Decent Car for the Price
By statesec on
1993 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan
Overall this is an excellent car. I am the second owner and bought in '97 so I have nearly a decade of use with it. Overall a reliable car with the following caveats. 92-95 trannies need an overhaul around 90-120k (not a rebuild), valve seals are a weak point on pre '97; should only cost about $800 (dealers will often tell you need a rebuild when you don't), electric windows are weak and the brake/fuel lines can rust out when the cars get older on the pre '98 models (later models use plastic coated lines).
Smooth ride, easy to work on.
The earlier models 92-97 had some teething pains but still a decent car for the price.
