1997 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan


Review

Granted, it's an older car but you shouldn't have to replace the intake manifold for $1000 because it is made of a cheap material. Why did fleet cars get warranty coverage on this and personal owners didn't? Headliner is falling down, ball joints were shot, plastic door handle snapped off, plastic cover fell from above onto the driver's feet. Now we have a leak somewhere causing the floor to be swamped with every rain. Overall, mechanically pretty sound but body interior and exterior quality is very poor. Especially for a luxury car. Ford was really milking this cash cow when they sold this junker in 1997.


Best Features

Power + mass = safety.


Worst Features

Stop using cheap plastic parts that disintegrate. Ford had a solid car but chose to let quality slide.

1997 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan


Review

It's the most fun driving experience with plenty of v8 power. I can't believe it's only 190 hp! Smooth driving, comfortable leather seats. I like how the dash board is all digital. Now I need to put a cd player that can match the green lighting. I bought it used with 84,000 miles. And it's still smell new!


Best Features

digital info about your cars miles per gallon, v8 power with tons of potential for more.


Worst Features

none. this is a must own car!

Review

I bought th car with 292,000 miles on it from a sheriffs office I'm northern Minnesota and shes a lot of fun. Ive got 300,000 on it now and she still moves like a brand new squad car. I'm very happy with it and now my girlfriend wants one too since she drove it and saw how much people slow down and get scared when you speed up on there back bumper. Parts are cheap but I've done more upgrades than repairs. The neat thing is that the cops think im a cop and they don't pull me over for speeding. I passed a mhp trooper at 70 in a 55 and all he did was wave as we crossed paths. I'm keepin my squad. No its not for sale and no you cant use it. I'm having way too much fun. I will buy more of them soon.


Best Features

tons of power and one damn good suspension set up


Worst Features

i don't wanna change a thing she runs perfect
