Our Crown Vic has been an exceptional
vehicle. We bought the car in 1995
with 40k miles for only $10,700. The
car has been very reliable and the only
money (other than routine maintenance)
that has gone into the car was for
broken power windows (they made the
motor housing out of plastic!).
Leather has worn exceptionally well.
Very quiet and comfortable ride.
Enormous trunk space.
The paint has faded in many spots (it
has been out in the sun most of its
life, though) and the engine has always
had a slight spark knock while in over-
drive when using 87 octane fuel. This
is only noticeable when the engine is
under a load such as ascending hills.
