The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
It’s not cheap and it is kind of heavy, but the 2009 BMW M3 offers the kind of performance that brought Porsche 911s and Chevy Corvettes fame on the racetrack and on the streets. The 2009 Lincoln Navigator is a well-rounded, full-size SUV offering both luxury and performance.
