1996 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car two months ago. The car has the police interceptor package. I've fixed the handful of minor problems the car had upon intital purchase. It's fun to drive with plenty of acceleration and good handling for a car that size. Plenty of room for the wife and kids. Also a lot of metal around you in the event of an accident.


Best Features

The sheer amount of room inside and the huge trunk are great for a family. The performance upgrades are nice. Just becuase I have three kids is no reason not to be able to enjoy what I drive.


Worst Features

Move the trunk release from the center of the dash to the driver's door panel like a Maxima. Replace trunk hinges with a gas-strut assembly for even more room.

1996 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan


Review

Buy the police package if you can find one in good shape. I have 140K on mine with no mechanical problems whatsoever. For the price, you can't beat it if you're looking for a solid, rear wheel drive, V8, full size vehicle that can drive like a smaller car.


Best Features

Windows roll down with the key on acc., doors open from the inside even if locked, e-brake automatically disengages when car is in drive, solid suspension.


Worst Features

Performance is OK, but for a 289 C.I. V8, it could have more than 210 horses, especially considering what the new 4 cylinder engines are putting out.

Review

This has been a dependable car, with the exception of a few manufacturing defects that Ford isn't ready to believe. 1. Plastic intake manifold tends to crack and loose antifreeze around 60m+ miles 2. Ball joints have no greasing feature and tend to make considerable noise and will fall out at 60M+ miles. 3. Hood safety catch will let loose when going down the road, making this car extremely dangerous.


Best Features

Big car ride


Worst Features

Fix the above problems to make the car more reliable and less costly to maintain.
