    Default To Trade or Not to Trade

    My dad is going to get a new 2008/9 Lincoln Navigator L sometime in the next three months. But my question is, should I convince to stay with our trusty steed or go new with the new high tech Navigator L? There is an order guide you may want to see.

    2008/2009 Lincoln Navigator L





    Update: 2009 Lincoln Navigator has 10 more HP! http://www.lincoln.com/navigator/home.asp

    it's not up to us dude. if you really like the car, keep it. read some reviews about the new one if it's worth getting it.

    I can't decide. Too hard, I love our steed, but my dad wants to replace it! I've read all reviews and it's all good, but what about the fact it made me this car fanatic today?

    08/09 looks way better.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    With the incentives, it's actually going to be $48,000, or about the MSRP of the 01 when it was new. Plus try looking in the order guide for informantion of the car. It has SYNC and a lot more. It's quite practical, but that's always hidden. One of our 2001 would always automatically put the parking brake on if it detects any chance of rolling and deactivate the parking brake when not in park.

    Why not get a smaller car that doesn't use so much fuel, and stop contributing to global warming?

    Personally, if you really need an SUV for whatever reason, I'd suggest the Volvo XC90. Safe (Volvo), practical (7 seats), not gas guzzling (well not as much as the Lincoln), better build quality (but then you may not care so much about that) etc etc... Plus, it's still under the Ford umbrella!

    Or you could just disregard everything I said and treat me like i'm not here.... <walks off dejectedly>

    I agree.

    The Lincoln Navigator is a very very large car and looks fugly from the rear on the 09' version.

    Why not just stop worrying about something you can't control. It's your parents car they will do as they please.

    Side note the new one looks nicer. Second side note, it's still a Lincoln . Third side note, buy a Range.

    If I had to go along with the "which one to choose" idea it would have to be the new L. I like the looks of it and especially in black it looks very menacing, more so than the old 2001 model. Thats just my opinion though...

    I've actually rented one in Florida. It wasn't good to be honest: $59,000 MSRP?

    Jerky transmission, bad support, worser stereo, fake low engine sound? No way.
