    Hi! I bought a Vivid red 2003 Aviator AWD sticker price- 45,760.00. It has the moon roof and tow package. and 17" spoke machine alum wheels. I chose the 40/20/40 second row bench. No DVD (we have our own we take on long trips) and single cd with cassette. I love this car! I looked at them before the rebates and the sales guy told me to wait and they would go on sale. He wase right. I am soooo glad I waited. The sale price was 43,239.68 and $6,000 in rebates. We finances some to get the extra 1,000 back from ford. That is now paid off though so it cost me 63 in finace charges for that 10 grand borrowed. We paid 37,239.68 which is a savings of 8,500.00 plus off sticker price. Of course I still think I paid too much but this is the first brand new car I have owned in my life and I love it. The dealership really treats you special- calls me for my maitnaince checks- I have 3 years/36,000 mi included including oil changes.

    The fuel economy really stinks but I guess that is the price you pay for living big! I am worth it. I love the red color also. it has the leather parchmnt interior.

    The rear sensors are the best! They make parellel parking a DREAM!And I dont have to worry about hitting a garbage can or the mail box pulling out of my driveway anymore! I wish they had front sensors for parking purposes too!

    How does all that sound? Did I do OK?

    We just found out we have twins on the way, so I may be looking at the Aviator this weekend. Good luck with your big purchase!

    Just bot a '04 Ultimate from Pride L-M in Lynn, MA (north of Boston) - 3rd purchase from them in 4 years and each time felt like I got a decent deal. Equipped mine with every option (i believe) - DVD, Nav System, Pearl White paint, 40/20/40 rear bench, roof cross-rails, chrome wheels, Advance trac, trailer package, and moonroof. List was $ 53,800 - with incentives and discounts, i paid $ 45,800.
  • Could somebody post the X-plan pricing for the Aviator Ultimate AWD with options?

    Thanks!

    Navigation in 2003?!?!?!?

    Check edmunds.com or kbb.com for pricing. If you check the trade-in pricing, it is roughly wholesale.

    I am here in So Cal and my Vista Lincoln-Mercury dealership is offering me an '04 4x2 Aviator Luxury Trim with the added rear dvd entertainment system and the audiophile 6 CD changer sound system. Lease is 39 months 2000 down and 519/month. We have had 2 mountaineers from this dealership and have been very happy. What do you think? Good deal or not?

    I don't know what the "rebates" are at this moment, but when we bought my wife's Aviator a couple of months ago, I thought the deal was terrific! Around $7,000 in rebates, which included $1,000 as a Cadillac owner and $500 for financing with Ford, which we paid off at the 1st payment date. It was the rebates, plus $500 below invoice and a good deal on a trade, well above the auction price that might be normal in a negotiation. She loves the car! It was built early in March and we've had the dealer replace the ring-pinion/rearend to forestall future trouble with the "whining" sound mentioned elsewhere on these boards. Good Luck!

  • Mfenton, that sounds like a pretty good deal, I was just at Galpin in Van Nuys last night trying to work out a deal and basically it was the '04 4x2 Aviator Luxury with auto mirrors and moonroof. The problem was they wanted $3K down and $519/month for a 39 month lease at 12K miles per year. Maybe I just pay Vista Lincoln-Mercury a visit today.
  • I'm in a quandary. Being in the heart of GM Country (Detroit, MI) I'm stuck between getting a great deal on a 2004 GMC Yukon ($5.5K friend of a GM Exec. discount + 10-15% off). My wife and I much prefer the 2004 Lincoln Aviator although it's looking to be $2-$5K more for a vehicle that stickers about the same as a Yukon.

    We do have access to X-Plan pricing, but after reviewing some of the posts, it looks like X-Plan may not be the best deal after all? With all the incentives, I'm looking at about $7,400 in rebates for the Aviator. Has anyone had any success lately with applying rebates and getting more than $500 off invoice? I would imagine that's a better deal than X-Plan + rebates.
  • I'm sure you've seen my earlier post (#37), but I did a lot of searching to come up with that deal. But, I will admit, it seemed the dealer agreed to all of my numbers a little too quickly. Like maybe it could've been a little better? So, it might be possible. Go in with your "budget", your absolute bottom-line, and leave it to the dealer if he wants to move the vehicle.

    As for me, once I've made a purchase I quit looking at the papers.

    Good Luck

  • Thanks! The $500 off invoice I quoted was from your post!

    The wife and I have been driving around various lots today, both GMC and Lincoln. On Autotrader.com I'm finding 2004 Aviators for close to $30K. To me that's an unbelievable price. I would prefer to call the dealer prepared, but there's so little information on discounts, both X-Plan, dealer discounting, and rebates.

    When I find more information, I'll be sure to post it to the group. Wish me luck!
  • Just walk into any lincoln dealership and walk away with $10k+ of discount from MSRP (or if you are good, from kelly blue book price).

    Just picked up a luxury 2004 AWD model w/ rear dvd and misc options for $36k (sticker MSRP was 47k and some change).

    Most dealers wont give in, some advertise it right out. But *all* dealers have this incentive.

    Hope this helps. Oh yeah, this promotion ends 9/30!
