I sent the manual to my kindle and have referred to it several times while sitting in a parking lot after driving. I am not a fan of the auto off/on feature and turn it off each time I get in the car. I think I forgot to turn it off today and while waiting at a intersection to turn right I saw a gap and gunned it, either the tires were spinning or something more ominous was slipping because there was a definite jumping/vibration from the rear that I did not like at all. Hopefully it was just tirespin over the painted lines in the cross walk, either way I did not like the experience. I am considering getting a FORScan device to turn that feature off for good. Other than that I am very pleased with the truck and have just shy of 500 miles so far. I appreciate the lane keeping feature and parking aides as this vehicle is much larger than our previous one, once Im comfortable Ill turn off the lane keeping feature. Still havent driven it at night so excited to use the active headlamps and experience the welcome mats. Coming from the car we traded in the Navigator is a major upgrade in every way, its actually the nicest vehicle weve ever owned or considered owning. I fear we have spoiled ourselves with the luxury and may never be able to go back, my wife drove her Honda Fit to work and texted me upon arrival how she missed the heated seats in the Navigator. My wife loves the seats and was glad we decided to get the 30 ways. We got all the windows tinted already and got paint correction and ceramic coating. Truck looks awesome. Love the HUD and Im only 56 so no issues there. We are really pleased with the fit and finish and really glad we went with the luxury of the Navigator over the truck feel of the Expedition. The only downfall is, at the moment, its just too nice to take it camping or down the forest service roads. Come spring fishing season the natural call to the river will win out. Having car seats and two kids under two has been bitter sweet, the sweet part are the wide doors and retractable running boards are so awesome for loading and unloading, the bitter part is kids are destructive, hopefully we can mitigate that as much as possible. Once I got the seats set, which took days and I still make minute adjustments, every is exactly where I want it and everything in the drivers position seems so well thought out and designed, I feel like the vehicle was designed to be a driver in every sense of the word, its comfortable when I want it and fast and sporty, sporty as a 6000 pound truck can be, when I want it to be. In a couple weeks we will be using the 3rd row seating so Im excited to see how functional it is carrying people. Overall we love the Navigator and feel as if the price we paid was justified, Ive bought several cars and never had that feeling.
