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


This was my first car, and overall, it's been outstanding. The timeless exterior and interior design are, in my opinion, more attractive than the latest generation. I haven't had trouble with rattles or squeaks, and all of the trim pieces have been extremely durable. It's been very reliable, just a couple of minor fixes here and there. The driving dynamics are reminiscent of a much smaller car, and the acceleration is impressive. The air ride suspension makes Texas dirt roads feel like the Nurburgring. Naturally, fuel economy is a pain; I usually get around 14 mixed. However, I drive pretty assertively and use regular gas. Overall, fantastic vehicle, I just wish I could afford the gas.

Best Features

Air ride suspension, cooled seats, flat-folding third row, there's an AUX input on the DVD player (if equipped)

Worst Features

Loud windshield wipers, info center hard to see in bright sunlight, confusing A/C controls, window switches on center console take some getting used to, AUX input on the rear ceiling is a pain.
