This has been a fantastic vehicle - have hardly put any maintenance money into it other than oil changes and the like. Will have to replace front wheel bearing now at 127K miles - that's it. Curious as to the liftgate crack as it also happened to me. Is Ford picking up the the cost to replace?
I have a crack in the lift gate. It has not been fixed. did linc have a recall?
Rear Liftgate cracked in 2 places coming from the lincoln emblem
V shape following along the Lincoln emblem
The hinge at the top of the rear glass was out of alignment and eventually broke. Because that happened before the 50,000 mile warranty was up the dealer fixed it. Now the car has 125,000 miles on it and the hinge is about to break again and I have the signature "crack" below the glass on each side of the emblem. This is an obvious manufacturing defect. Is Ford/Lincoln going to stand up to fix it? I doubt it. The car is now 11 years old.
plastic on liftgate has a crack next to the lincoln emblem
Rear liftgate cracked in the center 3 times
The crack on the liftgate was there when I bought the vehicle. I have noticed that it is on almost every Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator models same as my 2003 Aviator
Happened twice before and Lincoln dealer repaired it free of charge. Just noticed that it has happened again and I am sure that Lincoln will not replace it for free this time. Is there a recall on this?
