Review of the 2003 Lincoln Navigator

  • The 2003 Navigator is much improved over the previous version. With wow-factor playthings like power-deploying running boards and liftgate, more Lincolns will appear in the garages of hipsters, young and old.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Beautifully rendered interior, four-wheel independent suspension, roomy third row, gee-whiz gadgets like power-deploying running boards.

  • Cons

    Engine falls short of some of its competitors', unproven reliability for many of the new gadgets, some interior materials seem less than "premium."

    The 2003 Navigator may look like the previous year's, but significant changes underneath the sheet metal, such as a new suspension system…

Don't buy this vehicle!

Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Navigator Premium 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

We have 89,000 miles on this vehicle and have taken excellent care of it over the years only to find out it needs about $5,000 work of engine repairs. It is ten years old so we have decided to trade it in on a new vehicle. We certainly expected to get more miles out of this vehicle than 89,000! Come on people, this is a high-end expensive vehicle and we only got 89,000 miles out of it. What a useless piece of junk!

Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Navigator Ultimate 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

Oh lordy where to begin. Ignition coil problems. Electrical problems. Lincoln dealership cant even find out why the truck would suddenly cut off at traffic lights. Can't find why the car suddenly has a jark when accelerate. Power Windows very costly to fix (450). Have a lot of spare change cause you gonna spend a lot of money fixing this thing. Already have spent over 4000 and no end in sight. And ih yeah running board has a mind of its own, and did I forget suspension problems

Vehicle: 2003 Lincoln Navigator Luxury 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this vehicle with 55K and have experience only a few minor problems. Air suspension motor went out and lower A Frame had to be replaced. This has been a very dependable and reliable vehicle plus the ride is exceptional. Would definitely own another one.

I think Lincoln ruined the look of the Navigator. I have always loved how the 2003-2006 generation looked like, but this one is ugly. The front looks like an Explorer and the back like a Zephyr, or sh...
