My 2008 Navigator is Metallic Red and I love it. Prior to purchasing it I had looked at alot of luxury SUV's. It is so easy to drive and has a comfortable ride. One of the deciding factors was the 3rd row fold flat seats with a button. I have owned an explorer, expedition and an excursion previously and I knew that I wanted an easier way to haul things without having to man handle folding or removing the third row seat. And then when I haul the kids and friends it's as easy as pushing a button to bring them back up. My kids love this vehicle because it is comfortable and there is alot of plugs for them to use with their electronics. On one 24hour trip we had a x-box and 2 laptops running and charging most all the time. The center console in the 2nd row is huge. Kids can store lots of crap for those long trips where I go crazy if the vehicle is a mess/disorganized. Only issue that I have had with this vehicle is the window motors on both front windows. Repair cost was $220 on each window. And this vehicle was previously owned by a rental company and we know how some people drive those vehicles. A very dependable vehicle. If you want a vehicle that looks good and can still carry the kids...this is the one.
My Navigator has 29,000 miles and has been a pleasure to use, it does everything very well, and is very comfortable on long journeys. I have had to replace all 4 tires at 24,000, probably because my daily journeys are not on freeways but mostly on side roads with lots of corners and stop start type driving. I fitted Bridgestone Duelers instead of the origional Pirelli Scorpions due to price and the poor mileage I got from the Pirellis. They are just as good in tearms of grip/noise etc, hopefully better for mileage. I have had to have the key remote replaced (stoped working) the gear shift switch replaced (jammed in drive) the passenger window regulator (window stuck open) and the vehicle has (applied its ABS/severe juddering through the steering wheel and brake pedal) several times for no apparent reason whilst turning a bend at below 30 mph on dry 80+ degree road conditions
