by CrownVicsRock on Jun 29, 2005 Vehicle: 1992 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan
Bought it used at 14,000 miles for $3500. It used to belong to an old lady who only took it out for short drives, but it was well maintained - no major problems ever. Very comfortable and spacious. Moved myself and all my belongings from Seattle to NYC (the trunk is huge!). Bonus: it looks like a cop car, so people get out of your way all the time. (It's only annoying when they get paranoid and drive extra slow thinking you're about to pull them over.)

Bought this car with 103k miles on it.
Had it thoroughly serviced and tuned up
by my brother a Ford master tech.
Plugs, wires a sensor and some vacuum
hoses. I also had the transmission
fluid flushed to correct a minor
shudder in the torque converter. Has
been a great car, 20-22 MPG around
town, 27-28 on trips. Trunk is huge,
will hold more than my minivan on
trips. I upgraded the shocks and added
a Posi rear-end. The car is a good
balance between handling and comfort.
I now have 157k miles on the car and
plan on keeping it

I bought this car in 2000 with 48K
miles for $7200. At over 6' tall, I
needed the room the Crown Vic offers.
With the fueled-injected v-8, it has
plenty of power when needed. The car
has 114K miles now and still runs
great. Only mechanical work has been 2
headlight switches and a starter. Also
the usual brakes and tires. This is my
second Crown Vic and when it's time,
will be replaced by another.
After a total redesign, the corny LTD moniker is dropped from name and the station wagon body style is deleted from the Crown Vic's lineup. Suspension improvements include gas-charged shock absorbers and rear stabilizer bars. Antilock brakes are optional but four-wheel disc brakes are standard.
