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.
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
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.
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.
