Shifter assembly breaks and makes it impossible to remove the key from the vehicle which could result in theft. Power liftgate will not work correctly which could cause it to close on top if you. Drivers side power running boards are faulty and become a trip hazard.

Noticed the air compressor ran all of the time for the air ride system. The car was still in warranty took it to Ford and they said they had fixed the problem. 800 miles out of warranty the ride side air shock went bad and burned out the compressor. Looked up old paper work and come to find out that they has put on a noise reduction kit on the compressor. So we could no longer hear it run. Contact the dealership as well as customer service at Lincoln. They told us sorry about your luck it is out of warranty. Took it to a different dealer and they said that the bags on the air ride system were dry rotted (the truck has 50,800 miles. He said this a common problem with Ford and Lincoln. They replace at least 8 sets a week. I had the right side fixed, new compressor. Now 7 months later the left side as done the same thing (55,000 miles).

The contact had difficulty with the power seats memory setting/power-folding heated exterior mirrors, and the power-deployable running boards. They worked intermittently. The power seats with memory setting had a memory function that should remain set at the driver's preference. However, it sometimes readjusted without warning. The power-folding heated exterior mirrors will not identify programmed positions. The power-deployable running boards will not automatically deploy when the doors were opened. The dealer reprogrammed the vehicle several times in an attempt to correct the problems. Afterwards, the aforementioned continued to work intermittently. No further repairs have been made.

Consumer disappointed in the quality and performance of 2004 Lincoln Navigator. While driving 40 mph or higher the vehicle would vibrate while the windows were down. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who informed the consumer that the condition was normal.
