Purchased Crown Vic in 2/08, $2700. Crown Vic has very good handling. I installed extra reflectors that are well placed, interceptor emblems, converted to honeycomb grille, impressive looking vehicle. With the spotlight, dark wheels and recognizable style, people tend to move out of the way or even better stay away. Also installed Goodyear touring type tires, ride is significantly smoother. Performance is very good but seems to shift into overdrive at a low rpm, however push the pedal and the Crown Vic has impressive power for a heavy vehicle. Interior design is basic but with the added center console it is fine. Even though the Vic is a 99 it retains the appearance of newer vehicles,
Very good performance, excellent style. With the P71 people mistake the vehicle for a police issue. Fun to drive, good mpg considering the weight.
Interior design should have been a little more stylish, increase hp by about 40 hp, that would propell the Crown Vic to 60 mpg in the low 7 second range instead of the existing 8.2 seconds
