This vehicle is very comfortable, has a heavy feeling, stable on the road; gets near 25 mpg on hwy; has required very little repair (some electronic parts replacement); has some of the heavier features on the police equipped cars.

Good solid car.
Watch the plastic intake manifold (it
splits and sprays water on the
alternator). Also, the transmission
can be faulty on shifting (it stutters
between gears due to bad shift timing
and faulty fluid).

My father got this car from a retiring
cop in NYC. It is seriously the
greatest car I have ever driven, and I
own 3 other cars; a 2003 Cadillac
Escalade, a 2002 Lincoln LSE, and a
1998 Ford Windstar. The Vic just gives
me a good feeling when I am driving it.

My 1996 Crwn Vic was a preowned
vehicle, garage kept and in EXCELLENT
condition! At first I was skeptical, I
drove a Ford Explorer and I was very
attached. It took a couple of weeks
and I was HOOKED! The power, comfort
and quite ride was wonderful, unlike my
94 Explorer with 197,000 miles. I Love
my FooFie car, I will never own any
other model. We have 3 Fords in the
family, all of them have over 100,000
miles. Now that is FORD TOUGH!!
