Expert Review

You'll Like The 2009 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 2009 Lincoln Navigator competes well with its Cadillac counterpart in most ways and beats it in some.

I love the third row seating, but hard to get people into the back seat if you plan to drive with 7 people. Needed a new engine at 130k miles but warranty paid for it. Love the heated and air conditioned seats. Lots of space! Love the keyless entry. Automatic push button trunk hatch. DVD player will not work with headphones (recently).

We really love our navigator. With a large family we were looking for something large enough to fit everyone and all their stuff. Having small children it was a must to be able to fit everything they require when traveling. We love this car, as it is reliable, stylish and sensible for our family.

It is a family car. I can carry my entire family with extra room.

My vehicle is very spacious. I like I can fit my growing family and still have space for other things, like strollers and groceries. I like my navigator has a 3rd row for extra unexpected passengers. There is nothing I dislike about my vehicle, it fits all my family great needs.
