Pros: "Tough outside and runs great"

Cons: "Eletronic issues, mirrors, CD and air ride."

"This definitely appears to be a common issue. Our CD player is jammed as well, I gave up and won't even fix it, switched to satellite radio. Seems to be a common problem. Air ride air bags leak and the compressor kept running, so I switched these out for standard struts. Thank goodness I don't have electronic running boards."

"My wife loves driving my Navigator, she said that it feels solid. She drives a Mercedes ML series, much more sporty and faster.(Like her.)The engine is the same found in the winning Ford 150 pick-up The only complaint that I have with this and most modern cars is the plastic stuff inside. Things like plastic chrome door handles. After much use the chrome starts peeling. I also read that the Navigator has electrical issues and I found this with the electric exterior mirrors. My driver's side mirror misbehaves. But a good looking rig anyway."

"I have owned my Navigator Ultimate for 1 1/2 years now. From the 5.4 V8 to the Power Lift Gate, this vehicle has everything and more. I love the comfort of the ride, the leg room it provides for me at 6'2". We routinely have 6 people every Sunday when we go to church and everyone has plenty of leg room, even in the 3rd row seat for my son who is 6'5"."

Pros: "Very roomy inside for people & additional luggage"

Cons: "Engine and electrical design very poor"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"I eventually had to replace the suspension. A bad design using "air bags" which always leaked or ruptured. First repair over $2000, second repair just had the suspension replaced with a normal system. Electrical system flawed. CD system malfunctions, to repair cost about $800...sorry, cannot be repaired, has to be replaced. Electrical system does not work properly with the folding and unfolding of the side mirrors. It was my first American vehicle and my last, unless I get a Cadillac SUV which I am comparing to Mercedes, Infinity, and Land Rover."

Pros: "Ride, reliability, comfort, size"

Cons: "Gas mieage, paint issues, air ride not reliable."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Having owned several SUV's of various brands I have to say this has been a very reliable vehicle. Much better value then an Escalade. I had to replace the air ride at 160000 miles with standard shock/strut setup, CD player died, otherwise no major issues. Ride, size, comfort beats the heck out of my 2005 Escalade... So happy we purchased a 2007 Navigator in 2011. Another excellent vehicle except some paint issues."

"I could never afford a luxury vehicle of this caliber new. So I did the next best thing and bought a used one. I waited until just the right one came along, and I haven't been disappointed yet. It's at the age where some things are starting to break, but overall the value is still there. I don't recommend it if you drive a lot or have a long commute, because the 11 MPG will be painful. I plan to be the last owner of this wonderful vehicle."
