1999 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan

Review

cheapest V8 full sized car I could afford. Two real weak components and they are the plastic resin intake manifold which tends to crack leaving you stranded. Other MAJOR weakness is the 4R70W transmission which has "torque converter shudder". This shudder is hard to explain but when it does occur (trust me it will occur after you've accumulated 20k per tranny fluid change) it is the most irritating thing going. I've had my tranny replaced under waranty and it still occurs but am living with this problem until I can squeeze another 3 years out of it until I dump the car. Next time I'll go with Honda or Toyota.

Best Features

4.6Liter V8

Worst Features

Go back to the metal intake manifold, re-engineer the 4R70W tranny to get rid of the "shudder". Ford had from 1992 to 1998 to get the transmission right and obviously hasn't.
