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. full 2006 Lincoln Navigator review

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. full 2005 Lincoln Navigator review
