The air compressor continues to fail, this causes the back of the vehicle to drop way down. If this happens while the vehicle is traveling on the freeway I am afraid that the vehicle can flip over with myself and my baby.

The contact owns a 2003 Lincoln Navigator. The contact stated that while driving approximately 30 mph the front and rear suspension failed and caused the vehicle to bounce abnormally. While turning the steering wheel he could feel the body of the truck touch the tire. The abs lights illuminated on the instrumental panel prior to the failure. The vehicle was inspected and repaired in April 2008 and had not been inspected for the current failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 140,000. Updated 5/9/11.

Within two weeks, a squeak and a clunk developed in the rear-end of my new vehicle. The dealer told me that the rear differential was missing two of the four bolts that should have been there and that the two bolts that were installed were loose. They said that they had seen a lot of that, because the plants had to manufacture a lot of Navigators in a hurry.
While driving at 30-40 mph consumer felt that vehicle rose in the rear and tilted on driver's side. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the cause could not be determined. On another occasion the same thing occurred, but the tilt was on the passenger's side, and again the dealer could not find the cause. The consumer felt that the suspension was defective.
2003 Lincoln Navigator--- within the first 60 days (5000 miles) of ownership the rear end was termed to be defective and a complete new assembly had to be installed. At 12,000 miles the rear end again has started making the same sounds as before. I took the vehicle to the dealership where it was purchased and I was told that Ford was aware of the problem and nothing was done to repair it.
I purchased my Lincoln Navigator in 1998. The problem I have is that the airbags filled up while driving and cause the vehicle to to swerve. The suspension stays in the up position. I have had this problem corrected once and it cost me $500. 00 dollars. When the airbags fill with air the truck is raised in the rear to a very unsafe driving height that shifts most of the weight of the truck onto the front wheels. The first time I encountered this problem was at 55000 miles and now at 96500 the problem has occured again. I'm sure the dealer will not repair my $50,000. 00 vehicle without charge, but I'm still headed for the dealership next week to get the problem corrected because it is to unsafe to drive in the condition it is in now.
