Ford POS in drag......
By blacklumix on


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


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!

Best 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.

Worst Features

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