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."

  • What's New for 2003

    The 2003 Navigator may look like the previous year's, but significant changes underneath the sheet metal, such as a new suspension system and sophisticated new technologies, allow the Lincoln to continue to be a popular and respected choice in the luxury SUV market.

Best vehicle ever

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

My Navigator is the best vehicle I have ever owned! I have had at least one of each major American made car and this is by far the only one that stands out positively. I have never regretted getting it like i did with the others.It is an awesome vehicle!

My 2003 Navigator is awesome- Bought with 28000 miles - Problems started at 65K, head Gasket a well known problem for the Cylinder head on these vehicles. In addition, Beware of the radiator assembly. The Transmission cooling system runs thru the radiator and when it comes apart, all oil from transmission cooling system will contaminate your antifreeze. Side mirrors crazy, and windows do not close at highway speeds. The car is awesome though, turns heads even after 6 years.

All time best suv

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

I bought my Navigator in 02 and it was one of best thing that ever happened to us. It is 100% reliable with its space and its comfort. Me and my family have went on many trips with this car and space has never been an issue. The car always held my family of 7 where ever we went. It also is a great car for towing and holds alot of weight. I would recommend this car to anyone anytime. It has a styling new look that lasted from 2003 to 2006 until the new Navigator and Navigator L showed up. I recently sold it and bought the new one but i miss the old 2003 Navigator




Really have enjoyed it

I bought this Navigator in 2002 and have really enjoyed it; I would keep it forever if I could. It is comfortable, quick to respond and a smooth ride. It continues to a reliable and comfortable family vehicle, with only a few minor problems in 7 years! It is just now beginning to show its age - just a little. I wish I could keep it forever, and maybe I will now that gas prices are dropping.




Best in class

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

This is my second Navigator. I owned a 99 and drove it to 65,000 miles with only one repair. The 03 was the first year out of the totally new design. It has had some "new model" issues, but all of them minor, and never stranding me. Mostly glitches in the features of the truck. The interior is drop-dead gorgeous, from the steering wheel, to the plasma display dash, reminiscent of the 61 Continental. It's roomy, comfortable, and the 3rd seat folds totally flat into the floor, with a power motor. The seating is extraordinary. I truly feel this is the best design on the market, and the best value for the money. The engine is great, but the mileage is poor, as you would expect.

I love this car. The only real criticism I've got is the mileage, particularly in light of recent fuel price increases. I researched the vehicle before I bought and the lack of power was something I read about. My vehicle moves along just fine. The interior is spacious and the seats the most comfortable of any vehicle I've ever owned. My lease is up next spring. I will watch the fuel prices, that's the only thing that will dissuade me from getting another Navigator.
