to get an idea what I expect and usually get the dealer I'm purchasing from to match it). I've had a dealer (2015 F-150) better my best internet quote and current one (2018 Navigator Black Label) add to my trade in an amount to get to price. It will seem pricy ... 'til you check the price of some of the hi-tech assemblies ... of which there are m a n y in todays top end models.
