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!!!
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)
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!
