I find that the Crown Vic is pretty dependable. It's had a few minor problems. Just recently I had the intake manifold replaced for "free"; there was a settlement with Ford about the intake having possible cracks because it came out with an intake that could crack. I've had to replace my windshield wiper motor twice within like 2 years and had air conditioner problems; that's about all the problems I've had out of mine. My Crown Vic gets run hard, it doesn't get babied around; and it still is running pretty darn good.
Some of my favorite features are: the nice full seats, light dimmer for rear view mirror.
I would like to see more leg room in the back seats, and some kind of dim reading light on the side panels by the rear window.
