1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I picked up my 'Vic at 4 years old with 40k miles. Some laymen whine about lousy gas mileage but it's really not so bad when you consider how low the cost of maintenance is on this old school American cruiser. It handles like a dream and the V8 makes it a competitor on the highway. Somewhat awkward to drive on cramped city streets but that doesn't seem to bug the cops and cabbies much. I fully intend to buy another when mine finally dies, but at 90K she's still going strong. I pray Ford doesn't make the same mistake Chevy did and discontinue them.

Favorite Features

Roomy interior. V8 performance. Smooth ride. Crisp handling. Bulletproof reliability. Cavernous trunk.

Suggested Improvements

A little more horsepower would be nice. And I don't see why Ford couldn't make an optional hybrid Crown Vic to offset the mileage. I think that a Hybrid with the 'Vic's huge interior would be a gold mine!
