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


Review

This is an awesome vehicle- we looked at Escallade and the Navigator puts it to shame on interior comfort. Exterior appeal is about equal on both, but there is no comparison on the interior superiority of the Navigator. Performance of the Lincoln is just a tiny bit less, but is so much more than you need, the difference is not important. Very nice engine performance.


Best Features

We love the DVD, but it could have a bigger screen. The navigation system is very good. The sound sytem is awesome. The auto rear hatch is great. We love the reverse awareness sound on objects behind the vehicle. Hard to use another vehicle that doesn't have it.


Worst Features

Faux wood covering for the top of the shifter and for the latch on the center consoles would be nice. We did the aftermarket "wood" paneling on all the dash surfaces and love the look. Other than that this is damn near a perfect vehicle.

2003 Lincoln Navigator Ultimate Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Traded in a 99 Navvy on an 03. Felt like I got a good trade with the incentives etc. Have 3 kids. Boy has the Nav. matured into a high tech killer SUV! Doesn't surprise me that PDiddy likes it enough to put his name on them. The Escalade isn't even close in my opinion. As far as what matters in the real world, the Nav. has it. There are so many advancments, not just gadgetry but real useful innovative stuff! The 99 was very reliable and I hope this one will be too.


Best Features

Power remote controlled fold down seats, power remote control liftgate, lowering reverse mirrors, rear object sensors, HID headlights, awesome interior design and lighting, free routine service under warranty


Worst Features

Liftgate rear glass cant be opened w/o remote, Cheap latch mechanisms on interior console doors, hide the muffler

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


Review

Other than the side mirrors that may not always roll back to original position, I love my Navigator. I have always loved the grill on Navigator so have wanted one ever since I saw the very first Black Navigator in Norfolk, VA.


Best Features

Back-up sensor, in-dash CD player, steering wheel controls, dual play feature, heated seats, automatic rear gate just to name a few.


Worst Features

Fix the side mirrors so they revert back to normal position after backing.

Review

overall my '03 navigator is a vast improvement over previous models, an 1999 and 2001.. couple issues, but minor, - power mirrors do not function properly - climate control seats seem to have timer, works only 12-14 minutes - arm rests would be nice added feature - black brake dust on rims is never ending since new, very hard to clean


Best Features

-dvd player -power fold 3rd row seats -adjustable brake pedal -much better ride than previous versions, very quite, better feel of road.


Worst Features

- eliminated brake dust - arm rests - steering wheel controls for radio are to close to edge, very easy to change media source when turning vehicle - needs armrests on seats - leave climate controls seats on for duration of ride, should need to reset every 12 minutes.

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


Review

A great vehicle in your driveway and on the road. Lincoln listened to its customers when they designed this vehicle.


Best Features

Its tight turning radius for its size is fantastic. Options are very much on target. seating room is amazing especially in the third row. We have towed two waverunners for over 5000 interstae miles and hardly realize they are behind us.


Worst Features

Computer is small and in a very poor location. Chrome wheels turn black due to new 2003 brake pad materials. Wheels can only be cleaned by the dealer with acid wash. Waiting for a promised correction from FORD.
