2008 Lincoln Navigator SUV 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Power Folding 3rd Row Seat and 3rd Row Seat that can actually seat adults. Monochrome Package Interior. Power Running Boards.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Great sound system, safe, well built car, drives smooth, very nice comfortable inside looks


Suggested Improvements

The acceleration is unexpectedly slow for engine size.

Review

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


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

The exterior chrome and square gauges have a retro 1960s look. The interior is all about comfort, luxury and modern technology. Build quality is excellent compared to the competition. For someone who drives nothing but full sized V8 trucks, I was impressed with the gas mileage and power of the Navigator. The seats are very comfortable and there is all kinds of leg, side and head room in all 3 rows.


Favorite Features

Very smooth ride for a 4X4 vehicle, massive towing capability, second row captains chairs, great gas mileage for this class of SUV.


Suggested Improvements

Sluggish 0-35 MPH? The 5.4L engine has plenty of power but is hampered by the slow and easy towing tune. Use a different tune like the 2WD Expedition which is essentially the same vehicle but is much quicker from a dead stop.

Review

This is my third Navigator. All have been 2 year leases. I intend to buy this one at lease end. My first two had some electrical problems, especially with the easy exit system. This one been back once to replace the rear dvd, but other than that no problems. I love to drive this vehicle, especially on road trips. Gas mileage is low, but to be expected for a car this size. I really love the backup camera where it is in the reaeview mirror as it keeps sun glare to a minimum, whereas in dash cameras have that problem. Perfect family vehicle. The olny thing that keeps this car from being perfect is blue tooth.


Favorite Features

Power, running boards, mirrors, rear folding seats & hatch. Excellent ride. Smooth and quiet. comfortable and attractive interior.


Suggested Improvements

Blue tooth.
