This is a very well made car. I have owned this car for 7 years. Previous owner was an older man who only put 52,000 miles on it. I put an additional 160,000 Miles on it since. I will keep it for another year, and will bring it to about 245k. It is the most reliable car I have ever owned, and along with the Lincoln Town Car and Mercury Grand Marquis is the Most Reliable North American Made Vehicle.
Reliability, V8 Power and Performance, Comfort, Size/Space-for driver and front passenger, Very Large Trunk, Rear Wheel Drive-giving it great performance and handling in good weather, Leather, Climate Control, Dual Power Seats, Keypad Door Combination Lock, and the Auto Dimming Mirror.
They came in 2003 with the addition of rack & pinion steering, and an upgraded suspension, and in 2002 when they got rid of the all plastic intake manifold which cracked on many Crown Vics, Town Cars, Grand Marquis, and Mustangs from 1996-2001. The rest are mute, this car is now only sold to Fleets!
I picked this up at a local auto auction for $800 3 months ago to replace my 2000 Grand Marquis I wrecked. It has the hard to find performance and handling package which is great, it is quick, handles great yet is still comfortable for long trips. Also can hook my boat up fill the car up with cargo and people and the air suspension levels itself out. These cars cost next to nothing too pick up used and keep on the road. 25mpg highway is not bad
6 passenger seating, Rear Drive, V8
Install engine and transmission out of a 2005 or newer mustang GT. Gas tank is not under the trunk as one previous review stated, it is mounted vertically in front of the trunk, The reason some police cars exploded is that they had guns mounted lengthwise in the trunk that punctured the tank
Headlights 4th set-poor design no quality. Front end - to light for size of car. Wind noise. Poor seat comfort. Rugs & Mats cheap material. Trunk interior paint poor, peals off and leaks water. Shocks to light for the car. Radio a piece of junk. Sold with a governor set by computer at 90mph. Cost you $300 to change out the chip. Large car should come with positive track rear end.
I bought my police interceptor a half a month ago for ,get this, 500 bucks. So naturally for that price I thought it would be a lemon, NOPE!! This car is great! Good fuel mileage for the size of car, lots of legroom, and lots of pep with the 215 HP on tap. Overall great car,would definitely buy another one!
Air suspension, Dual exhaust, RWD is great, Lots of power!!
Gas mileage could be a little better, but oh well. Interior lights won't turn off
I had never owned a large car before. I was shocked at the great gas mileage. It averages 24.8 miles per gallon. This is a mixture of city and highway. Man this is a smooth driving and low cost to maintain vehicle.
