Introduced in 1998, the Lincoln Navigator is a full-size luxury SUV available in 4-speed and 6-speed automatic transmission. Despite its popularity amongst luxury SUV competitors, the Navigator suffers from numerous suspension issues. In particular, several Navigator models experience air suspension failure, which may result in an accident.
Lincoln Technical Service Bulletins indicate that the most commonly reported rear suspension issue with the Navigator is air compression failure. Rear air suspension failure may result in the vehicle's rear end being abnormally raised or lowered. This malfunction may occur while driving or when parked.
If the Navigator's rear suspension fails, the vehicle may fall extremely low causing the back end to scrape the tires, which may rupture the tire. Auto Recalls For Consumers drivers reported their vehicle "bouncing" along the road while driving with a failed air suspension system. Driving with a lack of any rear suspension will result in a rough and dangerous ride, especially at high speeds.
Rear air suspension repair costs are approximately $1000 to $1300 for parts and repair. If you wish to purchase the parts to perform your own repair, a rear air suspension kit costs approximately $100 to $300.
