Review

My previous Crown Vic was 1992 with 175K, engine and transmission still good. But it needed tires and exhaust so I traded for 1997 Crown with 65K. These vehicles run strong for a long time, thousands of police forces can't be wrong. Great for long trips, comfortable, roomy, good V8 power, and gets 26 mpg. My experience is every 50K change the spark plugs, plug wires, and thermostat, they are easy to get to, unlike most V6 engines.

Review

I am not happy with the vehicle. Brakes, Brakes, Brakes at 64k i've put them in 4 times so far. At 24k transmission had a "washboard" feeling. Fuel line got a leak at 35k. Checked for recalls and found the the "police" version was recalled for the same reason in the exact same location that my fuel line leaked. Dealer said "not covered because it doesn't happen to the non police vehicles. Gee, looked like it did to me. Gas economy??? 12.8 miles per gallon. Have owned many Fords in the past...this may well be my last.....

A nice car

Review

Last of the surviving "real" cars America makes. The reason their used as cop cars and taxi's is because their reliable, comfortable, handle good, and reasonably powerful. They have a nice quiet smooth ride like driving a sofa. Oh yeah, huge trunk too (who needs a bike rack?). Great for long trips. I think the 98' body style is a little better on the eye, but thats just my opinion.

Good Car

Review

Surprising power with decent gas milage. Good on long trips with the family. Plenty big trunk. Handles well, steering kind of twitchy. Drivers seat uncomfortable but with electric adjustability I can usually find an acceptable position. My friends love this car on road trips.

Stealth cop cruiser!

Review

I love the look on people's faces when they slow down behind me to make sure it isn't an unmarked cop car. Power. Just put your foot down to the firewall - and HOLD ON! The fabric on the driver's seat is showing wear. On long trips there is not another car on the road which brings such pleasure to drive. I can't wait to buy a 2003 Sport model!!!
