You'll Like The 2008 Lincoln Navigator If...

If you're looking for a big, roomy, highly capable hauler that's as quiet, comfortable and civilized as most luxury sedans, you have two logical choices. The 2008 Lincoln Navigator competes well with its Cadillac counterpart in most ways and beats it in some.

Engine sputtering but still drives well, the car is comfortable it just needs some work. And repairing a Lincoln is pricey.

I like the size. I like the reliability. I dislike how much gas it takes. I like that it can tow a lot.
