I bought my Navigator a few months ago and about a month after buying it were every in a 5 car collision on the interstate my navigator came out of the wreck with a dented bumper that's it... IT SAVED MY FAMILY'S LIVES INCLUDING THE 8 MONTH TWINS IN THE 3RD ROW.... you could never get a better vehicle and gas mileage all you gotta do is keep your rpm's low and you'll get hybrid mileage I love my navigator it's alot better than my 2000 expedition Eddie Bauer! Just watch out for those damn cam phasers! Keep a watchful eye on your engine if you get the slightest knock or tick take it to your dealer or trusted mechanic don't make the mistake I did and wait till it's too late and have a 2,400 repair bill make sure you only use Motorcraft oil and parts unlike I did I trusted a mechanic n got took to the cleaners and now I have to replace both phasers timing chain and all lifters but I will I love my car and it is worth every penny I spend! This vehicle saved my family's lives on multiple occasions since I bought it and even with the phaser problem it still gets me home so reliability is off the charts please if you are in a position to get a Lincoln Navigator do so you will not regret it, it is a fantastic traveling vehicle and local, the best part is that you don't have to have premium fuel.... For someone who's had the LINCOLN experience you will not regret buying...!
I've had my Navigator for a few months now. I was leasing a 2008 GMC Yukon Denali before I decided to buy. I originally bought a 2007 Cadillac Escalade but took it back because it was too much like the Denali. The Escalade does handle better and has more power than the Nav but I do like the Navs interior a bit better. Love the 3rd row seat and the power fold feature. Denali and Escalade 3rd row was terrible. Also like that the Nav can switch from 2W to 4W drive. Denali and Escalade was AWD. Nav takes Regular Fuel while Denali and Escalade took Premium Fuel. Overall I am satisfied with the Nav though there is room to improve on it to better compete with other luxury brands.
Power Folding 3rd Row Seat and 3rd Row Seat that can actually seat adults. Monochrome Package Interior. Power Running Boards.
Add remote start as a standard feature and fully intergrate it with climate controls, especially with the heated and cooled seats. Add heated steering wheel. Offer optional 22" wheels. Make the Monochrome's interior available on all
models. The Charcoal Black Piping, Olive Ash Wood trim and the Lincoln Star embroidered on all headrests really make the interior stand out. Add a bit more power to the engine. Make the Navigation Screen a bit bigger.
This car is an overall good vehicle. It has room for 7 passengers which makes it convenient for families with children. The car is very large and takes a little bit to get used to if you haven't driven an SUV before. The sound system is great. Very reliable and well built. The only problem we had was an electrical one with the window which was fixed under warranty.
Great sound system, safe, well built car, drives smooth, very nice comfortable inside looks
The acceleration is unexpectedly slow for engine size.
I bought this 6 months ago. it took a few weeks to get the hang of driving it. now I love it. Plenty of power. Really comfortable. Tons of room for a 220 lb 6 footer like me. just drove 3400 miles in two weeks on vacation with tons of gear and bicycles on the back. made the trip very easy. 17.9 MPG on trip. about 15 commuting to work and around town. many really nice features
power fold mirrors and rear seats. bun warmers and chillers. stereo rocks. loads of power for passing. room for 7 for guy trips. room for tons of gear for family trips. mirrors well positioned. auto 4wd worked great in freak ice storm. really smooth ride.
turn signal stick - basically blows. push the winshield washer and I "flash to pass" 90% of the time. the trim around the gear shifter is very cheap. the passenger kick panel kept falling down until i fixed it with duct tape. the memory seat feature has been broken since i got it.
