1992 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

Well i bought my Crown Vic last summer and have bagged it to its limits aka ramped it, lots of drifting and gravel drifting, racing where it has hit the rev limiter countless times. The only thing that I have had to do to is change the tires a couple of times, an oil change and changed the brakes. These cars are awesome. The only bad thing is that the body will fall apart before the engine does. Mine has 280k km on it and still goes on road trips and is reliable!


Favorite Features

Bagging it. Huge trunk. V8. tones of room inside. Very reliable!


Suggested Improvements

It has body roll when cornering fast, so it could use better suspension. could also use a better tranny. Could use bigger rims ( like some 18" rims with a lower profile tire)

1992 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan Touring 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car for $600 from the original owners. I drove the car daily for a year straight, culminating in 1400 mile round trip from Tampa Bay to N. Carolina and back. The much firmer suspension, which is a bit stiff around town, was right at home on the highway. The car was stable and solid on the highway. The Ford also returned an average of 24.8 mpg on that trip. Upon returning home, I had problems with the rear air suspension and parked it for awhile. I have since converted to conventional springs in back. I still drive the car occasionally, and have no plans to sell it. One of the most nimble and athletic American sedans in its day, it still holds its own 13 years later.


Favorite Features

Superbly comfortable front seats, very good dynamics at higher speeds, amazing fuel mileage for such a large and powerful car, tremendously good brakes. Looks like a cop car, so civilians get out of your way!


Suggested Improvements

I wish the '92s had an off switch for the traction control. The Touring Sedan should have had better (fuller) instrumentation.

1992 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

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.)


Favorite Features

Spacious, comfortable, good acceleration. Fits 5 people very comfortably, 6 people if necessary.


Suggested Improvements

Would it kill them to put in at least one cupholder??

Review

The reason that I bought a Crown Victoria is that my in-laws have owned two in the last 20 years. My father in- law swore by them for their performance and comfort. I also have learned what the cars are like over the years and have come to appreciate them for what they are; comfortable family sedans with a little performance built into them from the factory. They do have a few quirks, like the transmission having to be flushed every 40,000 or so miles. Also the loss of traction in the winter due to the rear wheel drive and quick throttle response. Other than that I think they are very well built cars that still have a full frame under the body. 4 wheel disk brakes rule.


Favorite Features

Space, comfort and performance.


Suggested Improvements

Better transmission cooling and filtering.
