2006 Lincoln Navigator Luxury 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
Very comfortable to travel in, and definately noticed when on the road. Like it or not, people sometimes DO judge you by what you drive. Sound system, remote folding mirrors, retractable running boards, air- conditioned front seats and electric tailgate all get comments. The third row seating is adult sized, and the electric folding seat option is worth having. With judicious driving I get 18 mpg without much effort, but average 15 mpg. There is a big difference between city driving and cruising with this car. I've maxed 21.7 mpg on one perfect trip to LA.
I appreciate the sealed transmission (never check or add oil), overall reliability, and spacious comfort.
Third seat storage areas in the wheel wells would be nice. I miss an instantaneous mileage display, but can make the average mileage work for me. Another 12-volt plug in the front seat area would be nice.
