1999 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

The "cop car", as my friends call it, has had only one minor repair (idle air control valve $200) in the nine years I've owned it (original owner; 84k miles as of 10/2008), excluding basic maintenance, tires, batteries, and fluids. Not the best car I've owned (that honor goes to my 77 Pont Bonneville, bought used), but I'd buy it, again, if I could (Ford no longer makes it available to the public, although its upscale, sister car, the Mercury Grand Marquis is similar).


Best Features

Strong, durable, easy to drive; speeders slow down because they think I'm a cop, then drive off faster than before as they pass angrily by for my having slowed them down (maybe I did them a favor!). Even cops wave when we pass each other, so I just wave back!


Worst Features

Half the dashboard lights don't work anymore (I run the exterior lights when I'm driving, so I presume they burned out, but that's never happened with any other car I've had); the cruise control buttons don't work well.

Review

The 1999 Crown Victora is an amazing vehicle when purchased brand new. The rating on a new Police Interceptor model would be very good to excellent in all catagories, however when individuals including myself purchase these used police interceptors the opinions may not be totally accurate, mostly we are evaluating the current condition. Notwithstanding, my Crown Vic has 99,000 miles, impressive power, being white with dark wheels, honeycomb grille and spotlight its appearance is recognizable. Interior in very good condition, altho somewhat plain. It should be noted that for a vehicle this size and weight it has a sport car feel and ride. Overall rating for this particular 99 Crown Vic B+


Best Features

The preformance is very good, ride is comfortable with sport like qualities, even tho it's a 99 the style is still modern, appearance is recognizably police issue, individuals tend to get out of the way or even better stay away, spotlight is a neat feature, fun to drive


Worst Features

Other then wishing this vehicle was brand new, not much. Crown Vic P71 base horse power is porbably 235 so its 0 to 60 mph is not very good, about 8.3 seconds, should be more like 7.2 seconds, that would require about 30 more hp,

Review

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,


Best Features

Very good performance, excellent style. With the P71 people mistake the vehicle for a police issue. Fun to drive, good mpg considering the weight.


Worst Features

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

Review

Purchased 2/2008, 98,000 miles, $2700. Crown Vic has very good handling, excellent style. I installed extra reflectors that are well placed, interceptor emblem, converted to honey comb 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 converted to Goodyear touring instead of high rated, ride is significantly smoother. Performance is very good but it 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 fine with the center console installed, overall rating 8.


Best Features

Very good performance, excellent style. With the P71 people mistake the vehicle as police issue, more times than not other drivers will yield. Good overall mpg,


Worst Features

Interior design should have been a little more stylish. Increased hp by about 40. That would have propelled the Vic to 60mph in the low 7 second range, as is it is about 8.3 seconds

Review

The first thing that attracted me to this car was that it was a used police interceptor. I soon fell in love with the smooth ride and the way it drove. Hardly any problems with it, I have maybe replaced under $500 worth of parts in it. It was racking up around 120,000 when I hit a tree. I walked away fine from that accident, because my car took all the force. If that was a smaller car, I would be in the hospital or dead. I love this car so much, and even though I can't drive it because it's smashed in, it still starts!


Best Features

The safety rating. This has been proved to me! I also think this car has pretty good acceleration for a car like it. Goes up hills no problem


Worst Features

I wish it was more gas efficient! With gas prices at $4 a gallon, I am unfortunatly passing over buying another Crown Vic because I need something more affordable.
