Re: navigator as first car

It would definitely be a safe car for her. It is larger than a lot of the kids drive but when you get used to something, it doesn't bother. Someone else may have more info to offer. They aren't on here real often but do show up.

Re: navigator as first car

Any large vehicle is a good starter vehicle. I know some might agrue that it's best to start small, but when starting with a larger vehicle the driver is less prone to do idiotic things (things that can be done in a small lightweight and maneuverable car. Larger vehicles take longer to stop, and you have to pay more attention to your surroundings.

If a Navigator can't be found in reasonable condition for the price, there are a slew of used Expeditions on the market that are just as good and for the same money you could get a 2004-2007 Expedition. Possibly lower insurance also....

The only downside is depending on the personality type of your daughter, filling up the vehicle with 3-6 friends might not be a good idea as she can easily get distracted and a large vehicle isn't as forgiving as one that's say, more narrow. If she can gab, and pay attention, then I say go for it.

I never had a first car either. I bought a 1990 C1500 GMC 5.0L V8 pick up. I now own two cars, a truck (SUV body on frame), and I'm licensed to drive anything on wheels.
