1998 Lincoln Navigator 5.6

Summary:

I love this car!

Faults:

Glue was applied improperly by a previous owner on passenger side front window. Window has to be taken apart and reglued in order to work.

Rear side passenger window seal is falling apart, needs to be replaced.

General Comments:

I LOVE this car. It is now 12 years old, with 186,000 miles and I am the third owner. It runs like a dream! The ride is so smooth, and I feel safe and secure in it.

I plan on driving this until it will no longer drive, and then getting another slightly newer used Navigator. This is the best car I've ever owned!

Yes, a few things have needed repair, (belt, window glue, etc) but that is to be expected. Gas mileage is around 13 mpg, but I expected that. My GMC Envoy only got 15 mpg!

I had a mechanic thoroughly check this car out before I bought it, as I would advise anyone to do when buying a used car. But other than that, it's the best money I ever spent. I love this car!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1998 Lincoln Navigator 4wd model 5.9 V.8

Summary:

I would jump in front of a gun for this Lincoln Navigator

Faults:

Driver seat is wearing badly.

Front air suspension replaces twice.

Key wouldn't start car, needed to use remote start.

Car alarm blew up (literally)

Car needs relignment ever 3 to 4 weeks.

General Comments:

This car is great... I will buy another one once this one completely gives out...

There are not many problems with the car... just stupid quick fixes. The Lincoln Navigator is a very nice truck, but people have to understand that it is a Ford at heart... Ford suck... my Lincoln Navigator needs an alignment every few weeks... why I don't know... My key won't start the car, I first need to start it with the remote start and then put the key in the ignition and hit the brake, and then put it in gear.

As of today the truck is 100% fixed, I spent 5k to fix it, but it's as good as new...

I love this truck and anyone that wants to buy it, should! I have a little less than 528,000 miles on mine and these problems can happen; before then the car seemed like it was brand new every day I drove it.

528,000 miles? Sorry I don't believe it.

Assuming it's driven 5 days out of 7, it's around 250 miles/day. Plausible, although moving closer to work might be a more cost effective option.

How did you rack up all those miles??

Yeah, me neither. How could the reviewer have racked up all those miles when he was in the shop every two to three weeks getting another wheel alignment?

1998 Lincoln Navigator 5.4 V8

Summary:

I wish I had one for every day of the week!

Faults:

I have had to replace two coils around 100K miles for cylinders that stopped firing and the engine light came on.

Front rotors several times. This thing eats through the OEM rotors at about $300.00 a pair. I then replaced them with JC Whitney performance rotors that were drilled and slotted. Haven't had to replace them since! Highly recomended.

General Comments:

Just driving this truck makes people respect you more. This has been evident in many places I have been. Word gets around that you just bought one, now all of the sudden people start talking about you and how well you are doing in life.

Fun to drive. Comfortable. Anything you need and more.

Why would you want one for every day of the week? The one you have only runs one day a week?

14th Mar 2006, 19:34

I would buy one, but do not want people talking about me. I would rather have them talk about my sensible import that's paid for than a car that possibly has payments..

The author of the original comment who said he/she wanted one for everyday of the week was just using a figure of speech. I don't think it was meant to be taken literally. And who cares about an import? No where in the authors review did they mention paying a note or thinking of buying an import.
