I recently bought a 2000 Crown Vic and I am in love with the car. Smoothest ride around, powerful V8, and comfort and quality to boot. This was an obvious upgrade from my beat-up 88 Buick Century and i don't regret it one bit. Complain about style all you want, I'm 20 and I think this is a sharp car for being a "geriatric" car. It is far from it.
Size of the car, 4.6 V8, comfort, ride, room, trunk space, safety, the look of being in a police cruiser.
Gas mileage at least in the city (approx 17mpg), hubcaps are creaky and constantly have to be pounded in, slow windows.
