Exploding gas tanks
By jvaljon1 on
Vehicle
1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan
Review
We just found out a few months ago about Crown's propensity to explode and burn when in a car crash. Ford refuses to fix this now-well-known defect, unless the customer pays for the fix! We have a '98 Crown. We are both professional drivers, and I credit that with the fact that, on Texas roads, we have not yet become a casualty. But Ford's refusal to recall and fix this deadly gas tank defect (killed 2 cops that I know of, recently) has made a heretofore loyal Ford owner think very seriously about never buying another Ford. They built the car wrong, and it's their responsibility, not mine, to pay for this fix!!!
Favorite Features
Used to be the big trunk, believe it or not. Among other things, Ford puts their defective gas tank right UNDER the trunk! "Trunk Pack" just doesn't do it(The extra directions that Ford offers now, in how to pack your trunk so that it's LESS likely to explode in case of an accident)
Suggested Improvements
Recall all Ford Crown Victoria's, and FIX the GAS TANK so that the whole car doesn't explode and burn when hit from behind. PAY FOR IT YOURSELVES! That's the least of what you owe people who buy your vehicles!
