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!
