I purchased a pre-owned P71 Police Ed., Crown Vic and have never been happier! Anyway, this car is very solid and easy to self service, engine compartment is nicely layed out- great for self fixers. The car has a lot of pep, really great handling, fast braking, can easily go super fast and has pleasent featuers-- need to mention that the trunk is hugh. I am a EMT/firefighter and need plenty of room for both people and cargo. Ride is very comfortable-- w/secure feeling, outside noise is almost eliminated but the engine has a nice pur when bookin it! Handles like a champ!
Respect- people drive sensible when they see you and that alone is like a safety feature. The horsepower is jaw dropping for a full sized and handles like a sports car! Besides being extremly reliable, this car has been easy to maintain. Inside is driver friendly and has been a good all around car!
Possibly fog lights for fowl weather, fold down rear seat would be nice and a larger glove box could help. Not a lot of room to put small misc. items such as cell phone, change, glasses or CDs. I like the V8 horsepower, so the MPGs aren't a complaint (20MPG usual, 26 highway- still good regardless!)
The Crown Victoria is an excellent car to carry six and all their luggage and stuff. I have a baby car seat, plus grandma and the kids. I like the five star rating in comparison to the SUV rollover problems! I can carry six people in comfort and safety.
The huge trunk! And a very simple car to work on.
Better mileage and side curtains. Dont mess around with something that works! Upgrade the looks of it but keep it a rear drive car.
