2004 Lincoln Navigator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I just bought a 2004 Navi with 133,000 miles on it. Normally I would NEVER buy such a high mileage car, but it is absolutely beautiful. Much nicer than my first one. They wanted 8600, I offered 7500 and we settled at 8000. The CD changer doesn't work-but they're fixing it, the rear AC making some strange knocking sound (which seems to be very common based on the reviews)-they're also fixing that, the ashtray door on front panel won't close, the heat and air on driver seat works only sometimes, GAS GUZZLER. Haven't had it long enough to see if any mechanical issues will develop. At those miles I'm sure they will, and I will rewrite my review when they do.


Favorite Features

Seats 7 people, full woodgrain package, beautiful cream interior, Satellite radio, auto fold down third seat, middle console in back seat, powerful engine, DVD player


Suggested Improvements

Problems with the rear AC

2004 Lincoln Navigator Luxury 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

6 out of 8 ignition coils went bad $250 per cyl; serpentine tensioner went bad $310; muffler sound deadener shot; trailer hitch rusting; rear hatch paint bubbled at 50,001 miles; rear heating/ac fan makes "popping" sound; air suspension not sounding right... CD player not working right.... and now, at 77,024 miles transmission just went bad - est repair $2000. For a vehicle we mainly drive to and from work and Costco, this so called top of the line gas guzzling beast should not have these kinds of problems at 77,000 miles. Ford should be ashamed. Instead, there is nothing they can do because it's "out of warranty" and they're "sorry you feel" like you were ripped off. No they are not sorry!


Favorite Features

None to speak of. Crappy cheap plastic parts scuffs easily and badly. Seat leather is cheap too and only partially wraps around. Air bag cover plate in front of front passenger seat never fit properly. Fit and finish poor. Brakes wheeze. No rain sensing wipers. Only 1 auto up/down window? In fact too many cheap plastic parts.


Suggested Improvements

10 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty like most cheap Korean cars. Hybrid anyone? 11.5 mpg average sucks.
