2005 Lincoln Navigator Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I have been a satisfied Ford product owner for 50 years. I have owned a 2004 and a 2005 Navigator and have been very disappointed in their fuel economy and the quality of construction. The 2006 has had transmission problems from the day it was delivered and it took 17 months for the dealer to get the problem corrected. The brake rotors had to be turned at 7,000 miles, replaced at 10,000 miles, turned again at 27,000 mile and replaced at 30,000 miles. This is on a vehicles that has 95% highway mileage on it. The master brake cylinder had to be replaced at 32,000 miles. The 2006 model is much noisier than the 2005 in terms of wind noise and engine/road noise.


Best Features

size and driver visibility


Worst Features

better gas mileage, lower wind noise, more reliability.

Review

After major rebates and 0% financing, car is still upside down after two years of payments. Rattles and clanks noticed from the beginning, service cannot fix. Aftermarket upgrades sold by the dealership installed too low and rattle. When rattle fixed, screw tore interior sunroof fabric. Aftermarket dealership DVD unreliable and not upgraded to play DVD Rs or RW. A nice vehicle but market value dropped after purchase.


Best Features

Stability control, anti-skid is great during rain or slick roads you can feel it control the fishtail.


Worst Features

Pricing to meet blue book value after purchase. Better quality, chrome is really plastic inside vehicle and scratches easily and loses "metal" look.

2005 Lincoln Navigator Ultimate 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought a fully loaded ultimate 4x4 navigtor in june 2005. I had both a 1998 and 2004 eddie bauer expedition prior to this purchase. The navigator's transmission shifting is awesome & smooth. I have 3600 miles on it so far. The engine is not quiet though when it is in park........It's embarrassing to drive up in this luxury suv and the engine can be heard. I am getting that checked asap. Besides, everyone gawking at my gator, or peeking inside the windows when they think i'm not looking.............This suv is close to perfect!


Best Features

Love the optional headlights, they light the road up. The dashboard is beautiful. Handles excellently. Kids love the wireless dvd player. Stereo is awesome......Love the touch screen w/voice activation radio & navigation i like the styling inside & out.


Worst Features

The power lifegate is loud. Engine is not quiet.

Review

I had never considered a Nav, I'm 6'3" - the Escalade was a huge disappointment - dash and emergency brake cut into my shin and leg! Happened upon the Nav by chance. Was very taken with comfort, pick-up and ease of handling! I was surprised by the comments about lacking power, as the "Baby" moves like a bat out of hell and thinks 90 is an appropriate cruising speed. Among the most comfortable and supportive seats I have ever had in a car. I will agree that the gas mileage was a kick in the head -- but considering it's size and weight it could be alot worse. All in all -- an A+ on the car -- which does not extend to the dealership --yuck!


Best Features

Seating, sound, comfort, pick-up and power running boards.


Worst Features

Location of window controls drive me crazy and figuring out where the front end is when parallel parking is still a mystery!!
