I just recently purchased an 03 Aviator that had been on order for about 10 weeks. Apparently, This is how long it takes if you order the vehicle with the new dvd navigation system. I purchased a Premium 2wd w/limited slip, sunroof, class III tow, 2nd row bench, and dvd navigation system. The order price was 47,795. I purchased the vehicle off of the Ford X-plan which brought the cost down to 44,508 w/o any haggling. Then, on delivery, I was able to qualify for the 3000 cash back, the additional 1000 through Ford financing, and an additional 500 through X-plan. The final price was about 40,008 after all of the rebates. There was no trade-in and no haggling. Overall, the experience was pleasant. The only bad part about all of it was that I had to wait 10 weeks. If you are anxious to buy, Don't order!!
#3 of 54 what is x-plan

what is x-plan and how can i use it?
Aug 02, 2003 (6:09 am)
It's a Ford program for business partners, friends and family. Most Ford employees have about 2 a year they can purchase on the X-plan. Most of them won't purchase their cars on this b/c they have the A-plan which is only for Ford employees and immediate family. They can purchase up to 4 cars per year on this plan. I'm sure if you could find or know someone that works for ford or hertz you could use this plan.

Just leased a luxury 2wd with Premium Sound System in Houston. With the $4000 rebates offered in July, the sale price was around $35,000.
The Aviator has been awesome. Comfort, practicality, and power have all been more than expected.

I've got a serious problem with my radio that has been going on for the 4 weeks I have owned it. The dealer refuses to fix saying it's not loud enough. This car has been in the shop for 1 entire week out of the 4 weeks I have owned it. Once for Rear AC unit. Once for stuck Thermostat which caused the engine to overheat, possibly damaging all the seals,as well as the transmission clunking. Once because the Front Transfer Case Seal leaked oil. And this last problem.. The rear main seal has been replaced. All the while they refused to fix the noise coming from the speakers. Even when the radio is turned off! I can't escape the high frequency humm.

I recently purchased a brand new (32 miles) 2003 Aviator with an MSRP of $40,225.00. After 5 long hours of negotiating with the dealer, I drove away in my new SUV having paid $32,540.21 plus TTL. My 2002 LS trade got me an additional $20,983.18 off.
