Why did Lincoln kill off the Aviator to being with?  Anyone know the story behind it?  I love my Aviator so I'd really like to know why the decision was made to axe it to begin with.

Who knows why they make the decisions they make. Most make no sense

The Aviator just didn't meet sales expectations (those lofty goals) I guess.  The 2006 model year's Cobra engine failures didn't help any either.

Sales of the Aviator didn't meet Lincoln's numbers.  Today, compared to sales of the MKS and MKT the Aviator would be a huge sales success!

I've been reading up on the Aviators of the past and did read that they encountered engine failures, but that engine isn't even being produced any longer so it's not a problem. And from what I understand, the new Aviator will be based on the same model as the Explorer.

I don't remeber that? Why would that have hurt the aviator?

The aviator was a downsized navigator, and didn't meet its quota! as far as returns on investment. What I would like to know if coil springs off a mountaineer could fit on a aviator? what would be even better if the shock assembly would fit on the aviator?
