1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan


Review

What you have here is a mule dressed up in cheaply made finery trying to impress the best. The car is a roving showpiece of mediocrity, poor build quality, and bad ergonomics. Annoying rattles, poor seat support, inadequate climate controls--car windows fogged frequently. If your desire is to drive a taxi, buy one. It's about all it's good for.


Favorite Features

Full size trunk. Roomy interior.


Suggested Improvements

This car needs a major makeover! Improve quality! Replace the injury inducing cup holders!

Review

good car, not real exciting but have had 0 problems. It seems to have a hunger for higher octane fuel than 87 will spark knock in summer (houston all year) with AC on climbing a grade.


Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements

Review

Ford's Crown Victoria is a far cry from it's predecessors of the 70's when it was known as LTD. Today's Crown Vic is cheap in every way. No longer a class act. Being a true full-size car is all it has going for it. Ford needs to put this one out to pasture.


Favorite Features

Huge trunk. Spacious Interior. Decent looks.


Suggested Improvements

Just about everything! Lousy fit and finish. Cheap plastic everywhere! Uncomfortable seats. Cup holders are annoying! Exterior trim finish poor. No locking gas cap! A fatigue-inducing car to drive.

Review

'98 Crown Vic is the best Vic for performance yet.The rear supspension is terrific on mountain curves and in quick city corners ,especially at high speed..much more so than my previous '95 vic. Mine has the perfornace and handling package wich provides the extra HP, and handling to truly enjoy this car.Up to 70MPH car is outstanding- - from there to 100MPH is when performance stands out , not down and no let down untill you do!!


Favorite Features

The on/off button on the gear shift knob releasing the "over-drive" which allows for one less gear and higher RPMs for much higher HP and quicker gear output !


Suggested Improvements

Relocate the stupid cup holder from middle of the console - it's a knee buster...have door holders instead!!
