2001 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this car with just over 21000 miles a little over a year ago. Great ride, great handling and excellent mileage for a V8. Now at about 45000 miles of mostly highway driving, the front end pops and squeaks like crazy and have already replaced the a/c unit.. Also, the CD changer croaked too.
Ride, comfort, electronic dash.
Better build quality, you just don't have these issues out of Japanese cars
