Love my used Navigator by jholdeng on 06/27/2012. Trim: 2005 Lincoln Navigator 4WD Luxury, Owned 1 year.
Pros: One of the best looking Lux SUV's from 2005. Easy to drive. Quite a bit of power for the overall size and weight. Power everything (except the step rails on mine). Air ride is smooth. Stock sound system is powerful (no navi for me). We had an issue (see below) and worked with the Lincoln Dealer to fix. The service there was outstanding. In fact I've never been treated better by any service department anywhere. Lincoln has apparently stepped up their game on quality and desire to help out the owners. I didn't even by my Navigator from that dealer.
Cons: We have just at 100k on the truck. Recently we had a battery drain issue. The dealer was extremely helpful in diagnosing and fixing. Turned out to be a faulty rear wiper draining the battery. My wife tried to insert a CD into the player without hitting load. Jammed up the CD player so it no longer works. Fortunately the radio is a double din size so a nice aftermarket DVD/Navi unit will fit in nicely and look almost like factory (or better). A/C seats don't cool as much as I'd expect them to. I hate to bang on gas mileage given this is a monstrous truck. I have yet to hit 18mpg in just highway driving. Usually get around 13mpg in mixed driving.
Overall review: I really like our Navigator. Hands down the nicest vehicle I've ever owned. When it comes time to replace I'll certainly look at another. I bought mine used and got a great deal on it! At 100k miles I fully expect to get another 75k out of the vehicle. It's a well put together truck with styling that hasn't faded after 7 years.
