Our 2003 has had two minor recalls and two instances of vacuum hoses cracking, causing the "Check Engine" light to come on. Easy fixes and other than that, no problems at all.

Lincoln Navigator Reliability and Durability: Pros

2006 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Transmission is very fragile. Google ZF6HP26 problems. This is the german trans ford put in this truck. Very expensive to repair.
2005 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic RWD
I came to the Navigator after having owned (in no particular order) 2 BMWs, a 964-series Porsche, an MKIII Golf, and a 1st gen Jeep GC. Being something of a Euro-snob at the time, I approached the Navigator with some contempt. To my surprise, the Navigator has been almost trouble free, with only a single repair ($500) in the 50K miles I have driven it. I bought it because the price was right and I needed a full size SUV. The previous owner and his kids had abused the interior and it smelled awful, so I expected a lot of problems. I have been pleasantly surprised with the low operating costs.
